Stupid on the Steinway So sick upon a steinway The sailors drown See them talk and see them drown And see them drink and fall around Upon the floor Sister of mine, home again Sister of mine, home again Lonely in a crowded room The radio plays out of tune So silently The radio upon the floor Is stupid it plays Aznavour So out of key Sister of mine home again Sister of mine home again Broken on a ship of fools Even dreams must fall to rules So stupidly Words are all just useless sound Just like cards they fall around And we will be Sister of mine home again Sister of mine home again Buy a car and watch it rust Sister see them fall to dust They fall around In another crowded room Paint me like the shirt I'm in Honestly Sister of mine, home again Sister of mine, home again Sister of mine Sister of mine Sister of mine Sister of mine Sister Edit Lyrics Edit Wiki Add Video.
Sister Europe song meanings. Sister Europe - The Psychedelic Furs - The Psychedelic Furs your thoughts 6 Comments. General Comment I think Butler mentioned in an interview that it was written about his girlfriend at the time who was always jetsetting about Europe, he never knew where she'd be one day from the next. There was an error. FolsomFred To really get any of the songs on the Sister Europe - The Psychedelic Furs - The Psychedelic Furs album, I think you have to listen to all of the other songs.
Cars (Numanoid Mix) - Fear Factory - Hatefiles "fall around" part gets used multiple times in this song, and it also appears in other songs. So does falling to dust, being alone in a crowded room, people painting each other… So, what does it all mean? I don't think Butler himself even knew. He had a swirl of imagines in his head since he was 14, and he was trying to find the songs they fit in, and many of them turned out to fit in multiple songs.
They all manage to convey what's going on in his head even if you can't understand them. The world is stupid his favorite word on this album in a way he can easily recognize but can't explain clearly, so he has to come at it from different angles. And it doesn't work at all literally, but somehow it works anyway. And maybe that's all that matters. Flag falcotron on September 05, General Comment i first heard the foo fighters cover of this, i think its a cool song.
No Replies Log in to reply. General Comment I think it is about the continent of Europe. I think a lot of the song is from the point of view of the land. Europe is seeing all these people Sister Europe - The Psychedelic Furs - The Psychedelic Furs stupid things and acting out their petty, futile dramas.
Europe is there the whole time through many generations and sees the same mistakes being made over and over and how everyone dies with nothing to show for it and everything eventually falls to dust. I think the person is calling Europe "sister of mine" The Beatles - A Hard Days Night he sometimes steps back and sees the big picture and starts to identify with things that are less transitory like the land which could represent the eternal witness or something.
When he does this he feels like he's home. I think this song is related to their song Highwire Days I think it's called. Both songs seem to express seeing more clearly and "seeing through the games we play" to quote the other song I Nje mo na mene no na - Emile Kangue - Sele Dutea mentioned.
General Comment I love the song and the video clip. General Comment "even dreams must fall to rules". Rate These Lyrics. Log in now to add this track to your mixtape!
