The Top Becomes The Bottom
The Fantasy Becomes Reality
The Conceptions Change
The Landmarks Dissolve

And All Becomes Intermingled

To Flirt With The Dispicable
In A Trance Without End
Where The Ice Burns
Like Glowing Embers
And Where One Shatters
By Fits And Stars Of Sperm
The Morale Of Men

Serve Another God
Lose Another Dream

Sentiments Imprison And Leave
Their Victims Without Defence
Love Is A Prison Which
Flourishes In The Heart Of The Weak

From The Lower World We Direct
The Attraction Of The Distasteful
Makes Us Ignore The Vile
Since Only From Below
Can One Better See The Heights

    General Comment

    This is another song about homosexuality from samael:

    Top becomes the bottom (in male female sex the male is usually the top, in gay sex the male can be bottom)

    The Fantasy Becomes Reality (engaging in the fantasy of gay sex) The Conceptions Change (the conception of being only with a woman changes) The Landmarks Dissolve (the pivotal landmarks such as marriage, having kids changes in homosexual relationships)

    And All Becomes Intermingled (there is no longer clear boundaries that love has to be between a man and woman, now it can be between a woman and woman, or a man and man) To Flirt With The Dispicable (refers to flirting with a something that is hated such as a gay man, this theme of struggle of sexual idenities is a reoccurent theme shown through samael music) In A Trance Without End (this line identifies that the person is having feelings that consumes with out end) Where The Ice Burns Like Glowing Embers (these lines are about ice burning, which shows that two things that are not suppose to happen with each other, gay sex is not suppose to happen either) And Where One Shatters By Fits And Stars Of Sperm (this is about having sex with men and having an orgasm) The Morale Of Men (this is questioning whether homosexuality shatters the illusion of what is moral to men)

    Serve Another God (this refers to choosing religion and false rules of man over self) Lose Another Dream (if you do this you will lose all hope of reaching the dream of being at peace with your true self)

    Sentiments Imprison And Leave Their Victims Without Defence (the ability to love who you want and coming out leaves you no defense against the critical world eyes) Love Is A Prison Which Flourishes In The Heart Of The Weak (Being free to be gay and love who you want to puts you in a prison of judgemental society, but it allows you to love instead of being entrapped by hate, the heart of the weak is that gay people are seen as being weak)

    From The Lower World We Direct The Attraction Of The Distasteful (attraction to the same sex) Makes Us Ignore The Vile (this means to ingnore the vile religious text that teaches hate towards gays and society who closed thier minds to accepting others) Since Only From Below Can One Better See The Heights (if you allow yourself to be free you can see the heights that you can reach-happiness

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
