I got that special disease
That knocks the shit out of me
Cause when you break it, you buy it, you own it
Cause you get nothing for free

He got that special disease
He eats the scabs off my knees
I got a genocide hand on his forehead
But he got nothing on me

(Chorus - just "ooh ooh, ohhh")

He smokes the cigarette trees
He loves my hostilities
He brings me flowers and candy and kringle
But that won't satisfy me


I try to hate equally
They say that's misanthropy
Cause when I want it, I break it, I burn it, I own it, I have it, you'll see


Collecting things that I've already owned
I'm schizophrenic when I'm on the phone
I guess that's why I'm never alone
Cause I am never myself

He wants to feed me the pentagram cereal
He puts the spoon in my mouth and I choke
He push it farther and farther and farther down
This stuff won't fit down my throat


I got that special disease
That knocks the shit out of me
Cause when I break it, I buy it, I own it, I have it, I love it, you'll see

    A kringle is something you do... kind of like a gesture. Like, if you're at a JOJ concert and you throw you fist in the air, it's a kringle. Or... if you're at a Manson concert and put your horns in the air, it's a kringle. Elvis thrusting his pelvis is a kringle... hah. Kringles rock, everyone has one.

    i think this songs cool cuz it starts off sounding like shes better than this guy 'he eats the scabs off my knees, i got a genocide hand on his forehead but he got nothing on me' and then at the end he becomes the one with the power. its cool cuz it kinda bounces off the walls

    nods The song progresses from her being in power to him. Not to mention it has a cool guitar. It's beyond me how her voice gets that high, but it fits perfectly.

    Love these lines:

    "I'm schizophrenic when I'm on the phone I guess that's why I'm never alone Cause I am never myself "

    A kringle is a certain gesture, Jessicka has said that. What this song is about, is about how, maybe, certain little gestures from a guy, makes Jessicka love him, but what she does, makes her a bad person

    I like the line "he eats the scabs off my knees" but otherwise I'm not too keen on this song.

    For some reason, something about this song makes me think that it's about STD's. Like, that could be what "that special disease" is. And "he" could be a boyfriend, and he is bringing her "flowers and candy at/and kringle" because she is ill. Just a thought.

    My Opinion

    "He smokes the cigarette trees" is one of my favourite lyrics ever. No idea what it means, though!

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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
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.
