Song Lyrics With Strong Meanings

Recommended Posts

Post your favourite song lyrics that make you stop and think. I will start obviously:

 

Blur - There Are Too Many Of Us

 

There are too many of us

That's plain to see

We all believe in praying

For our immortality

 

We pose this question to our children

That calls them all to stray

And live in tiny houses

Of the same mistakes we make

 

Cause there are to many of us

In tiny houses here and there

Passing out somewhere

But you won't care

 

For a moment I was dislocated

By terror on the loop elsewhere

Flashing lights advocate it

On big screens everywhere

 

There are too many of us

In tiny houses here and there

All looking through the windows

On everything we share

Can I post the entire catalog from RATM? Those guys defined my teenage years.

 

Anyways, here's a song I've been listening to a lot lately.

 

Street Joy by White Denim

 

I don't mind the sound
Of your voice, of your voice
When you use it like your gun
So much fun, fire your gun
Casual as you are, gets hard to say
I won't say, 'less you're going away

He strings himself on up to your front door
You've been a wall of ideas about the rich and the poor
We could start home talking
Make your focus break
When you're left to yourself
You throw it out anyway

I don't differentiate
We from they, we from they
Feel my appetite
Why is life sleepless night?
Lean my head against an angry moon
Always room, angry moon

In and out of a metal chair
In an unknown apartment where
I can build myself up
Before I make the scare
String myself up onto your front door

Street joy
You adore

Quite powerful, but I suppose a lot of these songs are quite depressing.  Like the lyrics I posted, Blur tends to sound like that more often than not (I am sure if you have heard of them because its more Britrock kind of stuff). I like alternative music quite a lot, it seems to have more to say.

RATM isn't exactly what I'd call depressing. Mostly political songs and weird guitar sounds.

I'm somewhat of a music nerd, mostly alternative stuff in most genres. This is a song that I want for my funeral. I'm not close to death or anything (that I know of, as close as anyone I suppose) and the song is positive, to me at least.

 

 

In my mind

In a future five years from now

I'm one hundred and twenty pounds

And I never get hung over

Because I will be the picture of discipline

Never minding what state I'm in

And I will be someone I admire

And it's funny how I imagined

That I would be that person now

But it does not seem to have happened

Maybe I've just forgotten how to see

That I am not exactly the person that I thought I'd be

 

And in my mind

In the faraway here and now

I've become in control somehow

And I never lose my wallet

Because I will be the picture of of discipline

Never ******* up anything

And I'll be a good defensive driver

And it's funny how I imagined

That I would be that person now

But it does not seem to have happened

Maybe I've just forgotten how to see

That I'll never be the person that I thought I'd be

 

And in my mind

When I'm old I am beautiful

Planting tulips and vegetables

Which I will mindfully watch over

Not like me now

I'm so busy with everything

That I don't look at anything

But I'm sure I'll look when I am older

And it's funny how I imagined

That I could be that person now

But that's not what I want

But that's what I wanted

And I'd be giving up somehow

How strange to see

That I don't wanna be the person that I want to be

 

And in my mind

I imagine so many things

Things that aren't really happening

And when they put me in the ground

I'll start pounding the lid

Saying I haven't finished yet

I still have a tattoo to get

That says I'm living in the moment

And it's funny how I imagined

That I could win this, win this fight

But maybe it isn't all that funny

That I've been fighting all my life

But maybe I have to think it's funny

If I wanna live before I die

And maybe it's funniest of all

To think I'll die before I actually see

That I am exactly the person that I want to be

 

F*** yes

I am exactly the person that I want to be

This is a song that I want for my funeral.

I would totally have Haha You're Dead by Green Day. Just perfect. Maybe Highway to Hell or Another One Bites The Dust too. Imagine those faces!

Hahaha that's perfect. I actually have a Spotify playlist with songs that I'm gonna force people to listen to at my funeral but it may be just too sentimental. I think I'll stick with your suggestions instead ☺

How soon are you planning on dying? Spotify won't be around that long.

Not anytime soon I hope. I hate that Spotify gives me the illusion that I own a lot of music. I'm scared to lose all music so I actually use google play music (better phone app imo) and pay for that and Spotify just to have a backup.

This song too:

 

"Stop The Dams"
 

When you're smoking tinfoil in the morning
It's gonna be a cold day
When you're keeping everything inside you
It can only hurt you

Unrelated sounds
The sun will shine again
You hold it in your hands

This young land is a young land let it stay that way
Its pollution only turns you into something you don't want to see in the water
A reflection of them that you receive

You don't own the sun
And the sun won't shine again
So maybe you're all in love
With Aluminium

The cling and a clang
Is the metal in my head when I walk
I hear a sort of, this tinging noise
Cling clang
The cling clang
So many things happen while walking
The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk
Freaks my balance out
So the natural thought
Is just clogged up
Totally clogged up
So we need to unplug these dams
And make the the natural flow
It sort of freaks me out
We need to unplug the dams
You cannot stop the natural flow of thought
With a cling and a clang

And wake me up again until
We're Aluminium
You hold it in your hands
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
 
By the same guy who I posted in the OP. If you are a hippy you would probably play that a lot. It kind of makes you think where the hell will the world be in 50 years or so though. Everything is kind of messed up now which I suppose leads me to this song:
 
"Bad Influence"

[Chorus One]
{Just pull the plug!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just pull the plug!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just let it gooo!}

[Eminem]
Hand me an .8, beam me up and land me in space
I'ma sit on top of the world {I'm here} and **** on Brandy and Mase
I'm more than ill
I'm scarier than a white journalist in a room with Lauryn Hill {Ahh!}
Human horror film
but with a lot funnier plot, and people that feel me
cause I'ma still be Madd Rapper, whether I got money or not {yup}
As long as I'm on pills, and I got plenty of pot
I'll be in a canoe paddlin, makin fun of your yacht
But I would like an award
for the best rapper to get one mic in The Source
and a wardrobe I can afford
Otherwise I might get sent up back-strike in a Ford
And you wonder what the **** I need more Vicadin for
Everybody's pissin' me off; even the No Limit Tank
looks like a middle finger sideways flippin me off
No **** I'm a great danger to my health
Why else would I kill you then jump in the grave and bury myself?

[Chorus Two]
{Just pull the plug!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just let it gooo!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just do it!}

[Eminem]
I'm the illest rapper to hold the cordless, patrollin corners
Looking for hookers to punch in the mouth with a roll of quarters
I'm meaner in action than Roscoe beatin James Todd Sr.
across the back with vacuum cleaner attachments {Ow! Ow! Ow!}
I grew up in a wild hood, as a hazardous youth
with a ****ed up childhood, that I used as an excuse
And ain't **** changed, I kept the same mindstate
since the third time that I failed 9th grade
You probably think that I'm a negative person, don't be so sure of it
I don't promote violence, I just encourage it {c'mon}
I laugh at the sight of death
as I fall down a cement flight of steps {ahhhhhhhh!}
and land inside a bed of spider webs
So throw caution to the wind; you and a friend
can jump off of a bridge and if you live, do it again
****, why not, blow your brain out, I'm blowin mine out
**** it, you only live once, you might as well die now!

[Chorus Three]
{Just let it gooo!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just pull the plug!}
People say that I'm a bad influence
I say the world's already ****ed, I'm just addin to it
They say I'm suicidal, teenagers' newest idol {c'mon!}
C'mon do as I do, go ahead get mad and do it
{Just do it!}

[Eminem]
My laser disc gon' make you take a razor to your wrist
Make you satanistic, make you take the pistol to your face
and place the clip and cock it back
and let it go until your brains are rippin out
your skull so bad to sew you back would be a waste of stitches
I'm not a "Role Model," I don't wanna babysit kids
I got one little girl, and Hailey Jade is Shady's business
And Shady's just an alias I made to make you pissed off
Where the **** were you when Gil was paid to make me dishwash?
I make a couple statements and now look how crazy **** got
You made me get a bigger attitude than eighty Kim Scott's
And she almost got the same fate that Grady's ***** got
I knew that "Just the Two of Us" would make you hate me this much
And "Just the Two of Us," that ain't got **** to do with us
and our personal life, it's just words on a mic
So you can call me a punk, a pervert or a chauvinist pig
But the funny **** is that I still go with the *****!

[Chorus Two]
 
Also good for a funeral service. :;): I think that Eminem song was only featured in the average Arnie flick "End of Days". Makes sense.
