Carnage rules!
Rockin' and rollin' my way through town,
Yeah, baby, I get around,
Make mine murder, make the town bleed,
Squash any spider, her egg in Mile's greed
You can't run, I'm having too much,
Listen all you fools, don't you know that carnage rules?
Told you once, I won't tell you twice, heed my word and pay my price.
All day long I'm completely insane,
Crashin' and smashin' like a hurricane,
Cruisin' all my ride,
You best step aside,
First on my list,
Crushin' bugs with my fist,
My blade's all red,
Hear what I said?
Listen all you fools, don't you know that carnage rules?...
I'm out of my mind, no time to waste,
It helps me unwind, I love the chase,
This wasting, dude, is nothing but rude,
There's no stoppin' all this toppin',
No matter what your size, crushin' spiders like flys,
Listen all you fools, don't you know carnage rules? ...

    This is obviously about Carnage from Spider-Man comics. It should be familiar if you have played Maximum Carnage for Super Nintendo.

    I do believe Iceman is correct. I first heard this song in Spiderman: Maximum Carnage (for SNES and Genesis). In fact, they did the music for the entire game, or at least I'm pretty sure they did.

    Correct lyrics...

    Carnage rules! Rockin' and rollin' my way through town, Yeah, baby, I get around, Make mine murder, make the town bleed, Squash any spider hanging by a thread

    You can't run, I'm having too much, Listen all you fools, don't you know that carnage rules? Told you once, I won't tell you twice, heed my warning and pay my price.

    All day long I'm completely insane, Crashin' and smashin' like a hurricane, Cruisin' all my ride, You best step aside, First on my list, Crushin' bugs with my fist, My blade's all red, Hear what I said? Listen all you fools, don't you know that carnage rules? Told you once, I won't tell you twice, heed my warning and pay my price.

    I'm out of my mind, no time to waste, It helps me unwind, I love the chase, This wasting, dude, is nothing but rude, There's no stoppin' all this toppin',

    No matter what your size, crushin' spiders like flys, Listen all you fools, don't you know carnage rules? Told you once, I won't tell you twice, heed my warning and pay my price.

    "Make mine murder, make the town bleed,"

    The correct lyrics for that part is..

    "Make mine murder, paint the town red!"

    But yes, I believe this is about Carange (Comics).

    Classic. This was written for and included in the Maximum Carnage game.

    "There's no stoppin' all this choppin'!" It fits the theme of the song. My blade's all red, Carnage rules, etc. Toppin' makes no sense.

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.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
