    runaway train is just about someone who is very sad and they can't stop all of the bad things that keep happening.
    in the song they just want all of the sad things to stop so the person can be happy again.:)

    in more human than human i think rob zombie is just singing about being more than human. it's weird but i think it's a song about wanting more out of life.[face_thinking]

    Yes! I too would like an explanation to More Human than a Human. That song has been in my head for the past 2 hours.

    When you're done with that, I want an explanation for the words "kissed by a rose on the gray"
    ~Seal

    what the hell is a gray? what good would it do for a gray to be kissed by a rose? I demand satisfaction.

    the seal song i've often wondered about myself.
    i should have known someone would ask for that one.

    i'm going to have to go to my expert for this one.
    i'll let you know by the end of this weekend.

    I AM the seal expert!!!


    okay j.p. it's not kissed on the rose by a gray, but "kissed by a rose on the grave.

    i heard that song on the 90s at noon today.

    now, what this means can be taken as a lot of things. first, lets think about graves. graves have dead people in them. when someone comes to visit the dead they often bring some offering or trinket to symbolize a gesture of affection. in this case, someone is putting a rose on seal's grave. with that, let us consider how often dead people in graves get visited. the answer is: not often. [face_skull] usually people don't go to visit the final resting place of dead people because it's creepy and they can't even really hear you anyhow.

    therefore, getting a rose on your grave is a rare thing, much less rare if you're jim morisson or somebody like that, but still, most dead people don't get flowers too often. so when they do, it's a big deal.

    also, one must consider the point of view seal is singing from here. it's probably not his own because he's not dead. it's probably not the perspective of a corpse since he's singing in metaphor. we will now remember that this song came from the batman movie "batman forever" which means that this song is about batman.

    when that psychatrist lady falls in love with batman, she starts to really think about him and why he is like he is. so when she kisses him, it's quite different from anybody else since this lady is really something special.

    so, kiss from a rose on the grave is like getting that special one chance meeting with a psychatriast when you're batman.
    i hope that clears it up for you.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me Axle. :cool: but in that case, I'd rather get "kissed by some hos at a rave."

    Joda! Earth needs your help... What the hell do they mean by, "up jumps the boogie"?

    I liken that to mean something like "get up off the wall and dance," I guess it's open to interpretation.

    i think it is referring to the sudden urge to dance. [face_dancing]
    you know how it just hits you sometimes.
    that's what up jumps the boogie means.

    Hmmmm I respect your answer, but it all seems so out of context. I'll have to do some investigating...

    Sara! Just what does she put in that damn milkshake that brings all the boys to the yard? Is there one I could make for girls?

    i think if you just make a milkshake it'll make the girls come. girls love guys who cook for them.
    as for what's in the other milkshake it has everything you would want in a milkshake.:p

    Have any of you ever tried to decipher a Yoopers' lyric? Don't put too much thought into it. You'll hurt yourself. I won't even quote one of their songs for fear of the iminent dangers
