Thoughts & Meanings

Dirty Paws cover Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men

I think it's a metaphor for WWII. The dragonfly is a solider who went to war. The bees are the Nazis/Axis powers. The queen bee is Adolf Hitler. The birds are the British and the French. The forest that once was green is Europe. The dirty paws are the Americans. The creatures of snow are the Russians.

Slippery When Wet cover Slippery When Wet by The Acorn

I can't help thinking that this is about a car crash. A couple who is going through problems but are still "tangled" in the relationship is in a car on a wet road, which loses traction and crashes into a tree. The relationship started as just a normal, healthy, "straight line", but kept on getting more and more complex, and the straight line got tangled up and spiraled out of control. "Spiral spin" can refer to both the out of control car spinning off the road and the relationship spinning out of control. The panda, or the woman in the relationship climbs the tree, gets away from the ground, where the wet worm, the man, waits for her to come back to the ground. But she lives a life in spite of him, and won't come down. I think the fruit bearing seed could be talking about her other lovers, and how she refuses to eat any of the "fruit", meaning that despite all the lovers who bear her love, she won't devote herself to any of them. As the singer gets out of the car and looks at the wreck, he sees the leaves on the ground and their fall colors mixing with his (ex?)lover's blood. This song is really haunting, and I love how up to interpretation all of it is.
