Lyrics that make you go WTF!?!

Man On The Edge - Iron Maiden
Once he built missiles a nation's defence
Now he can't even give birthday presents

Please, Zoots.....here you go:

Maniac, by Michael Sembello

Just a steel town girl on a saturday night, lookin' for the fight of her life
In the real-time world no one sees her at all, they all say she's crazy

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart, changing woman into life
She has danced into the danger zone, when a dancer becomes a dance

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between will and what will be

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

On the ice-build iron sanity is a place most never see
It's a hard warm place of mystery, touch it, but can't hold it
You work all your life for that moment in time, it could come or pass you by
It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night

There's a cold connective heat, struggling, stretching for defeat
Never stopping with her head against the wind

She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between will and what will be

She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

REM "Leaving New York"

leaving was never my proud

I want to beat Michael Stipe with a stick whenever I hear that line in an otherwise lovely song.

Yeah Maniac sounds pretty damn WTF! I've heard the song before of course but never paid attention to the lyrics.

As for Stipe, he used a little poetic license... give him a break!

Heirloom - Björk

I have a recurrent dream
Everytime I loose my voice
I swallow little glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me

And during the night
They do a trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above my bed

While I'm asleep
My mother and son pour into me
Warm glowing oil
Into my wide open throat

Poetic license is all fine and good until it sounds stupid and like they don't know how to use English.

"Lucky that my lips not only mumble, they spill kisses like a fountain. Luck that my breasts are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains."

It's from "Whenever, Wherever"

I guess pretty much all of Visions of Johanna. And it's still one of my favorite songs of all time.

That's bad, but let's go back 24 years ago to a much better (and similarly themed) Maiden lyric:


"The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you.
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song,
To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun."

--from 2 Minutes to Midnight

You can hand that stick to me when you're done.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red
And what the hell is on Joey's head



Well, I don't know what on his head, Chad. I can't see the damn thing. Maybe music is the wrong medium for this sort of exhibition.

The Irish have been coming here for years
Feel like they own the place
They got the airport, city hall, asphalt, dance floor, they even got the police
Irish, Italians, Jews and Hispanics
Religious nuts, political fanatics in the stew,
Living happily not like me and you
That's where I lost you... NewYork
[sic; compliments of the ever-embarrassing www.u2.com]

Fucking awful. Honestly. So bad.
