Tomorrow is just another day
When I let the sunshine meet my conscience
You told me stories, gave me new ideas
Pretend only you, you know the answers

I wait longing for you baby
Hmm-mmm-mmm
There's no one around me
Wanting me
'Cause you know, and I know
Enough to understand
I'm a warm waiting idol
Above

Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me why

Yet another day is waiting
Now, love don't mean nothing
'Cause I'm alive
Hear me out!
Hear me out!
I'm calling, strolling
With an airplane ticket
But nowhere to go
Nowhere to go...


Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me now

Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now
Tell me, tell me now
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me why

    Does anyone have a good idea of what this means? I have some idea, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

    Basically I think it starts off talking about a relationship gone kinda bad...a kind of controlling guy "pretend only you, you know the answers."

    Anyway, the girl feels abandoned by him somehow and is distraught. "I wait longing for you baby, there's no one around me wanting me."

    Then the chorus: "Is this what you want? Do you want a piece of mind? Tell me now, Are you short of cash? Our thing was made to last Tell me, tell me now, Tell me why?"

    I think this indicates some anger coming into play. She feels the only reason he'd have for showing back up is because he wants something from her (i.e. money). And then she just wants to know why he hurt their relationship the way he did.

    The next stanza indicates the speaker beginning to heal: "Love don't mean nothing, cause I'm alive." She realizes she can move on and that a relationship is not everything there is to life. However, she still feels somewhat lost... "With an airplane ticket, but nowhere to go."

    So she begins to heal, but is still carrying the burden of this sadness on her.

    Anyone have other ideas about this??

its amazing how far music can come.. 24 years after it released and its one of the most heartfelt songs ive heard

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.
