Will you take my life in one breath
Will you subside into witnessing my death
Because when whats gone is gone
and whats left is left
will you keep in mind
my selfish death
will you remember the times that we had together
will you keep these in mind forever
will you mourn the loss of a loved one
or will you celebrate the loss of a hated one
will you even shed a tear when my life is done
do you remember all the times we had when we were young
I was such a care-free and happy one
But that was just on the outside
all the while I was being tortured on the inside
and the only way to be happy
the only way to be finally free
is to take my life with my own hand
to finally leave this corrupted land
and on the next day
the sun will be shining away
totally oblivious to my deed
while so many men will pay no heed
In the fields the dandelions will still dance
while the deer still prance
And a new day will shine
there will be no sorrow or moral
because the life lost was mine
A kid of only fifteen years old
and my life is thrown into the wind like dust
and is lost with barly even a gust.

    This song is about self-pity. It reminds me of the people who contemplate suicide because they want to whine and say that nobody will miss them, that no one will go to their funeral.

    Punk in drublic says... Watchthefireworks is the biggest UGLY FUCKING DICK HEAD I've ever seen! I hope you die and no one ever thinks of you again. Don't you realize to be able to think of ending your own life, you'd have to be already that much more depressed than the rest of the world? Go die with the Hanson women in that bondage orgie, you fucker. I can't stand people like you. Like, it's people's choice to write about what they're feeling or not and you know, if you don't like it then go listen to Ricki Martin. Gr.

    punk in drublic says... so what, kid? He wrote about what HE was feeling. The song itself is his opinion.. why are you bashing that? You didn't even say what the song meant to you, you just complained about whiney people.

    Until you stop talking about yourself in third person, I don't think I can take you seriously, "kid".

    This song is the biggest ryhming cliche of depressive lyrics I have ever read in my life. I don't know how I ended up reading these, but I sure do hope the music end is a hell of a lot better.

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

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.

Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
