Often, I’ll listen to a song over and over and over, and I’ll never really listen to the lyrics. Then one day, I’m in the car, and I really pay attention to the song, and I say “WOW…THAT’S what the song is about? Whoa…can’t believe I missed that until now.”
I had one such epiphany while listening to “Silo Lullaby” by Toad the Wet Sprocket. (hidden track on Coil, and normal track on PS) About a month after getting Coil, I was listening to it again, and I just went: “Whoa…nuclear annihilation, and the people who press the button.”
What songs did this happen to you on?
(another for me is “The Flag” by BNL…don’t know HOW I missed that one…just never actually heard the words…just kind of went along with the music while ignoring the lyrics, I guess)
