Time has imprisoned on my soul
Religion in the path of what compels me
Lies instrument the holy hate
Deceiving of the weak in faith intention
Suffering with no reason and nodoubt
Pertruding on the lines of persecution
Vomit on the holy man never before your saviour

Brain dead victims of the holy
Preach your holy lies
Laugh at divinations and we all will be dead
Inscripted is you who will die
Hypocratic bible puncher
Perish from thisland
Faithinized victims of the kingdom of hatred
Infecting this world with their plan

Before none I shall confess
From a far nor heaven sent
Cursed are the lambs of god

Brain dead victims of the holy
Preach your holy lies
Laugh at divinations and we all will be dead

Inscripted is you who will die
Hypocratic bible puncher
Perish from thisland
Faithinized victims of the kingdom of hatred
Infecting this world with their plan

Time has imprisoned on my soul
Religion in the path of what compels me
Lies instrument the holy hate
Deceiving of the weak in faith intention
Suffering with no reason and no doubt
Pertruding on the lines of persecution
Vomit on the holy man never before your saviour

    Song Meaning

    In this, the sixth libretto from the "Legion" Operetta, the conductor guides us through a personal journey as he takes a critical eye to the merits of commonly held spiritual belief systems, and paints a vivid inner conflict; that of an unlikely hero trying to negotiate his own internal struggles while unnamed forces attempt to deceive him with an agenda of piety.

    In the first and last movements, the conductor employs free verse to systematically reveal examples of malfeasance that belie the austere claims of his adversary, as he shines a light on both cause and effect, culminating with a stern defiance of established protocol.

    In the second and fourth movements, the author addresses his adversaries and their followers directly, and with escalated criticism. The listener is guided through a lens of hypocrisy, as the author exposes ulterior motives while expressing objection.

    The author's reflective prose is bifurcated at the third stanza; an affirmation of the author's unwillingness to concede to his adversary, and a strongly-worded assertion, calling his their motivations into question.

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.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
