Natalie Merchant – Wonder Lyrics 14 years ago
I sincerely doubt this is a pro-life song. That doesn't sound like Natalie. It is definately an uplifiting song and makes me feel good everytime I hear. So few songs are positive and speak of joyful things. This one just makes your heart melt.

David Mead – Only In The Movies Lyrics 15 years ago
This is a very haunting and sad but true song. Too often we think that things should just work out in life because we have seen too many films or read too many fairy tales when really things don't work out unless you put a lot of energy into them, especially relationships.

Franz Ferdinand – Evil and a Heathen Lyrics 15 years ago
This song, like most of FF songs, rings of homosexuality. Gays are seens as evils and heathens in the Catholic Church. The line about Utrecht relates to an uprising against the church hundreds of years ago. Read more about it here - http://torc.blogspot.com/2005_02_27_torc_archive.html

Van Halen – Love Walks In Lyrics 15 years ago
"It's been a long, long time, but back in about '68, in Fontana, California, I had this unbelievable experience that would take this whole interview to even go into," Hagar told Guitar World magazine recently. "But I'm a firm believer — have seen, have felt, have been contacted three or four different times. I have received information that has been valuable in my life from those people, and they have used me. I'm gonna sound like a complete nut here, but they have used me in an experimental fashion. The easiest way to put it is that they downloaded my brain information. When I was about 19 or 20, they downloaded everything that was in my head. And I caught 'em doin' it! I woke up in the middle of the night, thinkin', 'What's goin' on?' They were like, 'Oh, my god, he's waking up!' But this was all telepathy — there were no words being spoken. And as soon as I woke up — it was probably three o'clock in the morning — my whole room was so bright that I could hardly keep my eyes open. I was wide-awake, I could not move, eyes open, white room, they were still disconnecting — and when they did, it just went bang! Everything went back to normal, back to black. I was shaking, I almost passed out, I was sick to my stomach and almost had to throw up, it was so scary…

Too Much Joy – Theme Song Lyrics 15 years ago
This song was referrenced by Newt Gingrich when he was speaker of the house. he used the 'to create you must destroy' phrase. The band dind't take too kindly to that.

Descendents – Cool To Be You Lyrics 16 years ago
The smiling knives are the people who are "cool" and the scars are the insults Milo and the gang feel. This song does rock. The first thing I thought of were self-righteous born agains who are so nice and happy but really they are hypocrates cutting other people to conform to their lives.

Oingo Boingo – Out Of Control Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is obviously about suicide. A great song. The Elfman is saying that how he would like to help the person get out of it, but they have to do it themself. The only thing he can tell them is that things will get better and ending your life is not the answer.

submissions
Yellowcard – Ocean Avenue Lyrics 16 years ago
The video is a take on the excellent German film Run Lola Run in which a girl repeats the same day three times, trying to save her boyfriend from being killed by a bunch of thugs.

Badly Drawn Boy – Disillusion Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is about how he wants to get in some girls pants and have a good time. She wants to have him as her boyfriend. They aren't seeing eye to eye.

Morrissey – Alsatian Cousin Lyrics 16 years ago
What makes you think the other person is a girl. "His desk" and "His reply". It sounds like two men.

Morrissey – The Lazy Sunbathers Lyrics 18 years ago
This songs is extremely appropriate now. Many here in the state are concerned about the war and vacationing overseas, where as others here are planning their vacations to Vegas and Hawaii to forget about everything.

submissions
The Smiths – You've Got Everything Now Lyrics 18 years ago
He has got everything now, or has he? He may have the material things but Morrissey never recalls him laughing. "Who is rich and who is poor, I cannot say". I don't really know what is he implying about the back of the car.

New Order – The Perfect Kiss Lyrics 18 years ago
This song I always figured was about finding the perfect something or someone and enjoying the hunt. A great song heard live, especially when the "frogs" are heard.

New Order – World In Motion Lyrics 18 years ago
This was England's theme song during the World Cup in 1994.

New Order – Fine Time Lyrics 18 years ago
I thought this was an anti-drug song. After reading the lyrics it sounds like an underage dating song. I am confused.

Good Charlotte – Emotionless Lyrics 18 years ago
I think this song is used in Madden 2003

Indigo Girls – Closer to Fine Lyrics 18 years ago
They are trying to tell you to quit finding meaning with life. It only will make you questioning more and dig you deeper into a pit of sorrow.

Instead, we should live it up because it is "just a life". Don't look to God, exercise, Tibet, therapy, or some magic potion to make your life worthwhile. Get out there and have a blast and quit preoccupying your mind with what might make you happy and enjoy life's ups and downs.

The Clash – This Is Radio Clash Lyrics 18 years ago
Basically, he is trying to wake people up to tell them the truth about "the man". The "Radio Clash" is informing all about the ills of the planet and how we need to act.

The Offspring – Americana Lyrics 18 years ago
Agree with Fear and Rave.

One more side comment if anyone caught on to this. This album seems to be a response to the Who. They sang about "My Generation" and how it was doing fine. They also had a hit with "The Kids Are Alright". 30 years later Americana talks about how "The Kids Aren't Alright". Dexter even sings the line "my generation" in this song just as Roger Daltry did on "My Generation". We've gone from people fighting for love and peace to people just fighting for their props? Why they deserve them, we don't know.

submissions
The Offspring – Defy You Lyrics 18 years ago
This song is about not taking shit from anyone. The more they try to push you around, the more you are going to want to get back up and push them back harder.

On a side note, do you think that "Can you leave it all behind?" is a reaction to U2's song "Walk On"?

Annie Lennox – Train In Vain (The Clash Cover) Lyrics 18 years ago
Remake of The Clash classic

Annie Lennox – Why Lyrics 18 years ago
Here is my intepretation:

The song is about someone who cheated on someone else ("How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done "/"I may be viciously unkind").

They feel really bad and they aren't truly a bad person but they just got screwed up. They feel that the other person may be too good for them ("And I've heard it said too many times That you'd be better off ") so they got scared.

She/He tries to apologize but the other person doesn't want to forgive right away. Instead they just say thinks to hurt the other person ("But when I start to try to tell you That's when you have to tell me Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun"/"Some things are better left unsaid But they still turn me inside out ").

The song in the point of view of the adulterer to show that they are human and have feelings even though they hurt the other.

submissions
Morrissey – The Lazy Sunbathers Lyrics 18 years ago
Classic Morrissey. I find this to be one of his most fun songs lyrically, along with "Mute Witness". I think we all know some Lazy Sunbathers who just look good and seem to only care about themselves. Secretly, we are all somewhat jealous of them

submissions
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Scar Tissue Lyrics 18 years ago
Here is my interpretation:

Scar tissue - at first I thought it was about drugs/heroin, which is what most of their songs are about.

After reading the complete lyrics, I think it is a man in prison ("with birds I share this lonely view"). Maybe he got mixed up with this southern girl and gave her some bad heroin and she OD'ed and he got blamed or she was his girlfriend. Now he is in jail for selling or using.

Green Day – Waiting Lyrics 18 years ago
The song is basically about life. The downtown lights are metaphors for goodness. The song is saying that we aren't aware that right now these are our best days. We just need to open up our eyes. The moment that he has been so long waiting for is the moment he accepts his life and enjoys it.

Starsailor – Good Souls Lyrics 18 years ago
One of the top 10 songs of the this millenium.

Dramarama – Anything, Anything Lyrics 18 years ago
What ever happened to go buy it? Anyway, yes this is a great song. Way ahead of its time considering it came out in the mid to late 80s. I know exactly what this guy is talking about. You are into a girl and everything is great. The next minute she is going nuts and you have no idea why.

submissions
Coldplay – Yellow Lyrics 18 years ago
To me "Yellow" always symbolized being a coward. Maybe he is fully infatuated with her but won't get close because he is intimidated by her beauty. He is keeping his distance just like the starts are, admiring from afar. Just a thought.

submissions
Morrissey – Do Your Best And Don't Worry Lyrics 18 years ago
This song comes in the transition phase in Morrissey's life where he seems to be evolving from his gloom to a more update attitute. Perhaps his move to L.A. contributed to this.

submissions
The Smiths – Panic Lyrics 18 years ago
This song was Morrissey's answer to 80's new wave dance music. The press construed this as being anti-black music and therefore was accused of being a racist. I quite disagree and totally relate to shallow love songs that "say nothing to me about my life".

10,000 Maniacs – These Are Days Lyrics 18 years ago
Somehow this song got onto our wedding video. I couldn't think of a better song that fit the moment. The problem is we never really realize that these are the days. I think they are saying that once you realize you are in the moment you will understand and quit thinking about the past and the future, that is the true joy and peace overcomes you.

10,000 Maniacs – What's The Matter Here? Lyrics 18 years ago
A great melody and message about child abuse. I'd like to slap that mom silly.

The Smiths – Frankly, Mr. Shankly Lyrics 18 years ago
This is about a record executive for the Smith's record label. Morrissey had no respect for the guy. One day the exec showed Morrissey some poetry he had written, which Morrissey obviously didn't like ("I didn't realise you wrote such bloody awful poetry ")

submissions
Morrissey – The National Front Disco Lyrics 18 years ago
Another song that can be seen as Morrissey being racist, which he firmly denies. It is about David who becomes a skinhead and very much against for keeping "England for the English".

Morrissey – Billy Budd Lyrics 18 years ago
This is taken from the Herman Melville work.

submissions
Morrissey – Bengali In Platforms Lyrics 18 years ago
This song has been interpretted as being very racist toward immigrants, notably Indians, in Great Britain, Morrissey's homeland. They can be construed as coming from Morrissey or from the people of England. This is obvious through the lyrics "That life is hard enough when you belong here " and "shelve your plans,"

submissions
New Order – Love Vigilantes Lyrics 18 years ago
I've known the lyrics for years but still don't know what exactly this song means. I know it is a man returning from a war to be with his wife and kid but what is the point. I heard that this was based on a true story and the soldier found his wife dead. She had killed herseld a la Romeo and Juliet or she had a heart attack from finding out the bad news.

Depeche Mode – But Not Tonight Lyrics 18 years ago
A song about rebirth. The rain is washing away all of the crap in his life at least for the time being until all of the "debauchery" returns again.

Depeche Mode – World Full Of Nothing Lyrics 18 years ago
This is such a sweet simple song. It best describes any first sexual encounter. Even though the person you lost your virginity to may not be your soulmate. Everyone remembers them.

Depeche Mode – Just Can't Get Enough Lyrics 18 years ago
This is the quintessential Depeche Mode song. It is so bubbly and electronic that it makes me all giddy inside, and I consider myself a manly man. This is a song I crank up on the car radio but make sure my windows are rolled up.

submissions
The Cure – Mint Car Lyrics 18 years ago
This song is the one of the most upbeat songs, not only for a goth band, but for any group. I wanted to this to be our wedding song but my wife didn't like the idea.
