Your soul don't burn
You dark the sun you
Rain down fire on everyone
Scabs, police, government thieves
Venal psychic amputees
Parasitic you're syphilitic
Parasitic you're syphilitic

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

I'll vent my spleen I'll keep my dreams
My flesh, my bones, my soul, I own
My mind's a weapon immune from infection
Blood in my eyes, my vision is clear
Parasitic you're syphilitic
Parasitic you're syphilitic

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

I see your autosuggestion psychology
Elimination policy
A military industrial
Illusion of democracy

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

    it could be any scrupulous government construct, it's very ambiguous. i prefer it that way, otherwise it'd become way too dated.

    btw the live in japan version owns

    i read somewhere that this song was partially directed at then-us secretary of state madeline albright, and partially deriven from a hallucenation experience in which brian was screaming into a mirror.

    Yep. It has political content, Bobby is saying democracy doesn't have to be democratic at all If your country is lead by assholes.

    Actually boys and girls. the song is a rant against Isreal's government and their current policies. The title claims that the country has lost it's way from what it was originally formed from- a refuge for those who had escaped and suffered from the regime of the Nazis. Bobby is basically comparing Israel with their greatest enemy- the third Reich.

    An absolutely fantastic song, one i like to play on my iPod when I need pumping up before a difficult meeting.

    I thought the Isreal idea was interesting. There is potentially a strong reference to the plagues of Egypt which the Isrealites brought down upon Egypt to gain their freedom and create Isreal.

    Dark the sun was the 10th plague. Parasites was the 3rd plague. Syphillis was the 6th plague.

    All very biblical anyway. Perhaps Bobby was watching Indiana Jones and the link there to the bible, and the Nazi's having their eyes burnt out inspired the song!

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"

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.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
