Tune in, drop out of love,
Pull the trigger, I'm a hippie,
So said a truth, and blood,
Alive and well,
You push the buttons.

Standing in line of fire,
For the whole,
My soul,
Step codes,
The drums,
And sing,
Love the children,
Learn to live with everything.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Zoom in, cut out at sound,
Make it feel so trippy
Hung up, let down to ground,
Forget the kill it's far to sticky

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

    I love this song. Love it so much, I'm naming my '65 Ford Mustang after it.

    here's my take:

    a hippie is stereotyped as a peace-loving treehugger right? she says lines like, "pull the trigger, i'm a hippie," and "standing in line of fire, for the whole," meaning she'll die for love in all its forms.

    It's good to hear a band that has a different sound, and pulls it off well. It's even better to hear a band that isn't producing songs filled with all the cliche'd...well, crap.

    yes but none of the above helps the cause.

    whats this song mean?

    is it about peace and hippy-ish stuff in a world of trigger happy presidents?

    CB2001 there is something you don't understand....Your big car has nothing to do with hippy life. The song tells us that we dont need much to be happy... just mixing sounds makes people feel good. When you are a hippy you dont need to drive a Mustang to find the hapiness. The truth in life is found in the smallest things.. like listening to morcheebah music

    I thought it was about how hippies used to stand in the way of soldiers so they couldn't shoot (pull the trigger, im a hippie). Could be wrong however.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
