Analyzing the Lyrics of “Sirius B” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”

Analyzing the Lyrics of “Sirius B” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”


First, my apologies for delays on the continuation of this project! I feel a bit behind on things for a while and am jubilant to be continuing where I left off.

These pieces may not seem like a like of content, but regardless of that they can take three to four hours each and so while I hate it, sometimes they must be sat aside until I have a completely free evening 🙂

Excuses out of the way lets talk about Sirius B.

So let’s Recap them Lyrics and discuss!


campervan-800px

Buckle up your seatbelts we about to leave on a road trip

The first line is just an intro primarily, but I think in a way it is also saying “Listen to us please, and pay close attention because what we are going to say is important.” Let’s see what they have to say!

I feel this song is very much using the metaphor of taking a ship into space, and going into space, as a journey through your mind, the state of mind, and going to a place where you are happy. A sort of a break from the everyday things that drag you down and make life “hard” or take away your happiness. So it’s time to take a journey back to a place where you are happy.

nasa-explosion-rocket-800px

Except there’s no road our ship takes off like a bomb exploded

No road here has the distinct meaning of they are talking about traveling through space. The deeper meaning is that they are traveling a path that is in the mind.

venus

Stopped for gas at the Saturn but it was 150 a liter
So we hop on over to Venus it’s at least a little bit cheaper
And I had just left the station when I had to get off on the shoulder
License and registration do ya know why I pulled you over
You were doin’ 305 in a 200 million

The man, always putting you down, stopping you from doing what you want to. Society also does the same with its pressures to conform to it and to think the same, rather than going outside of what has been deemed accepted.

This can happen when you are going to unusual places even within your mind.

Also, that as you explore yourself, you will have those thoughts, beliefs, and pressure in your mind slowing you down but you just have to get past it.

You have to question everything so that you can come to your own understandings.

beer3-800px

You’re lucky I like ya music son I saw you chuggin’ that Killians

Killian’s is a damned fine beer! Before microbreweries became common in my area and you drank nothing but the standard grocery store shelved beers, this was my beer of choice.

police-800px

But he let me go I get back fine I step off the ship

Breaking away from those thoughts that are holding you back in your mind.

I’m finally home I take a deep breath as my skin wets from the mist
And try to think of Earth but it’s almost like I forget it exists
The only thing I know is that they makin’ a mess of that bitch

I think this is all about perspectives. Thinking in larger viewpoints and seeing things from the outside. Looking at how we treat our planet and the life on it, rather than being a part of it.

tiere-coloured-800px

Takin’ a walk through the forest all the flowers lean toward us
You can tell they adore us and when the animals saw us
They lined up everyone from small as a flea to as big as a tyrannosaurus
And they started singing for us can’t remember it all
But I think the chorus was like

A union and sharing with everything. Plan, animal, and insect alike. The importance of life, all life in the world. Something that as you search yourself, understand yourself, and become happy that often weighs heavily on the mind in my experience.

sperm-800px

(Chorus) Hello there
Welcome to the place you’re from

What is important is how this line is said. It says “The place you’re from,” it does not say “Home.” I feel that this is very much a reference to home, being a state of mind and not a physical place.

That at this part in the song you have reached within your inner mind that place of peace.

You’ve been away for far too long So sit back it’s all fine now
And just know that there’s a place for
You with us tonight

I feel that this is all talking about a place of comfort for you or within yourself.

ufo-800px

(Verse 2)
Kick back with a six pack I’m good
The leaders back in the hood
Watch ships zig­zag through the sky
Pop a couple Tic­tacs

He’s doing what makes him happy. It speaks about being happy and finding a place of happiness in yourself. Not doing physical things.

path-to-nirvana-800px

I know you’d Wanna be here
fact is ya could
Wanna make sure that’s understood
But ya gotta find your own way here
There ain’t no GPS trackin’ the route
You’d love it wanna take a tour

Something anyone that ever finds their own place of peace within themselves will understand, is that no one else could have put them there.

There are things you learn and that can be taught that give you tools to help you find that place, but ultimately only you can travel in your own mind.

teleporter-800px

That’s more of a metaphor here we can teleport
Go anywhere when we hella bored
Saw a car what’s that, what the hell’s it for
We can blink and be there we alien

You can travel anywhere in your own mind, once you learn the routes to take.

weed-openclipart-800px

We don’t smoke weed we smoke uranium
You know you’re high when ya cranium Explodes with the sound of a crowded stadium
20 hour nights makin’ moonshine outta moonlight
We don’t need to eat but we keep food around so we can have food fights
You should hear the music homie we never do whats been done twice
Uh, better get some ice partys go ‘til third sunrise
Fuck with us that’d be unwise we could take you out in a burst of heat
But that’ll never happen ‘cause we believe in universal peace
So come party with us where the shots vanish mysteriously
And seriously that’s how we do on Sirius B

This is all much as we have seen throughout the song. We went up this huge hill if you will, and now we are on a straight piece of flatland racing along.

Metaphors for being happy and explorings one’s self. This can be done with other people is both a metaphor and at the same time it is not.

It mean’s share the journey with them. Explore yourself. Question everything, and then you will have a connection with each other.

Also enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Teleporting from earlier’s, cars, ships, and the continual fast movement of party, drinking, songs. Is all about enjoying the journey, not just the destination.

thumbdala-800px

(Chorus)
That’s what’s up That’s what’s up That’s what’s up That’s what’s up
That­that­that­that’s what’s up

Awwww man, and with that, it is time for me to wrap up this journey, which I took with Recap. I hope that those who didn’t fully understand the journey may now enjoy it more. Thank you for tagging along with me on this trip.

Remember, this series is being done with permission and is only my thoughts and impressions of their music. I may get some things wrong, I may put meaning where they did not intend it, and I am fully sure I’m not getting it all (Sometimes I have revelations by an even deeper meaning in a line, and then forget it again.. simply because their music has so much depth!).


P.S.
Dear Recap Band,

You know I love you. I know your busy. Im busy to, very often and that is why I am lame and am still doing these peices, which I meant to have done when your new album launched. But… I very much would like a video for this song! *cracks wip*

P.P.S.

You know that was a joke, very much in the reference of Richard Garriott getting fan mail and how the format it almost always was, which I figured you would get, being.. right. Although that video ONE OF THESE DAYS, would be epic :).

Time For a Little Music Vidoe With Recap – “Wrong War”

My favorite band, The Recap Band, and friends the Space Bards, recently put out a new album “Pronoia.” Frankly, it’s bad ass.

This was recently followed by the posting of a video for “Wrong War”! If you missed it here, you go! Also for those waiting on the next Lyric analytical from Neon Milk, bear with me. I will still be doing the rest of the album, but I am playing catch up from the last couple of weeks. It’ll be there in its own time, but it shall come, and it shall be good!

Be sure to follow the link to YouTube, give it a thumbs up, and drop a comment that Stile sent you!

Analyzing the Lyrics of “Fed Up” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”

Remember, this is only my opinions and even if stated in an accurate way is not meant more then as my opinion.

Hello, everyone! I apologize that his piece has been a little slow in the last couple of week. If I can, I am going to try to do the rest of the songs fairly quickly soon. I have quite a few articles I need to write and will be working on catching up, so bear with me!

Happy for now to get this one out to you. So let us listen to and see if we cannot understand the song “Fed Up” by Recap better!

(Chorus)
I’m sick of waitin’ on this world to change
Guess I’ll pack up
My bags I’m leavin’ on a space plane
Guess I’m fed up
Guess I’m fed up

So the chorus of this song is a summary of the general theme of the song. Overall a turning of your back on the world and other people sort of thing. I do not want to go into the full theme here, though, as it is better to understand it from the lyrics, so read on.

Earth

(Verse 1)
(Sigh) Earth what the hell’s the matter with you Can’t ya see that your status as a civilized planet Is shatterin’ can you see the pattern yet

Our aliens are talking to us, asking us why aren’t we logically looking at our choices and decisions, what they are causing to happen, and making a change. I saw a Meme recently that said something along the lines of Those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and those that do will get to watch it repeated because no one else will. Something along those lines. Very apt to this verse!

Blood in syringes

Think you’ve come far but the blood’s still splatterin’ All over the world people die with teeth chatterin’ From the cold while these brats badgerin’

In general, I believe that as a species we feel we have accomplished a lot. We have! Computers, Nano Technology, Space travel, take your pick. Yet, with all of our accomplishments in many areas, we haven’t grown nearly as much regarding how we care for each other, and life on the planet. As a whole, we have remained a very selfish species. We have improved, but we still have a long way to go as there is a lot of NEEDLESS suffering in this world.

Tablet - pad - 2400px

Fuckin’ dad for an ipad again and again

Not only being materialistic but needlessly so.

Y’all evolve slower than a mothafuckin’ mannekin

We know and have known for a long time know about all kinds of issues, concerns, problems, whatever you want to call them, that exist in this world. Some of these things are not easy to resolve, but some are. They continue to be issues. It’s insanity to want everyone to be the same, yet that has been the “social” acceptable norm for much of history.

Why does it always have to end this way
With me dismayed over all the horror every which way

Every time you feel like maybe we are progressing, things are changing. Something happens that makes you wonder how far we have progressed. No matter how hard you try and work, sometimes it feels like we continue to do and repeat the same mistakes. It sometimes feels like two steps back and one forward rather than two forward and one back.

If I were to bet I’d be takin’ the odds
You keep killin’ each other over fuckin’ paper and God

No matter how good it starts to look, it is starting to feel like it will just go wrong every time. Something will cause it. Money, religion, maybe politics or something else. Regardless when you look at the future it begins to feel like that is the history we are doomed to just keep repeating.

Ufo_in_metalic_style.svg.hi

So let’s be realistic there ain’t a way to fix it
And if I stay here I’ma end up with my wrists slit
So make a quick list couple wings and a stick shift
Shootin’ for the stars guess we gonna need a ship kids

The metaphor on requiring a ship to leave is that people just find escapes rather than try to deal with things. Whatever your escape may be, music, books, games. That doesn’t mean those things are always an escape, but sometimes they can be. When they are used in a way to just hide and get away from the real world, is the metaphor being spoken of here.

Flux-Capacitor-2400px

(Verse 2)
That’s it I’m gettin’ off of this bitch yo
Earth is just a shitshow of schizo sickos
At each other’s throats like pit bulls it’s so Obvious they need help but fuck this yo Phase 1 I went and bought an RV
But it hardly would start we needed parts see Couldn’t fall asleep all week and 3 days Searchin’ for flux capacitators on ebay Scourin’ all of the yard sales
Gettin parts mailed to my house hey are there
Any packages from Carbondale with new hardware
I don’t need a bumper when there ain’t no poles or guard rails
Up there where we goin’ we ain’t gonna slow for no one
We don’t need no chauffeur bro when I can drive on my own and solo Hopin’ that the heat ain’t broken oh you know we coulda used Cloaking for the cops oh well guess it’ll have to do

This is all just a great fun metaphor extending on the previous one, for flavor and enjoyment. Except that there is also an underlying reference of building a ship and going to a planet is all a metaphor for withdrawing, however, it is you do it. Into your safe place and own sanctuaries.

In some cases, it can also be a preparation for suicide as a way to not have to deal with the world anymore.

(Chorus 2x) (Outro)
I’m up all night daydreamin’
Every time I close my eyes I see the way gleamin’ (Guess I’m fed up)
Goodbye to pain and sorrow
I can’t wait anymore I leave tomorrow
(Guess I’m fed up)
I’m up all night daydreamin’
Every time I close my eyes I see the way gleamin’ (Guess I’m fed up)
Goodbye to pain and sorrow
I can’t wait anymore I leave tomorrow
(Guess I’m fed up)

We leave out with the chorus again, and move onto the next song!

Analyzing the Lyrics of “That’s Life” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”

Wow have the Recap Band been living it of late! Life that is. If you have been following them in their travels, they just got back from the Hobloth III LARP event in Austin, Texas. Talk about a road trip!

They are working on their next album, though, so I had better get a move on with getting this one done!

This first thing is the overall song is about life just like you would think from the title. So keep that in mind as we delve into the more subtle parts!

Floating Space Man Astronaut

Started off at the bottom I watch the energies all ascend

As I indicated we are talking about life and you need to keep that in mind to understand the lyrics. This is saying that I started out in life at the bottom. Not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, rich, or with a big hand out. Instead, what I have or what I will get is what I make on my own. While I am trying to figure it all out I am watching all the other people racing after what they think they want.

Road blocks I topped them I’m pushing through to the end But my heart strings have taken space ‘round my throat My head beats back I’m slowly losing control
My purpose turns into one hell of a backstabbing friend
Bright ideas go dark night of my soul begins
I sit in silence up here
Floating in the outer stratosphere

So there you are watching all these people race towards what they what but what you want is different. Your finding that unlike other things you can’t just go after it, it’s a harder road being blocked.

Your loosing control and such because, well, think of it like an anxiety attack. You know you want this thing, but why can’t you go after it? Why is it wrong to do so in so many other people’s eyes?

You have all these passionate and amazing ideas but you feel like they are just fading to nothing. Not working out, can’t try it, or even just not given a chance to. So you are as far away from everything as you possibly can be just observing it all and watching… [pullquote]Floating in the outer stratosphere[/pullquote].

globe_marcelo_staudt_.svg.hi

(Chorus)
My best illusions are the first ones to fall
Life’s lonely when you’re sitting on top of the world
It’s everything you want or its nothing at all
That’s life when you’re sitting on top of the world

I have a hard time with the chorus because I can see some different meanings here. I think that’s the point. This song has some transitional parts to it. What I mean by that is it is talking about a particular stage in life, yet it also has a between the lines vibe of, this is an earlier stage, and there are other stages that come later.

First, I think that it is saying that as you are going out and following these ideas you have in life, you realize how wrong you were. The things you felt strongest about are the ones that you discover first, and this allows you to find others then.

However, part of that is finding you and understanding yourself. That is a hard thing that while others may lend some aid through their experiences, in the end, everyoens path is different.

When you figure yourself out, who and what you want out of life, you may find happiness, or may find that you are still unhappy. Unable to either achieve what you need to to be happy or even perhaps doing so find you’re still not happy, and you didnt understand things as well as you thought.

That’s what it is all about! Is it, though?

Is it also perhaps not also that when you take the courage to rip away the largest illusions and falsehoods that you have weaved around your mind, that this allows you to discover yourself and achieve happiness?

Which while a terrific thing, even just figuring out the path can also be a hard thing. You have learned some lessons about yourself and about life, which just cannot be entirely taught. You can help provide hints, direction, but everyone has to get there on their own. That is a frustrating and lonely position to be in!

Either you will be at peace with what you have found for yourself and be happy, or because you have a need to help other people, not able just to enjoy it for yourself but also most share it with others that its not everything and everything you need and want can only be failed with continual effort. In fact, you may find that part of being happy in life means contributing a certain part of it to others and without that, you cannot truly be happy.

Finally and most importantly, though, what it most directly means is that maybe you do something in life because it is what you have been led to believe you should do. Whether it is your parent’s, your peers, your employees, or academia, this is the path you have been convinced that has been lain out for you.

You win man! You get their baby! Then you find out you are not happy. Now you have to look at yourself and your life, what you have been taught, and only by completely destroying part of who you are can you rebuild to figure out what you need to do for yourself. Like those damned illusions rip that bandaid away quick because it is going to hurt! Or in this case, duct tape! In this meaning, it also is good as a chorus as you may have to do this in life more than once. It never really truly ends in fact.

Orbit satellite-picture-hi

(Verse 2)
My thoughts are caught in orbit watching belief systems burn
I try to ignore it but then I hear their concerns
And I falter gravity pulls me down fast
I can’t hold back I’m reaching critical mass
My eyes both remain closed I’m seeing nothing but black
I’m blasting off this psychedelic track Swimming in chemicals up here Inside my upper hemisphere

This overall is not much different than the first verse. Watching belief system burn is a correlation to ripping the illusions away.

I try to ignore it means that I do not listen to what others are telling me but then what they are saying begin to convince me I am wrong after a while. I start listening to them.

That causes me to fail really quick and now I don’t know how to succeed. The more I am convinced it seems like the unhappier I become. Until I am so mind washed by them that all I see and do means nothing.

It’s time to get off all these chemicals and drugs, which equate to the mind washing of society and people. Time to follow the path that is there inside your head, you just have to learn to follow it.

rap hip-hop-dude-hi

(Chorus) (Verse 3)
Feels like I’m up against a brick wall
Waiting for the day that shit falls

Seems like this is my pitfall
Throwing rocks might as well be throwing spit balls
‘Cause the bricks all line up like a psychedelic jigsaw
Only one way in it’s this y’all
And it’s all still pulling me forward like a rickshaw
Gotta get to paradise
Got enough bad memories terabytes
I just wanna rap but I’m scared of mics
I wanna be on top but I’m scared of heights
Guess it all comes back to fear
Sweatin’ whole clips it’s that severe
‘Cause it’s high pressure in this atmosphere

(Chorus 3x)

Breaking down the last verse goes something like the first. Ok, I realize how bad that was, but I am keeping it.

Ok, the brick wall, shit falling, and pitfall. These are all about having a hard time breaking away from the constraints that have been put on you by what everyone and everything has taught you to believe.

You try to break away from those teachings and find you own, throw rocks at the walls they have created in your mind but it is hard, it doesn’t do much, those rocks are like spitballs.

It’s not this straight, organized wall that makes sense. You haven’t been told all lies. Some things are real, some are partly right but only when looked at or viewed at in particular ways. Other things are utterly wrong. Some things apply to some but not others. If I destroy it all where do I start over? If I don’t destroy it all what do I pick and choose? How do I take out all these wrong pieces and re-assemble it all in a way that is proper without all the right pieces?

I know this makes me happy, I know I enjoy doing this. So all I can do right now is try this with everything I have. I will keep searching for all the answers, the meanings, and the rest. This I know is good though and so I will give it everything I have in the hopes it helps me find everything I need.

It’s hard though because I have been wrong before and tried the wrong things. There’s risk, and time, and money. I don’t want to worry about all of that; I just want to do what I enjoy. I don’t have a choice though because while I am scared, I have no other options, I have to do this because there is currently nothing else to try. I can’t give up, even though I am terrified, so I will keep working and keep figuring the things out at the same time.

Analyzing the Lyrics of “Secrets” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”

I told you this would be coming soon! Analyzing the Lyrics of “Secrets” by The Recap Band, From the Album “Neon Milk”. Visit the website here: http://www.recapband.com/

Let’s do the first track, but before I dive into that, I need to discuss the album a bit. Everything in this post even when stated as if it sounds like a fact, is just my personal opinions.

The album itself has an overall theme of two aliens who have crash landed on earth, spend some time on land, leave, then come back. This is a metaphor for the artists themselves.

We all feel different at times from others in our lives. At times, we think about who we are, who the people around us are, the meaning of life. Perhaps because of your interests and hobbies or the way you approach life and what your goals are, society does not make you feel like you belong. Like… You are an alien.

Green Peace Alien


The title track “Secrets” is on the apparent front seemingly a song about these aliens who land on earth and they have all these secrets that people want from them. I think beyond that though this song is about a lot more.

The secrets referred to are a metaphor for something else. Their experiences, their life lessons, and how they have interpreted them. Also at the same time, it can mean the things they keep to themselves, the mask they wear in the day to day world to be more accepted. Let’s dive into the lyrics now.

Spy

(Chorus)

I’ve got a mind full of secrets
A whole mountainside full of causes and reasons

A whole mountainside full of causes and reasons is talking about the examination of yourself, others around you, the world, the meaning of the life the universe and everything. Past actions, regrets, future choices.

Shining my light inside the shadows

This line is talking about that self-reflection of oneself. Searching in your mind and the world around you, to look in places where others may not, to find answers.

The life that I live is just an echo, echo

The wearing of a mask, being different then you want to be so as to be more accepted by society. At stores, your job, wherever it is. Pretending to like sports, or wearing a polo when you are a t-shirt guy. Not talking about your latest hobby because since it’s not the in the thing you either fear being pushed away, judged, not understood.

Mask hood Red Eyes

(Verse 1)
Woa wait a minute how the hell did I get here
Think I need another minute just to let my head clear
Looks like I’m layin’ in some kinda bed, weird
Who are all these people dressed in white
With the red smeared on ‘em?
They say it was a smooth procedure
The specimen’s alive no signs of fever
Yup it’s breathing fine and it’s heart is beating normally
Nurse sedate it ‘cause when it wakes up it might get ornery

Our aliens crash here on earth and what happens? They are being taken apart and analyzed, trying to figure out what makes them tick. This translates into being judged, evaluated, and even others trying to change you because you are different.

penguin-surgeon-md

But you can’t corner me like that so I broke the straps
Haulin’ ass runnin’ fast nobody can hold me back
Comatose, I will never take another nap like that
Feelin’ kinda stiff I think I need somebody to crack my back
That’s how I escape the lab now I’m on a brand new planet
Still strugglin’ for a way to understand you, dammit
You say there’s nothing new but I’ma fill that deficit
Y’all humans didn’t know who in the fuck you were messin’ with

Choosing to break free and to be true to one’s self. To stop hiding from the world and instead to just be who you are. Still trying to understand everyone and everything around you but not giving up yourself while doing it. Ready to stand up and fight to be yourself.

chain-md

(Verse 2)
First contact I came across a farmhouse
Walk up slowly on the lawn with my arms out
Rockin’ back and forth on his chair turned his head to me
Spit a wad of black shit out then he said to me

Approaching people and the world in peace, while being who you are.

Green Alien Wizard

Evening to you neighbor you can can call me Mister Doe
My wife’s name is Jane all the kids have moved out though
Can you see my white fence there with all the pickets?
My truck’s pretty big too unlike my penis
But did I mention that my pension has a 401k?
My wife and I’ll retire in the Florida Keys?
(ahp) See you later neighbor that’s my dinner bell
Burgers and fries but first we’ll pray so we don’t go to hell

You find the rejection you fear of course, as that is why you always hid to begin with. The stereotypes in these verses, the 401K, the white picket fence, retiring to Florida. All these things and the other are to show that this is what the world expects of you. This is how I am, you’re the same right? You’re human because you want to be made from a cookie cutter mold and be just like the rest of us?

What the fuck is hell bitch?

(coughs) Could you watch the language?

Look I just need a cold beer and some kinda sandwich

Don’t you come closer or I’ll shoot!

You don’t have the grapes

Still took a shot, nice miss, I disapparate

You’re asking because you don’t understand. As a result, you are attacked, rejected, your not the same. Ignore it, don’t let it weigh you down, continue to be you, just do it elsewhere and don’t let people like this bring you down. If you do, they win. Don’t judge, don’t sink to their level, shrug it off and move on.

(Bridge)
Jane? Jane?!
What? Your dinner’s getting cold.
I just saw an alien.
What?!
I just saw an alien!
Are you drunk again?
(stutters) Dammit woman! Just get me the telephone!
(Dialing)
911, what’s your emergency?
Hello?! There’s aliens!
Excuse me, sir?
I said there’s goddamn aliens!
Sir, sir, please calm down.
Calm down? Don’t tell me to calm down! I was outside and this
martian came and started cussing at me and I tried to shoot, and he
disappeared! Call the police! No, call the army!!

The overreactions of people because they find you different. That need to call upon others like themselves or that pretend to be like them. To group up so that they may combine forces and get rid of you. So that they may feel better about themselves and that there is only their one answer.

That is the Recap for this song by Recap! Next time I will be doing the second song on the album Starship!

Until then, remember. Be Who and what you want to be, for yourself. Don’t do it for others and instead, take a chance. Live the life you want, treat others how you want to be treated, and you may find happiness brothers and sisters.
