I realize time's ticking by
Change what I am
This way I feel it
Like me now, like you now, like me now

The faces change
Hides in the shade
I can't fear the way back into you
Hide everything that's helping me
Why can't you just let me fall apart?

[Chorus]

The colors fade
Casued bloody days
Now you know the truth about your friends
Just where they are
And where they lie
Why can't I was the blood off my hands?

[Chorus]

So, you think I'm nothing
But you'll see
Dead like me
I got this feeling in my chest
That I'm free
Dead like me
You'll see
I showed you inside of my dream
You'll see
I showed you inside of my dream
You'll see
But it's my turn

You saw me dying
You want to sell you soul to those men
You will risk us all
If there is one thing I've got to tell you
You say you're cold
But it's bullshit
Alone again
I said we'll beat them all

[Repeat Chorus]

All the pain, it satisfies my dreams and thirst
I never try to help you or your filthy friends
I'll awlays hate you till the end

    The song is about killing your girlfriends friends for ruining your relationship by the spread of rumors and word of mouth. Matt was in a relationship with a girl while he was in Nothingface and his girlfriends friends were always telling his g/f how he is out on the road and cares more about his music than her, and he could be out there doing anything behind her back. Pretty much they manipulated her into breaking up with him, and this is him singing about how things might have worked out if he would have just killed her friends.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
