Ever encounter any songs that have the most senseless lyrics that don't seem to really do anything at all?


Was browsing through my old cassette collection from when I was like, 5. Forgot I used to like these guys:



If you don't know who they were, let's just say they were like an early incarnation of the Jonas Brothers, but actually had talent. Musically, at least (particularly the pianist for his age).


But there's something about that song's lyrics that just....

Read for yourself:

It's getting colder in this ditch where I lie
I'm feeling older and I'm wondering why
Well I heard they told her it was tell and live or die
I didn't know her but I know why she lied
I didn't know her but I know why she died

Chorus:
You can't say
I didn't give it, I won't wait
Another minute on our way
This time around
You can't say
I didn't give it, I won't wait
Another minute on our way
This time around

And we won't go down

I heard them say that dreams should stay in your head
Well I feel ashamed of the things that I've said
Put on these chains and you can live a free life
Well I'd rather bleed just to know why I die

Chorus

And we won't go down
And we won't go down
And we won't go down
And we won't go down

All I know is that fear has got to go
This time around

I've started feeling like I don't want to fight
Give in to the given and put out the light
Cannons a blazing shower these moonlit skies
Then I remember and I know why he died
Do you know why I die

Chorus 2x

And we won't go down
And we won't go down
And we won't go down



It's like, WTF? Did they just throw together some random lyrics that sounded cool when sung with a rock style? It's more senseless than a song I lyrically improvised when I was stoned out of my mind one time.

drudkh - furrows of gods

І засміялась провесінь: - Пора! -
за Чорним Шляхом, за Великим Лугом -
дивлюсь: мій прадід, і пра-пра, пра-пра -
усі ідуть за часом, як за плугом.

За ланом лан, за ланом лан і лан,
за Чорним Шляхом, за Великим Лугом,
вони уже в тумані - як туман -
усі вже йдуть за часом, як за плугом.

Яка важка у вічності хода! -
за Чорним Шляхом, за Великим Лугом.
Така свавільна, вільна, молода -
невже і я іду вже, як за плугом?!

І що зорю? Який засію лан?
За Чорним Шляхом, за Великим Лугом.
Невже і я в тумані - як туман -
і я вже йду за часом, як за плугом?..

i mean what the hell

Well they are some songs which mean exactly nothing, like what does the fox say... Yet some lyrics may sound meaningless but it can be meaningful to artist. I dont know. Thats what I chose to believe atleast. Still human stupidity is endless

They might make sense, but still meaningless:


I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the colour of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die
da ba dee da ba die....


Ah, the 90s.

"By The Way"

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl is
Singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee
Overload

Steak knife
Card shark
Con job
Boot cut

Skin that flick
She's such a little DJ
Get there quick
By street but not the freeway
Turn that trick
To make a little leeway
Beat that mic
But not the way that we play

Dogtown
Blood bath
Rib cage
Soft tail

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

Black jack
Dope dick
Pawn shop
Quick pick

Kiss that dyke
I know you want to hold one
Not on strike
But I'm about to bowl one
Bite that mic
I know you never stole one
Girls that like
A story, so I told one

Song bird
Main line
Cash back
Hard top

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl is
Singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee
Of her soul
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee
Of her soul
By the way I tried to say
I know you
From before

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

"Scar Tissue"

Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you 'cause
With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view

Push me up against the wall
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra
Fallin' all over myself
To lick your heart and taste your health 'cause
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Blood loss in a bathroom stall
Southern girl with a scarlet drawl
Wave good-bye to ma and pa 'cause
With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view

Soft spoken with a broken jaw
Step outside but not to brawl
Autumn's sweet we call it fall
I'll make it to the moon if I have to crawl and
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you 'cause
With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Aesop Rock 'None Shall Pass':


Flash that buttery gold, jittery zeitgeist
Wither by the watering hole, Border patrol
What are we to Heart Huckabee
Art ****ery suddenly
Not enough young in his lung for the water wings
Colorfully vulgar poacher, out of mulch
Like I'm a pull the pulse out a soldier and bolt
Fine, sign of the time we elapse
When a primate climb up a spine and attach
Eye for an eye, by the bog life swamps and vines
They get a rise out of frogs and flies
So when a dogfight's hog-tied prize sort of costs a life
The mouths water on a fork and knife
And the allure isn't right
No score on a war-torn beach
Where the cash cow's actually beef
Blood turns wine when it leak for police
Like that's not a riot it's a feast, let's eat

Beck

"Loser"

In the time of chimpanzees
I was a monkey
Butane in my veins
So I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs,
Spray-paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights
And put it in neutral
Stock car flaming' with a loser
And the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches,
Sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps saying'
I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding
And a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation
And a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face
With some mace in the dark
Saving' all your food stamps
And burning' down the trailer park

(Yo. Cut it.)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

(Double-barrel buckshot)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
Banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
'Cuz one's got a weasel
And the other's got a flag
One's on the pole, shove the other in a bag
With the rerun shows
And the cocaine nose-job
The daytime crap of the folksinger slop
He hung himself with a guitar string
Slap the turkey-neck
And it's hanging' from a pigeon wing
You can't write if you can't relate
Trade the cash for the beef
For the body for the hate
And my time is a piece of wax
Falling' on a termite
Who's choking' on the splinters
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Get crazy with the cheeze whiz)
Soy un perdedor*
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Drive-by body-pierce)
(Yo, bring it on down)
Soooooooyy....
[Chorus backwards]
(I'm a driver; I'm the winner;
Things are gonna change
I can feel it)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(I can't believe you)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
[Repeat]
(Sprechen sie Deutsch, baby?)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Know what I'm saying'?)

yeah but it's such a tune. I love the way he says the last line. And the first line.
You should've quoted the whole song though, cause none of it really makes sense but such a tune

How can you not understand what that song is about?

It's made up of several songs tied together, kind of like how Bohemian Rhapsody is, but the story behind every part of Octavarium makes sense when provided with its context.

Anything the guy from Pearl Jam sings
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

"Put the man on the stand

A sentence to end him
The word became cold flesh on a noose
The gallows his picture frame

I'll talk to god about the souls I've pulled out
Run my fingers through their hair

Tyrants of meaning
Monopolies of beauty
"Even flowers are black at night"

I'll make my morals from the bottom up
Sweet depravity my god
My only power not in a word

He smiled all the way down
The punch line silenced
Read his scars like a psalm
"

Mostly the bolded part

Still love the song though. Dat riff, dat falsetto in the second verse

To be fair, most RHCP songs seem to just be a cluster**** of funky sounding phrases thrown together without any meaning, other than they sound good over funky music.

I will now wait for everybody to tell me how their lyrics all make sense and how John is the greatest guitar player ever.

Couldnt agree more that some of their songs definitely are shaped around the sounds of the words. This guy posting Scar Tissue is out of his element though.
