Green Day – 21 Guns Lyrics 1 year ago
The song is simply about a relationship that has reached an impasse. In order to get past this damaging argumentative war of hurt and stubborn pride between two people, in order to save this relationship you must both choose to compromise, walk toward each other and lay down your arms. Give up the fight if the relationship is worth anything to you, find a better way, communicate, choose love over stupid pride in arguments and disagreements Hope that explains it! Peace

David Bowie – Panic in Detroit Lyrics 1 year ago
Bowie did not see the riots. Bowie wrote the song based on the descriptions of Iggy Pop who was in Detroit in the summer of 67.
I saw some of the riots from the riverfront of Windsor Ontario.

Iron Maiden – The Book of Souls Lyrics 1 year ago
"The Book of Souls" is a musical sequel to Powerslave.

Both draw heavily from Egyptian mythology laid out in the Book of the Dead.

Fittingly, there were several versions of the Egyptian Book of the Dead representing the fall of the Egyptian Kingdoms when the Book was rewritten for the new Egyptian Kingdom

Simon and Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence Lyrics 1 year ago
I think God visited Paul Simon that evening on the bathroom floor where he and his guitar wrote this hauntingly beautiful song.

When I listen to the lyrics I feel like the "Sound of Silence" refers to our darkest thoughts, the ones we keep to ourselves, thoughts we do not dare to share our imnnermost thoughts or even our conscience.

These thoughs being troubled and causing restlessness are confonted in dreams where one sees and hears the voice of God that no one is otherwise listening too, even though it is directly in our faces. Instead we worship false Gods, speak and hear meaningless words, remain silent instead of speaking up and acting out for what we feel deep insise and as we do that the chaos in our heads grows as we continue to ignore the warnings. In a nutshell that is what this song means to me.
Paul Simon wrote this song but when the band Disturbed sings their absoutely brilliant version of it I can actually feel God's anger and this brought the message home to me.

Lorde – Perfect Places Lyrics 1 year ago
@[fra281139:23071] my eyes kinda get wet with this interpretation. i only sign up on these page to say this. i read it and i felt exactly the same about these lyrics.

Lorde – Green Light Lyrics 1 year ago
Es una clara canción sobre post-ruptura amorosa, al parecer su novio la engañó con otra y ella no solo se enteró de esto sino de cosas que le dijo a esa chica para seducirla ("I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth
She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar")

Ella se muestra dolida, y con un leve resentimiento, y recurre a la metafora de si "esos dientes blancos", como preguntandole si no se arrepiente o si no le carcome la conciencia haberla engañado, a la vez que le cuestiona el hecho de que le haya dicho que la iba a amar por siempre cuando finalmente no fué así.
("Those great whites, they have big teeth
Oh, they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you're not in love no more")

Apartir de ahi la canción cambia, entra el piano en un tono mas bailable y empieza el quiebre: ella empieza a experimentar sensaciones nuevas, que quizás cuando estaba en pareja, no habia experimentado ("But I hear sounds in my mind, Brand new sounds in my mind"), y se siente atraída por ellas, pero a la vez recuerda a su ex-novio, simplemente porque no puede evitarlo ("But honey I'll be seein' you, ever, I go, But honey I'll be seein' you down every road"). Y luego grita por la "luz verde" que es una clara referencia a la idea de ser libre, de poder seguir su camino sin él de una vez por todas. ("I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it").

Es una canción hermosa y perfecta sobre una ruptura amorosa y de alguien que, a pesar de estar dolida y aun seguida enamorada de esa persona que la traicionó, entiende que tiene que seguir adelante.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Higgs Boson Blues Lyrics 1 year ago
@[Ajnochka:23063] The CERN large hadron collider (where the Higgs Boson particle was first found) is just outside Geneva, just across the border into France. I agree with your interpretation, and believe the reason Geneva was mentioned is due to the collider.

Evanescence – My Heart Is Broken Lyrics 1 year ago
I love this song very much, and also other songs of this band. This song is very complex about its meaning. And I suppose my opinion on the song can change by time. But nowadays I think that the song is about a person who suddenly came to think about spiritual things ''over the fear ....'', and quit his former way of life, but she became confused in all that 'spirituality', because the real connection to this matter requires great interest and knowledge of philosophy, psychology, and Vedic philosophy, and deep meditation and readiness to meet suffering, I suppose. The way is hard and even dangerous. But that's just my opinion. Any truth on the Earth is relative!

Coldplay – Up & Up Lyrics 1 year ago
@[BonnieT:23022] @[BonnieT:23022] Hello! My name is Hyunsu and I'm a student from South Korea. Thank you so much for the amazingly clear interpretation...It was so helpful as I had a lot of questions regarding this song and was so curious about the lyrics. I just wanted to add a reply about the "angels in the marble waiting to be freed" part and share my ideas :)

I think this part refers to the fact that every object has potential and is like a 'diamond in the rough,' having exceptional qualities but simply lacking the final touch of refinement. Just like how 'trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon' was inspired by a Yiddish proverb (You can't empty out the ocean with a spoon), this verse seems to have been inspired by a quote by Michelangelo: "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” So put in simple words, this line is emphasizing that there is hope lying ahead - you just need to "free the angels" and finish the final touches. By doing this, you will be able to let your greatness be shown to the world and turn your hidden potential into reality.

This song was so inspiring and the uplifting message certainly moved me. Thank you again for your excellent explanation of the song!

Suzanne Vega – The Queen And The Soldier Lyrics 1 year ago
@!@#$%^&*() hmmmmm. I am quite taken back by your blanketed statement where you tell everyone else that they are wrong, insinuating that your answer is right. I do see the song in the terms of a story, not really a love story though.

How about the way that the lyrics are put to music? The choice of sound speaks volumes about the meaning of the entire piece you know. Her vocals don't vary much at all. The "end" of the song is obviously not actually the end, it has almost a "to be continued" or "this story has more to say, if you listen." You see, those who happen to call themselves musical artists are experts at blending the melody they play with the lyrics to match. Even the music itself is a combination of being upbeat as well as serious and intense. Combine all of the above the lyrics with the sounds of the instrumentals and you will be able to get to understand what the song is intended to convey. Don't only rely on one of the 3 aspects, combine them as a story which is both light hearted and monotonous. Interesting, with the potential to be a love song, yet, death and the feeling of unfinished business...

Open up, this isn't only psychology, it's so much more and the artist's hard work on the multiple layers seem to be lost upon those who don't combine them with the music. This isn't simply poetry, it's poetry mixed in with the appropriate sounds the artist needed to create a beautiful story... Renée

Suzanne Vega – The Queen And The Soldier Lyrics 1 year ago
@[Lady_Paladin:23021] Although my response is not very timely, I was recently re-introduced to this song. In brief, our daughter, Gwendolyn Aleigh, was born September 17, 1992. She was killed by her daycare provider a year and a month later. I was looking at her baby book and, under the section labelled "Favorite Lullaby" I wrote down this song. For many years, I'd forgotten how much our daughter loved going to sleep after I told her a story through music.

I'd not even sung this song since Gwen's death, 24 years ago. Yet, the moment I heard it again, I remembered every word.

I agree with you that it's a story.

I have to admit that it seems a bit off base and overanalyzed when I notice that some folks seem to place the lyrics under a microscope as if there is some kind of complex code for the listener to analyze and discover.

As a musician myself, I realize that many pieces of music are more than what we hear, it's the nature of the beast. However, it's fairly presumptuous to be so bold as to TELL us the true meaning of the lyrics (instead of stating that the interpretation is what you think of while listening to it).

Whenever I hear a song of any kind, I am oftentimes reminded of the lyrics at the end of the piece, "Breathe (2 a.m.)" since it's true for every piece of music, as well as dialog sections which capture our attention while watching a favorite movie or play:

"2 a.m. and I'm still awake writing a song, if I get it all down I'll be burdened no longer inside of me threatening the life it belongs to. But I feel like I'm naked in front of a crowd 'cause these words are my diary screaming out loud and I know that you'll use them however you want to."

She's quite clear about what it's like to be a musical artist. Until the song lyrics are transferred in written form from whatever ideas the artist has, they feel burdened and are eager to get it out so that they can finally feel like they have given the exact piece of music to the tortured soul who needs it. Even though the lyrics will be used in whichever way the listener is inclined to use them...


As a story, the song speaks volumes. Are they attracted to each other or not? I'm not certain. Maybe she had "seen his face someplace before" because he caught her eye? Who knows? I often think about how young some of the Kings and Queens of ancient times must have felt overwhelmed by having the power of a leader before having the chance to experience what it's like to just be a child. The only adults they have to rely upon are advisors who have their own agendas and desires to obtain some of the power.

Whatever the song is about, it's quite haunting and beautiful as well...IMO... Renée

Evanescence – Bring Me To Life Lyrics 16 years ago
jesus christ , No, its not. I feel i have no soul. That doesnt make me religous, just because they mention the word soul and it being lead back home doesnt mean shit. to the writer it could have been that they were lost and someone brought them happyness. Just because they mention the word soul does not make it religous or a christian song. Why do you people always have to stain music by branding it having to do with there religon?

Stone Sour – Orchids Lyrics 16 years ago
Its about being used by someone. Most of these stone sour songs are around that. Anyways, 'God i never learn', Thats him saying that inspite of knowing hes being used, he never realizes that, he just never learns.

Stone Sour – Cold Reader Lyrics 16 years ago
Some people go thru alot of shit on a regular day, stuff that none of us would ever know about, so slip you should shut up.

This song is really good. This person is using them, but they dont know how to get rid of it, and there having conflits about it. I think the person using tho, doesnt know it eather. "I..can only hurt your case, It's written on your face, you always come to me.."

Blink-182 – Romeo and Rebecca Lyrics 16 years ago
the wrong boy is right (

The lyrics say that exactly, its what i figured it had to be about. She was to young and he probably got frustrated about it.

"Your words are kind
The kind that repeatedly say no
But that's alright
I'm older than you so I've got time "

This one line, it think it means that what she said would work if they would sleep together. but i dont know.

"You think your words will work
They only work when you lay down and close your eyes "

Good song, i love it, this band is pretty cool. The meaning is pretty simple.

A Perfect Circle – 3 Libras Lyrics 16 years ago
This song means alot to me because it reminds me fomsone,
and how he overlooked me. This song is basiclly about being overlookeed, as it says on the a perfect circle site.

"Threw you the obious etc."
I told him what was obvious, how i liked him and he just kept it in his head, just some memmory like everything else.

Diffictult not feel alittle bit dissapointed etc."
He overlooked me, i felt overlooked, disappointed and passed over. I could see who he was. but he couldnt see me.

"but i threw you the obvious etc"
I told him how i felt, even tho he was hurt inisde.
i wanted to see if theres morebehind the eys of a fallon angel..the eyes of a tragedy

"here i am expecting just alittle bit etc"
I expeced him to likem e just as much back because i could see thru his pain.

"cause i threw you the obvious"
i was there. i was his reminder. i wanted to see waht he thought what "occurs" behind the eyes of a tragedy

"oh well..appantly nothing"
..apparently nothing

"you dont see me at all"
aparntly he just never saw me

he had been thru alot of tradgedy in his life already.
I was just overlooked.

Its a beautiful song, ive cried to it before

From Autumn to Ashes – Short Stories With Tragic Endings Lyrics 16 years ago
Actually the lyrics to this song really are beautiful, It is not overrated.

This song reminds me of someone. He didnt want to tell me the truth
"Here you stand seething with guilt, silence only justifys this act of cowardness"
He though we wouldnt be friends anymore/
"the look stapeled on your face crys for forgiveness"

And then of course. you have that one lyric part witch just rips me up

"The ony reason you are here now, is as a reminder of what I'll never have"
