Music Discussion - Post Lyrics or Songs - Talk About What It Means

#1

Post music related things here.

I’ll start. I’m listening to Johnny Mandel - Suicide Is Painless (Audio) which you may know from MASH which was on television from 1972-1983 and it is a show about the American Korean War 1950-1953. Like Vietnam, Korea had a civil war. America got involved.

In this song - Suicide is Painless - They keep singing that suicide is painless and that it brings on many changes and that I can take it or leave it as I please and that you can do the same thing if you please. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this song seems to be promoting suicide, apathy, nihilism, pacifism, not enough yummy original green oatmeal, arrogance, ignorance, surrender, depression, negativity, pessimism, fear, nirvana, meaninglessness, relativity and subjectivity over objective eternal purpose, etc, etc. This song goes on to talk about how pain increases as you give into suicide and other things and it seems to be a good thing if you are numb to everything else. If you are in a bad place in your life, you give into pain and more pain, to cutting yourself, to drugs, alcohol, drugs, sex, etc, etc, because you are in need of something and you have a big hole in your heart. It might be promoting drugs and other things.

Post anything music related in this thread.

Linkin Park sang a song, in the end it does not really matter, except that it really does matter, and Bon Jovi or whoever sang that it’s my life and that it is now or never as life don’t last forever, which is true in a way but also dangerous if not harnished enough.

Damn @joey great topic!

‘Imagine’ by John Lennon… it’s a globalist playbook in a song. U.N
Agenda 21 & 2030 is all over that song.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today (ah ah ah)

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

Hey there, people, Im bobby brown
They say Im the cutest boy in town
My car is fast, my teeth is shiney
I tell all the girls they can kiss my heinie
Here I am at a famous school
Im dressin sharp n im
Actin cool
I got a cheerleader here wants to help with my paper
Let her do all the work n maybe later I’ll rape her

Oh God I am the american dream
I do not think Im too extreme
An Im a handsome sonofabitch
Im gonna get a good job n be real rich

(get a good
Get a good
Get a good
Get a good job)

Womens liberation
Came creepin across the nation
I tell you people I was not ready
When I fucked this dyke by the name of freddie
She made a little speech then,
Aw, she tried to make me say when
She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick
I guess it’s still hooked on, but now it shoots too quick

Oh God I am the american dream
But now I smell like vaseline
An Im a miserable sonofabitch
Am I a boy or a lady…i don’t know which

(I wonder wonder
Wonder wonder)

So I went out n bought me a leisure suit
I jingle my change, but Im still kinda cute
Got a job doin radio promo
An none of the jocks can even tell Im a homo
Eventually me n a friend
Sorta drifted along into s&m
I can take about an hour on the tower of power
Long as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the american dream
With a spindle up my butt till it makes me scream
An I’ll do anything to get ahead
I lay awake nights sayin, thank you, fred!
Oh god, oh god, Im so fantastic!
Thanks to freddie, Im a sexual spastic
And my name is bobby brown
Watch me now, Im goin down,
And my name is bobby brown
Watch me now, Im goin down,

I believe Lennon had said it was 'socialist; but Lennon disagreed LIVE on TV in the 1970’s with Yoko when he said he did not believe that there was a ‘human overpopulation’ problem. after his murder, Yoko endorsed the Georgia Guidestones.
i think Lennon is saying something that we all know - the reason for all of our strife is the divisions that we create amongst ourselves! We have different views on Heaven/God - country etc . As the old cartoon said, “I saw the enemy…and he is us!”

This song is self-explanatory -
That’s Right

Walked into the church, people all around

some were raising up their hands,
and some were on the ground

Everyone they meet, they tell you must believe

and if you don’t agree with them, then evil you’ll receive

That’s right!

Those who want our vote, say what we want to hear

when they get elected, then they kick us in the rear

Seems like everything, that they say and do,

Designed to only help themselves
and won’t help me and you

That’s Right!

Some in high positions
Others whom we trust

Squarely look you in the eye,
while screwing you for lust

And so many others,
believe that most should die,

because the Earth their mother,
cannot handle you or I

That’s right!

When I make some money,
Uncle Sam, he comes to call,

if I don’t give him some,
he says he’ll take it all

And if he doesn’t get it,
tomorrow or today,

he’ll go ahead and print it,
so still he’ll get his way

That’s right!

They’re listening to my calls,
reading all my mail,

If they don’t like the words I say,
they haul me off to jail

If I criticize
the wrongs that they do,

they’ll say that I’m a terrorist
and that I might hurt you

That’s right!

You know we stand for justice
you know we stand for peace

we want our voices heard
and so we take it to the streets

Some don’t want to hear
our voices they would cease,

somebody gets distressed
and then they call the state police

That’s right!

Truth they do not tell,
truth they do not teach,

If you want to tell the truth,
then they take away your speech,

They say that you’re mistaken,
what you say is wrong,

If you want to keep your freedom,
then you’ve got to go along

That’s right!

We go to other countries,
show up on the scene,

blow up all the people,
on TV it looks so clean,

They say it’s fine and just,
but we know otherwise’

killing all these people
and our soldiers with their lies

That’s right!

You tell me what to think,
you tell me what to do,

everything you say is wrong
so why should I thank you?

Hope you heard my message,
others know I’m right,

and I hope you have a blessed day,
and that HELL will be your night

That’s right!!!

True Words…

Your blue might be gray, your less might be more
Your window to the world might be your own front door
Your shiniest day might come in the middle of the night
That’s just about right
