She's got the personality of Darth Vader
And the mentality of a sixth grader
I better get her now, while I still hate her
The way I hated you
While she still just a hole to crawl into
And I've still got my pride

But if I had a woman
If I had a woman that I could abuse
If I had a woman that I could cruel to
Wish I had a woman that I could refuse
And then I guess that I'd be satisfied

Why does she have to be more than just a pair of legs?
And why can't I let her be just another fertile egg?
I better get her now before I have to beg
The way I did before
While I'll still take any port in a storm
And I've still got my pride

But if I had a woman
If I had a woman that I could annoy
If I had a woman to take all the lashes
I wish I had a woman that I could destroy
'Cause then I guess that I'd be satisfied

Oh God, somebody send me a woman
'Cause I need a woman that I can despise
I need a woman that I can tear limb from limb
I need a woman to listen to lies
And then I guess that I'll be satisfied
Then I guess that I'll be satisfied

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
