Song Meanings

Does anyone have any insight as to what some of the songs from Pre-Fear of God are about. Some I get, but most I don't.

All the songs on a/n correspond with the story. Naked lunch is about someone who abuses drugs. Pachycephalosaurus is written about someone who lives an excessive life and calls attention to herself. Your owls are hooting, oh emetatophobia, and sing me to sleep are love songs written about joshs wife. Centipede sisters is about a group of rumor spreading sisters. Dinosaur bones is about the other members of showbread changing joshs songs to something he wasn't intending. Age of reptiles is inspired by the reference to satan as a serpent and because of our fallen nature, we are all reptiles. Dead by dawn is about the evil dead. Mouth like a magazine is about gossip. sampsa meets Kafka is about the metamorphosis. The missing wife is about a man who's wife died. Welcome to plainfield tobe hooper is about the typical Christians response to the media. And the smokers and children shall be cast down is about two members asked to leave the band. stabbing art to death is about using art to glorify God instead of the artist. Dissonance of discontent is about showbread. The bell jar is about the madness that takes place in the band.

And the smokers and the children will be cast down is about how Josh hates me for smoking.

The thought of that is so depressing.....I need a cigarette......

Clayton left out so much!
What to Ask Yourself Before You Die is about the question that you thing that you should ask yourself before you die, Your Friends Are Fake is about fake friendships, I Had Music In My Heart, but Now My Heart Is Broken is about stabbing art to death, Killing Myself is about suicide, The Sad Thing About Sunday Morning is about church, Cry for Help is about crying and people helping someone, Where We Begin and I End is about gang violence in Compton, The Pursuit of Happiness is about Will Smith, A Better World is about Jupiter, I Want to Get Married is about divorce, I Am a Machine Gun is about being an Autobot, My Heart Is Yours is about Indiana Jones, Stabbing Art to Death is about murdering musicians
