Songs with Lyrics that make no sense but everyone swears they make sense

Does anyone else have this problem?... I got a Buddy who's a HUGE shinedown fan and this new song "Outcast" they have makes no sense to me lyric wise... is it just me? do you guys run into this kinda thing? i'm not knocking it... its sounds good... i just tear lyrics apart in my head...

P.S. i'll just throw the lyrics to the first verse down here so you can see what i mean... its like there's just a bunch of random "cool sounding" Lyrics thrown in there

It’s in the air
So get your head right
Crawling through the sand
Making noise, crackin’ dynamite
And I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the past I can’t ignore
Nothing less, nothing more
It’s all the same as before
I’m just feeding my appetite (I’m just feeding my appetite)
It’s in the ground
Underneath
Tied up, tweaked out
Inherently
And I’ve been swimming in the new millennium
Run, run, here I come
I’m just having some fun
I’m just feeding my appetite

Fuck your ass.
I don’t want your cereal.
You can get your wig split back.
I'll be the same ol’ G.

More Than Words - Extreme

"Sayin' I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you"


wat

the theme is "stop talking and suck my dick, dammit"

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah

I wanna hold em like they do in Texas please
Fold em let em hit me raise it baby stay with me, I love it
Luck and intuition play the cards with Spades to start
And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart

Oh, oh, oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
Oh, oh, oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got

Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)

I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be
A little gambling is fun when you're with me, I love it
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it's love if it's not rough it isn't fun, fun

Oh, oh, oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
Oh, oh, oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got

Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
(Mum mum mum mah)
(Mum mum mum mah)

I won't tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
Cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin
I'm not lying I'm just stunnin' with my love-glue-gunning

Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand cause I'm marvelous

Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
Can't read my, can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(She's got to love nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face

Every morning there's a halo hangin
from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for
the weekend or a one-night stand
Couldn't understand
How to work it out
Once again as predicted left my broken heart open
and you ripped it out
Something's got me reeling
Stopped me from believing
Turn me around again
Said that we can do it
You know I wanna do it again

Quote by Hal-Sephira

We all have the rights to be mad

So does you

Kanye West entire catalog

Just an example, I'll use some lines from one song

Black Skinhead

"They see a black man with a white woman
At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong"

-------by kill King Kong I guess he means give him piles of money.


"Middle America packed in
Came to see me in my black skin
Number one question they asking
Fuck every question you asking
If I don't get ran out by Catholics
Here come some conservative Baptists"

------This may have been a legitimate fear 50 years ago


"I keep it 300, like the Romans
300 bitches, where's the Trojans?"

-------reference to the movie 300 I'm assuming? Which had nothing to do with Romans or Trojans.

The most cryptic lyrics I can think of are those by Ne Obliviscaris and The Mars Volta:

Quote by Ne Obliviscaris: And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope

Kings of this carousel, disfigured upon white horses
With Goya's claws and Dore's wings
Down golden locks to red crosses
Crowned children screaming from funeral shrouds
To rapid eye movement, heart-strings undone
... our beautiful filth dances... and plague flowers

Quote by The Mars Volta: Cassandra Gemini

All your dreams
splintered off
Leech by leech
On this catafalque

Anyone will tell you
Yes anyone
Chance had me setting a trip wire alarm

Your mother flirted with disease
When she skinned that costume by it’s navel strings

Panic in the shakes of the wounded
Panic in the worms
Onto the floor
And out of your mouth
Out of your eyelids

Even the song names are cryptic. That said, I'm sure there is some sense in all of these lyrics.

Sumer Metal Driver
Ibanez RGD2120Z
AMT SS-11B

Dance Gavin Dance's entire catalog. More specifically, Jon Mess's lyrics, and particularly, Downtown Battle Mountain 2. Here's the lyrics to Pounce Bounce. Jon Mess is underlined

[U]What's it like to be a marble?
Did I get something in your eye?
She's a referee, and I'm lethally
Overdosed on pumpkin pie
Yes the future is mount delicious son
But the leaf changes forms continuum
My destiny is calling me, it says
Jon Mess you should own a gun[/U]

Feel the room filling up with smoke,
Billowing, billowing up, holding on for the worst, rise above.

[U]Can I get a piece of that?
Uniquely post relapse
The quota and balancing act
Can I get a piece of that[/U]?

Come down, ... in my veins,
..., the whispers start to drill,
The pain of second place.

[U]What's it like to be an atheist?
Are you okay with suicide?
Well it's baffling that my ears can bleed
When I see your domestic thighs
Yes the future is kush and bubblegum
But I prefer wood to linoleum
My destiny is calling me, it says
You'll be fine if you take some Tums[/U]

I'm letting out, well I feel that I've dropped it all,
I'm letting out, well I feel that I've rushed it,

Come down, ... in my veins,
..., the whispers start to drill,
The pain of second place.


The ellispies are because some of the lyrics are straight up unintelligible

@EyeNon15

You're a straight-up dumbass.

If you legit don't understand simple references like King Kong, then you really should just shut the fuck up about Kanye.
