God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with the light up above
From the mountain to the prarie
Through the ocean, white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home!

Write your name and spell it well
All good children go straight to hell
See what you saw, see all you can see
As you get fucked by your own liberty now

If love is a taxi, the devil would drive
If hatred is English, then I'm speaking jive
If this is a fuck, then I'd run for a mile
When I say baby, bruises are back in style

God bless America
God hates America

Know your name when you're in a rage
Piss and shit line an empty cage
The people look, they all stop and stare
At the little girl with the long greasy hair now

If love is a taxi, the devil would drive
If hatred is English, then I'm speaking jive
If this is a fuck, then I'd run for a mile
When I say baby, bruises are back in style

God bless America
God hates America!

Know your name and spell it well
Sign in blood, you might as well
See what you saw, see all you can see
As you get fucked by your own liberty now

If love is a taxi, the devil would drive
If hatred is English, then I'm speaking jive
If this is a fuck, then I'd run for a mile
When I say baby, bruises are back in style

    Can't be bothered reading this, so don't know if its been said before, but the echoes on the opening bit are distinctly sarcastic. eg: "white with foam" has, like, three echoes afterwards that, and this is where I start to get really bad at this, seem to me to convey that she doesn't really believe a word she's saying for a minute, and that she's almost mocking this view of America as this pure, clean, perfect country.

    crammond, yes. the white with foam part is mocking, think about it. it sounds dirty to me like she's trying to mock it with what cum looks like. and she sings the entire anthem as a mock to America, she says 'god bless America' she means 'FUCK YOU AMERICA' but not in so many words... I'd be scared if she wasn't singing it to mock America

    This is the song I wish I could sing on stage infront of everyone! It's like our new National Anthem or something.

    It is called, in one wonderful blessed word, A-N-A-R-C-H-Y! But that is my opinion, I dunno. I would love to sing this song for the first baseball game or something. Or in front of or at some Political meeting. hehe

    I also believe this song is about knowing where you came from,maybe leaving and then coming back and realizing how much your hometown has changed/sucked.

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”
