The Lyrical Poetry of LILLIAN AXE


For discussion, the following song is from Lillian's 1989 CD, "Love + War"


SHE LIKES IT ON TOP

So you feel a little lonely girl
Well you know you're used to that one
Now the taste of sweet success
Is on your lips, you always want some

Picture perfect innocence
Behind a guard that she can't drop
She's been around the world
Now she's back on the top

[Chorus:]
She wants everything put in her lap
Yeah she likes it on top
She's in the right place

Though all along you knew it was wrong
The taste of blood got to ya

Now everyone who's on your list
You know they gotta do something for ya

Not a care at her expense
She'll pay the piper when he stops
She's been around the world
Now she's back on the top

[Chorus]

She cries herself to sleep at night
It's not all it's cracked up to be
She Can't See, Yeah

She's a little lonely
Gets her kicks on top of the world

[Solo]

Picture Perfect Innocence
She'll pay the piper when he stops
She's been around the world
Now she's back on the top

That's bull****.

I do like the line "She'll pay the piper." They must have thought they were so clever when they wrote that one.

Can you turn off the profanity filter? This is horrifying!

There is a little nod to the song "Picture Perfect" from their first album in the first line of the second verse too.

Personally I think the lyrics are not graphic enough. Dare I say my mind is sprier than the lyric writer but IF they intended that song to be sexually suggestive, it hardly scratches the surface. Being "on top" could mean in the rat race of life. Perhaps Im missing something?

It's subtle. A wink wink kind of thing. Like in the song "Under the Boardwalk."

Totally unlike modern rap where they explicitly spell out their plans for the encounter. biggrin.gif

Some gates are tougher than others. Hopefully, death and darkness will rush forward to take a bit from this wall.

Don't know if this will make it better foryou Squid but the way to get around the censor list to some degree is to strategically use the * key.

Like F*uck that - f*ckin nuts - shi*t if I know, etc...Actually you could use the "period" key or any that doesn't muck the word up too much also, like F.uck that - s.hit-head shiftkey, etc...
Hope Art doesnt mind me sharing this little fact idea Wow, how ladylike of me...LOL

Thanks Squid - as for the movie of the week, it's coming soon. I've just had a lot of loose ends to tie up around my personal life and it just timed itself right with the Grand Opening here. I've not abandoned my post, no fear.
