Legendary child
I'll tell ya what I'm talkin' about

Makin' love at seventeen, yeah, we had the luck
But we traded 'em toys and other joys, and we didn't give a (whoa-oh-oh)
I took a chance at the high school dance, never knowing wrong from right
And that same show, forty years ago, being televised tonight

'Cause journey from inside my head to the Taj Mahal
I went from never-havin'-none to wanna-have-it-all
I wanna keep that dream alive
And eat that honey from the hive
With all the noise and all the glamour
No surprise you know I am a
Legendary child

I think that what I'm tryin' to say is
Sticks and stones will break your bones, at least they'll rearrange
I drop a dime and every time I get myself a nickel's change (whoa-oh-oh)
They say we don't know jack
At the plant, we proved 'em wrong
We traded in our souls at night and sold 'em for a song

And if Satan had a lady friend, her name was Mary Jane
I never wondered why she tried to drive us quite insane
And how we got that golden fleece
From tokin' on that pipe of peace
Yeah, as far as I can see
There is a God 'cause I got me a

Legendary child
Legendary child

(Le-gen-da-ry child) legendary child
Legendary child

(Legend)
Legendary child
Legendary

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.
