I am so blind tonight
From the history light
Everything that's ever happened to me
Is in my head tonight
It's kinda nice not to see another sight
'Till I rest awhile
And all...
I...
Need...

(Chorus)
Is sleep- rest awhile
Sleep- like a child
Sleep- rest awhile
Sleep...

I am so high tonight
From the history light
Everything that's even been said to me
Is in my head tonight
It's kinda nice not to hear another sound
'Till I rest awhile
And all...
I...
Need...

Chorus

I am so blind tonight
From the history light
Everything that's ever happened to me
Is in my head tonight
It's kinda nice not to see another sight
'Till I rest awhile
And all...
I...
Need...
Yeah!

Chorus

Yeah...

    This song is so nostalgic for me. I grew up from a boy to a young man in the 90's. I only heard this song this year, but it's amazing, so are their other songs.

    This song would fit perfectly in a movie like 'The Crow'. Perhaps in a parallel universe it was.

    I saw this band on a radio interview with Howard Stern and he was being such a dick to them. I mean I know that is his job, but really he was a dick. He was focusing on Keanu and pretty much making the other two feel like crap. Keanu took it well, but I felt bad for all three of them. I mean, Keanu didn't need to be in a band at the time, he was already a success in movies, yet he played bass in a band.. and the way Howard Stern led the interview pretty much highlighted them only being famous for the fact he was in the band,

    They were a great band though! the lead singer (Bret Domrose) wrote some hugely poetic songs and had an amazing voice. His songs are amazing and capture the 90's alternative music scene perfectly. They are melodic, dreamy and great to dance and listen to. For me they are kind of like Counting Crows meets Goo Goo Dolls meets Pearl Jam.

    I can totally imagine driving in California late night in the mid-90's with a pretty girl and this booming from the sterio with the top down.

    Dogstar.. the most underrated band of the 90's

    I think if they got back together perhaps society might be evolved enough these days to get over the fact that Keanu Reeves is the Bassist and they could really do well.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
