Nightwish – Turn Loose The Mermaids Lyrics 10 years ago
Full lyrics:

A kite above a graveyard grey
At the end of the line far far away
A child holding on to the magic of birth and awe

Oh, how beautiful it used to be
Just you and me far beyond the sea
The waters, scarce in motion
Quivering still

At the end of the river the sundown beams
All the relics of a life long lived
Here, weary traveller rest your wand
Sleep the journey from your eyes

Good journey, love, time to go
I checked your teeth and warmed your toes
In the horizon I see them coming for you

The mermaid grace, the forever call
Beauty in spyglass on an old man's porch
The mermaids you turned loose brought back your tears

Paula Cole – Our Revenge Lyrics 13 years ago
Full lyrics:

Walking the mountain is easy for the medicine
Man who follows makes sure the Indian
Never returns.

His revenge, his revenge
His revenge, his revenge

Fighting the front line is honor for the pharaoh in
Egypt erases the queen, the truth, the history
of her

Her revenge, her revenge
Her revenge, her revenge

Reading the pages of history it's not black and
White is the man with the pen who's writing the story
Of life.

Our revenge, our revenge rising
Our revenge, our revenge rising
Our revenge, our revenge rising
Our revenge, our revenge rising, rising, rising, rising

Nightwish – Bye Bye Beautiful Lyrics 14 years ago
I haven't been able to find the official lyrics anywhere, so I can't say whether or not this is right, but I'm wondering if the 4th verse in the chorus is actually "Did you ever let in what the words said?"

Would make more sense with the theme that it's about Tarja.

Blutengel – Warriors Of Destiny Lyrics 15 years ago
The spoken intro to the song:

"Temptation, is an illusion. But the time for trivelty is passed. In this game we show ourselves as we really are.
And what's that?
The beauty of suffering...
You are no more different than that beast that's good for bones you throw to it!
And you are, princess? What are you!?"
"This is a holocaust waiting to wake itself"
"You look like death, Princess"

Xandria – My Scarlet Name Lyrics 16 years ago
These are actually the lyrics to "Snow White."

Madonna – Papa Don't Preach Lyrics 16 years ago
"Baby" is also a slang term for endearment, often used for a significant other... unless someone were listening *very* closely to the lyrics (and honestly, most people listening on the radio and such aren't), I could easily see how the true meaning of the song could be confuse.

VNV Nation – Forever Lyrics 16 years ago
"Forever" is actually by Bruderschaft, a superband featuring Ronan as vocalist.

Terminal Choice – The Saviour Lyrics 16 years ago
Should be "human filth" in the second to last stanza...

Britney Spears – My Prerogative (Bobby Brown cover) Lyrics 17 years ago
Given all the controversity surrounding Britney ... I agree with the people who said she took the song and made it her own.

I hadn't heard that she fired her manager. Good for her. It'll be interesting to see where she goes from here.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – The Dead Flag Blues Lyrics 17 years ago
I probably should not be listening to this song right now, given the outcome of the election ... *sigh*

Apoptygma Berzerk – Deep Red Lyrics 17 years ago
I'm probably the only person who sees the song this way, but I've always interpreted it almost sexually. Rough, perhaps even nonconsensually, but sexual all the same. Wanting to be the blade against the other person, the knife cutting through skin ...

Granted, I'm a masochist with a blade fetish, so of course I'd interpret the song that way ... :P

HIM – Circle of Fear Lyrics 17 years ago
I think the song is talking about, if you have problems that taint your daily life, memories or whatnot that you haven't recovered from, if you've let yourself become embittered ... you can't expect to help other people with them, because it affects you to every degree. Rather, first you have to turn within and heal yourself, even though that's hard.

Madonna – American Pie (Don McLean cover) Lyrics 17 years ago
I have to agree with everyone who said that this cover sucks. It's not so much the change in music, but the fact that she excised about half the song. Had she not done so, I would have enjoyed the cover much more than I did. As it stands, however, I much prefer the original.

That said, I do respect Madonna's talent as an artist and like her work. I simply feel she did not do this song justice.
