Running to the station
And you're feeling just like Ray Liotta
Eyes are blacker than your shades
You're wearing pretty thin
Tearing through the crowd
'Cause you won't wait
And you can't face a weekend
Staring at the ceiling
The walls are closing in
Life's too slow
So you run away
And you know
Life's too slow
Turn into the market
And you catch him on the stairs
Man, you kept me waiting
And it's giving me the fear
He takes you 'round the corner
And he passes you the gear
You bitch about the money
He says that's the cost of living
And life's too slow
I'll have you run away
And you know
You can run away
Back into the open
And you're feeling kind of nervous
want to get there quick
So get a cab
Rushing for the door
It seems you're never gonna get there
Now you're sitting again without your friend
You're looking in the mirror but it's not at your reflection
And a hit between the eyes starts your weekend
You're looking in the mirror but it's not at your reflection
And a hit between the eyes starts your weekend

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
