Master "What's the Meaning of these Lyrics?" Thread

You ever notice how some songs have such esoteric lyrics that you can't begin to know what they mean? Well, here's the board to find out!

You know the rules:
- Once someone knows what the song is about, he or she chooses the next song.
- My only variation is, the poster doesn't have to know answer. This isn't a trivia thread necessarily.
- And, in the interests of practicality, I think we should accept "drugs" as the answer if the evidence presents itself.



OK, I'll start: What is Journey singing about in the song Wheels in the Sky? (No, I promise my musical taste is not limited to wuss rock.)

They are obviously refering to the logo of the detroit redwings.

My question:
Dio:
"Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me?"

It's obviously a tribute to Captain Ahab and his quest for Moby Dick... the crew wants to go home and get dinner or something.

let's Try De La Soul's "MAGIC NUMBER":

This here piece of the pie
Is not dessert but the course that we dine
And three out of every darn time
The effect is "Mmmm" when a daisy grows in your mind
Showing true position, this here piece is
Kissin' the part of the pie that's missin'
When that negative number fills up the casualty
Maybe you can subtract it
You can call it your lucky partner
Maybe you can call it your adjective
But odd as it may be
Without my 1 and 2 where would there be
My 3
Mase Pos and Me
And that's the Magic Number

Ya know, I was just thinking about starting a thread like this. I thought of doing it more as an "art exhibit' type deal where we could just through ideas out, but if someone actually knew, they could say what it's about.

On 'Magic Number':
It's about life and how everything really does fit together, I'd say.


ok, one of my fave songs right now:
Audioslave- 'I Am the Highway'
Pearls of swine bereft of me
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity for the leaving I feel

(chorus)
I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

Friends and liars don't wait for me
I'll get on by myself
I put millions of miles
Under my heels
And still too close to you
I feel

(chorus)
I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightening
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night

Hmm, I always though Wheel in the Sky was about being on tour,
