Shooting from the hip
Slipping from an iron grip
Going further than I've ever been
Into the realms of the unseen
Fate is your enemy
Rebel against your destiny
Going further than I've ever been
Yeah further than I've ever been

Got a beautiful face go a fucked up inside
Need a shot of your faith
Come along for the ride
Yeah love is your faith
Yeah death is your fate

Never going to reach my goal
I know 'cause I have been told
Never finding happiness
Eternally in unrest
This is where the love lies
I've seen to the other side
It's always been just out of reach
Yeah but always just within my sight

Got a beautiful face got a fucked up inside
Need a shot of your faith
Come along for the ride
Yeah love is your faith yeah death is your fate
Yeah death is your fate come along for the ride

Going further than I've ever been

Got a beautiful face got a fucked up inside
Need a shot for your faith
Come along for the ride
Yeah love is your faith yeah death is your fate
Yeah death is your fate come along for the ride
Got a beautiful face got a fucked up inside
Need a shot for your faith
Come along for the ride
Yeah love is your faith yeah death is your fate
Need a shot of your faith come along

    I agree with you xpankfrisst, it does describe a lot of girls, but guys too- yeah, guys can be beautiful-a simple sentence in the whole song, but it seems to stand out.

    I ain't that big a fan of Ash, but the CD wasn't half bad... maybe it was because I bought at the dollar store! (really I did! I got it at the dollar store! I payed 1.07.. they charged me tax...)

    One of my favouritre Ash songs ever, if only causing I wasn't expecting something this raw from them. Plus the chorus lyrics are so fucking pure.

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."

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.

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.
