Love Song, take one

I love you,
I'm not coming back, bitch
I think I should say something
I can't see, I can't feel anything
I can't, I can't
Wash my face
Cut out my teeth and tell me to grin
My gums are bleeding
My gums are bleeding

I hate you
I hate you

Get a fucking haircut
Go fuck yourself
Rae Dawn Chong
Rae Dawn Chong
Rae Dawn Chong
Rae Dawn Chong
Rae Dawn Chong

Get something, get, get them, get them
Get them, get the fuckin' midget
Get the midget, get the midget
Get the fuckin' midget
"Where the deer and antelope play"

Kiss the midget
Kiss the midget
Kiss the midget
Kiss the midget

That was perfect, you guys, that was great

    I'm laughing at people who say it ruins the album. Sean Kinney is fucking hilarious.

    Best song AIC ever made. If there's ever a song to introduce people to AIC with, it's definitely this one.

    Kiss the midget!

    As many people think, this song is not pointless at all. There is a reason why they put this song at the end of SAP. This is Alice's view on relationship songs, and how they are pointless.I'll enterpit the song and show you what I mean.Also,this could be Sean's view on relationships since he wrote this song. (Spoken)Love song take one

    (Through Megaphone)I love you, I'm not coming back bitch

    (the person just broke up with the individual and is not comming back, even though he has feelings for the ex)

    I think I should say something

    I can't see, I can't feel anything, I can't I can't

    (When people just dump you on the spot, they often do not know how to feel or what to do)

    Wash my face, cut out my teeth and tell me to grin

    (This so called girlfriend was telling him what to do, stop doing this, play dumb and smile(IE having a false personality)

    MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING! MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING!

    (I've smiled so much that MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING)

    I hate you, I hate you

    (Stop telling me what to do, I hate you bitch)

    Get a fucking haircut! Go fuck yourself

    (Stop acting like your hot shit and wake up to reality)

    Rae Dong Chung

    Get something, get, get them, get them Get them, get the fuckin' midget Get the midget Get the fuckin midget Kiss the fuckin' midget

    (Metaphor for how relationships are small and stupid, and they are trying to figure out a point out of this relationship)

    "Where the deer and antelope play..." (I'd rather be a animal and live "where the dear and antelope play", in some false reality world when EVERYONE GETS ALONG)

    Kiss the midget

    After Writing songs like Got Me Wrong and Am I Inside, I say that this is a great way to end SAP. It views how the bandmembers where ultimately effected by relationships for the worse, and they really didnt get some meaning out of relationships.

    this is just fucking meaningless. haha! when i first listened to Sap, i least expected this to be the fifth track, since every other song on there was a bit depressing and mostly acoustic. this added a bit of humor to the album. hilarious stuff.

    Sorry for the double post, but I found this to support my conclusion.

    "The unmentioned song at the end of Sap was unscheduled and according to Sean, "due to acid." Sean sings, Layne plays drums, Jerry plays piano and bass, and Mike Starr plays the guitar."

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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/

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
