I have a son with mental illness and to me this song sums up what it does to a family. So to me this would be sung from the perspective of my son. He knows he does wrong. He is constantly apologizing. We go through hell. He knows he IS unsteady but he also knows he needs us. We do feel alone because his issues make friendships hard and they affect the relationship between me and my husband. I know there are other meanings but this is what it means to me and it breaks my heart. Whenever I am so mad at him for the things he does I think of him begging for us to not let (him) go. Making it more sad is the progression of time with it starting out calling the parents mama/daddy and then mother/dad, showing nothing has changed over time. Read more →

This can be taken in many ways. I took it like this: The narrator does not know what he is in life, hence the "I follow the road, blind, until the road is dead end," "Dead end" meaning he draws a blank to his ideas. He thinks some laws are just meant to "herd us over the cliff," or are harmful instead of helpful. He wants to know "what puzzle peice fell out" of him, meaning he wants to know where it all went wrong. He has friends that are "dead ends," and he is reluctant to join them in their mischief. He "aches for the touch" of them, meaning he wants them to be back to normal, away from trouble. He slowly realizes that he is just like them, a dead end, becuase of a "look in your eyes." It is unclear who this "your" is, possibly one of the friends, or a girlfriend, as he says "hold me real close then do it again," meaning they might have had sex. He states that he is becoming a dead end in the following line: "I can tell, by that look in your eyes. We're the same, my dead end friends and I." He then starts accepting the fact that he has become a dead end when he states: "We drive all alone at night, A never ending begin. Sweet as a curse just out of reach, Awakens the dead end part of me and oh, No more wandering. Just me and my dead end friends again." He knows that he has become a dead end and accepts it. He knows he WANTS to be a dead end when he says "No more wandering." He has accepted it and loves being with his friends again, even if they break some laws doing it. In all, this song is about a man who wants to find out who he really is. He finally finds it when he joins his friends in mischief. Read more →

My favorite song by Turisas, and one of my favorites of all time. It may be sometimes overlooked because of its length, but it deserves as much recognition as possible, The song tells the story of the fall of the Byzantine Empire, and expands upon this to work on the definition of history itself. The stars and moon, feared by the singer, are common Islamic symbols, and refer to the overthrow of the Byzantine Empire by the nascent Ottoman Empire, a "new power on the rise." The "walls" referred to as falling are the Theodosian Walls, which protected Constantinople for 1000 years before falling to the Ottomans. Personally, my favorite lyric in this song is "As long as you spend / There is more for you to lend / Someone always saves us in the end." This represents to me the fiscal disaster that the Empire became during the last few emperors after the Sack of Constantinople in 1204, and the apathy that they sank into. As a student of history, this apathy is familiar as that of the Western Roman Empire, Venice, and numerous other once-great powers that were either abandoned by their allies or simply pummeled to a pulp, and at the end simply resigned themselves to their fate. Other lyrics throughout the song express disbelief at the fact that the Empire has fallen, and that their time "ended so fast"--in fact, the Ultimus Romanorum was the last vestige of one of the longest-lived empires in history, and its fall showed that everything must end. The final choruses, soaring and majestic, are incredibly powerful as the last gasp of a dying empire, and the silence that follows them carries enormous symbolism. The End of an Empire is a tragic, majestic thing, and I think Turisas has done an amazing job conveying this in their song. Read more →

This song talks about what a woman is feeling when she's too deeply in love with someone ("Je m'abîme d'être moi-même - "I damage myself to be myself"). She wants to have a new start before the wind tears her and her feelings apart, not wanting to show how she suffers. She wants to leave the world she's living in to reach a better place, knowing what the others literally see in her eyes. In the 2 verses, Mylene sings it all, and the very dynamic chorus is very interesting too. In my opinion, this song is one of her musically best successes, along with "Stolen Car" and "City of Love".

I think it's less likely to be about love. Dan Reynolds grew up with a lot of dark turns in his life, hence Radioactive being about his overcoming of anxiety and depression. This song is possibly telling about the following:. He is talking about his depression, his sorrow, and his life. And about cutting. "I'll bleed out for you" is not talking about a woman, or a man for that matter. It's him saying to himself "I suck, I'll cut and watch the blood escape for all of you that hate me, because you're right." When he says "So I bear my skin, and I count my sins, and I close my eyes, and I take it in" I think it means "I 'bear my skin' (he's getting his wrist out so he can cut it), I tell myself everything that's wrong with me (counting my sins) I close my eyes, take a breath, and slice my wrist, taking in the pain that I deserve." I don't think this song is a girl, it's him. He is bullying himself because others are and he believes it. This is a song about cutting, depression, suicide, and self-hate. Bet that's not what you thought. But that's the kind of band Imagine Dragons is, because some people have crap in their life and not everyone writes songs about love, drugs, murder, and the nasty, unlike all modern singers on the radio (okay, not all modern singers, because: Shindedown, Simple Plan, Fall Out Boy, Avicii, etc. They're still modern, but not enjoyed by the majority because they're unique singers that don't just sing about breakups.).

I think the song is about someone preparing to leave a narcissistic and abusive partner. The first verse suggests that the partner is unstable - a Jekyll and Hyde character. The singer has started to prefer to be away from his partner as much as possible to escape their abuse. Slipping through somebody's fingers refers to the singer detaching emotionally from his partner due to the abuse. Falling under someone's wheels describes the feeling of being crushed repeatedly by his partner's rages. The chorus is the singer waking up to his predicament and persuading himself that leaving is the right thing to do. The second verse suggests the singer's partner has strangely shallow feelings of attachment - no ability to have fond memories of anyone or anything. It is this and the partner's unstable character that indicate that the partner is a narcissist. The singer then tells their partner that they've had enough, that they are not going to continue being trapped by their infatuation in this abusive relationship. The repetition in the chorus is the singer convincing himself repeatedly to stay strong and leave in spite of his misgivings because walking away is painful, but ultimately less painful than staying.

I'm not positive, but what this song means to me is that basically he is telling a story of how him and his lover never really knew each other and how glad he is that they found each other. His love grows and branches out like meridians, which breach through our body. He wants to talk about a good future with this lover and how their love is so close and entertained. He says how much he really likes this person and spending time with this lover. He wants to talk about their lives together now and journey through an amazing love with this person. He has found his new home in this lover and is passionate about their future plans. Read more →

"
I want it all mmm mmm
Clearly this is a metaphor for the insatiable appetite of the human race. Greed runs rampant among humans, and they constantly seek more than they have, unable to be satisfied by anything. The narrator sings of the infinite desires of humans, and how she will not be content until she has it all. Then she eats something delicious, resulting in a "mmm" sound. Clearly this further elaboration upon the earlier mentioned, where the narrator is "feasting" upon the objects of her desire. Read more →

The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France
Martyrs means a person who is killed because of their religious or other beliefs but the way it is said makes it sound like they are on about the monarchy and how their blood will water the meadows when the revolutionaries kill them.

It could however refer to the students who are killed will become martyrs but watering the meadows of France with there blood would mean that the blood would be loss and often anything related to a martyr is usually kept.

In this song, I think Amy Lee is talking about a kind of rebirth. She had went through some very trying times, but, even it's not completely finish, she's hoping again, living again, believing again in the life through the person she loves, this person who bring her to life. The secret door that she's talking about is the door of her new life. She's getting one last look behind her. Tears still shine on her cheeks, but they are no more tears of pain but melancholy's tears ("Don't fight my tears cause they feels so good"). She's totally lost in her broken life ("To lost to lose"), but she trusts in the person she loves who is reconstructing her ("Feed the fire till my soul breathes free"). Her words are optimistic, she's passing this secret door with her love ("Follow my love through the same secret door"), she's hoping that she will be happy again ("I will remember how to fly").

AC/DC – Back In Black

Meaning
"Back in Black" very simply is a tribute to the late AC/DC vocalist Ronald "Bon" Scott, who died in early 1980 due to pulmonary aspiration. Bon had been working on ideas for the album but he never put any lyrics to the music that the Young brothers had composed. When Bon does, all ideas for the album were tossed and they started fresh. The phrase "Back in Black" represents the band's return from a very dark time. The song is NOT about financial trouble, NOT about a black t-shirt (I'm sorry but that idea is ludicrous), and Bon did NOT write the song (again, who would write a tribute for themselves?) The lyrics that say "I got nine lives, cats eyes, abusing everyone of them and running wild" is a reference to Bon. He was the life of the party, he drank non stop, and he recovered from many of his incidents, hence the meaning of abusing his nine lives. The album cover, black as a memorial, so to speak, to Bon. The Youngs gave told Brian to write whatever came to mind, and the result was the ultimate tribute to the rocker, roller, problem child, vocalist Bon Scott. Many of the other songs are tribute too, the ringing, ominous Hells Bell that opens the album and the song "Have a Drink On Me" and of course "Back in Black" Don't let anyone tell you different about the meaning of this song... believe me, I'm and AC/DC fan of the highest degree. Hope someone is satisfied in knowing that this is the true meaning of the song. Read more →
