It's fun finding these phrases! It's different when one speaks English since there are some I don't put down because I understand them already, but the ones I do find are really fun ones that either I don't get or I have to see the phrases together and then I feel I can interpret them. Hope that makes sense!
Save Me is one fantastic song too and some of you guys were talking about this so I will take a stab at it:
Did I really cut open the goose
Just to lose what's in it
Did you ever read Aespop's Fables? There is one called "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg"? A Fable, if anyone hasn't read them, were written for children in order to point out a moral or "be careful what you ask for". It's short in this paragraph below and maybe this is what Marko was meaning:
A man and his wife owned a very special goose. Every day the goose would lay a golden egg, which made the couple very rich.
"Just think," said the man's wife, "If we could have all the golden eggs that are inside the goose, we could be richer much faster."
"You're right," said her husband, "We wouldn't have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day."
So, the couple killed the goose and cut her open, only to find that she was just like every other goose. She had no golden eggs inside of her at all, and they had no more golden eggs.
Moral: Too much greed results in nothing (I didn't assign that moral to it, whomever wrote the down the story online did, but yeah, it's like that) and there are different cultures that talk about it in different ways.........that was the one taught to me.
Sometimes I think most morality stories are really "be careful for what you ask for, it might not turn out to be what you wanted or needed". That's the way I see them anyways.
Let's see here:
1. of ego cultivation
2. I'm rolling my eyes like the stones for the lies
3. Ashtrays filled with the fruits of our transgressions
4. Bloodhound and of no better pedigree than what you see so you could not offend
The Ultimate Fling is one of those songs that goes back and forth between a heavy rock and, sort of a narrative, rap without the rap beat maybe (ok no one kill me for that comparison please and I happen to like some rap) which is so interesting!! Of course awesome song and I like to watch the vidoes of that one!
(Gimme a reason, c'mon now make my day!)
Sorry Lisa! I didn't see what you wrote about the goose and you summed it up sorry about that!
