Que sont devenus tous mes amis
Je me rappelle et c'est pas si loin
De l'âge où on mettait le feu à tous les coins

Je me souviens et c'est pas des ragots
On était plus près des altères que des égaux
Plus près de la cheville que du cerveau

Je me souviens et c'est pas si loin
Mais je peux pas dire que je ne regrette rien
A 15 ans t'as la tête comme un gourdin ...

Où t'es plus proche des mains que des humains
J'ai vu des attaques au "croissant chaud" le matin
Qui méritaient pas qu'on nous traite d'assassins..:

chorus :
Que sont devenus tous mes amis
Mais aujourd'hui je pleure et puis j'en ris
On s'est pas tous tiré d'affaire
Pas de la même manière

On était chauds, tous comme nos aînés
C'est pas la faute à la mère Méditerranée
Mais je sais qu'on allait plus souvent au ciné.

On est monté sur tous les arbres à bout de bras
Les pommiers, tous les cerisiers, les acacias
Mon frère! toutes les branches se rappellent de moi.

On cueillait pas, on faisait des ravages
Et puis les devantures et tous les étalages
A 15 ans, tout passe, passe et dans l'œsophage...

Comme on finit par attraper la diarrhée
Et qu'on a digéré les fruits avariés
On s'attaque à l'épicier, on s'attaque à l'épicier


De l'épicier tu passes à l'épicière
Tu veux manger toute la terre entière
Alors on cassait tout, on lâchait pas l'affaire

On a commencé à marquer des territoires
Fils de Crao et de tous les barbares
Un concentré de méchanceté rare

Et tous les jours, on était en vacances
Mais franchement tout est foutu d'avance
Quand le poids est d'un seul côté de la balance

Après les munchakus et la cape à Zorro
Après les mobylettes et les petits vélos
Y restait rien, y fallait du nouveau


Corrigés par des adultes à bout de nerfs
Qui nous auraient brûlé à l'essence ordinaire
II leur en manquait le courage pour le faire

Moi, y'a deux trois choses que je regrette
Pour une porte qui s'est un peu ouverte
Un sourire qui disait, il est pas si con.

Un îlotier à qui j'aurais dit non
Et qui m'a saoulé avec son intégration
Intégré, je le suis; où est la solution ? (x 4)

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
