Members of the jury
Your conclusion has been drawn
Defendants should be sentenced
But you just let 'em go

The city is a time bomb
The judge has lit the fuse
Vigilante breakout
Gotta tighten up the noose

Your honor, please
We want the truth
Nothing but the truth
Your honor, please

Objection overruled
Let's hang 'em high
Overruled
Horsewhip 'em

I call upon the nation
To take the witness stand
Too long you've stood in silence
Now justice will be done

Hey you, the jury members
You let the people down
We trusted your sincerity
One finger at the law

Your honor, please
We want the truth
Nothing but the truth
Your honour, please

Objection overruled
Let's hang 'em high
Overruled
Horsewhip 'em

The judge's hammer falls
Eruption in the court room
The cry goes up, "It's anarchy!"
Just stick your bloody rules

The judge's hammer falls
Let's loot them out of office
Some heads are gonna roll
The cry goes up, "It's anarchy!"

Your honor, please
We want the truth
Nothing but the truth

Objection overruled
Let's hang 'em high
Overruled
Horsewhip 'em
Objection overruled
This is a travesty of justice
Overruled
Appeal to a higher court

Objection overruled
Let's take it to the senate
Overruled
In the name of sanity
Objection overruled
Are you crazy
Overruled
Are you crazy

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
