The insanity
Is only a narrow bridge
The banks are reason and desire
Im going after you
The sunlight confuses the mind
A blind child that's crawling forward
Because it smells its mother

The track is fresh and on to the bridge
Drips your sweat, your warm blood
I dont see you
I only smell and I sense you
A preadator that screams with hunger
I scent you for miles

You smell so good
You smell so good
I'm coming after you
You smell so good
I'll find you
So good
I'm coming after you
You smell so good
I'll have you shortly

I 'll wait till it is dark
Then I'll touch your wet skin
Don 't tell on me
Oh don't you see the bridge is burning
Stop screaming, don't defend yourself
Because otherwise it breaks apart

You smell so good
You smell so good
I'm coming after you
You smell so good
I'll find you
So good
I'm coming after you
You smell so good
I'll have you shortly
You smell so good
You smell so good
I'm coming after you
You smell so good
I'll find you
So good
I barrel after you
You smell so good
Now i have you
You smell so good
You smell so good
I'm coming after you

    There was some controversy about it when it was released in Germany, I think- people saying it was about rape and it was promoting harassment of women, etc. Lame. This is my fave Rammstein song, I think there's a desperation in the lyrics- yes its about lust and stuff, but there's an undertone of love. I have a tendency to look too deeply into their lyrics

    A lot of people I know stopped listening to Rammstein after finding out what some of their lyrics meant...I think that's ignorant. Rammstein is awesome, Till Lindermann's voice is godly, and they have some of the best and heaviest guitar riffs ever. Anyway, their stuff isn't anything worse than Manson, or Cannibal Corpse, and people shouldn't take it so seriously.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.
