You know
You say that you'd be satisfied
But it's all right
The pills
It's all you have with all the pain
To satisfy
Alone
I feel just as numb, don't you know
But it's all right
It's soft
The heat and the smoke take you in
It satisfies
No, it's so cold now

Please, in the sky
Let it fall
Let if all to me
In these words
In these eyes
Let it all be freed

It's clean
The skin and the dreams help me bleed
But it's all right
The screen has sucked all I am
I'm a shell
It satisfies
My ink
Shows I can't learn a thing
And it's all right
I know
That this wasn't much, just a fling
It satisfied
No, it's so cold now

Please, in the sky
Let it fall
Let if all to me
In these words
In these eyes
Let it all be freed

So I can't be the one that peels away
But it's heavy, and I feel it
So wait, I knew it
But I'm guilty though
And I can see them tearing away
Your flesh, no
Killed in the rain that day
Just like everyday
Won't you wait for me
It's not over
Go back again
You policed again
Killed it all
Can't wait for violence
If you're open handed
You'll see still lie in my face
I can't wait for violence
You know you say that you'd be satisfied
But it's all right
The pills
It's all you have with all the pain
To satisfy

Alone
I feel just as numb, don't you know
But it's all right
It's soft
The heat and the smoke take you in
It satisfies
Yeah

    This song damn good, but only if you like hard shit. I don't know exactly what it means, but is sure as hell is a good mosh song. I get chills when he sings "I can't wait for violence", and the funny thing is, that's like the softest part of the song.

    He refers to suicide, and a psychotic state of mind. The pills he is talkin bout, sedate him and calm him down.. When he sings "i cant wait for violene" he wants to kill. He wants to hurt.....

    This is indeed a pissed off song....

    this shows what Nothingface is capable of, EVERYTHING... hard shit with melody, and a kick ass riff to back the lyrics, even though the lyrics can be kinda confusing...but still this song is one of Nothingface's best

    The pills are a temporary answer to his problems. He describes the way the pills make him feel, it's so cold now. He looks to the skys for his answer. But, his attempts to find himself have failed, he erupts and chooses his own ways of violence to give himself what he feels is the answer. I'm not sure if this is what he meant, but atleast this is what I get from it...

    To me, this song is about man's unending infatuation with violence. Every problem in this world is solved through the use of violence and Matt is kinda mocking the human race about it.

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."

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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
