Ned's Atomic Dustbin – Kill Your Television Lyrics 10 years ago
These lyrics are incomplete. They should be:

She said, she said
"You don't know shit,
Because you've never been there"

She turned upon him,
Took him by the hair
Spun him round about,
Laughing as he fell about,
Sat down for a drink
In her father's favourite chair

Kill your television

I said, "I know I don't know shit,
Because I've never been there"
You turn upon me
Took me by the hair
Spun me 'round about, pushing me out
Laughing as I fell about
Sat down for a drink
In your father's favorite chair

She said
Soap for sore eyes
I need an intermission
If looks could kill
I'd kill your television

She said
Soap for sore eyes
I need an intermission
If looks could kill
I'd kill your television

Kill your television

Soap for sore eyes

Public Image Ltd – Warrior Lyrics 10 years ago
At a live show I saw, during this song, in between verses, Lydon hocked a huge logie about 10 - 15 feet above his head and caught it in his mouth, then went right on singing. Despite that they do put on a great live show. PIL rocks!

The Ocean Blue – Between Something and Nothing Lyrics 10 years ago
Lyrics should be something like this:

Words that form a sentence
Words that form a phrase
In a poem or a letter
Could not convey the meaning
Of what this man has done
In a painting
On canvas
As the colors fading
They dictate my mood
Can you see me
Are you near me
I find myself on canvas
I find myself on stage
Can you see me
Are you near me
And I long to know you're real
And I long for you to be part of me
I long to know you're real
And I long for you to be a part of me
In the fading twilight
I sit and stare at her
In all her beauty
Her beauty
You know I have to wonder
Why all great men must die
And leave their treasure
They leave their treasure

GREAT song!

Waitin' for the one day
Yeah ! Yeah ! Wait for ! Wait for...

Waitin' for the one day
Are we waitin' for the one day ?

Waitin' in bootcamps
In the country somewhere !
Waitin' in front of t.v.'s in living rooms
Somewhere around here !
Waitin' in heaven
Huh ! Huh ! Huh ! Somewhere up there
Waitin' in hell
Somewhere down there...

Waitin' for the one day
Waitin' for the one day
Yeah ! Yeah ! Wait for ! Wait for...

The time has come for...

Femalization

The time is gone for...

The Call – The Walls Came Down Lyrics 10 years ago
Michael Been said this about "The Walls Came Down":

"There was a great deal happening politically - Grenada, Lebanon, or the government saying the Russians are evil and the Russian government probably saying the same about us. That kind of thinking inspired me to write the last lines of 'Walls Came Down'."

It seems to me that Been is also interjecting the imagery of the Isrealites led by Joshua during their siege of Jericho. On the seventh day of the siege the priests blew their trumpets made of ram horns and the people shouted and Jericho's wall fell allowing Isreal to destroy the city.

Bryan Ferry – Kiss and Tell Lyrics 10 years ago
Ferry was dating Jerry Hall in the 70's. She left him for Mick Jagger. Though he doesn't talk much about it, it's rumored that this song is his response to a tell-all book Hall wrote about their relationship. Catchy song.

Siouxsie and the Banshees – Swimming Horses Lyrics 10 years ago
According to Siouxsie:

"This is based on a programme I saw about a female version of Amnesty, called ‘Les Sentinelles’. They rescue women who are trapped in certain religious climates in the Middle East, religions that view any kind of pre-marital sexual aspersion as punishable by death - either by the hand of the eldest brother in the family, or by public stoning. And there was this instance of a woman whose daughter had developed a tumour, and, of course, gossip abounded that she was pregnant. The doctor who removed the tumour allowed her to take it back to the village to prove that, no, it wasn’t a baby - but they wouldn’t believe her. The woman knew her daughter would have to be stoned to death so she poisoned her, out of kindness, to save her from a worse fate. Now this organisation has all these escape routes for women like her, mainly through the elder brother who pretends to have killed them. But once they’ve been saved, they can never go back. So the song starts, Kinder than with poison... I also used the imagery of, He gives birth to swimming horses, from the fact that male sea horses give birth to the children, so they’re the only species that have a maternal feel for the young. It was, I suppose, an abstract way of linking it all together without being sensationalist. I remember just being really moved by that programme, and wanting to get the sorrow out of me."

Fishbone – Sunless Saturday Lyrics 12 years ago
C'mon! Doesn't anyone remember this song? It ROCKS! I think the key to the meaning of this song is in the second to last verse. Though he's singing about depressing images around him, it's all a metaphor for his feeling of being unworthy to receive the sun's light in his inner soul. whatever...it's a very cool song.
