  4. this thread is kind of old, but I have to say that I'm impressed! there are some argentinian fans around here Razzer

    I'm still dreaming with the day in which Regina comes to Argentina to give a concert...

    Note: My english sucks Smiler ... oh wait, I've already said that sometime Razzer


  5. yes, I've read those interpretations too...

    I think this song is about Jesus Christ.

    He is potentially lovely

    he is perpetually human

    for the "suspended and open" part, made me think of the crucifixion.

    and "4 straight walls, one floor, one ceiling" part made me think of the holy sepulchre...

    however, some parts of the lyrics don't make sense in this context... (for example, the trains part Razzer) Eeker

    The performance was delayed until next monday!

    and yes, I will ask someone to record it, don't worry haha Razzer


  7. okey, I'm kinda obsessed with this song right now! Smiler these are the lyrics:

    I am

    Down the road and up the hill

    I wait for you still

    Wires around my fingers

    Potentially lovely

    Perpetually human

    Suspended and open

    Open

    Open

    I am

    Through the woods and past the trains

    I wait here in vain

    Scrubbing out the stains again

    Potentially lovely

    Perpetually human

    Suspended and open

    Open

    Open

    In a night, the snow starts falling

    And everybody stares

    Through their windows at the streetlights

    Too beautiful to see

    I (ough) am (ough)

    In a room I've built myself (ough)

    Four (ough) straight walls (ough)

    One floor (ough)

    One ceiling

    And day after day, I wake up feeling

    day after day, I wake up feeling

    feeling...

    Potentially lovely

    Perpetually human

    Suspended and open

    Open

    Open

    Open

    Open up

    Your eyes

    And then...

    mmm, lalala

    lalala, mmm...

    Okay, this song is beautiful, any ideas of the meaning?

  9. Hello from the pampas! I'm argentine too, It's kind of weird to write in english to another spanish-speaker ahahaha...

    (mientras tanto, ruego a dios y a quien sea a ver si Regina algun dia pisa estas tierras Razzer )


  10. I think "december" is a song about a couple.

    but not any ordinary couple. they are living in the pre-second world war years, (in Germany maybe?)

    I think she is a Jew, and he is not, but that doesn't matter, because they are living in peace... until now...

    then, the second world war begins, and that's when she says "Rumours have started that you are in love again, rumours that are completely unsubstantiated"... He is "in love" with the nazi ideology, He is called to enlist in the german army forces.

    she now sees He has changed, he's not the same guy she used to love.

    finally, the time has come, and the nazis are sending all the jews to the concentration camps.

    The man who used to be her boyfriend comes to her house with all the "crew", ingoring that She used to be his girlfriend.

    She desesperately says to him "can't you see all this love?". And referrencing to the nacional socialism, she says "come on and say you're sorry for all the trouble that you caused", she knows that jews are being discriminated, and death is around the corner...

    the line "we're not evacuating this house" is pretty obvious in this context, the girl and her family don't want to leave... She doesn't believe in him anymore now he is with the "wrecking crew".

    I wonder what appened next, I'm sure the nazis send them to the concentration camp, and the poor girl and her family died...

    What a sad sad sad song... That guy was really mean with his girlfriend Razzer


  11. I always tought that all the samson thing is a metaphor of a love relationship.

    The guy (samson) will let his defenses down ("I cut his hair... and he told me that I've done alright...)"), just to love the girl.

    all the other things are easily applicable to this context:

    "you are my sweetest downfall": He is irresistible, very lovely, etc-

    "and the history books forget about us and the bible didn't mention us not even once": It isn't necessary for the couple that other persons know they are in love. It's just him and her, don't matter what others may think...

    "we couln't bring the columns down": in the myth, samson dies crushed by the columns. in this verse, she is implying that the guy is still open to her, "his hair hasn't grow" Razzer

    lol, reading it now it doesn't make so much sense :s


  12. this song always confuses me

    I think there are 3 POVs in this song:

    a teen boy

    a hooker

    the boy's girlfriend

    these are the boy's lines:

    I have dreams of Orca whales and owls

    But I wake up in fear

    You will never be my fool

    Will never be my fool

    Floaters in my eyes

    Wake up in a hotel room

    Cigarettes and lies

    I am a child, it's too soon

    I wade downstairs

    The porter smiles to me

    A smile I've bought

    With a couple of gold coins

    A sign that I've been caught

    These are the hooker lines:

    Come in, come in

    Come into my world

    I've got to show, show, show you

    Come into my bed

    I've got to know, know, know you

    You will never be my dear

    Will never be my dear, dear friend

    and these are the girlfriend lines:

    A little bag of cocaine

    A little bag of cocaine

    So who's the girl wearing my dress?

    I figured out her number

    It's on a paper napkin

    But I don't know her address

    So, the main idea is:

    the boy and his gf are staying in a hotel. They are too young and never have spoken about sex. Maybe he tries to convince her to have sex with him, and she doesn't want to, so he leaves in an angry mood.

    Then, the boy calls a hooker. The hooker comes, and that's when the song begins.

    He has sex with the hooker, have fun with cocaine, etc., and when they finish, she says "you will never be my friend", implying that hookers never have sentimental relationships. And then she leaves wearing a dress of the girlfriend (I wonder why, lol).

    He feels guilty then (he realizes he is still a child, has dreams of orcas and owls... It was so soon...). So he tries to leave the hotel, and meets the porter. he tries to bribe him to keep quiet. in the meantime, the girlfriend come back to the hotel and she meets with the hooker, who is leaving, and is wearing her dress. Quickly she goes upstairs and confronts the boy. They go back to the room, and she found the cocaine, the phone number and realizes he had sex with a hooker. Angrily she realizes the girl with her dress was, in fact, the hooker, so maybe she wants to punch her in the face... but she doesn't know her adress!

    I assume the girlfriend and the boy broke up after this incident Razzer

    I'm Sorry, I got carried away... I can't control my creativity! Lol Razzer


  13. this is totally off, but I think this song is from the POV of someone in the World War I.

    Mata hari was killed in WWI...

    and this person says he's got an "invitation".

    "the invitation" means that he's called for doing the work of "shovel up the mess". I think "the mess" means all the dead bodies of the people who died in the war, that are scattered around the city. His work is "to shovel up the mess", and maybe clean the city of all the dead bodies.

    then he says he dug a hole, and dropped some dead animals too, and even his dead grandma...

    Lol, I know this is totally off... but I think this song has some serious meaning, despite the "happy feel" towards the end...


  14. back of a truck. a lot of mistakes Razzer

    this is what I (mis)heard for a LONG LONG TIME... MISHEARD LYRICS IN bold. have fun: Razzer

    She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

    she was the mother superior with her carry on luggage charms

    she was this androgynous paranoid girl next door

    she had eaten her dog and she was back for more

    her self teacher taught himself a sweet-sour baby-got

    and her geraniums thought themselves an alien pod

    her front porch get wet beneath her classified weight

    and when an ambulance came they said it's much too late

    oh it's much too late

    They're late, they're late too late

    now the people of new guinea and the people of LA

    have been pen pals for years cause they both hate ballet

    All this on purpose and birds who made a clean getaway

    but the news wanna to play it's just gonna be ok

    now miss lucy had a sweatshop where the immigrants squared

    Promptly worked us into pumpkins when the 12 o'clock stroke

    promptly in campus were all beliefs, were raisin' in the rain

    that's when the alien geraniums sueded no violence

    no violence of course

    here the story gets hazy and the hair gets too long

    the TV gets quiet it's a real, real bad song

    the mothers get whisky and the girlfriends get thong

    and there's a, a back of a truck selling smoke-filled lungs

    and there's a, a back of a truck selling alien pods

    and there's a, a back of a truck selling Gatorade hoods

    and there's a, a back of a truck selling the souls of the dead

    and there's a back of a truck selling no regrets

    THIS IS NEW YORK!

    now there's a back of a truck selling the back of a car

    and there's a back of a car selling Roadie maps

    and there are Roadie maps selling the back of a head

    hey how much for that back of a head man?

    hey wait a minute, that's my back of a head

    Hey you can't sell that man, that's my back of a head

    Hey sell it back to me man

    Hey sell it back to me

    It's mine, mah, mah mah mah mah mah maaaaaa-- oh

    She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

    she was the mother superior with her carry on luggage charms

    she was this androgynous paranoid girl next door

    she had eaten her dog and she was back for more

    she had eaten her dowg, d-o-w-g

    she had, eaten her dowg d-dowg-d-dowg

    she had eaten had eaten eaten had eaten her... uh

    oh uh uh, oh lalala oh, uh, oh oh

    some more, yes please some more

    some more, yes pleeaaaaaaaaaase... some... more...
