    Songs and their meanings.

    Post by Encore on Tue Jun 11, 2013 5:06 am

    We have the jukebox for showing songs, but we do not have a thread that tries to understand them.

    Make it stop.

    This song has one of the best massenges on the face of the earth. Whether it is about homosexual rights or "normal" bullying. Life will get better, and one day, perhaps in a long time, your life might be what it should be.

    The names that are mentioned are teens that committed suicide because they where bullied for being homosexual.





    Lyrics:
    Woah, woah.

    Bang bang go the coffin nails,
    Like a breath exhaled,
    Then gone forever.
    It seems like just yesterday,
    How did I miss the red flags raise?

    Think back to the days we laughed
    We braved these bitter storms together.
    Brought to his knees he cried,
    But on his feet he died.

    What God would damn a heart?
    And what God drove us apart?
    What God could

    Make it stop
    Let this end
    Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
    It's come to this,
    A weightless step.
    On the way down singing,
    Woah, woah.

    Bang bang from the closet walls,
    The schoolhouse halls,
    The shotgun's loaded.
    Push me and I'll push back.
    I'm done asking, I demand.

    From a nation under God,
    I feel it's love like a cattle prod.
    Born free, but still they hate.
    Born me, no I can't change.

    It's always darkest just before the dawn.
    So stay awake with me, let's prove them wrong.

    Make it stop.
    Let this end,
    Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
    It's come to this,
    A weightless step.
    On the way down singing,
    Woah, woah.

    The cold river washed him away,
    But how could we forget.
    The gatherings hold candles
    But not their tongues.

    And too much blood has flown from the wrists,
    Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss.
    Who will rise to stop the blood.

    We're calling for
    Insisting on
    A different beat, yeah
    A brand new song

    Woah, woah.
    (Tyler Clementi age 18)
    A brand new song
    Woah, woah.
    (Billy Lucas age 15)
    Woah, woah.
    (Harrison Chase Brown age 15)
    Woah, woah.
    (Cody J. Barker age 17)
    (Seth Walsh age 13)

    Make it stop.
    Let this end,
    This life chose me, I'm not lost in sin
    But proud I stand
    Of who I am
    I plan to go on living

    Make it stop.
    Let this end,
    All these years pushed to the ledge.
    But proud I stand
    Of who I am
    I plan to go on living.

    There are two meanings to this song, guess them both. One of them is obvious, though.

    Hmm... Danged what a silly song...


    Well something about a plastic... She wants someone dedicated too her, but does not necessarily needs to be sincere? Also, man-prostitute.

    It does not, but I will post as it makes it easier for people to read them and get the meaning.

    How else can the song have a meaning? I guess if there is a good expressive video... Yes.

    First meaning: She doesn't think anyone is good for her, so she makes a robot to be with her.But he is not real, and thus, it is driving her insane. You can tell the robot part pretty easily, and the insane part from how she starts reacting to him later in the video.

    Second meaning: A dildo.

    From way over here in Ameriland, it seems that most German songs are about murder, arson, and/or BDSM. Maybe this is because most German music I listen to is Aggrotech/Industrial type stuff.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv2ezg3xQ8w

    Here is a song whose meaning I like. It is about being a gangsta and eating ice cream.

    I see no point in attempting to decipher meaning in music.

    Its either clearly spelled out, or its not, and if its not there are too many ways to interpret any one thing for any "meaning" to be more than conjecture.

    no. I just don't do ascinine emotional appeals or ambiguity.

    For the record, i feel no sympath/pity for anyone who commits suicide. Their dead, they arn't suffering. If you must pity, pity the living.

    I think that this song is about how there are many musical genres, and many are considered "fake" or not "real". Take the band for example, they are an A-capella metal band, and is quite unique in that regard.

    They literally "Sing" a metal song. This song is basically a jab to all the persons that says they suck because they´re different. Now you might not like the music, but saying it sucks is not mature, because many people likes it.




    Lyrics:
    There you are not knowing who I am
    Am I arrogant?
    Am I harmless?
    Try to judge me
    Do it once again
    Do the best you can

    You can tell what I have felt
    When I once wrote this song?
    Still you wonder
    How somebody like me
    Can manage to get along

    (Chorus)

    All that I ever heard from you
    Is silence
    Pure Silence
    No guitars
    No randandan
    No "one for all"
    and "all for one"
    Listen to the crowd around me
    They will teach you
    To sing a metal song

    What it was like thirty years ago
    I cannot tell
    I'm twenty nine
    You've been a rebel?
    Long haired and tatooed?
    Who cares? I am fine

    I got the balls to live my life
    And to sing a metal song
    You won't tell me
    How to sing them right
    And how to carry on

    (Chorus)

    You can't stand all things about to change
    You are moaning
    You are crying
    Everything that's different from the past
    Makes you dying deep inside

    Face the fact that you're the reason
    We are here to scream
    You won't teach me how to write a song
    Power deep within

    (Chorus)


    A comment on youtube:
    Csoongor:

    To answer your question: randandan is a vocal materaliazation of pure epicness.
    Similar words are: Rakka Takka, Dundundun, dooee doee, etc.
    (Sorry for bad English)
    Rakkathanks for listening ^^

    Me neither, i don't get why anyone would commit suicide.
    If they wan't to die they clearly don't care about other People, not their Families and loved ones .

    So instead of killing yourself:
    Why not just loan a bunch of Money and fly to another Country, jump a shark or hijack a Car pretending to be a Hooker who cares ?
    No matter what you do you're dead anyway .

    And maybe then you see how beautiful the World actually is .

    The lyrics are on the video...


    I think this is telling an actual story. It is about these two married persons. They live the "perfect" life, children, two cars, a house and all that.

    Under the surface there is more too it though. The man is getting annoyed, as the woman expects too much from him, and he thinks less of her. They went for midnight drive, but they begin to fight. The loud music is vibrating the air, giving of a strangely calm feel.

    After the fight has ended there was a curve right next to a cliff, she is angry, and wishes to kill her, hence: "Do not put me underground, I was meant for a life somewhere else, Please love give me the wheel, before both of our hearts you steal tonight".
