Death of emotions
Birth of decay
Fight revolution
Grips the heart of men
Rising rebellion
Loosing control
Pure mental terror
Reformation needed to be

Raised to future awareness
Manipulation has failed
Rulers, leaders
Anarchy will prevail
Now, reinforced hate
Glowing, pulsate
Society failed

New generation awakes
Mental slavery, through erasure
Cause for your condition
Mind murdering parasites
Forced into suicide
Material safety, plastic saviors
Basis of possession
Rulers participate
Anarchist dominate
Infected by a virus promise of a better
Pay, conception of a master plan
Protectors of blind faith

Raise to new awareness
Individual way of life
A dated shit philosophy
Youth runs amok

Moloch masters, democrats
Diplomats, desperation
Criminal energy, part of the strategy
Focus distraction, pain infection
Manipulation failed
Misleading disharmony
Now only victory

Life becomes perfection, when the spark
Has almost died
Decades of endless darkness
Now embraced by shining light
Autonomous power,
Finally this war is won
Golden days of anarchy
The new age has begun

Moloch masters, democrats
Diplomats, desperation
Criminal energy, part of the strategy
Focus distraction, pain infection
Manipulation failed
Misleading disharmony
Now only victory

Life becomes perfection, when the spark
Has almost died
Decades of endless darkness,
Now embraced by shining light
Autonomous power,
Finally this war is won
Golden day of anarchy
The new age has begun

Fear of the future
Hope for the past
Hymns of enslavement
Forever laid to rest
Elders tomorrow
Youth of today
Choice for a changing
Better world needed to be

Raised to future awareness
Manipulation has failed
Rulers leaders
Anarchy will prevail now

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
