The earth is crumbling, the end is near
No one's listening, I'm filled with fear
Hear the warning, in the prophet's word
Day by day, we're destroying this world
No more water
No more blue skies
No one cares, no one tries
To save what we once had
World at war (a world at war)
Rich and poor (rich and poor)
Burn in hell (burn in hell)
Hear dooms days bells (dooms days bells)
Ringing loud (ringing loud)
I see black clouds
We are making lucifer so proud
World at war (a world at war)
Rich and poor (rich and poor)
Burn in hell (burn in hell)
Hear dooms days bells (dooms days bells)
Ringing loud (ringing loud)
I see black clouds
We are making lucifer so proud
Blind leading the blind
No one sees the seventh sign
We're left behind
There's no more hope, the day has come
What we have done, can't be undone
Too many years, we've lived in sin
We know for sure, the beast will win
Fight fire with fire, to start to run
Don't trust a liar, like we have done
We've lost the battle to the evil one
Blind leading the blind
No one sees the seventh sign
We're left behind.

    I can't believe that i'm the first one to comment on this song. Malmsteen is definately under rated and the guy plays way better than any of the newer shit out there. Anyway this song is about how everyone has gotten so evil and how the rapture will start soon.

    I think the song's meaning is pretty explanatory by itself. It's about the end of times, upcoming Armaggedon. I also think Malmsteen is underrated. And this song is of course awesome, great vocals too by Matts and great guitar work by viruoso Mr.Malmsteen.

    Yes, self-explanatory song, and I think it's timeless too unless until when Armageddon begins.

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.

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.
