Sweating all over, I wake-up mad!

I was born without any reason
Simply being forced to live
I disliked the marks of any season
Well, I kept on being stiff
Boys around were growin’ very fast
They’ve lost their age to run for gold
I’m as young as I was in the past
They’ve no sex, their eyes are old
I’m still proud of being male
I’ve got my guts for sale!

I enjoy to live without friends
There’s no one I still believe
No more madmen who can get a sence
Of energy I want to give
Red hot slut is lying in my bed
The enemies can’t get inside
No more chance to make me really sad
Until my body fit to fight
I’m still proud of being male
I’ve got my guts for sale!

I will be forever mean
I won’t let the wankers in
Going crazy by the drive
Testing myself all the life

Every midday I look at the mirror
Seeing my impudent face
Do I look like an antisocial hero?
Did I come from outer space?
I’ve no fun to change the people’s mind
They always keep their mouth shut
I’ve no time to talk, I keep on running
Just to shake my boiling blood
I’m still proud of being male
I’ve got my guts for sale!

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.
