I'd like to actively encourage the toughest man to dance as hard as he can to this, my song. And bring your stupidest friends along. We wrote this song because it's fucking boring to keep spelling out the words that you keep ignoring. And your mscho shit won't phase me now. It just makes us laugh, we got your cash, court-jester take a bow. Because did you know that when I was nine, I tried to fuck a friend of mine? HE was 8, then I turned 10. 14 years later it happened again (with another friend). This time me on the receiving end. And all the fists in the world can't save you now. Cuz if you dance to this, then you drink to me and my sexuality. With your hands down my pants by transitive property.

    Hahaha... I think that this song is a play on all of the macho mother fuckers who go to concerts to fuckin rock out, and show everyone (including themselves) how fuckin' tough they are.

    "less talk more rock!" they scream. This song is for them. Funny thing is, I bet some homophobe considers this his favorite song, probably headbangs to it, and has never heard the lyrics.

    I hate all this "pop" shit. They say they are just trying to get a message accross to the the fans. What message? The fact that they can't get a girl to fall in love with them? And people actually like that!?!? Those "pop" lovers should read some of Propaghandi's lyrics and find out what writing music is all about.

    another song about stupid macho mofos, but propagandhi (as usual) writes and delivers it so much better than any other band.

    pretty much everyone who has posted on this song has reinforced what it's about. its about how everyone listens to propaghandi and its good music and everything, and even though they keep saying important messages with thier lyrics, a lot of people dont even try to think about what the song means or the message they're trying to convey. "We wrote this song because it's fucking boring to keep spelling out the words that you keep ignoring." i dont think it gets any plainer than that. most people just ignore the message and listen to the music. and i think the last part of the song, the one where he talks about fucking his friends is just thrown in there just to say something completely fucked up and strange and at the end he's like "Cuz if you dance to this, then you drink to me and my sexuality. With your hands down my pants by transitive property." he's saying "look what you're agreeing to that you could've avoided by reading the lyrics and interpreting what the song is about. you're dancing to the cool pop-punk song and little do you know that im insulting you for not reading the lyrics." i dont think i explained it very well, but i tried. i think their song "anti manifesto" from "how to clean everything" is about the same thing except for not the fucking your friends part.

    I don't feel the need to state what this song is about as it has already been done.

    This is one of my favorite songs because it's so true and I admire Propagandhi's willingness to say whatever the fuck they want.

    I don't think it's necessary to post to add anything else to this discussion, so I won't. :)

    Brilliant song. I didn't realise that Chris was gay? Well that is what the songs says isn't it?

    @JAStewart: a man having sex with a man doesn't make him gay. As much as us homos would hope, heh.

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."

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
