Song Lyrics and Meanings
Posted 4/21/08
Freedom of Speech? Freedom of Thought?
Without even sparing a thought on the freedoms we DO have
it's "please please please"

Freedom of Blame! Freedom of Abuse!
spending money we don't have, every last penny

That's what you call freedom right?
Isn't that also freedom?
so, will you also sell that freedom?
... then, what in the world is freedom anyway?

....Isn't freedom to blame for that?
Isn't that what we need freedom for?
so, will we then buy freedom back again?
... in the end, where exactly is freedom?
You say 'freedom' this and 'freedom' that
but what's that sitting right next to you?

-Freedom Fighter by Miyavi

Some people think this is a political song to bash the U.S., but thats so wrong. What he trying to say is that people nowadays took freedom for granted to a point where they don't have freedom anymore because they are doing bad things or just plain lazy and want people do it for them.

It made me think about responsibility, respect and enjoying freedom of what you have, which is right under noses.

All smiles and sunshine
A perfect weather on a perfect day
Everything always works out
Ive never felt so fuckin great
Life isnt like this...
Life isnt like this...
Life isnt like this...

All The Love by Ulver


Haunting song with simple yet deep lyrics as well.


Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead


Great song about how fake our current society is and how far people would go in order to fit in with society. Exactly one of the reasons why I love Radiohead.

Onpu no Tegami (Letter~Music-note Letter) by Miyavi



I'm not good at piano but, I hope you'll listen,
It's only three chords, though, I hope it reaches you.

There were always, always things I never said to you,
but I'm no good at putting them into words, it's embarassing, so I put it in music-notes.

Even if my throat is torn into shreds, even if I develop a polyp,
For as long as I live, for you, I shout for you.
so, I 've decided now. I've decided.

(credit translation to Masakarasu)


simple and sincere when he first debut as solo artist.

I remember the times we spent together, all those drives
we had a million questions all about our lives
And when we got to New York everything felt right
I wish you were here with me, Tonight

I remember the days we spent together were not enough
it used to feel like dreaming except we always woke up
Never thought not having you here now would hurt so much

Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you I can just look up
And know the stars are holding you, holding you, holding you Tonight

I remember the time you told me about when you were eight
And all those things you said that night that just couldn't wait
I remember the car you were last seen in
And the games we would play
All the times we spilled our coffees and stayed out way too late

I remember the time you sat and told me about your Jesus
and how not to look back even if no one believes us

-TONIGHT, FM Static

> i used to think that this is a song for separated couples but i learned that this is a song for a dead friend. try listening to it.

A Farewell To Arms by Machine Head

Can you hear their cries?
Nowhere can the children run to hide
Crimson rivers

Flow down the hills
Atone our ills
And woe to all her songs of love

A farewell to arms

Mutilated lives
Blackening as coffin line the sides
Filled with fathers

Who has won?
When only sons
Hold their grieving heads and mourn

A farewell to arms

Always our souls entwine
Erase this vast divide
Deaf ears our voices rest
Tyrant, this is protest

Who has won?
Yes, who has won?

I’ll wave this flag of white
So the venged see the light
We’ll pay for closed eyes
With our genocide

Piercing the masquerade
March to the death parade
Trade no humanity
For pearls of the slavery

In the depth of mind the heart will I find
The truth of our leader
We’ll try the facts so through the cracks
May fall the lying cheater

Who has won when we’re all dead?

So is this how we live?
Or is this how we die?

Black blood dripping from platinum fangs
Rich blood flees while
Our poverty hangs

Shepherds they herd the mindless trance
As the flock follows the puppet’s dance
In a fatal romance

All that they needed was
A pretext, war’s next
Heads to the chopping blocks
And our necks are next
For those we died
Who fought for our rights
Whose children now slaves
They’re turning in their graves

War hawks and senators
They sit tight, so trite
Never their sons will know
What it’s like to fight
But soldiers are dead
And children have bled
And the silence is numb
What have we become?

God save us

A farewell to Arms

About civil war and how their governments send them to war while they sit back and watch.

Conquer All by Behemoth

Mightiest Self!
cast out ov Thy Elysium
with blood ov nazarene
I write the story ov man
2000 years is nothing
thought it has been enough
come forth victorious
muting the foul angelic choirs!

none ov thy empty gods, shall ever stand above me
none ov thy weak brothers, shalt ever share my blood
my awareness, catalyst, ov godhate I have spawned
in sinister ecstasy eternally I decompose

race ov man!
the errors ov a wise make The rules
ye shall see
rather than the perfection ov the fool
the most divine!
I am many! among so very few
beyond redemption, beyond the weak
thus I beheld the truth!

none ov thy empty gods, shall ever stand above me
none ov thy weak brothers, shalt ever share my blood
my awareness, catalyst, ov godhate I have spawned
in sinister ecstasy eternally I'm decomposed

I am the pure flame that burns
I am (ever shining) Sirius son
I am the infinite space
I am the most conquering One

And heres what nergal (frontman) wrote about the song
Crowley said "I will give you a war-engine. With it ye shall smite the peoples; and none shall stand before you. (...) Conquer! That is enough." and with "Conquer All" I try to extend the meaning ov these mighty words. these lyrics are about life offering me so many opportunities which are at hand. my passions and determination are unbreakable. unrestrained will has brought me to this path I walk. it's the whole world... it's the whole universe I wish to conquer. it's all or nothing. my music and words I speak are unlimited. I see no boundaries for true art. here and now. here and beyond.

I'm Charming by Black Dahlia Murder

Yeah, I'm running off the rails
I've finally gone crazy
And the ground is spinning faster
Than my teeth could ever grind

I know it's a shame
When success was to blame
But I can't remember my name

In the absolute wrong
I have made this place to lay my head
A reoccurring nightmare
I never trust, I never rest

I've become another victim
Of this self-serving device
My cock does all the talking
My mouth now just for lie

I'm winding down to nothing
It suddenly comes clear
I'm winding down to nothing
Human smoke that fills the air

What can you believe?
That is the question
I have you on a string
Something yet up my sleeve

Bury me deep,
As we have an unborn child
In this world yet cold enough
To host this seed of endless ugliness

In a sea of corruption
A wake of lie
So wildly I have stirred

I'm winding down to nothing
It suddenly comes clear
I'm winding down to nothing
A human smoke that fills the air

What can you believe?
That is the question
I have you on a string
Something yet up my sleeve

(My love is but a lie)
Always reaping what I have sown
(Taking you down with me)
To what degrees you'll never know

Its about becoming so caught up by ones lies and the desire to be famous and to conform that in the end you end up acting out even though you would never do so normally. About lying to achieve your goals only to feel empty and worthless.
