C'est comme la fin du siècle
On aura tout compris
Même les shérifs, ceux qu'on achète
On les distingues mal des bandits, on a tout eu
Ce fut un siècle formidable quelques malentendus
Seulement des histoires, des histoires
Garde les yeux ouverts que tout y passe au moins
Chéri, donne pour la paix car moi je veux que tout aille bien
C'est comme ces fumées rouge-oranges
Des rubans qui s'étranglent autour de mon cou
C'est étrange, on pourrait brûler
Aah, avaler
Le grand déversoir des images cyniques à boire à plein tube
Cathodique, allez, attendez-moi
J'avais envie de venir aussi mais voyez-vous ça va trop vite
N'allez pas si vite
Mon vieux numéro
Y'avait les drapeaux du grand soir
Y'en avait des rouges, y'en avait des noirs, aussi loin
Que je me souvienne, loin
Quand les missiles montaient tout droit

Au ciel
Nous on veut de la vie
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps, longtemps
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps

Il y a qu'on nous prépare à une énième révolution
D'ordre spectaculaire, venez voir
Des réseaux résolu à câbler l'infini et l'univers
Vibrionnant de mille éclairs
Aujourd'hui, acclamez s'il vous plait l'homme nouveau
On verra bien, si il est plus beau et pour un jour de gloire
Il n'y a pas de place pour le doute
En cas d'échec ou de déroute on pourra toujours s'adresser aussi

Au ciel
Nous on veut de la vie
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps, longtemps
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps

Enclenchez la fonction mémoire
Il faut produire et reproduire encore ça n'a pas de fin
Que ce soient tes veines
Ou des circuits d'ordinateur en pleine possession de nos moyens
À chacun te prière, ta nouvelle aube mystique
Et pas le temps pour qu'on s'explique
Allez, ouvrez les royaumes et crevez les plafonds
Il y a des chances pour qu'on nous expédie

Au ciel
Nous on veut de la vie
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps longtemps
Longtemps, longtemps, longtemps

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,
