The Faceless – Autotheist Movement III: Deconsecrate Lyrics 1 month ago
There does not logically have to be a creator. That just creates a chicken-or-egg scenario. Who created the creator? If the creator can have existed forever, then why can't the universe itself? Maybe there have always been an infinite procession of bang/crunch cycles.

But even if I grant that there was a creator, that is a far cry from lending credence to all the other specifics of Christi[n]anity. All those beliefs really are made up from nothing. In other words, even if there is a creator, who's to say it's YOUR specific creator?

At the end of the day, not one of us knows where everything came from, and it's senseless to pretend we do. I embrace the fact that I have no idea, and I refuse to be cowed by religions like yours.

Mudvayne – Cradle Lyrics 1 month ago
I'm not arrogant enough to proclaim what this song means, but I will say what it means to me. And to me, it speaks to my (non-) relationship with my father, and the unending mental torment I've endured as a result.

It speaks of how I looked up to him when I was young and naïve, even though he was never there for me. It mentions how he walked away from me when my parents divorced, and how I was "blind" as a child, and then as a young man, struggling without a single male role model.

It mentions the fact that I've never known what it's like to feel loved, since my mother ignored me as well. It plaintively and yet unexpectantly calls to the sky for help.

It speaks to defiance when it says "I never needed you" while adding the conflicting sentiment that "I can't see going on", because sometimes, shit's just so hard that the reason for doing so is impossible to find.

This is one of those songs I love because I identify with it so much, but find hard to listen to because I identify with it just too much. The rage and torment inside me is beyond description.

Faster Pussycat – House Of Pain Lyrics 2 months ago
I can't believe I haven't commented on this song yet. This is one of a very few songs that are intensely personal to me, but I can rarely listen to it, because it's just too difficult for me.

I grew up with a father who ignored me. He had time for hobbies, girlfriends, and everything else but his son. He always had better places to go after work than home. So yeah, I can relate to the message in this song.

In the mid-1990s, when I was an adult, and after I'd given up on him completely, I gave this song to him by putting it on a cassette tape and leaving the tape in his mailbox. He spoke to my mother some time later and claimed that the tape had nothing on it. Great guy.

Live – Lightning Crashes Lyrics 2 years ago
In my religion, death is wonderful, because it marks the time when we finally no longer have to deal with stupid fucking religious idiots telling us what is right, what is wrong, how to live, what we should care about, who we should love, what things mean, and everything in between. Go fuck yourself.

Audioslave – Shadow On The Sun Lyrics 2 years ago
@[truehearttrue:26840] - Not all other people see it because it doesn't make much sense. I construe this line:

"Once upon a time I was of the mind to lay your burden down"

To be suggesting suicide. Those of us who know what that feels like understand what it means to be seriously depressed, to feel dead inside, and to feel like a burden to one's spouse, family, friends, etc. Suicide is therefore about "laying their burden down".

The song is called "Shadow On The Sun", not "Gee I Sure Miss You". The vast majority of the lines say nothing to suggest it's about a relationship. Instead, they speak to being dead and tormented inside.

And Cornell is well known to have had a long history of depression and suicidal thoughts.

And Cornell did, in fact, end up committing suicide in 2017.

I'm not Monday morning quarterbacking here; I said the same thing in 2012, because this is how I've always interpreted the song.

@[despondent:26824] - I need to correct myself--yes, over six years later--to point out that it's "lived inside my skin", not "lives inside my skin". It's very clearly "lived", not "lives", and I've listened to the demo and release versions. Not to mention that "lived" makes more contextual sense. I can't remember if I got "lives" from the erroneous lyrics that were posted, but I've submitted a correction.

First Blood – Next Time I See You You're Dead [*][Demo Version] Lyrics 3 years ago
This song is about the love that the singer feels coming from God, our Lord and Saviour.

>I cannot forgive, what I cannot forget
>That day you took that shovel to my chest

Here, he is expressing how difficult it is to forgive the harm that others have done to us, but beginning to accept the Lord into his heart. The shovel represents the Lord's unending love for us all.

>You represent a time and place that I wish to forget, dead.
>Next time I see you, you're dead.

He is expressing the pain of past events, and happiness that the One True God has saved his soul. He wants to forget and leave behind his sinful atheistic days.

>Don't even bother to waste your time to make amends.
>You don't deserve a place in my life ever again.

Here, he is telling his former atheistic self that he has moved on. Satan no longer has a hold on him, and never will again. The Lamb of God has healed him. Rejoice!

Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime Lyrics 3 years ago
@[p3nguinpi3:24251] - What bullshit. Questioning who you are? What does that even mean?

Basically what you're saying is that unless I believe stupid shit with no evidence such as the ridiculous notion that some magical being has a "plan" for me or that "my consciousness, man, is like 'out there', you know, dude?" then I'm not up to your lofty standards. This psychobabble is tiring.

I do think about how to be a decent human being, but I'm done pretending that I'll find an answer to some supreme purpose for myself. People have been trying for millennia and still, the most substantial answers we have are absolutely empty and baseless.

This is where lame-minded people who get butthurt about their stupid ideas being shit on respond to me in anger. -->

@[Rion:24250] - Yeah, I was unconscious when I got married and when I bought my house. I don't dispute your interpretation, because this is "art" and therefore means absolutely nothing, but it's a load of shit.

It's just a smug artist telling everyone how acutely wonderful and "awake" and powerful he is, and everyone else is a poor, useless, unthinking zombie. And I say fuck that.

When I look back, time seems to have raced by, and I don't recall many things very deeply. But I do recall knowing that time is precious and that I should be aware and not be a zombie as I go through life.

I also recall that no douchebag artist knows a thing about me.

My wife lost her job awhile back, but refuses to look for new work, and I very much feel the WEIGHT of the added responsibility. I do absolutely feel taken for granted, and it's actually worse than that, but this is not a space for my biography. Essentially, I think you are spot-on.

Rage Against the Machine – Killing In The Name Lyrics 4 years ago
@[flamebroiledchicken:17822] No offense, but you're wrong. I just listened to a high-quality copy of the song with my Sennheiser HD 600 headphones, at a volume that was disturbingly loud. I also slowed it down to 0.5 and 0.6 speed at times.

He says "burn crosses," not "bore crosses." It's pretty easy to distinguish the "uh" sound from the "oh" sound (i.e. "burn" vs. "bore").

I wish you were right, because I could relate to the song more that way. But you're not.

Also, with your mistaken interpretation, the phrase "chosen whites" makes no sense. Since he says "burn crosses," that phrase makes total sense.

Black Sabbath – Paranoid Lyrics 4 years ago
The meaning is pretty clear. It's about a joyless bastard like myself. I've identified with this song for decades. I don't need any of you stupid assholes explaining it to me.

In at least some live performances, Ozzy clearly DOES say "end your life" in the last verse, and not "enjoy life." I point this out because I remember reading about Ozzy having to testify at some bullshit lawsuit that was leveled against him for having written this song, based on the fact that some kid committed suicide, and the idiotic parents wanted to at least get some cash out of their son's death. (Yeah, fuck taking responsibility for your offspring. It's so much easier to blame a rock star. Because that makes so much sense.) Ozzy testified that he says "enjoy life," and on the album version, that may be the case. It's hard to tell.

He also waffles between saying "my state" and "my fate" in the same verse, but that's a bit less interesting.

Oh and if you have not heard it yet for some reason, listen to the Randy Rhoads / Tribute version of this song. Randy demolishes the album version and improves on it about a trillion-fold.

Fuck you all.
