Beaucoup d'gens nous détestent, ils voudraient être comme nous
Reconnaissons que dans l'monde y'en a peu classe comme nous
Les ritals, j'viens d'la où parler avec les mains c'est vital
Où on te recoud le bras à la place d'une jambe à l'hôpital
J'viens d'là où le sourire s'affiche sans complexe
Où les relations avec la loi sont difficiles et complexes
D'là où les cités sont ennemies depuis des temps immémoriaux
Sans cesse aux mains d'colons venus d'Espagne
Du monde arabe ou d'France, du Royaume Normand
J'viens d'la où la terre ferme tremble en dormant
La où on s'pète un plat de penne all'arrabiata
Sur une terrasse au soleil relax avec des grosses Lozza
J'viens d'la où les maisons s'font et s'finissent pas
D'là où les équipes et les quartiers ne s'unissent pas
Où la majorité, s'acquiert dans la Strada
Où on rêve tous de luxe, de femmes qui claquent et de costumes Prada
D'là où y'a pleins d'gens honnêtes aussi
Des travailleurs qui s'lèvent, et des fous qui vivent des rêves, des dancings
Des boites de nuit qui jouent du
Des putains d'bandits qui jouent du
J'viens d'la où sur les murs, y'a les avis d'décès
D'la où Pipo plonge quand il joue les blessés
D'où les mecs préfèrent aux hommes, les animaux, seuls
Car très étrangement ils aiment tout ce qui ferme sa gueule

Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos

J'viens d'la ville où "à peu près" est synonyme de "très bien"
Faut pas nous en vouloir, c'est un système mis en place de très loin
D'là où les filles sont belles et les frères jaloux
Mais comment dire une fois libres, elle s'laissent aller au
Quand elles sont seules, de là où
Viennent Alban et Romina, là où
Les mômes, défilent en ville avec 6 kilos d'gomina
Sur les scooters à 3, attention au sac à main
Ici l'rétroviseur fait office de glace de salle de bains
J'viens d'là où les blondes généreuses squattent la télé
Blondes, eh ouais, le complexe mon frère, la Méditerranée, tu sais
D'la où les cartouches de clopes sont bourrées d'sciure
D'la où on t'fait un Nike sur la figure
Où les paris clandestins embrasent un pâté entier d'maisons
Si bien que tu vois les chevaux, s'tirer la bourre dans la rue
La où les p'tites stars du foot tirent et courent dans la rue
Là où les p'tits caïds de 12 ans tirent et tuent dans la rue
J'viens d'la où les mères, lisent et disent l'avenir dans l'tarot
Où on adule le sang de San Gennaro,
Santa Lucia dis moi comment va l'Vésuve, et l'Isola Verde
Où gosse je m'baladais, et j'me perdais
Je viens d'là où les bougainvilliers sont immenses
L'porte-monnaie mince, mais où l'hospitalité est immense
Où les gens ont le sens du secret, c'est pas qu'ils s'terrent
Mais ils savent qu'si on a rien d'bon à dire alors vaut mieux s'taire

Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos
Italiano, slanted-eyed banging them fat Milanos

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
