So yeah, I was shown this song, and I must admit it's pretty straight and to the point for all the metaphors.

Please, share your song with obvious meaning.

I like it when people say songs have meanings or hidden messages which they just simply don't.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is an example of this. It was named after a painting done by a child. However many people seem to demand that the reason for the name is due to LSD, being the initials. And claiming that the whole song is a reference to taking LSD. Something which the creator didn't do before or at the time of the songs creation. Also Puff the Magic Dragon, again said to be a reference to drugs, which again wasn't the case at all. Yet people truly believe that songs have such meanings to them despite the actual artists constantly telling them that they are incorrect.

Oh and then you have things like the Beatles, as in an album cover that was meant to say "HELP" using flags actually said something else which people for some reason said meant something along the lines of "New supporting drummer player" or something like that I have no reason to remember such stupid conspiracy theories. The actual reason for it not being "HELP" was that they did originally spell that but it was changed as someone thought it didn't look visually pleasing, so they changed it to a more pleasing image which then managed to feed a ridiculous conspiracy about their lead drummer dying and being replaced or similar, as if they would spell it so blatantly if they did and if they dug out the body of the dead drummer, made him look living again, and then put him in a pose for the picture to be taken.

Some conspiracies are good, but some people...just seriously.

Meaning is derived from the people listening, not the creator. Go fuck yourself.

Just like me telling you to go fuck yourself. It could mean I want you to take your cock and shove it up your ass because you're an idiot. Or it could be an expression in the English language that is derogatory.

Go ahead and say that meaning is objective. I dare you. Intent? Maybe. Meaning? Get the fuck outta here.

Here's a much better one.

I thought that initially as well, but now I'm not so sure, especially since I've read somewhere that it's meant to be simply about the power some people have to persuade, and how Genesis was fascinated by it.


Pretend not to care about anything, but be bothered by everything.

God, you'd think with a name like Dying Fetus, they'd have at least a little artistic value....that was terrible
