Eleine – Enemies Lyrics 9 hours ago
I think this is about those who really step up in the line of fire. There are pretenders & cowards and then there are those who stand toe to toe against their enemies and will under no circumstances go down without a fight.

The 69 Eyes – Burn Witch Burn Lyrics 1 day ago
You're staring at your crystal ball
Who's the fairest of them all
Making potion for a lotion
Casting spells over the ocean
The evil eye is everywhere
Winged monkeys in the air
Poisoned apples free delivery
What happened to freedom and liberty

You gotta burn, burn witch burn
It's a cruel cruel cruel world
Got a one-way ticket no return
You gotta burn, burn witch burn

Everyday's gotta have new tricks
On the road with yellow bricks
Destination Emerald City
Where everything's wonderful and pretty
Gotta make it like wicked
But if a heart is black and crooked
Mirror mirror on the wall
Remains silent and then you fall

You gotta burn, burn witch burn
It's a cruel cruel cruel world
Got a one-way ticket no return
You gotta burn, burn witch burn
You gotta burn, burn witch burn
It's a cruel cruel cruel world
Got a one-way ticket no return
You gotta burn, burn witch burn

You're staring at your crystal ball
Who's the fairest of them all
Poisoned apples free delivery
What happened to freedom and liberty

You gotta burn, burn witch burn
It's a cruel cruel cruel world
Got a one-way ticket no return
You gotta burn, burn witch burn
You gotta burn, burn witch burn
It's a cruel cruel cruel world
Got a one-way ticket no return
You gotta burn, burn witch burn

Burn witch burn
Burn witch, burn witch burn
Burn witch, burn witch burn
Burn witch, burn witch burn

those are the correct lyrics, it won't let me edit the ones I posted, says has to go through copyright

I think this is about having so many wants/aspirations in life but having absolutely no direction or clarity to make any true sense of them.

Pearl Jam – Last Exit Lyrics 3 days ago
This song is about how fame open lives and ruins them by turning them into marketing. Fame can be fleeting & after a little time, no one will remember your existence. During the song, lots of metaphores lead to the understanding of running away and letting natural things destroy what's left of the person, just like the sun and the oceans (references vocalist Eddie Vedders surf passion). Closing the song, Eddie insists that his existence remains now under a strong decision of being depersonalized because, out of desperation, this is his last exit for survival.

Bad Wolves – Crying Game Lyrics 4 days ago
I think this is about a fractured relationship where the one who ended it felt used and abused. They are reiterating all of the details as to why they had to end things when they did and that the blame does not fall on their shoulders.

Bad Wolves – Crying Game Lyrics 4 days ago
Real lyrics:

Sometimes denial feels like a hole in the sky
Cutting me down in my prime
You took my time, kept running your mouth on my dime
Crying 'cause you lost your free ride

It's not you
It's on me
I let myself believe
Still you
Can't see
I seen through all your schemes

Every time I push you away
You come back
Back to me to place the blame
This crying game

Maybe you'll see, not just me that you mislead
Focused on the things that you'll never be, no no no
And time takes time, we're all on the clock for your crimes
The price is something that you could never pay

It's not you
It's on me
I let myself believe
Still you
Can't see
I seen through all your schemes

Every time I push you away
You come back
Back to me to place the blame
This crying game

It's not you
It's on me
I won't stop for these dreams
Every time I push you away
You play this crying game

Every time I push you away
You come back
Back to me to place the blame
This crying game

It's not you
It's on me
I won't stop for these dreams
Every time I push you away
You play this crying game

Sick of pretending that you're fine
No no no
That gun in your mouth just isn't mine
No no no
Sick of pretending that you're fine
No no no
That gun in your mouth just isn't mine

Saint Asonia – Beast Lyrics 24 days ago
This song is about battling the evil side of ones self or 'the beast' within. Deciding how to deal with it, whether to cleanse it from ones system completely or hide it from everyone and anyone.

As I Lay Dying – Blinded Lyrics 28 days ago
I think this has to do with vocalist "Tim Lambesis" is still tackling personal issues as he deals with the fallout of his imprisonment for attempting to procure a hit on his now ex-wife. This song is the whirlwind of emotions, including guilt & selfishness that he had to come to terms with in order to move forward with his post prison life and get back on good terms with his family, friends & band mates.

KoЯn – Finally Free Lyrics 29 days ago
I think this is about someone losing someone to suicide who they were very close to. They were aware of how much suffering this person was going through but couldn't face the fact in time to save them. They're hating themselves for not getting to the person in time & now assume this person's passing is partly their fault.

submissions
Avatar – Hail The Apocalypse Lyrics 29 days ago
I think this is more or less a satirical romp about those who are always saying the end is coming. It's saying to those who wish to belief this to be so, to not bother to cower in fear but to embrace it fully as they're gonna die either way.

Amaranthe – 1.000.000 Lightyears Lyrics 1 month ago
I think this song is about how there are some who lay low & continually play it safe in life and then there the ones who reach for the stars and really live with everything they've got.

Amaranthe – Helix Lyrics 1 month ago
I think this song is about no matter how far we may fall in our lives to always remember where we started from & that we've come so far. It's about remembering our core, where we began to help us further access our present state of being.

submissions
Sevendust – Moments Lyrics 1 month ago
I think this song is a warning message to the part of the population that just plays follow the leader and just assumes everyone else will follow suit. So many assume that no one will challenge the dead end thought process that seems so dominant nowadays - until someone steps up & begins to shake it all up.

Cellar Darling – Drown Lyrics 1 month ago

submissions
D Creation – Killdream Lyrics 1 month ago
I think this is about someone so infatuated with someone after the relationship as ended that they'd do anything to be with them again. Even if it means they have to rape or hurt them to make it happen, they are so out of their mind obsessed that they can no longer think rationally about this person & they must now do all that is necessary to become one with them.

Heart Of Jordan – Eye Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about someone who's realized the person they were in a relationship with has actually been a source of decay in their lives. They know what was hiding behind this persons eyes, the evil & the manipulation and they must now rid this person from their world for good.

Asmodai – Father of Lies Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about someone being approached by the god they thought they new their whole life & he instead presents himself as demonic being. After this encounter begin to only hear the voices of darkness ringing loudly throughout their brain, this god they thought they knew growing up, is actually one more akin to Satan. This now unmasked god to them now strives to shape them into a version of himself.

submissions
Týr – Sunset Shore Lyrics 2 months ago
Their songs subject matter revolve almost entirely around Viking lore, mythology & history, taking their name from Týr who is the god of war in Norse religion. So with that in mind I think this song is describing the journey of vikings on the seas from shore to shore, their hardships along the way as well as their triumphs.

submissions
Slipknot – Nero Forte Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this song is a response to all the haters out there who judge others for being who they want to be. They try to shove it in your face how they believe all others should behave & refuse to allow anyone to just be themselves.

submissions
Puddle of Mudd – Uh Oh Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about how we are only human, born to make mistakes, but it doesn't mean we should unfairly be judged or condemned by the person we're in a relationship with. No one is perfect afterall.

submissions
Skillet – Save Me Lyrics 2 months ago
Skillet themselves has said of the track: This song is about the darker side of you that you are afraid to show people. If they only knew how messed up I am, would they still love me? This song is about getting honest and asking for help. Relationships are hard and eventually the real you is going to appear.

submissions
Tool – Fear Inoculum Lyrics 2 months ago
The members of Tool themselves have discussed the overall meaning of this new album "Fear Inoculum" and that the subject matter centers on the effects of growing older and becoming wiser as a result. I think that is true of this song & makes sense as I review the lyrics. Though Tool songs in my opinion almost always feature layers of depth to wade through & process, my general analysis is that this song is about the aging process, not just of the body, but of the mind and spirit. How the coming of age so to speak can either handicap or empower us, that is we can chose to succumb to it or forge through & allow ourselves to become transformed by it in an emancipated, unrepressed fashion.

submissions
Killswitch Engage – I Am Broken Too Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this song is about how the struggle with addiction can become it's own form of suicide essentially. If you keep walking down that dark, dangerous path long enough eventually you'll come to face to face with the end of yourself, but by then it'll be too late.

submissions
Slipknot – Birth Of The Cruel Lyrics 2 months ago
The song, just like the other singles, talks about vocalist Corey Taylor struggles with depression in lines like:

'Never underestimate the agony'

Also, the song shows how he changed to overpass this problem, saying that it’s “the death of the fool” and “the birth of the cruel.”

submissions
KoЯn – Cold Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about not allowing haters to effect you in a negative way. Living your life, pushing through, no matter who judges or tries to knock you down - rising up in the face of all challenges/challengers.

submissions
Of Mice & Men – Earth & Sky Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about overcoming a force that is taking over someone, like addiction for example. They need to gain control over using any means necessary (by becoming more powerful then it) & must refuse to allow it to defeat them.

submissions
Parabelle – You Kept Me Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about two people imprisoned in a relationship that is utter hell but they can't seem to see their way out. All that's left now is raw pain & atrophy, the love is dead but neither one knows how to end things.

submissions
Mad John the Wise – The Way of Grace Lyrics 2 months ago
As for how I interpret this song, I believe the character in the song is one many can relate to. Perhaps you hunger to finally end the struggle of living from a consciousness of fear & separation. Maybe you yearn for a saner, wiser, more spiritually elegant way to move through the world. Also you may be weary of the dizzying pace of a culture that drives us ever further from our true nature. There is another way: a way of grace.

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks Lyrics 2 months ago
Mark Foster (of Foster The People) says of the that it's about a kid that basically is losing his mind & is plotting revenge. He's an outcast. I feel like the youth in our culture are becoming more and more isolated. It's kind of an epidemic. Instead of writing about victims & some tragedy, I wanted to get into the killer's mind, like Truman Capote did in In Cold Blood. Foster says he considered writing the song from the perspective of the victim, but felt that would be a cop out. He also points out that there is no actual violence in the song, as the threats are all the kid's internal monologue.

submissions
Wage War – Who I Am Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this has to do with how the media & online trolls tear apart bands & celebrities in general and forget that they're human & not just there for their amusement. These cowards hide behind their blog posts and online personas, talking trash without the actual guts to say it to anyone's face.

submissions
3TEETH – American Landfill Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this song is about what the world is becoming with technology being our main source of communication. How the world is becoming so digitally based that it's decaying our souls & lives in the process.

submissions
Asmodai – As The Seasons Change Lyrics 2 months ago
I believe this is about someone coming to the realization that the person they used to be is now dead. They feel as if some new identity has taken over, killing the old them in the process. The new darker self they now identify with (having purged away completely their former self) has now become the only way they can truly feel alive.

“MZRY” is the fourth single from Crown The Empire’s fourth full-length album Sudden Sky. The song explores vocalist Andrew Rockhold's struggles with his feelings & ruminating on them.

Sleeping with Sirens – Break Me Down Lyrics 2 months ago
”Break Me Down” is the second single off of Sleeping With Sirens sixth studio album “How it Feels to be Lost.” It is also the seventh song on the record. Vocalist Kellin Quinn has dealt with a lot in his life. These last couple of years have been very hard on him emotionally & physically. He’s telling the things that hurt him (possibly alcohol or drugs) that they cant break him anymore and he’s going to stand up against them and learn from his mistakes.

Unprocessed – Abandoned Lyrics 2 months ago
I think this is about someone experiencing seeing a UFO for the first time and then being captured, how the experience was so surreal & all encompassing, a mix of awe & doom moved through him. It also describes how once he's brought back to earth how abandoned he felt at that moment after they left him.
