The song's lyrics are in the form of a letter a soldier has written in case he . Though Ray Price first met Kris Kristofferson when the latter was a . But while headlines screamed of "bear markets" and "economic indexes," Haggard's song got right to the heart of the Alan Jackson Saddest Country Songs. Allen was soon replaced by Laszlo Khaninghinis, and the band recorded two demos in - Sorting of Misery Index is an American death metal band formed in in Baltimore, Maryland, United Its lyrics tend to be highly critical of prevailing power structures in modern culture, everyday life "Meet Reality" 6. 2 Lyrics. John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (); Imagine ( album); Mind Reality leaves a lot to the imagination. Later comments on meeting Elvis, as quoted in The Beatles: The Biography () by Bob Spitz, p.

The verses sometimes less so: If you won't make out with a bi-plane No! Perchance a dance with a carcass in space? But now you gotta buy me some antlers Antlers are what I need you to buy Why? Then send me down to the postman You do it! Tell the postman to throw me to They basically played along to a backwards recording of their song "Waterfall", then wrote new lyrics based on mondegreens of the backwards vocals. The "One Week" example is lampshaded in "Testing 1,2,3" off the following album The music video is more obvious about it, highlighting the next pointwhich is a Take That!
As their name implies, a lot of their songs are based on dreams or intended to feel dreamlike, so its sort of inevitable that this happens. Guitarist Peter Buck said once that Michael Stipe did this intentionally at times: And some of its not there to get. Certain bits are just words that sounded good strung together. All of the guests were people with the initials L.
And then the world ended. The name is also a Southernism for "losing my temper", which helps explain a lot but isn't immediately obvious.
And then some have a meaning only known to them: Charades, pop skill, Water hyacinth, Named by a poet, Imitation of life Like a coin in a frozen pond, Like a goldfish in a bowl, I don't want to hear you cry That sugarcane that tasted good, That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood, Come on, come on, No one can see you try Brazilian band Engenheiros do Hawaii uses a lot of these, though none of them flying as fast as one would expect from some cases seen in this trope.
Here's a translation of thisjust for reference: Between a face and a portrait, the real and the abstract, between madness and lucidity, between a uniform and nudity Between the end of the world and the end of the month, between the truth and the English rock, between the others and you I feel like a foreigner, passenger of some train, that doesn't go around here, that is nothing but illusion The Presidents of the United States of America do this often, usually for comedic purposes.
On example, "Twig," starts like this: Most of Queen 's songs, such as "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Another One Bites The Dust" although the latter does have the underlying thread of street gangs. Which was, of course, parodied by Yankovictoo. A particularly glorious example is "On a Plain": Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory has stored As a defense I'm neutered and spayed While there might be a meaning behind it, Alanis Morissette 's "Thank U" has verses that qualify in this trope: How 'bout gettin' off of these antibiotics?
How 'bout stoppin' eatin' when I'm full up? How 'bout them transparent danglin' carrots? How 'bout that ever-elusive kudo? Parodied in the cover version by Steven Wilson which changes the most non-sensical line "How about them dangling carrots? This is, perhaps, excusable, as Thom Yorke was notoriously obsessed with Dadaism during this period and wrote the lyrics to some of the songs on Kid A following Tristan Tzara's instructions for writing a Dada poem.
Lyrical Shoehorn plays enough of a role in their songwriting period that this features on all of their albums, to some degree. Shaun Ryder, the lead singer of Happy Mondays, is known for writing incomprehensible drug-induced stream-of-consciousness lyrics. For instance, "Kelly's Heroes" seems like a cynical look at how celebrities are worshiped as heroes, but who knows where "Jesus was a black man, Jesus was Batmanno that was Bruce Wayne!
The Manic Street Preachers are another example. Not only have they mashed together various words into lyrics "Cos reality for TV is Disney not King, Rodney" in Dead Yankee Drawl for an early examplebut they have also included references to people and concepts not immediately accessible to the listener, leading to an unofficial website that tries to decipher most of the references.
This may also be an example of Listeners Are Geniuses. While many of Nicky Wire's lyrics are just plain incomprehensible, Richey Edward's songs do have meanings They're just composed of insanely obscure and complicated references.
Beauty and the Beast (Disney song)
Many Soul Coughing songs seem to just consist of cool-sounding nonsense. Which may possibly be explained due to the lyricist's fondness for I'll scratch you raw, l'etat c'est moi I drink the drink and I'm wall to wall I absorb trust like a love rhombus I feel I must elucidate I ate the chump with guile Quadrilateral I was, now I warp like a smile The verses of "Casiotone Nation" consist of variants of "the five percent nation of arbitrary noun " or "The People's Republic of arbitrary noun ", which the band would change every time it was played live.
The refrain from "Down to This", which was assembled due to Doughty being a little hyper and repeating various other Ear Worm phrases while working the door at a local club.

Heartbreak: part two of songs everyone must hear | Music | The Observer
Hunger allows no choice To the citizen or the police; We must love one another or die. AudenSeptember 1, Lines ; for a anthology text the poet changed this line to "We must love one another and die" to avoid what he regarded as a falsehood in the original.
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: Love, and do what thou wilt: Love and then what you will, do. What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like. What sort of shape does it have? What sort of height does it have? What sort of feet does it have? What sort of hands does it have?
No one can say. Yet it has feet, for they lead to the Church. It has hands, for they stretch out to the poor person. It has eyes, for that is how he is in need is understood: Blessed, it says, is he who understands. Boniface Ramsey, Works of St. New City Press,Homily 7, Para 10, p. Quantum in te crescit amor, tantum crescit pulchritudo; quia ipsa charitas est animae pulchritudo.
It takes time to get rid of all this garbage that I've been carrying around that was influencing the way I thought and the way I lived. It had a lot to do with Yokoshowing me that I was still possessed. I left physically when I fell in love with Yoko, but mentally it took the last ten years of struggling. I learned everything from her. That's what people don't understand.
She's the teacher and I'm the pupil. She's my Don Juan … a Don Juan doesn't have a following. A Don Juan isn't in the newspaper and doesn't have disciples and doesn't proselytize. Well, that's rubbish, you know.
The only one who controls me is me, and that's just barely possible. On whether he's under Yoko's spell, under her control We never made love in a bag. People probably imagined that we were making love. It was just, all of us are in a bag, you know. The point was the outline of the bag, you know, the movement of the bag, how much we see of a person, you know.
But, inside, there might be a lot going on. Or maybe nothing's going on. It's better to fade away like an old soldier than to burn out. It's the same thing. Making Sid Vicious a hero, Jim Morrison — it's garbage to me. I worship the people who survive. Gloria SwansonGreta Garbo. I go to restaurants and the groups always play " Yesterday.
That's another piece of garbage. What the hell's it based on? We couldn't've come from anything--fish, maybe, but not monkeys. I don't believe in the evolution of fish to monkeys to men.
Why aren't monkeys changing into men now? It's absolutely irrational garbage, as mad as the ones who believe the world was made only four thousand years ago, the fundamentalists. That and the monkey thing are both as insane as the other.
They always draw that progression-these apes standing up suddenly. The early men are always drawn like apes, right? Because that fits in the theory we have been living with since Darwin. I don't buy that monkey business. I've got no basis for it and no theory to offer, I just don't buy it. Something other than that. I don't buy I've got no basis for it and no theory to offer, I just don't buy it.
I don't buy anything other than "It always was and ever shall be. The other theories change all the time. They set up these idols and then they knock them down.
It keeps all the old professors happy in the university.

It gives them something to do. I don't know if there's any harm in it except they ram it down everybody's throat. Everything they told me as a kid has already been disproved by the same type of "experts" who made them up in the first place.

But it occurred to me that karma is instant as well as it influences your past life or your future life. There really is a reaction to what you do now. That's what people ought to be concerned about. Also, I'm fascinated by commercials and promotion as an art form.
