In the darkest tunnel, it's nice to see a light,
Not just a headlight,
Like the one that's heading right for me.
It would be nice if things could turn out right,
Turn out right yeah,
Don't think I'll ever see the day.

I must have done something wrong,
Or maybe pissed off God.

I think of Chinese food when I think of life,
That's sweet and sour,
My life is sweet as saccharine.
You know 3 week old milk and grapes are not,
Not the same, No,
I am the one Johnny Carcinogen.

I must have fucked with some witch,
In turn she cursed me, cursed my life.

At the end of the longest line,
That's where I will always be,
If you need to find me, just go to,
The end of the longest line.

But officer that was a yellow light,
The light was red, son,
Insubordination, reckless driving,
I must be wrong, this can't be right,
I don't belong, this world is much to dangerous,
For someone lacking luck, like me.

At the end of the longest line,
That's where I will always be,
If you need to find me, just go to,
The end of the longest line.

At the end of the longest line,
That's where I will always be,
At the end of the longest, line.

    This is el hefe making fun of fat mike and trying (and succeeding) to prove he is a superior musician to him. at the beginning he intentionally screws up by saying "be the same, i mean see the day" and then impersonates axl rose at the end. this song is a very good reason why nofx rules, too bad they don't play it live.

    El hefe, a better musician than Mike? First off I don't think that there's good or bad in music, but if you really wanna look at it that way, they don't play the same instruemnt. Also, Mike made most of their songs(as in guitar also).

    I thought it was an earlier version of the longest line when Mike's voice couldn't handle the key and strains a lot and then El Hefe makes fun of him at the very end

    Praps not

    El hefe is a far more superior musician compared to fat mike, he used to be in mark curry band (his step brother by the way) .

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
