Le clan des rues les clandestins
Le cri des chiens hurlent à la ronde
J'suis pas inscrit sur la mappemonde
Y a pas d'pays pour les vauriens
Les poètes et les baladins
Y a pas d'pays
Si tu le veux
Prends le mien

Que Paris est beau quand chantent les oiseaux
Que Paris est laid lorsqu'il se croit français

Avec ses sans-papirs
Qui vont bientôt r'partir
Vers leurs pays les chiens
On a tout pris chez eux y a plus rien

De rétention en cale de fond
J'en ai même oublié mon ombre
Je promène moi dans vos décombres
On m'a donné un bout de rien
J'en ai fait cent mille chemins
J'en ai fait cent
J'en ai fait un

Un chemin de l'identité
L'iditenté l'idétitan
L'y tant d'idées à la ronde
Et dans ce flot d'univériens
J'aurai plus d'nom j'aurai plus rien
Dis moi c'est quand tu reviens
Que Paris est beau quand chantent les oiseaux
Que Paris est laid lorsqu'il se croit français

Avec tous ces champs d'tir
Et tous ces fous du tir
Y visent pas que les lapins
C'est plus du gros sel
C'est des tomawaks
Ou des missiles sol-air
Ou des skuds
Et moi avec mon pistolet en bouchon
Je pars au front

Paris sera beau quand chantera les oiseaux
Paris sera beau si les oiseaux
Mais non Paris sera beau car les oiseaux

Paris sera beau.

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
