i don't care how she treats me anymore now
cause every time i try to argue
she walks right out that door
but its just not how you look
well its just its how you feel inside
it don't matter if you got any money or not
if you hold your head up high
i'll tell you once what i'm really coming out to do
i'm gonna burn this system to the ground for you
radio and tv shows try to make you play the roles
don't let them take you for a ride
one more day, to leave it all behind
to go where you have never even tried
don't you let your inhibitions guide your way
baby won't you look at me?
but you ain't got the time of day
cause i ain't got no money
but what is money if you ain't got happiness
it really don't make sense to me
i ain't got no status or fucking album rock
but i still got the voice to sing
so what?
i ain't got no status
i've just got a mind of my own
what do you want with status?
we ain't got no status
we've just got a mind of our own
do you have a mind of your own?

    :D this song tells me to keep going even though life sucks-- "one more day, to leave it all behind, to go where you have never even tried" means leave status and money out of the picture for once and live life without worrying about it.

    Actually, I kinda get it now. This song is basically liking somone for who they are and not what they have. Like the saying "Choose quality over quantity." And basically thinking for yourself. Not caring about someone's status. But about them.

    This song is speaking out about how in our capitalist, greed induced society many people are concered more with money and the status created by having a lot of it! The Bandits are saying 'Fuck money and fuck status!' there is more to life and people than all that superficial junk....Awesume tune!

    I love this song!! My Favorite line is..."but what is money if you ain't got happiness" It's so True!! Money means nothing if you don't have something else to fill that void in your life.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
