Japanese Cartoon Lyric Meanings?

    So I've been listening to the Japanese Cartoon album for awhile, and I really like some of the songs on there (tracks 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 are in every playlist I make)...

     

    But I'm wondering what the lyrics of the songs actually mean? I can somewhat understand some parts, but I cant say there is a full song that I actually understand lol. Metaphor overload =)

     

    Is there anywhere that analyzed the lyrics of the JC songs?

I always assumed airplanes under the ground to mean secret war manoeuvres like brain-washing and stuff that's used by the establishment in place of real force. "Fireworks don't make a sounnnnd" The whole album has a punk, rebel feel to it.
