The Tallest Man on Earth – Love Is All Lyrics 1 year ago
@[krystyne10:20914]

Haha, hey krystyne10. I'm Sytch, just some guy. Yup, I guess I'm still alive. Does my tone really reek that strong of suicidal tendency? I swear, I've already decided not to, no matter how it all goes and gets!

Glad to see that people out there are still discovering The Tallest Man On Earth.

Damn! I had wished he was saying "I'll go anywhere you don't."

Boy, what does THAT say about my love life!

Come on, haven't any of you guys gone to the beach with your girl and a bag full o' yummy mushies?
The whole trip interspersed with moments of profound clarity and insight -- "Note the trees, baby. Because the dirt is temporary."

This one time, I ate a bunch of mushrooms with some friends. We went for a walk, and I caught myself getting a little too fascinated with the sun. That's when I knew what this song is about. Starin at the damn sun, burning your god damn eyes out.

It's about sex, and being with another person, more specifically a special person.. while on mushrooms. Fun!

The Pharcyde – Bullshit Lyrics 8 years ago
This song is about virgins. Tellin' 'em to get on up off that bullshit, and stick it in.
It doesn't get more obvious with Slim Kid saying it's "time to go all the way with it" and not to just "sit there and stare or play with it," talkin' 'bout yo dick!
Also, Slim Kid says "Now you're far from alive when the truth tantalizes your eyes," not "far from a lie." He's talking about watching porn.

They're talking to virgins. As sort of a precursor and introduction to the album, it's like their saying "Okay, first things first. To really get what we're getting at, to all you fellas, get on up off that bullshit, baby. You gotta stop fighting that feeling."

Great song. Slim's verse is smooth.

Hmm.
I think people may be looking at this the wrong way. Maybe we shouldn't be assuming everybody feels love is a great thing.
I don't think he's talking about a break up or losing somebody. Rather, I think he's talking about losing himself, about not loving anymore, or at least, trying not to. Look, love is all, right? That's what everybody says. Well, my heart has learned to kill, he's saying. Not that he wants it this way, which is why the tears come. But something in him fights them, pushes them back, and so he lets them go.

Notice how he says he walks on the river like it's easier than land. This paints an image of a man who is of a different breed than other humans, doesn't it? Everyone loves. Everyone loves to love. That's normal. Like walking on land. But he's a little different. It's as if he walks on water. He knows this of himself, and it's almost as if he's warning other people, don't try to love me. He's got evil in his pocket, you see, and he'll throw your will into the current that he stands upon still.
Sort of reminds me of Chris McCandless, or Alexander Supertramp as he is more commonly known.

Also, when he says he can rise from the harness of our goals, I don't think he's speaking of the goals of he and some significant other. I think he's talking of the goals of your typical society. Those goals having to do with love and companionship. These goals are a harness, strapping him down, keeping him in. And he can rise from them, letting go of the petty human need of companionship.

Remember in The Wild Hunt, how he said time and time again how he plans to be forgotten when he's gone? I don't think he's looking for love, guys. I think he's looking to get away from it.

It's kind of funny, because when you glance at the track listings for the first time, not knowing what to expect from each song, you read "Love Is All" and you imagine he'll sing of how love is all there is worth having. But really, it's just the opposite.

Hope I don't sound too pretentious. I'm not trying to be.
