Meaningful Music

Recommended Posts

I recently started listening more closely to the lyrics of my favorite music growing up. I've been blown away with how much meaning and messaging is contained in the lyrics! It's amazing to me that people listen to this stuff without ever fully knowing what the artist is saying.

I even had an invention idea years ago for a tablet like thing to just sit in the room and display the lyrics automatically and in real-time as any song plays. This way people can become enlightened by the good stuff and perhaps stop listening to all the toxic messaging that's in most of the popular stuff.

Anyway, I'm going to build up this thread over time and post a video of the music and then the lyrics down below (one post at a time). I'll mix up artists and try to use live versions as well if they're decent (just for fun).  Please feel free to contribute as you see fit using the same format! ❤️

Incubus - Warning

Bat your eyes girl.
Be otherworldly.
Count your blessings.
Seduce a stranger.
What's so wrong with being happy?
Kudos to those who see through sickness yeah

Over and over and over and over

She woke in the morning.
She knew that her life had passed her by
She called out a warning.
Don't ever let life pass you by.

I suggest we
Learn to love ourselves,
Before its made illegal
When will we learn, When will we change
Just in time to see it all come down

Those left standing will make millions
Writing books on ways it should have been

She woke in the morning.
She knew that her life had passed her by
She called out a warning.
Don't ever let life pass you by.

Floating in this cosmic Jacuzzi
We are like frogs oblivious
To the water starting to boil,
No one flinches and we all float face down

She woke in the morning.
She knew that her life had passed her by
She called out a warning.
Don't ever let life pass you by.
Pass you by.

Muse - Uprising

The paranoia is in bloom, the P-R
Transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs
That keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on)

Another promise, another scene,
Another package lie to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick a switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Rage Against the Machine - Wake Up

Come on!
Uggh!
Come on, although ya try to discredit
Ya still never edit
The needle, I'll thread it
Radically poetic
Standin' with the fury that they had in '66
And like E-Double I'm mad
Still knee-deep in the system's shit
Hoover, he was a body remover
I'll give ya a dose
But it'll never come close
To the rage built up inside of me
Fist in the air, in the land of hypocrisy

Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak, movements cease
When their heads are flown
'Cause all these punks
Got bullets in their heads
Departments of police, the judges, the feds
Networks at work, keepin' people calm
You know they went after King
When he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

Yeah!

Yeah, back in this...
Wit' poetry, my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson, vocals never lackin' dat finesse
Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up
To shake ya up, to break the structure up
'Cause blood still flows in the gutter
I'm like takin' photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove
Then stick and move like I was Cassius
Rep the stutter step
Then bomb a left upon the fascists
Yea, the several federal men
Who pulled schemes on the dream
And put it to an end

Ya better beware
Of retribution with mind war
20/20 visions and murals with metaphors

Networks at work, keepin' people calm
Ya know they murdered X
And tried to blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

Uggh!
What was the price on his head?
What was the price on his head!

I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard, I think I heard a shot

"Black nationalism"
"He may be a real contender for this position should he abandon his supposed obedience to white liberal doctrine of non-violence...and embrace black nationalism"
"Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to pinpoint potential trouble-makers..."
"And neutralise them"


Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

"How long? Not long, 'cause what you reap is what you sow."

Tool - Ænema

Some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your Prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car

It's a
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call L.A.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay

Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves
Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits

And some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this

Stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied

Learn to swim, learn to swim, learn to swim

Mom's gonna fix it all soon
Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to be

Learn to swim

Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones
Fuck all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes

Learn to swim

Fuck retro anything
Fuck your tattoos
Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck your short memory

Learn to swim

Fuck smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas
Fuck these dysfunctional
Insecure actresses

Learn to swim

'Cause I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way
I wanna watch it all go down
Mom please flush it all away
I wanna see it go right in and down
I wanna watch it go right in
Watch you flush it all away

Time to bring it down again
Don't just call me pessimist
Try and read between the lines

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend

I wanna see it come down
Burn it down
Suck it down
Flush it down

311 - Prisoner 

Whoa oh prisoner
My pretty oh oh prisoner

A black ocean is the sky above
Tiny lights bob what star you from

Trapped in material plane
She wants to fly and they think she's insane
But she knows what she know
Give that girl wings and that's all she wrote

Twilight zone (2x)
I'm floating in the dark alone and
Is there any love out here let me know

A laser lights pinpoints the top of my dome
Then through my body
As if Scotty's beaming up a wayward soul
Mutant races in an ancient universe
Dark shadows humans rhymin' in a raggae verse

It's gone if you blink
I can see it as soon as you think it

Dancehalls crystal balls
On sidewalk malls
Psychic people outdoors reading palms

I believe that you know more
To survive the dimension if four

Oh prisoner
My pretty oh oh prisoner

Look at the way she's searching
Trapped in a world that's hurting
So bad it makes her cry
But I won't let her say good bye

Twilight zone (2x) }
I'm floating in the dark alone and } (2x)
Is there any love out here let me know }
No way (2x)

Incubus - Idiot Box

You keep your riches and I'll sew my stitches,
You can't make me think like you, mundane.
I've got a message for all those who think that
They can etch his words inside my brain
T.V., what do I need?

Tell me who to believe!
What's the use of autonomy
When a button does it all?
So listen up,
Glisten up closely all,
Who've seen the fuckin eye ache too.

It's time to step away from cable train
And when we finally see the subtle light,
This quirk in evolution will begin
To let us live and recreate
T.V., what do I need?

Tell me who to believe!
What's the use of autonomy
When a button does it all?
T.V., what should I see?
Tell me who should I be?
Lets do our mom a favor and drop
A new god off a wall.

Let me see past the fatuous knocks.
I've gotta rid myself of this idiot box!
Let you see past the feathers and flocks,
And help me plant a bomb in this idiot box!
From the depths of the sea
To the tops of the trees
To the seat of a lazy boy
Staring at a silver screen!

Rage Against the Machine - Know Your Enemy

Huh!
Yeah, we're comin' back then with another bombtrack
Think ya know what it's all about
Huh!
Hey yo, so check this out
Yeah!
Know your enemy!
Come on!

Born with insight and a raised fist
A witness to the slit wrist, that's with
As we move into '92
Still in a room without a view
Ya got to know
Ya got to know
That when I say go, go, go
Amp up and amplify
Defy
I'm a brother with a furious mind
Action must be taken
We don't need the key
We'll break in

Something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
Cause I'll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against 'em

Fist in ya face, in the place
And I'll drop the style clearly
Know your enemy...Know your enemy!
Yeah!

Hey yo, and dick with this uggh!
Word is born
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Now I got no patience
So sick of complacence
With the D the E the F the I the A the N the C the E
Mind of a revolutionary
So clear the lane
The finger to the land of the chains
What? The land of the free?
Whoever told you that is your enemy?

Now something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
Cause I'll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against 'em

Now action must be taken
We don't need the key
We'll break in

I've got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
I've got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
Sick of sick of sick of sick of you
Time has come to pay
Know your enemy!

Come on!
Yes I know my enemies
They're the teachers who taught me to fight me
Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission
Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite
All of which are American dreams

Muse - Map of the Problematique

Fear, and panic in the air
I want to be free
From desolation and despair
And I feel like everything I saw
Is being swept away
When I refuse to let you go

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over

Life will flash before my eyes
So scattered almost
I want to touch the other side
And no one thinks they are to blame
Why can't we see
That when we bleed we bleed the same

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over
Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over

Chvrches - Miracle 

Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies
Careful what you wish for
We're looking for angels in the darkest of skies
Saying that we wanted more
I feel like I'm falling, but I'm trying to fly
Where does all the good go?
We're looking for answers in the highest of highs
But will we ever, ever know?

And I need you to know I'm not asking for a miracle
But if love is enough, could you let it show?
If you feel it could you let me know?
(Oh, oh) if you feel it could you let me know?
(Oh, oh) I'm not asking for a miracle

Ask for forever when the end is in sight
Showing what you want to
We're looking for light inside an ocean of night
But will we ever see it through?

And I need you to know I'm not asking for a miracle
But if love is enough, could you let it show?
If you feel it could you let me know?
(Oh, oh) if you feel it could you let me know?
(Oh, oh) I'm not asking for a miracle

Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies
I'm not asking for a miracle
We're looking for angels in the darkest of skies
I'm not asking for a miracle (I'm not asking for a miracle)
(I'm not asking for a miracle)

I'm not asking for a miracle
If you feel it could you let me know?

Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies
I'm not asking for a miracle
We're looking for angels in the darkest of skies
I'm not asking for a miracle (I'm not asking for a miracle)

Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies
I'm not asking for a miracle
We're looking for angels in the darkest of skies
I'm not asking for a miracle (I'm not asking for a miracle)

A Perfect Circle - 3 Libras

Threw you the obvious
And you flew with it on your back
A name in your recollection
Down among a million same

Difficult not to feel a little bit
Disappointed and passed over
When I look right through
To see you naked but oblivious
And you don't see me

But I threw you the obvious
Just to see if there's more behind
The eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy

Here I am expecting
Just a little bit too much from the wounded
but I see, see through it all
See through, see you

'Cause I threw you the obvious
to see what occurs behind
the Eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy

Oh well, oh well
Apparently nothing
Apparently nothing at all

You don't, you don't, you don't see me
You don't, you don't, you don't see me
You don't, you don't, you don't see me
You don't, you don't, you don't see me
You don't see me
You don't, you don't
You don't see me at all

Muse - Knights of Cydonia 

Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you a God
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win,
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

311 - Beyond the Gray Sky

It is a gift I know
A moment of bliss that we hold
A firecracker flash of light then on
To the next plane soul remain
Come along if you dare
It's gonna be that you're scared
Lovely life I thank you
For the reason to see the pain through

Light a candle for the dead
The wick is burning returning what we have
It's who we are
We'll reach you if you're beyond the furthest star

Don't give up the fight to stay alive and even if
you have to
Find the reason of another's pain if they lose you
If not for your self then those around who care
like I do
One day you'll see the clear blue

Beyond the Gray Sky
Light a candle
The wick
It's who we are

One day you'll see the clear blue
Beyond the Gray Sky

I can't believe you didn't call
What made you want to end it all
Wasn't there something I should have tried
To help you see beyond the gray sky

System of a Down - Aerials

Life is a waterfall
We're one in the river
And one again after the fall

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves
But we find it all?

'Cause we are the ones that want to play
Always want to go
But you never want to stay

And we are the ones that want to choose
Always want to play
But you never want to lose

Aerials in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life

Life is a waterfall
We drink from the river
Then we turn around and put up our walls

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves
But we find it all?

'Cause we are the ones that want to play
Always want to go
But you never want to stay

And we are the ones that want to choose
Always want to play
But you never want to lose

Aerials in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life
Aerials so up high
When you free your eyes
Eternal prize
Aerials in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life
Aerials so up high
When you free your eyes
Eternal prize

Incubus - Nice to Know You

Better than watching Gellar
Bending silver spoons
Better than witnessing
Newborn nebulas in bloom
She who sees from up high smiles
And surely sings

Perspective pries her once
Weighty eyes and
It gives you wings
I haven't felt the way
I feel today

In so long its hard
For me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
How much this feels like
A waking limb
Pins and needles
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you

Deeper than the deepest
Coustou would ever go
Higher than the heights of what
We often think we know
Blessed she who clearly
Sees the wood for the trees
To obtain a bird's eye is to
Turn a blizzard to a breeze

I haven't felt the way
I feel today
In so long its hard
For me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
How much this feels like
A waking limb
Pins and needles
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
To know, you

Could it be that it had
Been there all along

I haven't felt the way
I feel today
In so long it's hard
For me to specify
I'm beginning to notice
How much this feels like
A waking limb
Pins and needles
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
Goodbye
Nice to know you
To know you

Tool - Forty Six & Two

Join in my
Join in my child
And listen, digging through
My old numb shadow

My shadow's shedding skin
I've been picking Scabs again
I'm down, digging through
My old muscles looking for a clue

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in
I want to feel the changes coming down
I want to know what I've been hiding

In my shadow
My shadow
Change is coming through my shadow
My shadow's
Shedding skin
I've been picking
My scabs again

Join in my
Join in my child
Shadow's
Closer to meaning

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
Insecure delusions
I wanna feel the change consume me
Feel the outside turning in
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I've endured in

My shadow
My shadow
Change is coming
Now is my time
Listen to my muscle memory
Contemplate what I've been clinging to
Forty six and two ahead of me

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through

I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through

See my shadow changing
Stretching up and over me
Soften this old armor
Hoping I can clear the way by
Stepping through my shadow
Coming out the other side
Step into the shadow
Forty six and two are just ahead of me

A Perfect Circle - Pet

Don't fret precious I'm heree
Step away from the window
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind what other voices say
They don't care about you
Like I do
Like I do
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils
See they don't give a fuck about you
Like I do

Just stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices son
One and the same I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swaying to the rhythm of the new world order and
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drum
The boogeymen are coming
The boogeymen are coming
Keep your head down go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from the other ones
The evil ones
Don't love you son
Go back to sleep

311 - Galaxy

Between Mars and Jupiter there's a gap for another planet
Now way back yeah maybe a mad man
Just blew the shit out of it
Now were tryin' to get back in alignment

Explains why we go through cycles always tryin' to find it
Closin' into the age of Aquarius crazy weather floods
Tornadoes low jet streams not gettin' better
Enterin' a twilight zone activities grown
And every single day more people spottin' UFO's

Let's come together with this new coast shit
We got the mother fuckin' kids now lets freak this shit
It's messed up if you're feeling (feeling)
Everything is wrong, we'll take over the pentagon

It's fucked up in this paradigm 'cause
I'm burning fossil fuels I don't even need to
Free energy has been harnessed
We don't use it why 'cause the techniques been suppressed

The hour glass has passed through granules that's cool
We gotta break it bust all these rules and
Switch change up the pitch
Rearrange our views and this dumb shit we'll ditch

Let's come together with this new coast shit
We got the mother fuckin' kids now lets freak this shit
It's messed up if you're feeling (feeling)
Everything is wrong, we'll fumigate the chevrons

I found a bootleg of the cosmic conscious then erased it
Visualized the breath technique slowly became it
Now something is watchin' me since I have found the keys
To free this energy my high speed light body

'Cause the galaxy is crazy it doesn't amaze me
That we're livin' out of phase and quickly decaying
6 protons, 6 neutrons, 6 electrons
Is encoded in this planet we live on

Incubus - Vitamin

I'm born
I'm alive
I breathe
In a moment or two I realize,
That the sphere upon which I reside,
Is asleep on its feet.
Should I go back to sleep?

I'm born
I'm alive
I breathe
In a moment or two I realize,
That the sphere upon which I reside,
Is asleep on its feet.
Should I go back to sleep?

You stare at me like a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you need me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow truth
All the more easily.

We orbit the sun
I grow up
My open eyes see
A zombified, somnambulist society.
Leaving us as vitamins
For the hibernating human animal.
Do you see what I mean?

You stare at me like a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you need me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow truth
All the more easily.

And I wonder, will you digest me?

Into the sleep machine I won't plug in,
In fact I'd rather die before I will comply.
To you, my friend,
I write the reason I still live,
'cause in my mind it's set the vitamin is ripe to give
Coming closer to another 2000 years
You and I will pry
The closed eye of the sleep machine

You stare at me like a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you need me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow truth
All the more easily.

Tool - Schism 

I know the pieces fit 'cause I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smoldering, fundamental differing
Pure intention juxtaposed will set two lover's souls in motion
Disintegrating as it goes testing our communication

The light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
We cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication

I know the pieces fit 'cause I watched them tumble down
No fault, none to blame, it doesn't mean I don't desire
To point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between
And the circling is worth it
Finding beauty in the dissonance

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow and strengthen our communication

(Cold, cold, cold) cold silence has
A tendency to
Atrophy any
Sense of compassion

Between supposed lovers
Between supposed lovers

I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit
I know the pieces fit

Incubus - Pardon Me

Pardon me while I burst
Pardon me while I burst

A decade ago I never thought I would be a twenty-three
On the verge of spontaneous combustion, woe is me
But I guess that it comes with the territory
An ominous landscape of never ending calamity

I need you to hear, I need you to see
That I have had all I can take
And exploding seems like a definite possibility to me

So pardon me while I burst into flames
I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me, I'll never be the same

Not two days ago I was having a look in a book
And I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knees
I said I can relate 'cause lately I've been thinking of combustication
As a welcomed vacation

From the burdens of the planet earth
Like gravity, hypocrisy and the perils of being in 3-D
But thinking so much differently

Pardon me while I burst into flames
I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me, I'll never be the same, never be the same

Pardon me while I burst into flames
Pardon me, pardon me, pardon me

So pardon me while I burst into flames
I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me, I'll never be the same
Pardon me, I'll never be the same

System of a Down - Aerials

Life is a waterfall
We're one in the river
And one again after the fall

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves but we find it all

'Cause we are the ones that wanna play
Always wanna go
But you never wanna stay

We are the ones that wanna choose
Always wanna play
But you never wanna lose

Aerials
in the sky
When you lose small mind you free your life

Life is a waterfall
We drink from the river
Then we turn around and put up our walls

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves but we find it all

'Cause we are the ones that wanna play
Always wanna go
But you never wanna stay

We are the ones that wanna choose
Always wanna play
But you never wanna lose

OH!

Aerials
in the sky
When you lose small mind you free your life

Aerials
so up high
When you free your eyes, eternal prize

Aerials
in the sky
When you lose small mind you free your life

Aerials
so up high
When you free your eyes, eternal prize.
