Ain't takin nobody back wit me
It's on to the end anybody
Who wanna get me
Ain't lookin back putting all on the line
Don't give a fuck bring the ruck one time
and I think we should all get
down and busy display the footwork
leave you psinning till you're dizzy
Niggas say who is he
but I know for a fact
the same fool that's watching
is the one who will stab yo' back
So make plot patrol nonstop
know exactly who comes on the block
Take no prisoners put that into effect
get the name from your set
Tat it on your neck gotta let
these motherfuckers know who got next
South side Cypress venue out here
Out here catchin' wreck
and show your respect
when you step up to me son
Don't immitate cause my style
Ain't in season
go back to the lab
up grade chump get a new
chump on before you get
Dumped on.


Melt down, takin you home the unknown
count down, hittin the grown the seed grown
downtown, creepin through alleys the dark night gets lit up
when lightning strikes get up.

2nd verse

Take a ride when lightening strikes city light are gleamin
no sun shine no California dreamin
The demon is roamin on the loose who got juice
suffer abuse when electric currents are induced.
Soul shocker lockin on rock on the brain waves
what you clockin on I'm droppin a bomb you get maimed
the games you play look up and say you wanna change
and rearrange its strange you never go that way.
Don't look back forget that you need that
just sit back look at the show you see that.
Display the raw power black out even the score
open the door and break out
leave it alone the unknown fury the blind rage
step aside get fried and make the front page.
Center stage you ask the task to leave quick
or suffer the pain leavin no hope to be fixed
your heart beat pumpin your blood high pressure
look at you stuck in the mud bring in the stretcher
strapped down ready to roll to God knows
tears coming down of buckets of rain slow.


Melt down, takin you home the unknown
count down, hittin the grown the seed grown
downtown, creepin through alleys the dark night gets lit up
when lightning strikes get up.

    Another song from Twisted Metal 4. This is from the freeway level, "Road Rage", and it fits so perfectly. I like that the game version censors the "N" word. I hate that word.

    It's also from Checkmate, and in that, they don't censor it. You know why? Because they're proud of being black, so get over it, man.

    From Kingpin*, I meant. Checkmate is another Cypress Hill in that game.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.
Album art
Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
