The Benjamins – Dr. Frank Was Right Lyrics 19 years ago
It`s good how they`ve managed to get amusing lyrics into a sad song

submissions
The Benjamins – Wonderful Lyrics 19 years ago
This song has some of the best verses ever. And the start rules.

AFI – The Nephilim Lyrics 19 years ago
The Nephilim were supposedly the offspring of 'the sons of God' and the 'daughters of men'.
They were therefore some sort of inbetween angel and human race who happened to be giants (although they were originally called giants because of a mistranslation of 'gigantes' which means 'born of Earth').
Nephilim means 'fallen one'

'Like an angel with two broken wings' - Nephilim are like angels but on Earth
'Like a devil, meant for better things' - devils are fallen angels, as were the 'sons of God' that produced Nephilim but humans are better than demons
As for the rest of it I really don`t know

All a bit weird but that`s the bible for ya - be sceptical of it.

Anyway, of course it`s a great song - it`s on the best album ever.


'I will die screaming'

Son Of Sam – Purevil Lyrics 19 years ago
Davey Havok`s a fuckin` genius and this band is a punk/hardcore allstars line-up. Very graphic song.

submissions
AFI – A Winter's Tale Lyrics 19 years ago
I think this is another one relating to sleep phenomena - inanimation (stillness), comfort, somnambulance (sleepwalking), night. I dunno. But it`s one of their best.

submissions
Rise Against – My Life Inside Your Heart Lyrics 19 years ago
This band is just amazing. 'Take ... my ... hand'

submissions
AFI – Narrative of Soul Against Soul Lyrics 19 years ago
Jade`s backing vocals are always great. Even since before he was a full member of the band.

submissions
Rise Against – Six Ways 'Till Sunday Lyrics 19 years ago
It`s hard not to really feel the end part. And throughout the song it has some of the best self-explanatory lyrics in punk music. I never tire of this song - everything about it rules.

I miss the person that you were but I don`t miss you

That line strikes such a chord w/ me.

Nuff respect. The Unraveling is an album packed w/ special moments.

submissions
AFI – Wester Lyrics 19 years ago
I don`t think the 'smile' is in there. Just a groan. And what are the backing vocals in the breakdown? One of the things that makes AFI special to me and takes them apart from other bands is the way they use backing - even if it`s just 'ooohhh' like in Days of the Pheonix.

submissions
Scorpions – Wind Of Change Lyrics 19 years ago
This seriously is one of the greatest songs ever made. And the first time it really hit home for me was when a bunch of my mates from Romania performed it acoustically. Incredible.

submissions
Girls Against Boys – One Dose Of Truth Lyrics 19 years ago
Written for the film Series 7 and is about reality TV. Great song.

submissions
The Smiths – Frankly, Mr. Shankly Lyrics 19 years ago
Great song - with one of my favourite basslines. Fun to listen to and to play. Fairly obvious what it`s about: wanting to be famous and not wanting to work for a boss you hate in a job you hate but needing the money.

submissions
AFI – The Chicken Song Lyrics 19 years ago
Why not, indeed. Makes sense that it was written by Jade - he`s a funny guy. So`s Adam Carson.

submissions
AFI – Dream Of Waking Lyrics 19 years ago
I`ve only just got hold of this song and I think it`s amazing! I did like the original members but Jade and Hunter rule! The Art of Drowning is the best album ever and I can`t wait for the new one in the Summer.

submissions
AFI – Who Said You Could Touch Me? Lyrics 19 years ago
Same kinda feel as 'This Secret Ninja'. I get the impression that as much as AFI appreciate their fans, Davey likes to keep himself to himself. Similar in some ways to Kurt Cobain.Jade and Adam are the more 'fun' characters.

submissions
AFI – This Secret Ninja Lyrics 19 years ago
That was the impression I got from the song. Similar to 'Who said you could touch me?' One of my favourites.

submissions
The Offspring – Totalimmortal Lyrics 19 years ago
Not a bad cover. Most bands would probably have ruined the song but Dexter knows AFI too well to do that. Doesn`t have the edge of the original which is one of the best songs by one of the best bands ever.

submissions
AFI – Weathered Tome Lyrics 19 years ago
'Twenty four hours spent wishing that the day was never ending' is a lyric that has really stuck with me. I just think it`s great. Not sure what the song is getting at but I think it`s something to do w/ nostalgia, society and moving on.

submissions
AFI – Morningstar Lyrics 19 years ago
A lot of AFI songs have religious under/over-tones this one has an obvious relation to the devil (which I don`t think Davey actually believes in). But it`s written in the first person and relates to himself and their is a connection with the 'Ghost upon the stage' to Days of the Pheonix ('the circle of rage, the ghost on the stage appeared'). How it all fits together I am not sure and I don`t think it really matters. It`s just part of what makes them so great. Anyway, beautiful song, great ending, love it.

submissions
Nirvana – Something in the Way Lyrics 19 years ago
He didn`t live under a bridge long term - just a few nights occaisionally. I can`t remember where it is but after he died loads of people went there and wrote loads of stuff on it - along w/ the stuff he`d written there. Fact. Whatever this song is about, that did happen.

submissions
Something Corporate – Konstantine Lyrics 19 years ago
To call this nine minutes of bland moaning is far off-target. I think the sentiment of it is a bit over-the-top but it`s still an incredible song. One of my mates said it does drag on a bit but still told other mates to get me to play it to them (being in England they`re hard to come by) and did appreciate - which you have singularly failed to do - that there is a sodload of talent there. Ben Fold`s Five are no way near as good as these and as for the 'cheese' comment just leave it. But I do agree w/ you on the point about the emergence of emo. PULL YOURSELVES TOGETHER. I love emo - but there`s no need to internalise what you hear. You`re too young to care so much about these kinds of things. Anyway - `nuff said. Great band, incredible song, excessive emotion.

submissions
Grade – And Such is Progress Lyrics 19 years ago
The narrative parts remind me of 'Where the Circle Ends' by Thursday and is in a similar take on the way of the world. Superb song.

submissions
Neil Young – My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue) Lyrics 19 years ago
Kurt Cobain quoted this song in his suicide note. It might actually itself be about suicide.

submissions
Nirvana – Something in the Way Lyrics 19 years ago
I heard that this WAS written about the time he spent living under a bridge after being kicked out of home. He went to live w/ his school principle but sometimes wanted to get away and would spend a few nights under the bridge. Might not be right but it makes sense.

submissions
Thursday – Concealer Lyrics 19 years ago
This song has one of the best screaming parts ever. I love Thursday and until I got into Grade had not heard any bands like them that are any good. Great use of analogy and simile. Graphic, stirring, brilliant.

submissions
Thursday – Where The Circle Ends Lyrics 19 years ago
This is a very bleak but all too real view of modern society. Well written, brilliantly crafted song.

submissions
Raised Fist – Breaking Me Up Lyrics 19 years ago
The sheer energy of Raised Fist gets me every time. Especially with this one. If anyone knows the lyrics to 'Pretext' PLEASE post them.

submissions
Something Corporate – If I Die Lyrics 19 years ago
Even if you ignore the lyrics the deliverance of this song is just outstanding.

submissions
Something Corporate – Konstantine Lyrics 19 years ago
I`m so glad this song has been so well received. Nobody I know has ever heard of Something Corporate so over the last couple of months I`ve been forcing people to listen to them. Not a bad word has been said.

submissions
Something Corporate – Konstantine Lyrics 19 years ago
I hate love songs but this is a special piece of work. And they`re a special band. Absolute genius. 'If I Die' is an incredible song, too. 'If yoU C Jordan' is a cool song and 'Bad Days' was the one that first got me into Something Corporate. Drive-Thru records is a great label. Check out Rx Bandits` 'All the Time'. Back to this song, I think the lyrics say all they need to and the referencing is brilliant. Especially the subtle touch of the Konfusion/Konstantine thing. First class.

submissions
moist – Break Her Down (Morphine) Lyrics 19 years ago
Morphine (the acoustic version of break her down) is one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.

submissions
moist – Push Lyrics 19 years ago
One of the greatest songs ever made by one of the best bands ever formed. The acoustic version is beautiful and the regular version is forceful. The lyrics speak for themselves.

submissions
Planes Mistaken for Stars – The Part You Left Out Lyrics 19 years ago
Love this song - so forceful - amazing.

Britney Spears – Before The Goodbye Lyrics 19 years ago
BT? I love that guy! So versatile it would seem! I saw the start of the comment and was shocked to see it was a Britney Spears song.

submissions
Grade – The Ineffenciency Of Emotion Lyrics 19 years ago
All Grade songs have the feel of an epic to them: like mini operas, ignoring the standard form of contemporary music. The way the interchange between screaming and singing is used is brilliant - similar to Thursday. Every section of this song brings something new to it - a great work. I think a lot of it is about the struggle to be vocal about how you feel and what you want while others say them easily but might not even mean it. Not often do I find songs that I can relate to but this one I can in a real way. The title appealed to me, the lyrics say something without being too obvious or too deep and the way the song progresses is just amazing. I think they view emotions in the same way I do.

submissions
Grade – TearJerk Lyrics 19 years ago
There are a bunch of things I love about this band and all of them are encapsulated in this song - the title, the lyrics, the singing, the screaming, the intro, the syncopation ... It`s not actually my favourite Grade song but it`s one you can really get into and feel it. If you like the screaming, try 'The Part You Left Out' by Planes Mistaken for Stars. The meaning? I think it speaks for itself.

submissions
AFI – Midnight Sun Lyrics 19 years ago
All the lyrics (including the Baudelaire poem) are on the AFI website. The Days of the Pheonix bassline is pretty easy and sounds great. Midnight Sun is one of the best bonus tracks ever and one of the band`s favourite songs to play live.

submissions
AFI – Malleus Maleficarum Lyrics 19 years ago
I think this song is based upon the book and the witch trials because many thousands of Wiccans were killed by the Catholics. Well done for noticing that, Ruby but it is naive to say 'ie Salem' as that was just the end of years and years of it. Of course there is more to the song than historical reference but that`s the base. Magz - proud member of the Despair Faction

submissions
AFI – At A Glance Lyrics 19 years ago
Just love this song. Especially the chorus and the breakdown. This, God Called in Sick Today and Midnight Sun make for the perfect ending to Black Sails.

submissions
AFI – The Days Of The Phoenix Lyrics 19 years ago
Days of the Pheonix is mainly about their days playing at the Pheonix, as division2ronin mentioned. It probably does have more to it though. Great song. A mate of mine once said it has an air of triumph about it and I can feel it too. Quite quite special.

submissions
AFI – God Called In Sick Today Lyrics 19 years ago
Although it seems to make sense, I doubt this song has any real relation to God or Jesus as Davey Havok is a Wiccan. See Malleus Mallificarum for his view of Catholics and I think a lot of this song is in the same vane - about how the evil of persecution of his people in the past has been forgotten and largely ignored. This was the first AFI song I heard and is one of my favourites along w/ Days of the Pheonix, Midnight Sun, At a Glance, Morningstar and This Secret Ninja.
