Jessie J – Domino Lyrics 3 months ago
@[JeanLuc25:26594] or is it all about drugs??? Disguised as a song about sex?? Certain lines to me don't really fit the "sex" meaning (they imply the singer is a male, but make sense if by a female singing about drugs).

submissions
Jessie J – Domino Lyrics 3 months ago
@[SamuelLeumas:26592] I think I have to agree with you, because a few lines in it don't align with sex for me.

e.g. Your like a shot of pure gold - you wouldn't have this line at the start (sort of implies the man has come, which would be at the end of a song)

Pull me like a bass drum - I could understand if from a man's perspective, but drugs are more likely to have a pulling effect on you (if you're a female)

Sparkin' up a rhythm - drug reference all day

Take me down like I'm a domino - again would understand sexual reference if from a male's perspective (otherwise more suited to a depressant drug or the after effects of a upper)

Nickelback – Photograph Lyrics 3 months ago
@[mdtripodi:26591] yes Nickelback's lyrics are terribly cliche, but I guess by keeping it simple and cliche they appeal to the widest audience. Definitely won't win any poetry contests, but there is no money in poetry ... so guess that tells you everything

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Hey Joe Lyrics 3 months ago
@[butterroll:26497] the Vietnam War did start in 1955, but direct US involvement wasn't until 1965. But I agree it isn't about a Vietnam vet or the war.

submissions
The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Hey Joe Lyrics 3 months ago
@[Tchap:26496] considering the song was written before the USA joined the Vietnam War (and Hendrix recored his version only 18 months after they had joined) I would suggest that it is not. There's no mention in the song of "returning", "tour of duty" or anything else that suggest they are a vet (the anti-war movement was only starting at the time of Jimi's release too).

M.I.A. – Paper Planes Lyrics 3 months ago
@[fasteddie72:26494] Fuck tha Police is actually a very insightful song that focuses on the police brutality and profiling that was current at the time (many will argue continues to today) - and society ignorance to the matter. The song really put the perspective of a persecuted minority in the spotlight.

Zoungla – Do You Remember? Lyrics 3 months ago
A song about looking at the glass as half full rather than half empty IMO. Yes there is "shit" in the world, but there are plenty of beautiful / wonderful things in the world ... something to "remember".

I like the lines "Half of its shit / It's perfect" ... sung so beautifully, so still not concerned that there is "shit" in the world, because that is reality (which is "perfect").

submissions
Zoungla – The Big One Lyrics 3 months ago
Given the last line and the album title "Family" this song appears to be about the dreams and aspirations a father has for their child (grown adult now). The narrator is realising all that their father wanted for them (and perhaps hasn't been able to give them ... or they haven't lived up to that expectation).

The "one day" lines may be suggesting that they are slowing getting towards their father's dream for them ... or otherwise talking to their dad and saying look at the small everyday achievements rather than the idealistic big dream you had for them.

submissions
Shirley Temple – When I'm with You [From Poor Little Rich Girl] Lyrics 3 months ago
I'd say the only line that is a bit concerning would be "Becomes a lovers lane".

The marriage line I can understand, it is from the point of a child. They want to be with their father all the time (like a wife) ... pretty sure in the movie the father is a widow too (so in context could be that the child wants to fill the void left by their mothers death on their dad ... a very normal reaction by a child, who doesn't really understand romance to love).

The rest is a sweet song pretty much a cry for attention by a young child, that is, don't spend so much time working, instead be here with me because they are the moments she enjoys most. Also embodies the play of words for the movie, Poor Rich Girl ... that is she is rich money wise but poor because of her father's priorities (that is wealth is more than your bank account).

Bleeding Through – Distortion, Devotion Lyrics 3 months ago
A few possibilities I feel for this song ... it could be about drugs, depression or a loved one IMO.

"The poisonous world" is the main thing that leads me to consider it could possibly be drugs. As the rest of the lyrics to me tend to float around them being a dark place previously (depression, taking drugs etc.) They are fighting to get out of this place but in essence the sense of reality is distorted (due to mental depression / illness / drug abuse) and now they are devote to their new reality (depression / drug).

The flip side is that it is about a loved one ... love can cause some distorted views of the world, and you are devoted to their love (and it can be poisonous afterwards if the separation isn't pretty).

Is this song directed to someone in particular by the band?? Ex-lover?? Family??

The repetitive nature of the song's lyrics suggest to me that this is almost an apology.

Porcupine Tree – Always Never Lyrics 3 months ago
It could very easily be based on the interpretation suggested by @[Service to busy] in regards to being about God / religion.

"deafness of your silence" ... how many people pray but never get an answer (spoken anyway), this could be very disheartening for someone looking for answers / needing someone to listen

"He said you're here
Here with me now" ... God is always there apparently (everywhere and anywhere)

"I feel no gain
When you're around me
I'll try again
In the darkness you astound me"

Struggles to see the benefit of believing, and the "darkness" could be either their loneliness or a metaphor for their non-belief (dark vs light).

submissions
Porcupine Tree – Always Never Lyrics 3 months ago
@[Service to busy] can definitely see where you are coming from with this prospective ... I think the line that probably gives most credence to your interpretation is "He said you're here".

If it was a romantic relationship I would generally assume it would be "she" not "he".

Trivium – And Sadness Will Sear Lyrics 3 months ago
@[stinger85:26398] at the trial it was stated that the initially they intended to simply rob him but something happened (contentious here) that led them to murder him ... hence he was found guilty of felony murder.

Although given how they attempted to murder him suggests it was far more than a simple robbery (or even drug deal) gone wrong. You wouldn't inflict such a beating if a robbery gone wrong, and doesn't sound like it was intended to "send a message" to other drug users (which would be the only reason for such a public display of the body).

The actual murder may not have been premeditated (considering how quickly they were arrested and poorly planned it was), but the actual murder definitely seems to suggest "hate" was the reason

submissions
Trivium – And Sadness Will Sear Lyrics 3 months ago
@[Caphon:26397] I can sort of see where you are coming from. Shepard to me would normally evoke thoughts of religion more so though, that is the Lord is our Shepard etc. Also tied to the fence like a scarecrow ... think crucifixion. However, given the context of the song if it was of a religious matter, it would be the religion that was to "blame" ... as you'd argue their religion bred the hatred.

submissions
Trivium – And Sadness Will Sear Lyrics 3 months ago
@[session13:26395] I think it refers to the "sadness" of a society that raised people to commit such an act ... Trivium hope that it will "sear" through people's apathy to allow hate to rule so many in society.

Leprous – Painful Detour Lyrics 3 months ago
Feelings of despair and depression come to me from this song. The scenery is set in a cold stormy area (in which humans tend to feel isolated) ... this is simply a metaphor for how they feel.

The chorus speaks of the despair they feel being trapped in their world of depression. They try to find a way out ("to belong") but they just can't escape their life / depression. It is a "painful detour" in life that they've taken (from the "path" ... which is a general metaphor for "life") ... and they don't know how to address it (depression ... how to get back on the path of living).
