Sunny Sunday at the amusement park
See the fat kids spill their pop, ooh babe
Lots of flags and balloons
But someone sabotaged the rollercoaster last night

Ran a turn and then it smashed right down
Through the crowded haunted house below, oh no!
Human hamburger, no

And it's crushed little kids
Crushed little kids
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk

Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids adorn the board-

See the tourists drop their jaws and cones
See the owners smell a big lawsuit, oh, police!
Call your lawyer first
Make the witnesses go home and they'll turn on the TV

And see crushed little kids
Crushed little kids
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids
Crushed little kids
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk

Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk
Crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk

    This song reminds me of I Kill Children with the references to dead kids....i think that Jello is trying to say that a lot of managerial type people are more concerned with money than with the safety of customers or indeed their mortality. Its so funny though when he says "crushed little kids adorn the boardwalk" with that really happy voice

    My Interpretation

    I thought the details of the song were so specific that it had to be based on a true news story, but I've never found confirmation of that theory anywhere. Regardless, it definitely seems to be satirizing how society reacts to a massive tragedy - especially with how the parents are depicted as being primarily concerned with getting a big lawsuit payout ("Oh police! / Call your lawyer first") and the local news showing graphic depictions of their deaths for ratings.

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"

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.

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.
