We want it all
We want it now
We move so fast
We can't slow down
We can't get off this merry-go-round.

Everybody wants more time, love and money
Never satisfied no matter how much
'Cause even if we had more time, love and money
It would never be enough
Everybody wants a piece of the action
But when you add the pieces all up
Funny how that time love and money
It wouldn't be enough.

We work our fingers to the bone
Computers, faxes, beepers, phones
We'll sleep the day, we're dead and gone.

Everybody wants more time, love and money
Never satisfied no matter how much
'Cause even if we had more time, love and money
It would never be enough
Everybody wants a piece of the action
But when you add the pieces all up
Funny how all that time, love and money
It wouldn't be enough.

On Sunday we kneel down and pray
Oh, please forgive our selfish ways
Come Monday were back in the race.

Everybody wants more time, love and money
Never satisfied no matter how much
Cause even if we had more time, love and money
It would never be enough
Everybody wants a piece of the action
But when you add the pieces all up
Funny how all that time, love and money
It wouldn't be enough.

Funny how all that time, love and money
Just wouldn't be enough
Wouldn't be enough
Wouldn't be enough
No...

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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,

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
