Born for This Lyrics

Oh no, I just keep on falling
(Back to the same old)
And where's hope, when misery comes crawling
(Oh, my way, ay!)
With your faith, you'll trigger a landslide
To kill off this common sense of mine

It takes aquired minds to...

    Just one point you must consider into the prituce is the fact that European Music has been notated for several centuries while in the slave songs/spirituals/early Blues era the performance wasn't notated , there were some attempts at notating these style with CMT notation systems since the mid 19th century, but unfortunately it failed to capture the essence of that culture.Whenever there is no notation of musical style it means there is no search for linearity. European music was in the same situation before they had a notation system dedicated solely to their music. Unfortunately we still don't have a good system for old Blues music, probably we will never have, however, attempts at notating Blues music with CMT notations gave us modern Jazz music!

    'With your faith you'll trigger a landslide...to kill off this common sense of mine', I think that's about their fans, they feel like what they are doing is nuts but because the fans love them and have faith in them, they keep on trucking, even if it seems dismall.

    Like most of the songs on this album I think it's about pressure from record companies, producers, publists, everyone who's in charge.
    'It takes aquired minds to taste this wine' saying that their life isn't for everyone, 'you can't down it with you eyes, so we don't want your headlines' that seems like it's about tabloids, that they can't understand by following them around or watching them, so shut the hell up!

    I think the last part, 'okay so you think you're ready, okay then you say this with go, we were born for this' I think that is to everyone. Saying if you think this is so easy you try it, lie and say you were made for this. (they're being a little sarcastic there...heh-he).

    I think it means that the record labels were pressuring them to be perfect and popular but all they wanted was to sing. (We dont want your headlines...we just want the airwaves back) They know they're ready for it (We were born for this) but they dont like the pressure
