Portugal. The Man – Head Is A Flame lyrics

I was born without a name
A soldier for
The streets they say
This kid's on a mission
Running high on fame of the guillotine
No roots to find and no one to miss him

My head is like a flame

Well we all get strange
And we know it
But we're cool with it
And we all get a little bit older
In this day and age
But we deal with it

Shaking with a fire burning deep inside
Still the politicians they never listen
Blood money was a sound
I didn't care to hear
Of which the politicians they only listen

My head is like a flame
And my eyes were red

Well we all get strange
And we know it
But we're cool with it
And we all get a little bit older
In this day and age
But we deal with it

My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up
My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up

I became a child of the universe
Reborn into this galactic prism

My head was like a flame
Ah, my eyes were red

Well we all get strange
And we know it
But we're cool with it
And we all get a little bit older
In this day and age
But we deal with it

My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up
My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up

My head was like a flame
My head was like a flame
My head was like a flame
My head was like a flame

    This album is my bible.

    My interpretation is we all conform and start to believe in these f**ked up things we never thought we'd believe in. We lose sight of the bigger picture and instead focus on the bullshit that doesn't add up to life in anyway. Rank, wealth, power, possession, power. We don't know any better though because we forget (or no longer care) about what we originally thought. "We're cool with it" because we don't realize or remember there ever being an alternative. The things that really matter fall by the wayside as we're thrown into society. We end up conforming to the point that we become just like the group that created what we are. Thus the cycle continues. We will trap more people and on and on.

    "I became a child of the universe.
    Reborn into this galactic prism".

    But this person now understands the true importance of life. By saying prism he recognizes the intricacies of life. He realizes that there's more to life than what he's been told. Accordingly, he's been "reborn" because he now understands what really matters. He no longer has the fog of society clouding his vision.
