SIAMÉS – The Wolf Lyrics 7 months ago
Ignoring the video and just going by the lyrics, they say "sexual predator" to me. Not too old? Not too young? Sounds like target selection, not addiction.

Boz Scaggs – Lido Shuffle Lyrics 1 year ago
Missed the boat=Lost a good opportunity Probably if he'd stayed he could have had the land maybe been a farmer but he deliberately passed on the smart move.

Juke joint=A bar with a juke box. Did he steal the car from one?

Grab a handle=Took a half gallon bottle of liquor.

Chi town, let it roll=Gambling in Chicago. Illegal gambling

He's for the money, he's for the show=He's waiting for the start of something

One more job=He doesn't seem like the type to take legitimate employment. So "job" probably means "criminal operation". He was waiting for the job to happen.

Toe the line=Conform to the demands of someone more powerful. His criminal activities have angered someone. Probably organized crime since Chicago is noted for it.

Or blow= Or leave

He does in fact leave after being threatened but commits one more job on the way.

Heart – All I Want to Do Is Make Love to You Lyrics 2 years ago
@[identificator:13573] Repeating the chorus doesn't mean they have sex again. It's just him remembering what she said now that he knows her ulterior motive. It's not surprising that the song was written by a man. After all it makes the first person character look pretty bad.

Lorde – Yellow Flicker Beat Lyrics 2 years ago
The first verse is about her external image as the figurehead of the revolution.

The second verse is her feeling of detachment from the revolutionaries who are making use of her.

The third verse on the other hand is her internal anger and how her former fans in the capitol are beginning to fear her.

The fourth verse is her growing trauma.

The fifth verse is about the overthrow of the former rulers.

@[Letmein:8370] Considered in isolation it sounds like the story of a man recruitment as a spy.

Muse – Dead Inside Lyrics 2 years ago
It's not a relationship song. Not between two human beings that is. What "unleashes drones" and "confines and erases" people? The answer is not "your girlfriend". It's about the protagonists relationship with a dystopian national government. This is another song along the lines of Uprising. Consider that the "next song", Psycho is about induction into the military.

Matthew Good – Alert Status Red Lyrics 5 years ago
A criticism of the willingness of people to abandon "soft" ideas of civil liberty because of the fear of terrorism, despite the limited damage terrorism can actually do. "The sun comes up instead". The title and chorus refrain refers to the much mocked colour coded terrorism alert status that was abandoned some years later.

Ima Robot – Greenback Boogie Lyrics 6 years ago
Yes, "greenback" means money. And "huff" and "toss" are both synonyms for puke. It seems he's blowing his ill-gotten gains on excessive partying. (Note that the video begins with two people vomiting, and has a running story about a briefcase of drugs). "Bean Pie" is commonly associated with African-American cuisine so the line may indicate that his profitably illicit sideline is causing him to have to reluctantly deal with black gangsters, or go into a black neighbourhood to do business.

Jeff Beck – Ambitious Lyrics 7 years ago
I them as the cast of a legal drama. The defendant is rich and overconfident, and has been doing sketchy things in his wheeling and dealing. The judge is a former juvenile delinquent who managed to rise above her beginnings. The lawyer for the other side is an aggressive legal hot shot out to take the defendant down.

Bobbie Gentry – Ode To Billie Joe Lyrics 7 years ago
The abortion idea just doesn't hold water. It's not like abortionists give the result back to the parents. That they were tossing flowers doesn't seem all that unreasonable. The song isn't really about that, or why he committed suicide. (The movie's answer, drunken gay sexxors bitterly regretted in the morning, is as good as any). It's about the the sinister indifference of her family to his death and her feelings about it. There's no support structure there. She's totally alone, trapped in her grief, and the feeling I get is that she and her mother will be unable to ever move on from their mourning or even share their feelings with each other.

submissions
Bobbie Gentry – Ode To Billie Joe Lyrics 7 years ago
No, the fact that it's gone symbolizes that she's upset because her boyfriend just _committed suicide_. Seriously. It's to tell the audience that this news means a lot more to the singer than it does to her family.

OneRepublic – All The Right Moves Lyrics 7 years ago
The boy isn't a beggar, you know. He's working for the band, collecting payment for the performance and doing a little larceny where the opportunity presents itself. In the end I think the song is about envy. It doesn't describe downtrodden and oppressed people. It describes people who aren't living a hard life, but want so much more and feel frustrated that they can't be at the top.

Natalie Imbruglia – Torn Lyrics 7 years ago
Incidentally, I think Imbruglia's pop style works better. The original was heavy, laden down with electric guitar, but the lyrics are fundamentally about a girl's hopes and disappointments and benefit from a lighter touch.

submissions
Natalie Imbruglia – Torn Lyrics 7 years ago
Actually in the music video the "house" is revealed to be a set. Natalie's character in the video is in fact an actress (as she was on a soap opera), and the romantic byplay is all fake, a performance for the camera, first revealed when the stage manager/director moves them for a better camera angle. They move the furniture because filming is done and the set is being struck around her. It's one of the subtler uses of a video to reflect the song which is about a woman disappointed by how much of her lover's qualities exist only in her imagination.

Evanescence – Sweet Sacrifice Lyrics 7 years ago
Apart from the chorus (fear is only in our minds), the song appears to be from the point of view of a criminally abusive man on trial for his crimes, bitterly sarcastic about his victim who he regards as ruining his life by filing charges and testifying.

Eminem – Love The Way You Lie (feat. Rihanna) Lyrics 8 years ago
It's a song, not an autobiography. Also, it's progressive. At first she "loves his lies" because they are what she wants to hear, but later she's trying to leave and he's threatening to kill her if she does it again.

Linkin Park – The Catalyst Lyrics 8 years ago
Seems to be about nuclear war.

"We're a broken people living under a loaded gun"

We have long since accepted the potential for nuclear holocaust so much that it's no longer even that much of a concern, and nuclear arsenals can't be fought or escaped from.

''And when I close my eyes tonight''
''To symphonies of blinding light''
''Like memories in cold decay''
''Transmissions echoing away''

If we were annihilated by a nuclear exchange tonight, our old radio and television signals would be all that was left to say we were ever here. Which is of course an exaggeration.

''Far from the world of you and I''
''Where oceans bleed into the sky''

The point where the oceans "bleed" into the sky is the horizon.

"God bless us everyone" and "Lift me up/Let me go" are requests for divine intervention.

Lady GaGa – Alejandro Lyrics 8 years ago
I'd go with: She's a woman who maintains an entourage of young and hot gay men and is particularly hung up on one of them, Alejandro. Eventually she realizes that vicariously experiencing their love lives is unsatisfactory and cuts off the connection.

submissions
Lady GaGa – Alejandro Lyrics 8 years ago
Whether she is or not, that interpretation is sheer bollocks. The Holy Spirit has nothing to do with fame, and God is normally portrayed more as a judge than as man's defender. The role of the defender of man would normally be ascribed to Jesus, or the archangel Michael. And what the song's character is asking is not to not call Alejandro. It's for Alejandro to not call her.

submissions
Brandon Flowers – Crossfire Lyrics 8 years ago
I don't think I can go for the abuse/stalker explanation. The feeling I get is an uncynical story of young love. Yes, as the song starts he's on the street outside her window, but that's the romantic cliche of the teenage boy trying to win the girl. The secrets she's been keeping on her pillow are her thoughts about him. Does she love him? Does she want him?

The next verse puzzles me a bit. He's in her room and she's turning down the lights to dress? Then again it was still before and now it's storming. Maybe they are now in their adult life, and she's leaving to go to work? That she's leaving for work and he isn't may be one of the problems that make up the the metaphorical storm threatening their relationship? He may not be able to find work yet
