"roll film!" screams scissor lips, prepping the flesh with his paper cut hiss. she couldnt breathe she couldnt speak as faceless vampires bled the rosy from her cheeks

scene one, enter junkyard j: the man with the used smile spits on his fingertips. swinging the sledgehammer he pounds his thunder kiss. and the crowd sin sings along to his victory song. pinned on the anvil her crown starts to flake. but thats what it takes to make the big make the big break!

cut camera! screams scissor lips. the screen god shuts. the audience gnaws their finger tips. stage hands hammer stakes to her hands and knees. the modern crucifixion legs parted in the shape of a v.

scene two: enter skin arms girls: camaro's disguised as tanks. pom pom's plazing rapid fire blanks. high fived, ruined lives, high fives, LA hives, high fives, high fives the theater wails like diseased violins, high heeled castanet clicks rape harmony. youth decays in 4/4 time.

scene three: this is the making of a hollywood queen. this christening of a legendary dream. this is your birth breath, this is your death sigh and nothing hurts quite like the first time.

    yehh i think its about a porno. thats what it seems like to me. i think its about how a lot of young actresses go to hollywood to make serious films and end up getting sucked in to making porn flicks, and about how it kills their youth and any hope they have for the world. "and nothing hurts quite like the first time" i think that lines referring to how you just get numb to the pain of feeling used by the other actor's and actresses' when making the films for the pleasure of others. just my guess though.

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.

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,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline

Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
