Ridiculous Swedish Lyric of the Day 88: The Sign by Ace of Base
“I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign. Life is demanding without understanding. I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign. No one’s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong. But where do you belong?” Ace of Base, The Sign
I saw the sign, too, Ace of Base, and the sign said: “Stop.”
This song borders on making sense a few times. Some dude treated this lady pretty bad, I get that. Then the chorus brings the weirdness. Life is demanding without understanding. But shit, its not like life is all hummus and tootsie rolls with understanding either. And then, what is all this crap about being dragged up and into light? What fucking light are you talking about? Why do some people belong in light and some don’t? What the fuck is “the sign” anyways? And why does every Swedish rock group get compared to Abba?
Oh, I actually just did see “the sign” and it said, “Best if Used by 1994.”
