I can't weep only cry
I can move, I deny
See my smile, eat, eat, eat
Fe fe feed you, so damn sweet
She's calling

She's my heroine
She's my heroine
Fingers going down, down
She's my heroine

You're too weird
Creep, creep, creep
Smiley faces so discrete
La la lover evil eyes
I can't sleep for her lies
She's calling, she's crawling
Smashed you in the face
Up against the wall
(There's) no one I can call

She's my heroine
She's my heroine
She's my heroine
She's my heroine

    I completely disagree with everything that's been said. It's about dealing with Bulimia Nervosa. Heroine=female hero as well as addiction. Those who suffer of this disorder have kind of a goddess figure as their inner voice, telling them what to do and what not to do. They worship her. That suits the words 'fingers going down' meaning she is forcing herself to vomit in order to stay thin and please her heroine. 'there's no one I can call' means she can't escape her no matter how she tries, because she is inside her head. 'eat,eat,eat' refers the eating frenzies those people have afterwhich they go to the bathroom. Then 'feed you so damn sweet'- unlike in anorexia they don't starve theirself and they do eat, often sweet things to fill their hunger quickly.

    I know this explanation doesn't cover all the words of the song, but looking at how thin Skin is, I reckon it's precise.

    about a lover of skin's who's cheated on her ("creep, creep, creep/i can't sleep for her lies...") and she's in denial about it, but when she has sex with her, she forgets all about and starts adoring her again ("fingers going down..." = lesbian sex?) oh and the line after "up against the wall" is "still your secrets safe, there's no one i can call".

    thats just my take on it.

    About complete surrender for the urges that keep you with that person that is so fatal for you. You know she is bad for you, and you still give in to her because you can not not. Its a very dark and yet seductive place, because you feel so good while being destroyed.

    The addictive person in this song seems to feed off of the protagonist's weakness, or at least completely ignore the ill she might be doing her.

    I love the wordplay of the title.

    Wow, I love that bit where she sings "Fingers going down, down, she's my heroine"...filled with so much pain and almost desperation.

This is one of my favorite songs. https://fnfgo.io

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
