The homeless are a problem for only one reason
Their presence raises the question
Who owns the Land?
The homeless are a problem for only one reason
Their presence raises the question
Who owns the Land?
Who owns the Land?
Who owns the Land?
Could it be millions of dead indians
Who owns the Land?
Could it be 6 million Jews?
Who owns the Land?
Is there a connection
Who owns the Land?
To our imperialism
Who owns the Land?
Won't someone please tell me..
Who owns the Land?
'cause I am just a white man
Who owns the Land?
I live in the Americas
Who owns the Land?
How did I get here?
This morning I was awoken, by a man with a hand gun
He's got a book of rules that says,
I ain't got no right to sleep
This morning I was awoken, by a man with a hand gun
He's got a book of rules that says, I ain't got no right to be
Who owns the Land?
Who owns the Land?
Is there a connection?
Who owns the Land?
To my daily eviction
Who owns the Land?
And the extermination
Who owns the Land?
Of the Native American
Who owns the Land?
Won't someone please tell me..
Who owns the Land?
'cause I am just a white man
Who owns the Land?
I live in the Americas
Who owns the Land?
How did I get here?
Who owns the Land?
Who owns the Land?
Who owns the Land?
Maybe it's you and me
Who owns the Land?
Maybe it's not
The corporations
Who owns the Land?
Maybe the Earth owns itself
Maybe it's the Native American
Ecocide,
Genocide,
Where is Home?

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
