Lucky break
You won't shake
Your own meal
No one will call you out
Still wait it through
Not again
Its taking time
To make it mine
Sit in the back room now
Martyrs to trust
Made this stain for comforts sake
Faked you out
You're not aloud
To point that finger
[Sizzle]? is waiting to receive
The actors award
Settle in
Made this stain for comforts sake
Sit in the back room now
Martyrs to trust
Your songbird
Has just called me out
This wrong word
Just might blow out
Made the stain for comforts sake
Well courage is based on the ranking I may have
earned less in stress
The password is so close no clue [is in the show]?
can't have in so-so
Well courage is based on the ranking I may have
earned less
Your songbird
Has just called me out
This wrong word
Just might blow out
Your songbird
Has just called me out
This wrong word
Just might blow out
Let's go
You fool fool [worm]?
Come out
Face this crowd
Come down
On this ground
Speak out
Out loud
EMPTY THE FENCE!!
EMPTY THE FENCE!!
YOU MAY COME IN LAST!!
This is your lucky break

    "Speak out Out loud EMPTY THE FENCE!! EMPTY THE FENCE!! YOU MAY COME IN LAST!! This is your lucky break" ????????

    I always heard it as: "You speak of, my love, After the fact, After the fact"

    doesn't sound like "empty the fence " to me at all. my opinion though.

    I've always

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

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
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.
