Used to be a time where everything I did was right and nothing could go wrong.
Nothing could go wrong.
I don't want to talk about it.
I don't want to think about it.
Seems like all the walls are falling down around my feet and...

Here I am just picking up the pieces.
All alone just picking up the pieces.
Here I am just picking up the pieces.
I don't want to.
I don't want to.

Everything you've got doesn't really mean a lot when everything goes wrong.
Everything goes wrong.
I don't want to think about it.
Seems like all the walls are falling down around my feet and...

Here I am just picking up the pieces.
All alone just picking up the pieces.
Here I am just picking up the pieces.
I don't want to.
I don't want to.

Here I am just picking up the...
Here I am just picking up the...
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?

Here I am just picking up the pieces.
All alone just picking up the pieces.
Here I am just picking up the pieces.
I don't want to.
I don't want to.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
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.

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.
