Viewed the scene on a black and white T.V.
Chose your words, "Hey mom I want to be..."
So, study hard. Your work became your cell.
Don't you dare inhale, or you'll be damned to hell!
No!

Yes, back and in your prime and things are in a swirl.
Solaced with your choice, out pops a baby girl!
Family now complete, and power's in your hands.
You've won the greatest prize, it's time to take a stand.

Sphincter freed last on your common throne.
You think the kill weeds chompin' at your noodles flow.
There's somethin about the herb, so fast, hypnotize.
A ripened head change that'll pillow your eyes, yeah
pillow your eyes, pillow your eyes.

Will you be the superman inflicting drastic change?
The power of your name has spanded out a boundless range.
Will you meet the needs of a fast paced, awkward, life-span I call "we"?
Our trust is now within you. So by soul cries let it be.
Pillow your eyes, pillow your eyes

Sphincter freed last on your common throne.
You think the kill weeds chompin' at your noodles flow.
There's somethin about the herb, so fast, hypnotize.
A ripened head change that'll pillow your eyes, yeah
Pillow your eyes,

Pillow your eyes
Pillow your eyes
Pillow your eyes

Sphincter freed last on your common throne.
You think the kill weeds chompin' at your noodles flow.
There's somethin about the herb, so fast, hypnotize.
A ripened head change that'll pillow your eyes, yeah
Pillow your eyes, pillow your eyes

Pillow your eyes
Pillow your eyes
Pillow your eyes

Sphincter freed last on your common throne.
You think the kill weeds chompin' at your noodles flow.
There's somethin about the herb, so fast, hypnotize.
A ripened head change that'll pillow your eyes, yeah
Pillow your eyes, pillow your eyes.

Sphincter freed last on your common throne.
You think the kill weeds chompin' at your noodles flow.
There's somethin about the herb, so fast, hypnotize.
A ripened head change that'll pillow your eyes

    i think it's maybe talkin' bout how people see things and then they want to become them. but things get in the way and you fall for it.

    Yeah. I can't really get the groove of this song because I've never heard it (fucking shitty download sites), but it sounds like he's just bullshitting for four minutes while only saying "Look, pot makes everything better!"

    He is just talkin about smokin down. Pillow your eyes refers to how your eyes get puffy and you look tired after you smoke a lot of the herb. It is a man that smokes weed while sittin on the jon to get away from it all.

    i think this song is about how people always look down on weed as if its a terrible thing to do, when actually some people find it quite beneficial.

    i'm not pretending to know what this song is about but there is obviously some mentioning of growing up and raising a family and. there is a little bit about trust between two people in a relationship and also about two people becoming one and being able to live up to the standards of not only a relationship but working up to the standards of being the head of a family.. "Will you meet the needs of a fast paced, awkward, life-span I call "we"?" - for example..

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.
