World, wake up, can't you see what's goin' on
We all live in sin and say the other man is wrong
But yo, in the '80s, this world is out of hold
'Cause man hates himself, but he loves the battlezone

Ignorance is on the loose
The color of my skin could put my neck in a noose
Yo, my brain is haunted from the hate and violence
And everywhere I rock I see they take a code of silence

Said in the Bible that my Savior died
Yet other than me, they say the Lord has lied
People walkin' like zombies, they never know
What they're doin', what they're seein',

what they're hearin', where they're goin'
It seems to me that the nature of man
Is to abolish all the knowledge that he can understand
Livin' with Lucifer, yo, you better cease
'Cause it's all about peace

Wise but still wonderin', all of the blunderin'
My soul is drenched in blood and the sky is thunderin'
Subject to all discrepancies
Is a man who chooses his enemies

[unknown] all the blessings or the color of his shirt
My enemy is chosen when a animal is hurt
The honor of the tiger can destroy the man
But he fights to the death till he cannot stand

Satan has prophets such as Hitler
We use human flesh to paint a picture
So many died, so many cried
By a German maniac, is to live out a lie

[unknown] warrior magic of a ?magician?
Producin' death, the nuclear technician
Man disrespects his woman and whose mind is fair
Are the only ones who speak and show that they care

Others turn their heads and they say it's a shame
But they live in a ???? so tell me who's to blame
You're livin' with Lucifer, yo, you better cease
It's all about peace

In 1984 the devil opened the door
For the next 7 years the Earth he shall explore
King Jr., a noble man who believed in peace
Must have thought he was wrong, so his life had to cease

Hate is a necessity and love is a choice
Men are persecuted if they choose to voice
Their opinion, see, the world's so opinionated
This is fact, not fiction that I just stated

Don't know it all, but understand a lot
Boy is playin' in the sand and in his head he's shot
By another brother who had brought the tool
He was robbin' a sister for her dookie gold

Children subjected to satanic rituals
Run demonic ways which they make habitual
Spend a million dollars on a Super Bowl
Meanwhile a child is starvin' only three years old

Classy anglosaxons, filthy white trash
Dancin jiggaboos, high yellow ass
Seems that the world is so stereotypical
We turn on our own, that's somewhat hypocritical

You're livin' with Lucifer, boy, you better cease
It's all about peace

And all we are sayin', my brothers
Is give peace a chance

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.

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”

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,

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."

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.
