The Smiths – Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want Lyrics 13 years ago
I agree with hlsguy. This song, though ostensibly sad, is deliberately morose. It captures the sometimes foolish sentimentality of unrequited love. The subject is exaggerating; there is obviously no way that they've been deprived of their desires 100% of the time. Though disguised as a sort of melancholy plea, it is clear that the end-result of their lovelorn pursuits will really fix nothing.

I mean, consider how silly it is to say "Please, please, please let me get what I want. Lord knows it'll be the first time." This always struck me as representing how we wallow when we don't get what we seek. I'd say this is a pretty fair representation of youthful optimism towards relationships.

Regina Spektor – Man of a Thousand Faces Lyrics 13 years ago
also, may I add that I am usually quite cautious about making religious parallels to artists' songs. I am certainly not one to read religiosity into most aspects of life, but considering that the entire album does broach the subject quite a bit.

Regina Spektor – Man of a Thousand Faces Lyrics 13 years ago
I'd have to venture that, like with "Far" as a whole, Regina is playing with the idea of religion. The man of a thousand faces is the idea of this ultimate being, who has been perceived in different (yet basically similar) ways around the world since the beginning of time. The ultimate being never appears in the same way to any one person, as different cultures and individuals observe and relate to this being differently.

Just a beautiful play on religion, and the hope that it can (in the right circumstances) bring to people. It's such a uniting and comforting connection she draws here... we may not all believe in the same thing...and we may not all "worship" in the same way, but at the end of the day, most of us are just trying to get by and believe in *something.*

Two Gallants – The Hand That Held Me Down Lyrics 13 years ago
I think that, in the simplest of terms, it's about thinking someone's a lot better for you than you are. To me, it's about the moment you realize when someone, whether a friend or a lover, has actually been unhealthy for you; i.e. "the hand that held me down." The metaphor of "did you kiss the hand that held me down?" signifies that the person he speaks of had a greater hand in his emotional downfall/the disintegration of the relationship than he had realized at the time.

Modest Mouse – Teeth Like God's Shoeshine Lyrics 13 years ago
I like that you brought that up, because it is so true in the world today. It reminds me of the lyric from Death Cab's "Little Fury Bugs" that goes, "You discover that casual friends kept notes in their pockets to remember your name." I feel like they both express so succintly this idea of friendships that don't really mean anything, and not only that, this concept of: 'Oh you think someone knows you so well,' but at the end of the day, they don't know you at all.

Modest Mouse – Teeth Like God's Shoeshine Lyrics 13 years ago
Every time I think I could pick a favorite MM song, they shock the hell out of me. This song is just...brilliant. Rough and somber and beautiful.

I think that tackledspoon put it best--the song is about life. It reminds me (as many Modest Mouse songs do, now that I mention it) of the culture of Fahrenheit 451, which was a reflection on a culture that consumes and moves forward at a speed that leaves little time for cultivation of the important things in life. I think, out of every telling symbol in the song, this is the clearest:

"Oh, if you could compact your conscience. Oh, and you might."
Here, he's sort of saying, 'Well, you know, you would compartmentalize your conscience if you could, if it would make things run smoother. You would abbreviate religion and love until it was bite-size.' (Think the John Lennon//Jesus comment, he wasn't saying "We're better than God", he was saying "You worship a band more than you worship a figure you believe to be your savior. Don't you find that appalling?") We live in a culture that never slows down, in a world where to waste five minutes of someone's time with an idea of something whole is worse than shooting them dead.

"Oh, if you could bottle and sell it you might've done. Oh, and you might."
This is more of that same thing, that 'You'd sell your soul if you could.'

"Oh, if you could compact your conscience and sell it--save it for another time. You know you might have to use it."
I just love this line. He's saying, 'Don't be so quick to give up on what makes you human. You're going to need that when this whole gilded cage world of ours falls apart,' and I just love how he portrays that.

I find this to be immensely important to understanding one of the many meanings of the song: "You should be ashamed to be so proud of what you've done."
He's saying, 'Why are you proud of these things you've done in your life? The way you've used people because you're selfish, or greedy, or just trying to fit into a world that's moving on without you, moving towards its own inevitable destruction."

I just love Brock's socio-political commentary. It has always been so astoundingly astute.

Modest Mouse – Cowboy Dan Lyrics 13 years ago
I think WhiteTide got it completely right:

"Cowboy Dan is the personification of our striking-out against, but failing to change, the life that oppresses us everyday."

Cowboy Dan is the fuck-up living inside all of us, the one we try to ignore. We pretend that he doesn't exist, that he isn't linked so closely to us, but Cowboy Dan is a part of all of us because he is a part of our humanity--the part that we're ashamed of, the very hopelessness that both drives and (eventually) destroys us.

submissions
Modest Mouse – Cowboy Dan Lyrics 13 years ago
You know, your comment of "before the "Float On" crowd started paying them attention" is rather silly. The comment embodies the jaded "been there since the early days" fan. Does the fact that I found them through "Float On" diminish my love or appreciation for them as arists? I think not. Perhaps you should reconsider before saying things like that in such a forum.

submissions
Moby – Slipping Away Lyrics 13 years ago
I think the main point of the song is the oft-repeated line: "Hold on to people, they're slipping away." He's saying that, through everything, what we most need in the world is to keep connecting to others. It can be hard, in a world so full of hate--because you have to live defensively, almost. He's saying that we have to hold onto what humanity is left in the world, hold on to others. He's talking about the fractured way we live our lives, the disconnected pieces of the world working towards different goals every day.

Most of all, this song is about unity, I think.

Tegan and Sara – Like O, Like H Lyrics 13 years ago
I've heard quite a few theories, but I would be inclined to believe that boatznhoez has it pretty spot-on.

"SOS to my mother" is a cry for help. She wants her mother to find out that she's doing this to herself. She wants someone to stop her. Seems like a pretty good representation of the struggles one faces throughout adolescence.

submissions
Tegan and Sara – Like O, Like H Lyrics 13 years ago
I think what she means by "take the hinges off the door" is that she wants her mother to find out what's going on--if you remove the hinges from a door, you either remove the door, (or if we're talking physics-defying doors :P) any sound that said door would make upon entering a room. I think that's what she's trying to say.

The Decemberists – Won't Want for Love (Margaret in the Taiga) Lyrics 13 years ago
Folks, we have a new favorite.

It seems to be two lovers trying to reach each other. Margaret seems to be pregnant, which has been alluded to here.

It seems as if she is worried about the presence of the child, but she says, in the end, "Well, at least if he comes, I won't want for love," meaning, "Okay, well at least he will love me and take care of me." Getting that impression.

Marc Cohn – Strangers In The Car Lyrics 13 years ago
xUnbreakablex, I agree that this song is underrated. I'm a big Cohn fan, especially of his latest and his very early works. This song means so much to me, no matter what inspired it. I think it is such a beautiful song and I find that every time I hear it, it evokes such strong emotions in me.

I always thought (even though he made a comment about an abduction, which casts quite a different light on things) that this was about taking a chance on someone, taking a chance on that stranger who "might be the one they told you about." For me, it is about that person always standing in the background, who knows you so well, and all that it would take was taking that leap, trusting that the person will be there to catch you. I also think that his line at the end, "Baby, maybe that's all we really are," is a dooming of the relationship--he realizes that maybe this love that seemed to fated isn't going to happen; that maybe it is meant to be but people's fears hold them back, so they are left with just two hearts and souls on different paths.

Keane – Spiralling Lyrics 14 years ago
Well, I love the older Keane music, and I think this is amazing. Though I considered their music beautiful...I guess I was getting a little bored. I feel like they made a very brave move, just as Coldplay did with 'Viva La Vida.' It's their obligation, in my opinion, as artists to continue to grow together as musicians. That kind of growth includes brave steps such as this, and I think the song is edgy and fabulous.

That being said, I think these lyrics are pretty straightforward. Disillusionment with love.

The Dresden Dolls – Shores of California Lyrics 14 years ago
Trytaker, she's trying to make a point through the obvious exaggerations. She's always been a woman who writes "hey, wake the fuck up" lyrics. I don't know if you've heard "Sex Changes" but it's not exactly a "walk in the park" kind of song. She writes so extremely because she is making fun of the "culture" more so than the specific people. And no, I don't think she's trying to imply that all men are sex-starved rapists. I, for one, don't think that when I listen to the song. I think of the differences she's trying to convey through her metaphors.

Although bravo for your knowledge of the Greek stories.

And...this is a rather straightforward song, I think. Highlighting the differences (though not literal) between men and women and what they expect from relationships, as well as how they view sex.

submissions
David Bowie – Bring Me the Disco King Lyrics 14 years ago
Dead or alive
Bring me the Disco King,
bring me the Disco King.

I think that he's referring to his own career, using the Disco King as a metaphor for his own fame. There is obviously some disdain he feels towards the title of "Disco King" which probably represents the resentment he began to feel towards his fame.

Close me in the dark, let me disappear
Soon there'll be nothing left of me
Nothing left to release.

I think this last line is meant to have a double meaning; both that there will be nothing left of him by the time his glory fades (subtext: by the time people are done with him), and that there will be nothing left of him because of this for the "popular culture" to demand more.

Lovely, lovely song. Easy to relate to. A great song of regret and a soured sense of nostalgia. Really breaks down to someone looking back on their life; on all the things that, at the time, seemed to matter so much, and realizing that none of it will mean anything in the end.

Counting Crows – Sundays Lyrics 14 years ago
Ya know, I really liked this song when it first cued up, but then when it opened up to the "You think that you can do without me" it jumped up to amazing. I love how it just...expands and opens up into this completely different song.

Love the lyrics. Sounds like a search for love? And the constant quest to differentiate between love and lust? Who knows...the quest to believe in something, to try believing in another person even though you know they will most likely fail you?

"I don't believe in Sundays, and I don't believe and I don't believe in anything," I don't think any other singer could pull that off quite like Adam. He really convinces you of it...because he seems to believe what he sings, he really makes you *feel* what he's singing about. I think we can all relate to not believing in Sundays, to not believing in aything, least of all love.

Counting Crows – Cowboys Lyrics 14 years ago
This song rules.

I was thinking about this yesterday after I picked up the album. It sounds like a cultural thing, and that he doesn't believe he has the strength to stand up to injustice "This is a list of the things that I should have seen but I am not seeing...I am just turning away from what I shouldn't seen because I am not anything" I think Lincoln is a representation of old ways, justice, etc, etc. I think this is a definite sociopolitical statement, "And I believe she loves you
'Cause you never make her feel like anything" look at that as the social statement, and "Everyone's in bed tonight
But nobody can sleep
'Cause all the satellites are watching through our windows" being more the political statement.

I just think, overall, it's a real harsh look at our culture. I think this is his way of looking at everything and saying "Wtf, guys?" lol

My favorite part is "But it's as if she isn't talking, cause Mr. Lincoln's head is bleeding on the front row while she's speaking" and "Come on all you cowboys, all you blue eyed baby boys, come on all you dashing gentlemen of summer...(now this is my absolute favorite) I'll wait for you where Saturday's a memory, and Sunday comes to gather me into the arms of God who'll welcome me because I believe"

Counting Crows – Hanging Tree Lyrics 14 years ago
"I am a child of fire I am a lion I have desires" This took on a different meaning when I found out he's a Leo. According to my mother (the old hippie who knows all the astrology crap ;p) being a Leo would make him a fire sign. Apparently...

Maybe part of it's about the duality and apathy of the general population "they say good morning when they wish you would go home"

This is a great song, from a great album.

Counting Crows – Insignificant Lyrics 14 years ago
I love these lyrics. Really and truly.

"Can you see me in the glare of the lamppost, cause I am walking a tightrope into the moon...I am one in a million, yeah, I'm Icarus falling out of the sun..."

That part makes me think of him feeling like a ghost in a sense. The chorus makes me think that he doesn't want to alienate himself, but that his self-alienation kind of makes him who he is? I don't know

"Don't know how to see the same things different" seems like he's saying that he wants to change but doesn't know how, or doesn't know how to find the strength to change. It's much easier to continue in the same behavior, even if it really fucks things up.

Counting Crows – You Can't Count on Me Lyrics 14 years ago
Great song.

Sounds like what he's been saying for years, that he can't be counted on lol

submissions
Counting Crows – When I Dream of Michelangelo Lyrics 14 years ago
This song, to me, feels like a comparison between the old and the new. That's why I think he makes the deliberate reference to "Angels of the Silences" I think he's saying "This is where I was then, this is where I am now, and I still believe that 'God...seems so close, as he reaches out his hand, but we are never quite as close, as we are led to understand'".

This song should make me sad, I think, but it always manages to make me smile. I guess it's part of that "Sunday Mornings" half..the acceptance of where you are in your life and the realization that you've just got to keep moving forward.

Counting Crows – August and Everything After (Live 12/03 Version) Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is amazing. Before I had heard it, I read that it wasn't as well recieved by fans as the hype made it out to be; I mean that, the hype of "Oh, he's finally gonna release that song we've been wondering about for years" outweighed the actual performance, but this is one of my favs. I like that he changed all the you's to I's in this, it makes it more convincing. This is a beautiful, beautiful song, and a beautiful version. I've listened to it on repeat for hours, I just can't get enough. It's pure poetry, really. He just really sells it.

Sounds to me like...well like a real sad fucking song! lol

But in all seriousness, there's definitely a struggle going on here, he's wrangling with his emotions and the things that have happened in his life.

I don't think I can pick a favorite part of this...but "I no longer know how to pray" is up there.

And um, this? "Well I already got my disease
So take your fucking filthy hands off of me
I hope you don't expect me to be crucified
The best that they can do is to just hang me from the nearest tree"

I think that sums it up perfectly. Seems like he doesn't even think he deserves crucifixtion.

Barenaked Ladies – What A Good Boy Lyrics 14 years ago
You know...I think people tend to look at them as a completely joking band (because of the humor in their music, and their constant jokes and all that) but this song really puts them on another level, in my opinion. I think the power of this song lies in the fact that it is something everyone can identify with. From what I can gather, he's basically saying from the moment we're born, people are already planning our lives. We're put into a mold from the first breath we take, and we're expected to fit that mold.

"I wake up scared, I wake up strange
I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever going to change
I wake up scared, I wake up strange
And everything around me stays the same"

Who can't identify with that?

That's why this song is timeless.

Leonard Cohen – The Stranger Song Lyrics 14 years ago
I think this song is absolutely beautiful. The best version I've actually heard is the version on a '67 taping of "Once More With Felix" : http://youtube.com/watch?v=RLq7Aqd_H7g

Onto analysis...

"It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
who said they were through with dealing
Every time you gave them shelter
I know that kind of man
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender."

This is pretty clear, I think. Talking about a "dealer", what we could call a "player" I suppose...simply put; someone who is constantly moving from person to person to get what they want. So he's telling her that he knows all her previous lovers hurt her in such a way, and each time you believed their promises that they were done "dealing" they let you down. And he's saying that he knows that kind of person and recognizes how hard it is to love someone like that (possibly implying that he understands how hard it must be to love someone else after that happens to you)

Chorus 1:
"And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind
you find he did not leave you very much not even laughter
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild
he'll never need to deal another
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger."

'And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind' just seems to imply that this person, or ex-lover, took everything from this woman (even the "jokers") The singer refers to how little this woman has been left with because of these relationships. He's also saying that because she let him con her so well, he was able to stay in that relationship and use her for a long time "he'll never need to deal another"

Chorus 2:
"And then leaning on your window sill
he'll say one day you caused his will
to weaken with your love and warmth and shelter
And then taking from his wallet
an old schedule of trains, he'll say
I told you when I came I was a stranger
I told you when I came I was a stranger."

More empty promises from the "dealers", making her think that she has changed them for the better. I believe the fact that "I told you when I came I was a stranger" part is placed here and repeated at the end of the song is supposed to contrast the singer with the previous lovers. Letting her know that while some parts of the situation are similar, he is very different than her previous relationships.

"But now another stranger seems
to want you to ignore his dreams
as though they were the burden of some other
O you've seen that man before
his golden arm dispatching cards
but now it's rusted from the elbows to the finger
And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter
Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter."

This is saying that this new person (let's say the singer) is asking her to ignore his selfishness. He tells her that he used to be a player, that he knew that life well but now he's "rusted". He basically wants to trade his previous ways for a meaningful relationship with this woman.

"Ah you hate to see another tired man
lay down his hand
like he was giving up the holy game of poker
And while he talks his dreams to sleep
you notice there's a highway
that is curling up like smoke above his shoulder
It is curling just like smoke above his shoulder."

The beginning of this verse makes me think that she doesn't believe the singer's intentions.

"You tell him to come in sit down
but something makes you turn around
The door is open you can't close your shelter
You try the handle of the road
It opens do not be afraid
It's you my love, you who are the stranger
It's you my love, you who are the stranger."

"The door is open, you can't close your shelter" makes me think that he has fallen for her (and one would reasonably assume she for him) and she has become the untrusting one, the one unable to settle down.

"Well, I've been waiting, I was sure
we'd meet between the trains we're waiting for
I think it's time to board another
Please understand, I never had a secret chart
to get me to the heart of this
or any other matter
When he talks like this
you don't know what he's after
When he speaks like this,
you don't know what he's after."

He's thinking of leaving, telling her that this was not his original intention. He seems to understand on some level why/that she cannot trust him.

"Let's meet tomorrow if you choose
upon the shore, beneath the bridge
that they are building on some endless river
Then he leaves the platform
for the sleeping car that's warm
You realize, he's only advertising one more shelter
And it comes to you, he never was a stranger
And you say ok the bridge or someplace later."

He's basically telling her it's her choice whether to trust him enough to let him in or not. Insinuates that perhaps she realizes too late that he was different.

Chorus 1

Chorus 2

I told you when I came I was a stranger.

Again the repetition of that line seems to say that it is a very important part of the song, and I think the placement at both the beginning and the end is supposed to be a symbolic contrast.

Hope I could give some clarity! Sublimechump seemed to have it pretty much right on the nose there.

ps. Keep an eye out in the performance at the end. There's a tear on his cheek. Sad, eh?

For being political, I like that it's fairly nonspecific. Everyone can relate to watching people around them be lied to, or being lied to themselves. That whole "illusion vs. reality" thing and how the lines really have become so blurred.

Easy to relate to...fairly non-conformist/anti-establishment. Really touches on the fact that it can be an awful thing to lose the individuality of each citizen in a society.

Overall

great lyrics + great melody = one hell of a song.

I grew up listening to this song...like as a kid this song was my anthem during the summers. I love it...the message is so melancholy...and the song is sad...but the funny thing about it is that the kind of uptempo chorus kind of fools you for a second til you get back to the verses and you're like "Well shit! This is a *really* sad song!"

A lot of good memories associated with this song...which is kind of a funny irony I guess.

I could see this from a younger person's point of view...19 or so? Who knows...just sounds like a song about a girl he cares about that's dying emotionally...and in the end is consumed by her sorrow.

Beautiful song.

Placebo – Pierrot The Clown Lyrics 15 years ago
He's comparing himself to Pierrot...so maybe he's saying he can identify with Pierrot in the outsider mentality?

Sounds like an abusive relationship of some sort. Whether with a person, or a substance is obviously up to interpretation. I guess the great thing about lyrics is different people can identify with them in different ways. One person can see themselves in the song, while yet another totally different one can find a way the song relates to them.

I'm gonna take a guess and say this was originally another love/drug comparison. That's what many Placebo songs seem to highlight...how love can grow into an addiction much like drugs can. And maybe how both can do equally horrible things to you.
