Every year at this time
I'd look over at some friend of mine
I'd realize and say Hey, have you seen the skies
They've been clear for days
I think we have survived
Another Year
Hey Brother
The newspaper said you were 38 years old
Dead from hypothermia
I didn't even know
That California got that cold
Hey Brother
The cops found your body
In the Ivy next to the tree
Right there on University
And I couldn't help thinking
It could've been me
Every year at this time
I'd look over at some friend of mine
I'd realize and say Hey, have you seen the skies
They've been clear for days
I think we have survived
Another Year
Hey Sister
Newspaper said they found your murdered body
Beheaded, flaoting in garbage
Right there in the Oakland estuary
Hey Sister
Cops said no one reported you missing
No friends or Family
Just another homeless woman
Found dead on the street
And I couldn't help thinking
It could of been me
Mother, Earth
Father, Sky
I am the intersectino of you both
I am heaven on Earth
I am union
Hey Mother
You always took such good care of me
And I can't help thinkin'
That I get everything I need
Hey Father
Sometimes it's so scary
Being a kid
Living on the street
But I get everything I need
I get everything I need
Every year at this time
I'd look over at some friend of mine
I'd realize and say Hey, have you seen the skies
They've been clear for days
I think we have survived
Another Year

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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.
