Can you feel the pulse?
Can you feel the heat rising from below?
Can you feel the energy gaining strength, oh so slowly?
But I'll wait...I'll wait...till the seasons change.
I'll wait...I'll wait... till the fall comes.
And I'll give you a mirthless laugh.
Can you see the signs?
Can you see the changing of the winds?
Can you see the stillness in the air?
Calm will remain...oh so shortly.
But I'll wait...till the seasons change.
I'll wait...till the fall comes.

    it's about someone who doesn't show his true self. he'll stay inside and doesn't voice his opinions at all. even if his thoughts are burning inside, he keeps them to himself. he lets no one in.

    yeah i agree with sugarpunk..sometimes you don't have to think about the meaning so much..(sometimes you do) but ithink people analyze stuff too much..there could be a deeper meaning but i think autumn is a good possibility

    i think it's about a person who's always been pushed down and been too scared to fight against those who have hurt them. but they slowly are gaining strength to fight back, and they can feel the time for them to change is coming soon.

    Its actually about one of the guys brothers that died. When he was buying ice cream the ice cream man put drugs in the ice cream and he had an Over Dose. True story.

    I don't see how it could be about someone that died, because it sounds like it's about summer turning into fall, and he's waiting for fall, maybe he's waiting for someone to come back to him then.

    This song just rocks! One of my favorites by them..I'm surprised it didn't get more attention. I think it's about someone who's been pushed down or kind of hiding in a way, regaining their strength, waiting for their time to come when it will be shown, and when it does, they'll just look back at all their oppressors, the people who didn't think he could do it, and just laugh.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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."
