Lies are the words that I use when you look up hopefully
All of the things that we feel are a trick, a fantasy
What is the end? It is love, I pretend
It's calling, it's calling and I'm falling, I'm falling

And she said pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it comes from me
She said pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it belongs to me
She said I see, I see
She said pray to me, pray to me

But it was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, why don't you fuck off and die?
It was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, all lies

Lies are the light and the hope in your eyes as they shine on me
Tie up my hands with your chains they are bound to set me free
I'm singing, I'm singing and to that, I'm clinging
The words that I say only drag me away

And i said pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it comes from me
I said, pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it belongs to me
I said I see, I see
i said pray to me, pray to me

But it was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, why don't you fuck off and die?
It was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, all lies

Lies are the hopes and the chains that have dragged me here to you
All of these hopes and these chains I will gladly share with you
It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring
It's raining, it's pouring, and I'm falling, I'm falling

And he said pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it comes from me
He said pray to me, pray to me
All the love you see, it belongs to me
He said I see, I see
He said pray to me, pray to me

But it was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, why don't you fuck off and die?
It was all lies, a pack of lies
It was all lies, all lies

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.

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.

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.
