I know there is a lot of threads about song meanings so that's why i thought that maybe (maybe) it would be fun to put them all in one.
So what we can do is this: first one person (me) puts the name of a song, then someone else says what the song means and the name of another song (like in the song vs song or guess the lyrics threads).
The meaning could be a literal meaning, an i-know-this-for-a-fact meaning, a personal interpretation (remember: music is art, so it's open to interpretations), or just a joke....
Any coments, thoughts, insults, this-thread-is-stupid remarks, or any other http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d143/Ana005/Emoticons/caca.gif like that are welcome
so here it goes...

If you're gonna give a one word meaning of a song, why not explain all the songs? A one word meaning is so general and brief, explain it, they have heaps of songs to do with depression. They each have their own unique meaning and why it is depressing.

I think this better be my last post in this thread because I could go on for pages on any offspring song. If I remember correctly, I made at lest a paragraph or two on Intermission alone. :o

this thread would be really good if we gave a whole descrption of the song and ask for another one. say if i said dirty magic, then the next person would give their interpretation of the song, and then added another. if you understand go with it, if not, well i guess this thread is screwed. if it works, it might get as popular as the song vs song thread.

Demons just seems to be about a cult making sacrifices at a ceremony. It doesn't seem very deep to me, but that's just my interpritation. Still an awesome song.

I think it's kind of the same as Pretty Fly, kind of mocking white gangsters.

i think this song is about not being able to get what you want in life, to be stuck in the same moment over and over, no matter what you do to try to move on.

No, it's about a guy pulling pranks, the potential consequences and what people think about it.

Well there's nothing before it that could make it a joke, so he's either stupid or an idiot.

I think, He's in a dispute with someone, most likely a girlfriend.. he knows that she's totally wrong for him, all they do is fight, and the same thing happens every time they try to work it out. Yet, he just keeps crawling back even know he knows it will never work.
