It doesn't matter what you need just where you go to get it
It doesn't matter what you've done there's no need to regret it
If you're a loser just like me then life hasn't been easy
Maybe you were waiting for the wake up call
And when it came, your line was busy

I know it's happened to me. And it will happen again
If I don't slow down and listen (and listen)

It's undeniable; we're so much smaller than we think we are

The first step that I needed to take was giving God control
That's a struggle for me everyday, and I'm letting you all know
There's a willingness that comes alive
When you begin tearing down the walls
But the first step is so very hard if you take a first step at all

I know it's happened to me. And it will happen again
If I don't slow down and listen (and listen)
If I don't sit down and listen (and listen)

When we've built up walls around us our hardened hearts can't bear
The healing hurts so badly that no one seems to care
And after all, and after all

    This song is well written; Mike's trying to explain how humbleness is a huge factor in the ability to be receptive to others. In this case, the elaborates on his relationship with God. He humbles himself before God and allows God to take control of his life.. this isn't easy to do w/ a hardened heart.

    very good song good line: "The first step that I needed to take was giving God control" it;s soo true but i have a ?, with the line "But the first step is so very hard if you take a first step at all" are they wanting ppl to take the first step? it does but doesnt sound like it, i guess depending on how u look/read it.

    (i dont think MxPx is really trying to force their opinions onto people by this song, or any other ones for that matter.) i think its just saying that it is hard for people to keep stady in thier relationship with God sometimes, especially if they are just starting their life with Jesus. another thing it could mean, is that you need to make the 'first step' if you want to get to know God at all... i dunno really... but im trying to figure it out...

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.

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"
