Checking into leaving, yeah I'm folding
Tired of breakin' down and shaking
This life around
Tired of praying, yeah tired of trying myself
I'm tired of being taken all the way
I don't need to be godless, but I am
I don't need my head, keepin' all my problems
I don't need your hand of God
I don't need, I say I'm godless
With no where to fall, I'm all ready to fall
Day by day I'm like a paper puppet and I'm stumbling around
Aching on the brain and I'm in
Big trouble big trouble
Still got to breathe oh yea
Like my shame this will all go down
God damned me that's for sure and I believe
I believed I don't belong here
I don't need, to get my head kicked in
And I don't need to be another lost soul that can't find home
I don't need to get my face
Dragged down in the muddy water
I don't need to say I'm godless anymore
Still I'm gone still I'm on the run
Still I'm on the break of the edge
Still I'm, still I'm feeling dead
I don't need to be godless but I am
I don't need to be another lost soul who can't find home
I don't need your hand of god
I don't need to be godless anymore
With nowhere to fall

    the song is about a guy who is lost in the world.
    he thinks he needs to find god and he can't and he doesn't mean not to believe in Him.

    actually i think this song is about a person who doesnt believe in god and how religion seems to make him remember his problems when he wants to forget them, and how he doesnt need gods forgiveness and gods help

    This album seems to have a lot talking about atheist beliefs and falling away from god. The lyrics to the album are very dark and angry.. yet very powerful. I don't think the guy is trying to find god, but lose him, just my two cents.

    This cd is truly great, one of my favorites.. UPO is terribly good, if you ever get a chance to pick up their cd's do it.. the lead singer is spectacular. One of the best hard rock bands no one has heard of. Instuments: Decent
    Vocals: Great Lyrics: Meaningful Feel: I'd say they are like the band Cold but better.

    I'd say the guy is admitting he needs something. I'm kinda there myself. Perhaps he's been without faith in a higher power and is suddenly realizing that life's bland without believing in something. He's having problems. Life's getting him down. He hurts. And he's singing about all of that. Just because the song says 'god' doesn't necessarily mean JUST God, though. Maybe he needs a purpose and direction.

    the song is not just about God. It has other meanings. I am in this situation right now in my life. I pray and pray and still the world kicks me in the face and I am tired of the pain. Why pray to God if he is not going to answer you and continue to let you go through all the pain? I want to believe in God and I want to live for him but i can't because I pray for help to get through all this and there is nothing. Why should I believe in God if he doesn't believe in me.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

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."

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
