Driven to tears while being sucked dry
Beaten down, exploited, left in bits
No hint of self seeking, cold hard facts overlooked
While the ritual of disgust begins
Premeditation, no trace
Rigid execution
Of plans severe
Trust overlooked
While draining emotions
Avoiding with grace
Concerns unanswered
Slowly, methodically, breaking bonds of blood
Gown of tradition, splashed with crimson
Hidden deep in the belly of hate
Black widows bite dealt with precision
Trading her body in the pretense of love
Prevention of instinct
Survival never a second throught, submit
The wall to survive, buried absolute
Avoiding with unanswered
Hanesty betrayed
The struggle for breath begins
The web is spun breath begins
Never to let the children see the
Gown of tradition, splashed with crimson
Hidden deep in the belly of hate
Black widows bite, deaaalt with precision
Trading her body in the pretense of love

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
