Remember that song called "Kill me"
From Vick Timm's last LP
Too much of a risk
For a golden disc

The price he paid for money
Ce soir, Ce soir
Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star

Sing your song, you can't go wrong
No need for alarm
Attempted his business adviser
You'll come to no harm
He didn't mention the sniper
Ce soir, Ce soir

Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star

The news is read, the meaning spread
One yawn, two yawn, and back to bed
Come on maman, bend down your head
Turn off the light and hold me tight

And just sing on, immortal song
A lecture on political chicanery
Fini belle vie, bonne nuit
Remember that song called "Kill Me"
Of people's rape
Recorded on tape

Bought shame to the presidency
Tonight, tonight
One more point for human right

Remember that song "Kill Me"
Once used by a man from Galilee
He had nothin' to lose
He was king of the Jews
Secured his place in history
Ce soir, Ce soir

assassination d'un provocateur
One yawn, two yawn, and back to bed

Turn off the light and hold me tight
The news is read, the voice is spread
Come on maman, bend down your head
And just sing on, immortal song

Fini belle vie
Vick played the part, with all his heart
He wasn't prepared for the shock
When howling lead
A new martyr for the book of rock
Bit into his head
Ce soir, Ce soir

Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star

    Oh man, this song is so cool! How has no one commented?

    This is the story of an outspoken activist rock star, who's radical ideas were enough to get him assassinated.

    Lots of Golden Earring songs have really terrible lyrics. This is a glaring exception -- some of the verses are hauntingly good. "That song called kill me" -- like he's painting a target on his forehead, and then the biblical comparison. It's very potent stuff, this song. All-round awesome.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
