Now at my feet, the dying voice of
Balance - nevermore shall there be a
way to fly,
a way to fly on wings of Divinity, as
words of wisdom fade away

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Seek and find all the secrets left for you
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

The hidden words - a piece of the
puzzle - Time will tell what will be
Between the lines, the past and future
you will find - the ones and zeros are
the key
to unlock what's sealed

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Justice lost - a travesty we must undo
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

"Awaken all from Set - Amentet -
Worship all that I represent"

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Destruction, death and war are in the
air
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
ruling all that we know

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Unbound - what once was lost - now is
found
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will we know

"...curse the fools who look for enswers in a
Rhyme,...I am the future, I am Montu -
Sekhmet"

    The correct line is "Ptah Khnemu will crush the sky" not "The rising moon will crush the sky"

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
