You've seen them in the malls
A bunch of kewpie dolls
You've seen them in the halls at school
They just wanna dig the rave
I just wanna dig their grave
And plant 'em somewhere near the pool

C'mon, it's time
To the kill the trendy
Everybody knows they deserve it
It's not a crime to kill the trendy
Everybody knows they're full of . . .

They're only on your side
When they can bum a ride
Until you start to slide and slip
They'll all jump overboard
And then they'll cut the cord
And let you go down with the ship

That's why I want
To kill the trendy
Everybody knows they deserve it
It's not a crime to kill the trendy
Everybody knows they're full of . . .

Don't talk to strangers
With pocket pagers
They're just a danger to your brain
Just look at all the fools
Who followed all the rules
And let the world go down the drain

C'mon, it's time
To the kill the trendy
Everybody knows they deserve it
It's not a crime to kill the trendy
Everybody knows they're full of . . .

C'mon, it's time
To the kill the trendy
Everybody knows they deserve it
It's not a crime to kill the trendy
Everybody knows they're full of . . . (KILL THE TRENDY!)
Everybody knows they're full of . . . (KILL THE TRENDY!)
Everybody knows they're full of . . . (KILL THE TRENDY!)
Everybody knows they're full of . . . SHIT!

    I was at a show of theirs in 1999 at the Emerson in Indianapolis and they dedicated the song to the Columbine massacres. It was sad, but true.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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”
