So much pain to ease my simple mind
No hope - I've been crucified
And no one seems to care

(Don't you feel like a bitch)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)
(Don't you feel like a bitch)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)

The first time I knew you lied
I ended up crucified
My hate you wear for my cross you bear
It's for me I swear

What's with you
You leech off my desire
A faceless name
So untrue you're wasting away

(Don't you feel like a,)
(Don't you feel like a,)
(Don't you feel like a shit)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)

    It sounds like Lajon is talking about a single person or group taking the music he has created hence

    "You leech off my desire"

    They, also, sound like they are making empty promises to make themselves better...like some of the people in the industry do to save their careers or at least that's what it sounds like to me.

    Could have some religious meaning - i.e. the title for one, and "my hate you wear for my cross you bear". That line to me says the cross of christ is a symbol of hate and suffering, which i would agree with, but i doubt that is it because if i remember right all the members thank god in the Animosity cd booklet. I still see a religious meaning to the song though...but that's just how it comes through to me, any way, the song fuckin rules.

    I think that the the image of a crucifixion is just supposed to symbolize someone's suffering caused by someone else who's used them, not necessarily having any religious meaning to this instance.

    A crucifixion wasn't anything special for Jesus, it was just a regular form of punishment at that time for the worst criminals as it was the most painful and torturing punishment they could think of. That's why I don't think it has to be religious, but that's just me...

    A quick correction The first time I knew you lied I ended up crucified My hate you wear for 'your' cross 'I' bear It's for me I swear

    Just kind of bugs me when lyrics are wrong. This is a great song.

    this song to me is about a break-up that doesnt make any sense, like a woman crucifying him for his love, she lies to him and what not, see the picture now

    I love this song...and I agree with eddog...I don't think there is a strait-forward religious connection...I think he's just talking about how he was just sent to torture after realizing for the first time that the one he loved....was never true to him...and destroyed him from the inside out...

    I'll tell you one thing right now and thats,that this song has nothing to do with religion...this song means: that he's been hurt by the one he loves..."The first time I knew you lied, I ended up Crucified" means: that he was hurt when he found out she lied to him for the first time..."No hope-I've been crucified, and no one seems to care" means: that he's hurt because, he has no more hope for his loved one, and that no one seems to care how he feels, and that he's hurt.

    I'm not positive what this song means but my interpretation is a guy probably lajon getting cheated on by some his girlfriend.(Don't you feel like a bitch) (Don't promise shit you'll never be) (Don't you feel like a bitch) (Don't promise shit you'll never be) Maybe these are his inner thoughts after finding out he has been cheated on. Crucified might be a metaphor for the pain this person has caused him.

    To me, this song is talking about a break up. The girl will lie (willingly or not) by telling him that she loves him and this and that, but when it comes down to it, she wont act as she talks. I think I am going through a very similar break up as the singer as multiple songs could support this situation.

    It's about being used. I know this feeling all too well.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
