Clues in His Lyrics

  • on: April 30, 2018, 07:46:10 AM
I thought it would be a good idea to collect clues in this thread that we can find amongst  MJ's body of work.
Whether from interviews, lyrics or his  life, this is a good place to collect them.
I'm starting off with his song 'Xcape'

The title track of Michael Jackson's posthumous Xscape album, this was gleaned from the 2001 sessions for the King of Pop's Invincible album. The song was written by the singer with Rodney Jerkins, who produced a portion of the LP. It is the only tune on the record to have been modernised by the man who wrote it in the first place.
The track starts with a brief skit, where someone (presumably Michael) has 'xscaped' from a prison. Jackson then proceeds to touch on his favorite topics of freedom and individuality.

"Why is it I can't do whatever I want to when it's my personal life and I don't live for you?
"I got to get away, so I can free my mind."

Michael is reacting to the barrage of media criticism he was getting at the time. He was stating its his personal life and he can do what he wants.

It wasn't as well known because it didn't make the cut for the Invincible album and just went into MJ's vault of unreleased work. [ Though it was leaked online] The Estate cobbled together another album released in 2014 I think that was the year, and named it Xcape with this track being the title track from it.

There are other interesting tracks on that album also. One in particular is 'A Place With No Name". This track has always made me think of Stranger In Moscow where MJ says the line in the lyric -- take my name and just let me be. -- Which is what the Estate has the licence and rights of really. All merchandising and image / name / music ect.....the Estate handles now. They took his name, and are still making a load of money off it, and just let him be.
Anyhow, here's A Place With No Name.

One of my favorites and definitely a hoax song i.m.o.

I'm the floor when you fall, and when you scream it's 'cause of me
I'm the living dead, the dark thoughts in your head
I know just what you said
That's why you've got to be threatened by me

You think you're by yourself, but it's my touch you felt
I'm not a ghost from Hell, but I've got a spell on you
In one blink I'll disappear, and then I'll come back to haunt you
I'm telling you, when you lie under a tomb
I'm the one watching you
That's why you got to be threatened by me

What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare.
It isn't. It's the beginning.
