Song Lyric Dissections: Miracles by Insane Clown Posse

You know it! The Juggalos are going to be pissed. By reading the replies on the SNL parody on Youtube by them, it appears they cannot take a joke. They take their rapper Kiss ripoffs VERY seriously.

If you've never heard this song or seen the video, you might want to so before you read this dissection.  This is the original video:

Here is the SNL parody:

This song is ridiculous. I don't even really have to do much to make fun of it. They do a pretty good job on their own. Its their attempt to be DEEP. Well, its deep all right, but not the kind of deep they were hoping for.


Verse: If magic is all we've ever know
Then it's easy to miss what really goes on
But I've seen miracles in every way
And I see miracles everyday

Commentary: Sure, life itself is a miracle, but ICP decided to label other things as miracles. Read on! 

Verses: Oceans spanning beyond my sight
And a million stars way above em at night
We don't have to be high to look in the sky
And know that's a miracle opened wide

Commentary: Its not really a miracle considering the earth is 3/4 water. Still, not a bad verse. Nothing weird...yet.

Verse: Look at the mountains, trees, the seven seas
And everything chilling underwater, please
Hot lava, snow, rain and fog
Long neck giraffes, and pet cats and dogs

Commentary: Ok, you've repeated yourself. You've already talked about oceans, and I gave you that one, but mentioning the 7 seas is essentially the same thing. Hot lava, snow, rain and fog are all part of nature. Not necessarily a miracle. Long neck giraffes are not a miracle. A SHORT neck giraffe would be a miracle though. As for pet cats and dogs, How can you call that a miracle? Dogs have been mans best friend since the caveman days. Cats have been worshiped before in ancient Egypt. How is it a miracle that we have them as pets? 

Verse: And I've seen eighty-five thousand people
All in one room, together as equals
Pure magic is the birth of my kids
I've seen shit that'll shock your eyelids

Commentary: I guess 85k people all in one room would be a miracle if they came to an ICP concert. I didn't realize there were even that many ICP fans in the world, let alone one city! But they didn't say they saw 85k people at an ICP concert, so maybe they went to a Bon Jovi concert. 85k people in a stadium? I could see that. And, thats definitely not a miracle!

Verse: The sun and the moon, and even Mars
The Milky Way and fucking shooting stars
UFOs, a river flows
Plant a little seed and nature grows

Commentary: Is it necessary to throw the F bomb in that line? Seriously. You know what would be a miracle? A rap song that wasn't loaded with F bombs. UFOs haven't been proven yet, but if they were, it still wouldn't be a miracle. Want to know how rivers flow? Its because of gravity. Not a miracle. Planting seeds, I'll give you that one, but we already covered nature. And, it isn't nature that grows from a seed. Its a plant or tree. I guess if nature did really grow, that could be considered a miracle because no one has defined nature as one specific thing.

Verse: Niagara falls and the pyramids
Everything you believed in as kids
Fucking rainbows after it rains
there's enough miracles here to blow your brains

Commentary: Waterfalls are not miracles. Its due to gravity. The river flows, then comes to a cliff. What else did you expect to happen? I suppose you're talking about the Easter Bunny and such. They don't exist! So, how could they be miracles?? And, The way rainbows form is not a miracle. They are formed by light through moisture in the air. Unless you believe something else like this lady: 

 But, I guess it would be a miracle if you DID manage to actually *uck a rainbow though. 

Verse: I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away
And music is magic, pure and clean
You can feel it and hear it but it can't be seen

Commentary: How is feeding a fish to a pelican a miracle? I've done it many times! And, I've even seen one snatch a cell phone from someone. Did I witness a miracle here? If I did, please let me know! And what do you expect music to look like? Actually, you CAN see it. Here's how! But, I seriously doubt they have ever seen sheet music before. 

Chorus: Music is all magic
(Are you a believer in miracles)
You can't even hold it
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it's just there in the air
(Are you a believer in miracles)
Pure motherfucking magic Right?
This shit'll blow your fucking mind
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)

Commentary: Pure *ucking magic! Yep! I notice and recognize miracles every day! The fact that people take ICP seriously is a *ucking miracle! And, yes. It DOES blow my mind that ICP even sat down and thought out these lyrics.

Verse: Music is a lot like love, it's all a feeling
And it fills the room, from the floor to the ceiling
I see miracles all around me
Stop and look around, it's all astounding

Commentary: mmm hmmm. I think a little hit of acid might make me see things the way ICP does.

Verse: Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?
And I don't wanna talk to a scientist
Y'all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed

Commentary: Clown guys! Come on! Here's how magnets work And it doesn't really take a scientist to explain how magnets work. You might have to read a book though, which could take a miracle.

Verse: Solar eclipse, and vicious weather
Fifteen thousand Juggalos together

Commentary: Solar eclipse? How is that a miracle? The moon gets in between...Ahh, forget it. ICP might think I was a lying scientist. 15k juggalos together is a miracle? Yep. ICP said it not me!

Verse: And I love my mom for giving me this
Time on this planet, taking nothing for granted

Commentary: Birth is a miracle. Gotta give you that one, but you DO take things for granted. They're called BOOKS! How do I know ICP doesnt read books? I've already explained it. Did you read this dissection? ;)

Verse: I seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly
Miracles ain't nothing to lie

Commentary: Another one I'll give you. But what does 'aint nothing to lie' mean???

Verse: Shaggy's little boys look just like Shaggy
And my little boy looks just like daddy

Commentary: Your boys look like your daddy? Am I the only one here who finds that line to be a little strange??

I think it would be a miracle if these girls could name 10 ICP songs.

Verse: Miracles each and every where you look
And nobody has to stay where they put

Commentary: WHAT? Nobody has to stay where they put WHAT??? It seems like ICP wanted to rhyme the word 'look' and used the word 'put.' It doesn't rhyme, but there have been other lines in this song that didn't even come close to rhyming. Why start now?

Verse: This world is yours for you to explore
there's nothing but miracles beyond your door
The Dark Carnival is your invitation
To witness that without explanation
Take a look at this fine creation
And enjoy it better with appreciation

Oh great. They gotta plug the album in a song? Question: If they already bought the album, why would you need to plug it on a song that's ON the album???

verse: Crows, ghosts, the midnight coast
The wonders of the world, mysteries the most
Just open your mind, and it ain't no way
To ignore the miracles of every day

Commentary: Get me a gun! There ain't no doubt...You might as well shoot me when the beer runs out!

Chorus: (Are you a believer in miracles)
Magic everywhere in this bitch
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it's all around you, you don't even know it
(Are you a believer in miracles) Shit's crazy
(Do you notice and recognize miracles,
So many miracles, the magic miracles)

Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracle

Commentary: Yo Yo Yo, Awwww Yeah Boyyeee! Recognize these miracles, Bitch! Recognize them or I'll smack you upside your head with a hammerhead Shark! How did the shark live with a hammer in its head??? Its another miracle!

Its a miracle this dissection only took 30 minutes.

Fucking minutes..How do they work??

My head hurts now. I need a doctor.
