Every little step we take breaks the dreams
Of a warm pig itching to re-stitch the seams

Namsayin, when I walk, I want to break concrete!

Ox'll spit some shit that'll reflect off the mirror
My light beams are mad bright,
They stay clever
Yo challenge an Ox member,

Get a vow severed
Found your body in the desert (scavenger's dessert)
Yeah yeah I rap tight like Saran
Plus enter battles talkin' shit like

'Look mom, no hands!'
I'm tired of cats tryin' to sum me
You can't add that far yet,
That counting is far fetched

I treat MC like canines
Throwin' words at they face
To see if they bite when they catch
I told you my poetry sponsors Gillette

Now you standing there
Wit razors in your head like barrettes
Man, if the mic had ass cheeks
The sticker in my hand

Would say priority seating
And man, I dunno if it was me or you
But your girl was on my dick like she was teethin'
You play the role/roll,

I'll play the poppy seed on top of you
The godspeed is actual,
That doesn't mean I act usual
One of the first emcees to give

The crowd full attention
'Cause you need love and affection

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others,
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between
The walkers and the sleepers

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others,
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between
The walkers and the sleepers

I boogie with picket-a-vision,
Carbon based stickler
City piss aroma,
Therapy coma, clone sitter
Itching to pigeon hole villain soul magnet
Feelings activate
Passionate the germ,
And the book met the worm
I hold a book of matches captive to flashin'
For some need flat line
Be a thick fatigue episode,
Brewed in batches
Flirted curse at perked nurse,
Broken skeleton patches
One muddy veteran collapsed
The untapped resource center
Housing style pageants
My little limbs lassoed catered to wings
While mankind's baby steps
Break dirt and demon

I know a crossbreed strung well in the key of
Mass times weight times tame semantics
Encompassing that which splits lips
But never supply and demand it
To hell wit plastic, ooh yeah it's splendid
Tap it on the shoulder,
Grab it, tag it, apprehend it
Lend it to the devil of a friend it,
Wrench it back, mend it again
It still never renders suspended
But finicky picket fences
Now every toy dreams to manufacture hearts
Start with the diving parts and the blueprints
You follow the precedence
Set by war pigs of a yesteryear
Let the tears pray
Skip a stone over the reservoir
To shake the whole charade
Hmm gun play the tumors platoon
I couldn't see
I fell asleep holding an Appleseed,
Woke up holding a tree
The only bridge I ever burned
Along this legacy at dance
Was the one that linked
The cities of Prosperity and Chance

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others,
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between
The walkers and the sleepers

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others,
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between
The walkers and the sleepers

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"

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.

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."

Magical
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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
