Zooming through the universe
On collision course
A meteor from outta space
Gonna smash the earth
Head down to the trenches
To watch the bloody war
Nothing's gonna stop
The metal dinosaurs

Runaway train lost control
A thousand tons of steel
Overheated engines
The screaming of the wheels
A fighter in a boxing ring
Takes the final blow
Opponent's on the canvas
Lost by t.k.o.

Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail
Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail

From Belfast to Jerusalem
It's the living hell
Tuzla to Afghanistan
Fighting tooth and nail
Death is irreversible
No matter what we try
Life is not recyclable
We are born to die

Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail
Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail

He was a teen spirit idol
Loaded up his veins
He couldn't stand the pressure
So he terminates his brains
A renegade Red Indian
They called Geronimo
Cracked the white man's head
Like the raging buffalo

Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail
Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail

Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail
Dead on
In a head-on collision
Dead on
Like the hammer and the nail

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”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
