People make mistakes
We find that everything breaks
And it always is the same, gotta find someone to blame
And these errors that we make (cause we're all human earthquakes)
Yeah, we made the hurricane, yet we're not the one's to blame?

We point the finger even though it's not polite
We condemn the son of God (we're hoping two wrongs make a right)
Maybe it is them
Or, maybe it is me
Or, maybe it's Maybeline

People make mistakes
We took the apple from the snake
And it always is the same:
Gotta find someone to blame
Our reputations were at stake, but the guilt we could not take
America's gone done the drain
The president's fault again?

We point the finger even though it's not polite
We condemn the son of God (we're hoping two wrongs make a right)
Maybe it is them
Or, maybe it is me
Or, maybe it's Maybeline

The truth is, excuses are lame
Accept consequence
Accept the blame
We're all sinners
We're all unclean
Maybe we're born with it
Or maybe it's Maybeline

    the first time i heard this song i loved it. the lyrics (which speak for themselves) coupled with some keyboard use (i love keyboards, i play one), make this song, by far, my fav by reliant k. yay.

    this is one of the best rk songs. especially the "the truth is excuses are lame" part. all about taking responsibility and not shoving the blame on someone else.

    This song is great. Relient K has some of the best intros I have ever heard, and this is one of them. This song isn't that heard to figure out what it means. Basicly means don't blam anyone but yourself for you mistakes.

    "Man, i saw this rockin' band at ichthus, man do they rock out hard core!!!!", that's what i would be saying if this band was good, instead, they lick their own scrotum with the goat face. Ichthus was like woodstock minus the fun. plus, Kirk Franklin and his Nu Nation weren't present. That's some shitty shit. extra pissed off i was. he's my nigga, and he keeps shit reality dogg. Niggerz rule!!!

    I think this song is good, to me, its not one of their best songs, but if you dont like it, dont listen to it! Relient K own! Their music is actually worthwhile listening to, they are awesome!

Album art
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.
Album art
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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
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.
