I figured it was about time to get a centralized lyric/song meaning discussion thread going. Obviously the easiest way to do that would be to have the lyrics easily accessible rather than scattered around the forum here and there.

I do enjoy the themes of existentialism in Things Thta Hide Away, the green lyrics seem to be very thoughtful.

White = death?

I've been getting a death vibe from White as well. More of an... acceptance of death though. While each song pretty much references death in a very blunt way, I think a better way to look at it is White = Peace.

I also added the lyrics to No God, which Kari typed up months ago.

I take black to revolve around human nature. How the greedy has overtaken control of civilization as well as running it. This Body always speaks highly to me with my faith as many times in the bible it's spoken that our body is a temple & a vessel. So many times in life, our body seems to promote only hell. Our desires control us to the point of being enslaved by every part of them. It's then that you feel that your body is a prison instead of the temple it's supposed to be. My thoughts so far.

Right. I think of "My body's not a temple it's a prison" to mean that we are often controlled by our bodies, whether it be our self images or our limits. It's often what stops us from being able to do what we truly want to do. Our bodies can feel like a burden most of the time.

Something like that.

Awesome!

But I think Fall & Flee is actually:

Our hopes will tend to fall and flee, awry

And the last chorus of Filth & Squalor:

As soon as they learned to breed (instead of breathe)

I think the solo at the end of But Theres Wolves? is a zeppelin tribute if i've ever heard one. I had my ipod on shuffle and that song came on and i didnt start to pay attention till the solo and i literally thought i was listening to Page, then i looked at my ipod and it was TDH Posted Image

I was thinking... possible Lake and the Wiki? See JoCopedia, but probably not as in depth.

I hope to set an example. You know, for children and stuff.

As long as we don't spread ourselves too thinly. But a wiki would be low-maintenance, I'd think.

Basically, I agree that it is a good idea to share some of our LATR wealth with non-forum types.

Crow and Cackle

The crow and cackle
of persistent innocence
Elated in arguing
I'm empty and wondering

If you're only saying what I wanted you to say
Cause you're only saying what I wanted you to say

So i'll just wait until our time
slips through the cracks
falls to the ground shattered
and I'll just keep
waiting for something
to improve
something to move ahead

Cause i'm only saying what you wanted me to say

The slow and steady sound
of silence hunts us down
I'm empty and wondering
What you sent me
What you're offering

Cause you're only saying what I wanted you to say
Yeah, you're only saying what I wanted you to say


So i'll just wait until our time
slips through the cracks
falls to the ground shattered
and I'll just keep
waiting for something
to improve
someone to move ahead

OoooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOooooooo


So i'll just wait until our time
slips through the cracks
falls to the ground shattered
and I'll just keep
waiting for something
to improve
something to move ahead

Cause I'm only saying what you wanted me to say.
This body's not a temple it's a prison
