Respect
Respect is what is found
Respect should be abound
Respect everything that you leave

(I can't believe)
Can't believe

And I, I can't believe
I can't believe all the travesty
Surrounding me, I, I want to flee
I want to flee from everything
In front of me!

Can't believe

Never again, trusted in you
Fuck everything that you think I should be
I stand, never again, never again

Can't believe

    In particular, he was upset that 12-13 year old girls in the crowds were having their clothes ripped off their bodies in the mosh pits.

    To metallaci: You seem to have put alot of effort into your remix. The meaning of it is unclear, but it seems like more whining about your parents just trying to be good parents. Or if it's about your girlfriend, just break up with her. The meaning of the original song from Aaron Lewis himself: "'Can't Believe' is a reply to the blatant disrespect for human beings that I see every night at our shows. It's like f@%&ing 'Lord Of The Flies' sometimes. I see little 12, 13 year old girls basically getting r@%ed on top of the crowd, getting their clothes torn off them, clutching themselves. Just terrible, terrible s&!% that I see. Just blatant disrespect for the people around you. You know it's somebody's little sister, it's somebody's daughter. Where the f@%& did you come up with the idea that you think it's okay to do that just because you're at a concert? It goes to show that the most important job in the whole world, which is being a parent, has been completely forgotten about. People have forgotten how to be parents. That's like the beginning of the end. You wait. If s&!% doesn't change, you wait and see what it's like in 20 years." This is the perfect way to describe what goes on at concerts. Why do people use rock music as an excuse to r@%< a girl that just happens to be standing near them? I do agree that it's just going to get worse in the next several years unless people shape up and learn how to teach their kids how to respect others. As a matter of fact, I believe married couples should be put through tests to see if they are capable of raising a child. That's one way to make a difference in everyone's lives.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head &gt; Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
Album art
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.
