My little brother got this assignment from school, where he has to write about a song that uses symbolism (in the lyrics). Hes got me stumped... Anybody know of any songs? Preferably not metal, alternative would be great.
Thanks in advance.

The Love Song - Marilyn Manson.


Told from two perspectives: the gun and the bullet. The gun represents the father and the bullet, the son. There is also mention of a "pistol," who represents the girl that the "bullet" wants.

Done, methinks. And not very metal by any standards.

Yeah but the line 'chop your breakfast on a mirror' isn't exactly cryptic now is it?

yep
i had to write a poem with a bunch of words written on pieces of paper and we got a blank piece, so my friend goes and writes "penis" on there. not to mention we had words like hard, long, etc. etc. So we ended writting all about horse penis and just penis in general, course the teacher was angry so i'm said that there were tons of symbolism in it like this one line "Long horse Penis makes me hard" i said horse penis represented America and the long represented like evil and bad things, and i said that "making me hard" represented pleasure (duh) but i said that line was basically saying America's youth doing rotten things gives us pleasure and i went into a big spiel on how the penis in the poem always represented America and how the econoy was not doing great and how the youth is evil and how we're all corrupt and if the teacher couldn't see this symbolism he should consider quitting. just thought i'd share, and keep in mind you can basically say anything you want and anything could represent something, you just gotta think deeper into it
