Everything here is so cold
Everything here is so dark
I remember it as from a dream
In the corner of this time

Diabolic shapes float by
Out from the dark
I remember it was here I died
By following the freezing moon

It's night again, night you beautiful
I please my hunger on living humans
Night of hunger, follow it's call
Follow the freezing moon

Darkness is growing, the eternity opens
The cemetery lights up again
As in ancient times
Fallen souls, die behind my steps
By following the freezing moon, yeah

    How can anyone possibly claim that this album is anything other than true fucking black metal ?!

    Here you can hear clearly that he is trying to say that people are commiting suicide "...fallen souls die behind my steps By following the freezing moon" (People are doing the same as he did) and "Follow it's call Follow the freezing moon" That means: Commit suicide!

    maniac just plain sucks, little whining sissy. i wish dead did the de mysteriis album.

    although i thought this song had a deeper meaning than the "walking corpse" one provided.

    It's not about a fucking vampire or a corpse who died of the cold stupid people! It's about commiting suicide. "Follow the freezing moon" is a metaphor for commiting suicide. Thats why he is saying "I remember it was here I died By following the freezing moon " What he means is "I remember it was here i died by commiting suicide"

    Everyone knows that this song is about commiting suicide you dumb people!

    Its about a walking corpse who died of the cold, and now eats humans.

    Yeah, the lyrics are well written considering what the song is about. I think the line: "Fallen souls die behind my steps, by following the freezing moon" is one of the best lines in metal.

    I probably like Maniacs version on Live in Lipzeig a little better than Attila's.

    Dead does the vocals on Live in Leipzig, not Maniac.

    Thats quite possible, though Mayhem hasn't often been one for deep, meaningful lyrics.

    Maniac's lyrics on the Deathcrush EP are OK, his newer lyrics aren't that great. Attilas lyrics, however, are just horrible. The bastard completely ruined the album. Dead is, in my opinion, one of the best BM vocalists.

    My bad, I was confusing Live In Leipzig with Live in Marseille, and Maniac with Dead...Mayhem is a confusing band :\

    Dead was definetly the best writer of them all.

    Grand Decleration of War completely sucked, but I thought Chimera was ok.

    Dead produced Mayhem's best vocals and lyrical concepts so far; unfortunately he wasn't as competent at the actual songwriting. The lyrics are mostly good, but they could have been so much better had they been put into words by a better writer.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
