Gogol Bordello Lyrics
Combining elements of punk, gypsy music, and Brecht-ian
cabaret, Gogol Bordello tells the story of New York's
immigrant diaspora through debauchery, humor, and surreal
costumes. Leader and singer Eugene Hütz's taste in music
was spun out of black-market tapes of the Birthday Party
and Einstürzande Neubauten in his native Ukraine. After
being evacuated to Western Ukraine in 1986 following the
Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical,
outsider qualities of gypsy music. Living as a refugee in
Poland, Hungary, Austria, More...

Review about Gogol Bordello songs
Purple is the colour of sensuality and meaning... | Reviewer: Chris Marks------ About the song Start Wearing Purple performed by Gogol Bordello
The story relates to the fact that a purple mood is that of acceptance and deep sensuality: as it relates to spirituality and self awareness which, typically and regrettably, only happens with maturity. It typically connotes a deep-seated sensuality underlying - and the result of - intimacy, and yet superficially is equated with sex/sensuality in an immature context. The connection of purple and sex, however, is well known in many cultures, harking to royalty and the pursuit of happiness, pleasure and sensual awareness. See also why purple and the Catholic church are associated....
thinking out of the box | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
i also think that this song is about thinking out of the box since it's the only solution to be an individual as it says
"And as the upperdog leisurely sighing
The local cultures are dying and dying
The programmed robots are buying and buying
And all secluded freaks they are still trying trying"
it's obviousy a description of our western culture where capitalism and consume make us too brainless robots following our god: money, sex, comfort stop thinking ourselves and believe what they tell us.
It's agreat song with a true message that should wake up everyone who listens to or reads it
You always have to make your own fun | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
This song is defined through this line which was beautifully featured in the movie. It suggests that whether you go underground or through the roof there's no difference you always have to make your own fun. peace.
bad ass | Reviewer: Jeff------ About the song Illumination performed by Gogol Bordello
I'm just a 15 year old kid but I believe this is one of the few bands that if anything speaks from there heart. This song also completely amazing and has total don't listen to the man mojo stuff which is pretty cool.
Globalization | Reviewer: James------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
I think the song is not about depression nor suicide and it's not an introspective song about fellings and stuff. what I see is a song about culture across the countries. it talks about globalization and how the regionals cultures are fadding; the great multinacional fast-foods and stores homogenizes the world and besides becaming the world more connected it also kills what makes each people unique.
Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
This song isn't about suicide, I can't find anything in the lyrics that would suggest that. Yes, it's in wristcutters (great movie) but so what, it doesn't define the song.
This song is about culture. It's about feeling trapped by it and trying to run from it, and realizing no matter where you go it's all the same. Each country puts up a facade to try to appear to be different or better but in reality everyone is trying to escape it, just to realize the grass isn't greener on the other side. One day the conceptual barriers will come down and we'll stop pretending to be better then each other and learn to empathize with each other because we're all in the same boat.
My statement above can also be applied to people and families..
fun | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
I think "through the roof n underground" is a reference to Dostoevsky's "notes from underground" where the underground used as a place to symbolize solitude and depression, then through the roof is meaning going insane, perhaps similer to the insane/depressed anti-hero in "notes from underground".
Through the roof | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
The heart os the 1st organ formed on conception. The brain and other organs and limbs form from the heart.
As Jung said, the real problems of life are not solved but rather transcended.
So to me the song speaks to addressing the problems of the set traps by growing a heart so big it swallows all the traps.
Gog | Reviewer: Kodi------ About the song Through The Roof 'N' Underground performed by Gogol Bordello
The local cultures dying refers to a starbucks popping up on every block or walmart taking over small towns. when we cross the border between countries and states we see there's no difference between them because chains have taken them all over where we choose familiarity over new experiences. We fear change. However there are a small load of freaks still trying to be unique. When the silver rabbits go to the country that we only know it shows that we can change our perspective to view the world as we see fit. Even if everything is going to hell we can still find joy and love. I think it's about changing your perspective to change depression into excitement.
I love this song | Reviewer: Jonfen------ About the song Start Wearing Purple performed by Gogol Bordello
There's something about gogols style that just makes me love them so much. One thing that's kind of depressing is that I like other peoples perception of what the song says more than the real reason hahaha oh well. It's got it's make believe metaphors!
