Let's take a blast to the moon baby
I sit around wishing you well
How I'm craving you, yeah!
Every time I'm near you
I always want to swallow you down
I'll be right here if ya need me
In my life, ill need you here, don't ask why
I'll never disappear
Why is it every day that I feel the pain?
Lets take a trip to the stars far away
Where were you when I was down?
Staring into the dead
My pain is caused by my pleasure
My soul mate lives in your body
I can't get you out of my head
It never goes away
In my life, ill need you here, don't ask why
I'll never disappear
In your eyes you can bid me farewell
But don't ever try to understand the situation
Why is it everyday that I feel the pain?

    Bleh listening to it more sounds like "I always said I'd never feel this way again, but I just keep making the same fucking mistakes over and over and over... I can't believe I thought this would be over"

    This song means that he found it, what we all look for, a real feeling of passionate love on every level for someone and it can only be explained if she was indeed his soul mate. For whatever reason, they cannot be together but that does not mean that the thoughts or the love he feels for her ever stops. Sadly for them, it is an impossible love and he knows it. In a desperate attempt to be with her, he suggests taking a trip far away from the reality that keeps them apart but she won’t go. He desperately wants her to know that what he feels is real. He wants her to know that she is tattooed in his brain. He wants her to know that he wants her by his side when times are hard wondering why it can’t be in her arms, close to her heart, that he finds refuge in his dark times. He wants to offer her the same support, that she may find refuge in his arms, close to his heart at well. He has all these good wishes for her. He wants her to know that he desires not only her body but also her soul. When he’s in the same room with her no matter what time of day, she becomes his full moon baby driving him to lunacy with love. He tries to make her understand when she asks what is happening that there is no explanation for what is taking place in his heart or in his head. He wants her to know that he’ll be there if she calls and that he’ll wait for her forever if he has to even though the pain of being without her makes his body physically ache. His ache then turns to anger that makes him regret what he can’t help feeling, that burning, crazy, in-love feeling he had forbidden himself to feel again. Even though he tries to fight himself and this feeling of love at the end of the song, he knows he can’t fight the way he feels. When he sees her again, he knows his heart will melt because it’s all real and it makes him prisoner to a feeling of pleasure for loving her followed by pain because he knows she can’t be by his side.

    Maybe it's because he has this vision of the perfect woman and goes out seeking her but can never find her so she just lives in his head in a fantasy world. He just wants to travel to the stars with her, he can do anything with her because she doesn't exist.

    I don't know, I just a thought.

    Pff, Ok, I thought I had this one, but I'm not sure.

    Facts: -Godsmack are into spirituality and voodoo. -The Moon is a metaphor for Madness. -The song is spilt into a part with lyrics and the awesome instrumental frenzy part.

    "The Moon is tought to transform some people into strange people into strange creatures that drive others MAD"...(First Man on the moon) "...or is it all just Lunacy".

    Could this be about the all old Werewolves story of being incapable of being near a loved one, because of the danger? "..How I'm craving you" "Every time I'm near you, I always want to swallow you down"

    Or about going insane with somehow unreachable love? "Let's take a TRIP to the MOON, baby"

    It sounds really confusing, he's asking all kinds of questions "why is it everyday that I feel the pain?" "where were you when I was down?" But tells the one he's talking to not to ask why he needs (her/it?), because he'll go away if he knows.(Go mad?)

    Some more info on that serie "Mysterious Forces Beyond" could be very helpful indeed. Apparently the program was hosted by a guy named Nick Mancuso. An actor who had studied psychology before going on professional acting. The clips have to be from the "We are not alone" episode, which covers: Angels, Ghosts and....Vampires!

    So, we've come closer! It's about Vampires and their lust for love, and the tragedy of having to drink and ultimately kill your loved one. And it all makes sense in a sudden!

    The description comes with a quote: "Few creatures of the night have captured our imagination like vampires, but do they really exist?" And so,"Moon Baby" is the "part 1" of "Vampires" featuring on their follow up album "Awake" Listen to them after one another, for an amazing experience.

    Sorry for the long post, but I think was worth it.

    hey offdutyninja17, FUCK YOU! u know nothing about godsmack u bible-holdin' fuckin' prick. how is godsmack satanic? "LOOK AT THERE NAME!" there name came from either the cold sore story, or from the song God Smack by the greatest band ever, Alice In Chains. don't judge a book by it's cover asshole. they don't write about the devil. sully writes about himself. the only song not about himself is voodoo which he said is about some movie i can't think of write now cuz i'm too pissed off. fuck u douche bag!

    sorry bout bout that every1, but people like that piss me off

    I think it's about a girl that he loves with all his heart, but he doesn't know if she feels that way about him too. and he's too shy to ask her if she loves him or to tell her he loves her. that's wut i get out of it cuz i'm goin thru that now.

    Has any1 seen them play this live. it's even better. and when the intrumental part kicks in the pit goes fuckin ape shit! they gotta put out a live album.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
Album art
Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
Album art
I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
Album art
Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
