America Lyrics - Razorlight

Review The Song (22)



What a drag it is
The shape i'm in
Well I go out somewhere
Then I come home again

I light a cigarette
'Cause I can't get no sleep
Theres nothing on the TV nothing on the radio
That means that much to me

All my life
Watching America
All my life
There's panic in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh
There's trouble in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh

Yesterday was easy
sponsored links
Happiness came and went
I got the movie script
But I don't know what it meant

I light a cigarette
'Cause I can't get no sleep
Theres nothing on the TV nothing on the radio
That means that much to me
Theres nothing on the TV nothing on the radio
That I can believe in

All my life
Watching America
All my life
There's panic in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh
There's trouble in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh
There's panic in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh

Yesterday was easy
Yes I got the news
When you get it straight, but stand up you just can't lose
Give you my confidence, all my faith in life

Dont stand me up
Don't let me down
I need you tonight
To hold me, say you'll be here
To hold me, say you'll be here
To hold me, say you'll be here
To hold..

All my life
Watching America
All my life
There's panic in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh
she's lost in America
Oh Oh Oh, Oh

Tell me how does it feel?
Tell me how does it feel?
Tell me how does it feel?
Tell me how does it feel?

Europe | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/13

Louplo,

Europe is not a country, it's a continent. The blue flag with golden stars is from the European Union, which isn't a county as well; it's a economic and political union (hence the name 'Union')of different European countries. Learn some shit before you start yelling.

tss | Reviewer: louplo | 6/17/13

Okay, person beneath my comment...
What if all of Europe starts singing songs about how Europe is the greatest nation ever on this planet and we would be waving our blue/gold star flag in every movie we make and put it in our classrooms and teach our childeren that: outside Europe... the world is shit!
Let's see how much the US en the rest of the world likes us then... If you dont get it, then dont talk about it. We are talking about nations, not about individuals. We are talking how 'groups of people' act... not how a single human would act at any given time. It's called generalisation and it's logics.. It works and it is of vital for our survival. Generalisation makes things understandable and if it works, why wouldnt we... If you feel so bad about the horrible name your nation has, you shouldnt vote for assholes. Every nation gets the Government it deserves and its obvious what the US deserved to have. A nationalistic ( c.q. dangerous) bunch of powerhungry rich guys. You shouldnt blame the observer for seeing the drawing you drew. You guys have the worst PR of the entire planet and you blame us for not liking you.. get outa here.

Such hatred toward a group..... | Reviewer: Joyce-in America | 5/13/13

Wow! I am saddened to see this anti-American attitude from the people on this site. I am an American and think that this hatred toward an entire country of people is quite ignorant yet you call us all ignorant. I'll bet you that if we met we'd like each other and get along quite well. Have you been to the United States? How are you drawing this conclusion? We're a country of proud, hard-working and friendly people, much like your country. Open your minds and stop the hate.

America's Taking Over | Reviewer: Larissa | 1/3/12

I think this song reflects that Britain is influenced by America a lot. I mean kids channels for example - there's the british channels, cbbc and citv and cbeebies but then there's nickelodeon, disney channel cinemagic and various others. But then again, Britain is multicultural, there are different takes on it.

Dissemination of Culture | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/11

I think this song clearly addresses frustration with the overbearingness of Americanism, pushing against the United Kingdom especially, to an extent that it occludes the native culture. The feature of the song that there's nothing on the TV or nothing on radio that means anything to the narrator indicates a lack of relation to the material. Yet, all his life he's been watching event after event in the United States, as if its somehow relevant.

We're all American | Reviewer: Natalia | 11/13/10

I interpretate this song as showing a feeling of being conected to Americas problems, even though you might not even be American. I well remember the fear we all had when 9/11 happened. Not because of terrorism but because of the threat of a 3. world war

S'all good. | Reviewer: Brickabrak | 7/7/08

The song is about the negativity spread by the american government to keep the population neatly in the corner not questioning what they're told. Fear tactics.But it's also used as a form of distraction, kind of like a magician confuses you with the one hand and performs with the other.The song supposedly suggested that the persona has fallen into this trap not even expirincing it's life anymore but soully intranced by the media even though it means nothing to it. She's lost in america, i would guess refers to to a female wanting to be so much like what the media is 'telling' her she should be. The persona's loneliness is due to lack of love shown from anywhere else than a lover, which is lost in america. Just an opinion...

Lance's interpretation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/29/08

So what do you folks think on this ... The bloke is fed up with a dead-end life and can just see it all meaninglessly revolving around the Telly which just dictatorially feeds a constant stream of this America-centric world. He can't even figure out his own life, not even understanding yesterday's events even if it were written out in replay before him. What is he doing buying into all this stuff, but he just can't seem to help it. How does it feel? Surely someone else out there feels the same. Well at least the bloke is honest.

You know, we are all so darn "comfy" and locked into our own worlds - someone give us something to live for - to die for!!

candykane | Reviewer: peter | 11/28/07

I am now relieved that I have read the lyrics to the song.
The end verse I could not make out. I thought he was singing something like 'to madison field' but instead it's 'tell me how does it feel'. I can sing it ALL the wat through now!!!

It's cool, leave it alone! | Reviewer: Jess | 8/6/07

Yeah ok, so the lyrics don't mean anything but it's a great song with a great tune, which is very catchy, I'm not ashamed to admit that I sing along everytime I hear it and it's been out for ages now! It's undoubtably the best ever song by Razorlight!! ;-)

a german state: | Reviewer: xeni6008 | 7/19/07

Das Picking ist ziemlich geil, deshalb wird man wohl auch schnell auf den Song aufmerksam. Inhaltliche Diskussionen sind wohl unausweichlich, aber meiner meiner Meinung nach wird hier bewusst die ambige Deutung 'Amerika' eingesetz, um den Hörer im unklaren zu lassen. Allerdings weist das Ende "shes lost in america" stark auf den femine Interpretationsrichtung.
Insgesamt ein gutes Lied, zum immer-wieder-hören!

obviousely, no? | Reviewer: TrioLo | 7/5/07

well, for me, it seems obviousely, it's about tv in america, spreading panic all the day, only pointing out the bad things, the tragedies, terror, war, murder, rape, bad songs, drunk idiots driving car, ending in jail and being relezed some days after and ignorant snobs that don't see that all the world is laughing about those who think they're something special, better, more enlighted but stupid and ignorant wanne-be humans :-)

but anyway, the song is great and the meaning is nothings special, only describing an average tv-addicted trioLo.
