Give me some antiseptic
To wash this headache away
Give me a syringe
To inject the pain
Give me something pretty I hope I'll never be
I'd rather be creepy and very strange
Give me a cake that I can mix and bake
In a Betty Crocker oven that I will break

Bake it up and we will
Stab Stab Stab
Come on, don't be afraid
We will make you
Stab Stab Stab
My world is evil but American made

Give me something easy that I can complicate
Something healthy that I can infect
Give me a mate in a crippled state
With Halloween teeth that I can break

Bake it up and we will
Stab Stab Stab
Come on, don't be afraid
We will make you
Stab Stab Stab
My world is evil but American made

Momma's apple pie got a cockroach in it
Burn the flag with a fag
Momma's apple pie got a cockroach in it
Burn the flag with a fag
Momma's apple pie got a cockroach in it
Burn the flag with a fag
Momma's apple pie got a cockroach in it
Burn the flag with a fag

Bake it up and we will
Stab Stab Stab
Come on, don't be afraid
We will make you
Stab Stab Stab
My world is evil but American made
American made
American grave
in an American grave

    it depends what version it is. the version that's on "sexless demons and scars" it says "stab stab stab". thats the version with the "momma's apple pie.." line. there's another remixed version that has "tear them down" instead of "stab stab stab" and it doesnt have the apple pie line. nod

    I think this song is a bit cheeky and is poking fun at Americana. I think in all its cheekyness, it's touching some very deep and real issues.

    "Give me a syringe To inject the pain "- I think this is quite simply pointing out how, no matter how 'wealthy' America seems to others...we have a serious drug epidemic overall.

    "Give me a cake that I can mix and bake In a Betty Crocker oven that I will break"- i think this touches on women in America...and how since women's rights came...the BETTY CROCKER'S of the nation have become somewhat obsolete (good thing).

    "Give me a mate in a crippled state With Halloween teeth that I can break "- I think this touches on greed in America...you know, the young women who marry rich old men and kill em off for their money...yeah...(ANNA NICOLE).

    "Momma's apple pie got a cockroach in it Burn the flag with a fag "- This seems almost to be about how accepting the American military is of homosexuality, whichis NOT AT ALL.

    "My world is evil but American made "- self explainiory.

    I don't find this song mocks America. I think instead, it is being very critical of the problems America has. Maybe it also points out how mainstream America can tend to leave outcasts and people with a very twisted view of the world.

    Seeing as the band appears to be far from mainstream culture, this song points out how the author's own world was twisted by 'America.

    Just some thoughts.

    I also feel the song is poking at the American way of life. Maybe Jessicka feels that the U.S.A is evil, hence the "my world is evil, but american made", it could have to do with all the negative imagery that the states portray, what with war and what not..just a thought.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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"

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
