The Lyrics Thread-Part II

That song gives me goosebumps. Listen to it in the dark.

Anyway, here’s a great site for anyone interested in lyrics and song meanings:
For everyone who wants to know the meaning of all these songs, you can go to this site and read and discuss them. I’ve spent hours there:
https://www.songmeanings.net

And for the lyrics I’m going to post, I’ll just give links so that you don’t have to scroll so much. Doesn’t that make more sense? :content:

Orgy - Fiction (Dreams In Digital) - This is a song I recently heard from my brother, and it’s really a good song about dreaming in a coma.

Daft Punk - Digital Love - LoL, another song with digital in the title, but it’s another one dealing with dreams. And I’m sure we’ve all had the experience described in the song. :tongue:

Hmm. I thought I had another, but I’ll try to think of it later.

Cant take my eyes off you

You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.
You’d be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There’s nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it’s real.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.
I love you, baby,
And if it’s quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don’t bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.
You’d be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it’s quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don’t bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay…

Spheres of Madness

One bigger than everything
In the crownof your own self you preach darkness
Yet would you be able to obey the lack of light?
Drakness,light,word,existence
Could it be false?
Salvation is nothing-nothing is salvation
the great fractal of existence sinks into itself
Nature calls for destroyer,desires
it is the highesttiem for holy zero to come
Collasping reality craves for the end
Everything rots in itself
Maybe its time to stop worshipping the own image
So non-existence s the only sense?
I rise in spheres of madness
In darkness of unknown i perish
To see,to remain all time
eternity in second,not

This is a lyric from my favorite Nine Inch Nails song. Maybe even my favorite song ever. I don’t really know. This is from the song ‘The Great Below’. If you havn’t heard this song, you should, it is a great one. I will write what the general meaning and what the meanings is to me after I write the lyric.

staring at the sea
will she come?
is there hope for me
after all is said and done
anything at any price
all of this for you
all the spoils of a wasted life
all of this for you
all the world has closed her eyes
tired faith all worn and thin
for all we could have done
and all that could have been

ocean pulls me close
and whispers in my ear
the destiny I’ve chose
all becoming clear
the currents have their say
the time is drawing near
washes me away
makes me disappear

I descend from grace
in arms of undertow
I will take my place
in the great below

I can still feel you
even so far away

This song is about what Trent Reznor thinks about death. More specificly suicide. Many think it is just him making death seem not so bad. But I dissagree. It isn’t about the feeling of death. It is about how much was wasted on one person he loved and it all didn’t matter because he didn’t have her. I also think that possibly the girl that he loved might have drowned at where he talked about ‘I descend from grace’. I think this because of the first line ‘Staring at the sea. Will she come?’ Just thought I would share what to me is one of the best lyrics I have ever heard or known.

some favorites of mine.

I could probably sit here for at least half of an hour copy and pasting Seattle band lyrics but I will limit it to one song(hopefully).

Alice in Chains - Would?
Know Me Broken By My Master
Teach Thee On Child Of Love Hereafter

Into The Flood Again
Same Old Trip It Was Back Then
So I Made A Big Mistake
Try To See It Once My Way

Drifting Body Its Sole Desertion
Flying Not Yet Quite The Notion

Am I Wrong?
Have I Run Too Far To Get Home?
Am I Gone?
And Left You Here Alone
If I Would Could You?

Sorry… its long (and thats not all of it)

The Mars Volta - Televators

The house half the way
Fell empty with teeth
That split both his lips
Mark these words
One day this chalk outline will circle this city
Was he robbed of the asphalt that cushioned his face
A room colored charlatan
Hid in a safe
Stalk the ground
Stalk the ground
You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stain walks crutch in hobbled sway
Autodafe
A capulary hint of red
Only this manupod
Crescent in shape
Has escaped
Pull the pins
Save your grace
Mark these words
On his grave

Point of view
Music and lyrics by Daniel Johns

Liberate the people that you hate
Then cut yourself again
Elevate then drop back down
And see which ones remain
Remember all that she can say
Is that she knows she wants it

You’ll make it through
With another point of view again
You’ll make it through
With another point

Accusation, does yes mean no?
Or have you changed your mind?
Kill the nation before it grows
And be one of a kind
Remember all that she can say
Is that she knows she wants it

You’ll make it through
With another point of view again
You’ll make it through
With another point

Pretend the world’s an ocean
Oh, I’m drowning
Pretend that I’m pollution
Oh, I’m dying
Pretend the steak’s a cowboy
And the kiss will kill you

You’ll make it through
With another point of view again
You’ll make it through
With another point

[b]My Resistance is Low

You touch my finger tips and my heart is aglow
You bend to kiss my lips and I can’t let you go

Maybe I should resist I’m a fool I know
But at a time like this my resistance is low

Your eyes have magic they seem to say
Come closer, come closer, my darling come closer
And somehow I can’t break away

Can’t you see I want to be adored more than you’ll ever know
And I’m going overboard with a capital oh.

So don’t be persistent
Please keep your distance
You know my resistance is low.

(repeat)

Play Me Like he Plays His Guitar

Every night I stand there in the crowd and watch him playing
So learn your body’s love song that I wish he only knew
If he played me like he played his old guitar he’s always strumming
Ran his fingers through my hair I’d play a love song too.

If he looked up for a moment then I know he’d realise
See me there and read the message written in my eyes
If he played me like he played that old guitar he’s always strumming
And ran his fingers through my hair I’d play a love song too.

I’m not sure about the lyrics in italics…

[b][color=blue]Let Your Love Flow … the Bellamy Brothers

There’s a reason for the sunshiny sky
There’s a reason why I’m feeling so high
Must be the season when those love lights shine all around us
So let that feeling grab you deep inside
And send you reeling where your love can’t hide
And then go stealing through the moonlit night with your lover

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show and you’ll know what I mean it’s the season
Let your love fly like a bird on the wind
And let your love find you to all living things
And let your love shine and you’ll know what I mean that’s the reason

There’s a reason for the warm sweet nights
And there’s a reason for the candle lights
Must be the season when those love lights shine all around us
So let that wonder take you into space
And lay you under its loving embrace
Just feel the thunder as it warms your face you can’t hold back

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show and you’ll know what I mean it’s the season
Let your love fly like a bird on the wind
And let your love find you to all living things
And let your love shine and you’ll know what I mean that’s the reason

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show and you’ll know what I mean it’s the season
Let your love fly like a bird on the wind
And let your love find you to all living things
And let your love shine and you’ll know what I mean that’s the reason.

Isn’t german beautiful? Maybe not…

Kraftwerk - Das Modell

Sie ist ein Modell und sie sieht gut aus
Ich nehme sie heut’ gerne mit zu mir nach Haus
Sie wirkt so kühl, and sie kommt niemand 'ran
Doch vor der Kamera da zeigt sie was sie kann

Sie trinkt im Nachtklub immer Sekt (korr-ekt!)
Und hat hier alle Männer abgecheckt
Im Scheinwerferlicht ihr junges Lächeln strahlt
Sie sieht gut aus und Schönheit wird bezahlt

Sie stellt sich zu Schau für das Konsumprodukt
Und wird von millionen Augen angeguckt
Ihr neues Titelbild ist einfach Fabelhaft
Ich muss sie wiedersehen, ich weiss sie hat’s geschaft

That’s by Johnny Cash. NIN did a cover on that song.

yes… i’ve killed men for less.

I don’t mind Johnny Cash and I still think that isn’t a well thought out answer. (Even though that doesn’t make a lot of sense it is nicer than what I was gonna post.)

ohh i have most every johnny cash cd… i just think respect should go where it’s due. reznor is responsible for those deep lyrics, not johnny. i should have probably thrown a smiley face in there or something… i was being facetious. :content: :grin: :tongue: :content: :grin: :tongue: :eh: :grrr: :peek:

Yeah it was a real big deal last year (I think) when an old guy like Cash covered Reznor’s geniusly dark song.

Opeth - Windowpane

Blank face in the windowpane
Made clear in seconds of light
Disappears and returns again
Counting hours, searching the night

Might be waiting for someone
Might be there for us to see
Might be in need of talking
Might be staring directly at me

Inside plays a lullaby
Slurred voice over children cries
On the inside

Haunting loneliness in the eye
Skin covering a secret scar
His hand is waving a goodbye
There’s no response or action returned

There is deep prejudice in me
Outshines all reason inside
Given dreams all ridden with pain
And projected unto the last[/u]

[color=red]FFEAR - Pulp

This is our “Music from A Bachelors Den” -
the sound of loneliness turned up to ten.
A horror soundtrack from a stagnant water-bed
And it sounds just like this.
This is the sound of someone losing the plot -
making out that they’re okay when they’re not.
You’re gonna like it,
but not a lot
and the chorus goes like this:

Oh baby,
here comes the fear again.
The end is near again.
A monkey’s built a house on your back.
You can’t get anyone to come in the sack
and here comes another panic attack
Oh here we go again.

So now you know the words to our song,
pretty soon you’ll all be singing along.
When you’re sad, when you’re lonely
and it all turns out wrong.
When you’ve got the fear.
And when you’re no longer searching
for beauty or love -
just some kind of life
with the edges taken off.
When you can’t even define what it is that you’re frightened of
this song will be here.

Oh baby,
here comes the fear again.
The end is near again.
If you ever get that chimp off your back.
If you ever find the thing that you lack
but you know you’re only having a laugh
and here we go again.
Until the end.

[color=blue]Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We’ve known each other since we’re nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC’s,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it’s hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them I’ll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, it’s hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I’ll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it’s hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev’rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach [/color]

Seasons in the sun -it’s beautiful.

Mad World - Gary Jules

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, Going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, No expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, No tomorrow

Chorus
And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
These dreams in which i’m dying, Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World, Mad World

Verse 2
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
Look right through me, Look right through me

Chorus
And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which i’m dying, Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very very
Mad World, Mad World

Here’s som lyrics.

[color=green]Led Zeppelin - Moby Dick

Led Zeppelin - Black Mountain Side[/color]

:happy: :happy: But seriously, here I’ll post some Pink Floyd. They are my favorite band, anyone else like them? I’ll post lyrics off my favorite album

Pink Floyd - Dogs

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you’re on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake
A certain look in the eye, and an easy smile
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you
You’ll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it’s going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
And in the end you’ll pack, fly down south
Hide your head in the sand
Just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest that you’ve sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it’s too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down alone
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I’m a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I’m just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake of this creeping malaise
If I don’t stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone’s expendable and no-one had a real friend
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And you believe at heart, everyone’s a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a seat in the stand
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone.

the man in the moon is sideways over the road
we’ll take that man with us wherever we go
down through the hills, we walk on cat’s tongues
sleep all day when the sun wakes up
once in a blue moon.

thats all i have so far. it was inspired by this last weekend.

WORDS Bee Gees

Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you near to me.
Don’t ever let me find you down, cause that would bring a tear to me.
This world has lost its glory, let’s start a brand new story now, my love.
Right now, there’ll be no other time and I can show you how, my love.

Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to me.
And I will give you all my life, I’m here if you should call to me.
You think that I don’t even mean a single word I say.
It’s only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away

RUBBER BULLETS 10cc

I went to a party at the local county jail
All the cons were dancing and the band began to wail
But the guys were indiscreet
They were brawling in the street
At the local dance at the local county jail
Well the band were playing
And the booze began to flow
But the sound came over on the police car radio
Down at Precinct 49
Having a tear-gas of a time
Sergeant Baker got a call from the governor of the county jail
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
I love to hear those convicts squeal
It’s a shame these slugs ain’t real
But we can’t have dancin’ at the local county jail
Sergeant Baker and his men made a bee-line for the jail
And for miles around
You could hear the sirens wail
There’s a rumor goin’ round death row
That a fuse is gonna blow
At the local hop at the local county jail
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do
Sergeant Baker started talkin’
With a bullhorn in his hand
He was cool, he was clear
He was always in command
He said Blood will flow;
Here Padre
Padre you talk to your boys…
Trust in me -
God will come to set you free
Well we don’t understand
Why you called in the National Guard
When Uncle Sam is the one
Who belongs in the exercise yard
We all got balls and brains
But some’s got balls and chains
At the local dance at the local county jail
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
Is it really such a crime
For a guy to spend his time
At the local dance at the local county jail
At the local dance at the local county jail
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do
