Fillip Lyrics

It's happening soon, it's happening soon
It's scent has been blowing in my direction
To me it is new, to me it is new
And it's not gonna change for anybody


And it's gonna be our last memory
And it's led me on and on to you


It's gotta be here, it's gotta be there
It's gotta be now or I'll lose forever
To me it is strange, this feeling is strange
But it's not gonna change for anybody


And it's gonna be our last memory
And it's led me on and on to you


Accuse me
Trust me, I never knew
That you were the one
You were the one


And it's gonna be our last memory
And it's led me on and on to you

Like i said - something that makes you work or do something

An error occured.

Also, as stated earlier, fillip also means "one that is trivial or of little importance." Well if you've ever heard Matt say "Floccinaucinihilipilification" (yes, it's a real word) and you know what it means then you should see the connection. The 3rd meaning to fillip and the meaning of floccinaucinihilipilification are along the same lines. Look'em up.

An error occured.

it's about something which is going to happen really soon. and it's gonna be really quick and really sudden, like fliping your finger.

An error occured.

Fillip - to click one's fingers

An error occured.

fil·lip n.

  1. A snap or light blow made by pressing a fingertip against the thumb and suddenly releasing it.
  2. An embellishment that excites or stimulates: “Spritely tabasco onions, just a little crunch for the top, were an added fillip” (Alison Arnett).
  3. One that is trivial or of little importance.

I don't imagine there's a reason it should be spelled fillip when he would mean Phillip.

OK one more meaning! fil-lip A significant and often unexpected development With this definition, maybe this song goes with 'Unintended'

An error occured.

this song has both the weirdest time signiture changes, weirdest tempo changes and the weirdest chord change (the bit where it goes 'and on to yo-//-ou.) but i really really like it.

An error occured.

there's such thing as bisexuality. just a statement, no interpretation to this song at all.

all i want to say is the base in this song KICKS ARSE! 'scuse the language. Chris Wolstenholme and Domonic Howard are underrated. Sure Matthew Bellamy is amazing and a pseudo-god but so are the other two!

An error occured.

Anni, just because Matt Bellamy has a high-pitched voice doesn't mean that he's gay! I don't think anyone of us would mind if that were the case. But really, if Matt wanted to write a song about his love for a male, I doubt he would make it as apparently obvious as in this song. I agree with thelittlegirl468 in that being in love with anyone (first time or not) is a strange feeling.

"To me it is strange, this feeling is strange" - this doesn't neccessarily mean he's gay. It could mean that he's not used to loving someone, or he found out that he likes someone who he is not supposed to (eg. a good friend). To me this song is just about discovering something about yourself that people may not like, and deciding that you won't change yourself just to fit in. I might be wrong, but that can refer to so many other things than homosexuality. It's not that I have a problem with it, it's just that I think anni and radioheadxxslave are far off base here.

An error occured.

He's not gay. And I really, really don't think this is a love song. "It's happening soon...its happening soon..." If it were about him being gay what would that mean? Unless he was referring to anal sex. But seriously, and it's been explained multiple times what fillip can mean.

It's about something unexpected happening, whether it's something major (appocalypse, ice age, George W. Bush getting shot in the face) or minor I don't know. I don't feel like really analyzing this song. It sounds too filler to me.
