[This song is sung by former Goo drummer, George Tutuska]

I feel so important today and I wish I didn't
I feel so important today and I wish I didn't

[laughs] Was I a little off-key?

    I like this song, lol... I don't think it's supposed to mean anything really, but maybe because the drummer is singing it, he feels more "important" than usual, but he doesn't want to. Heh. The title confuses me too, because the song isn't 22 seconds long, it's 39. :P

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
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.
