Chorus: Just another one dead and gone (4 times)

A year from now where will I be when I get blasted
I picture myself in a crime house filled with roses on my casket
All my family and friends at my funeral wipin their tears away
Mama screamin wake up Im just restin till another day she falls away
My kids are so confused cause their daddies gone left alone
singin its so hard to say good-bye at the funeral home whats goin on
4 nights and a rainy day to the cemetery found Id be home
come close to a call for mama she sees her baby buried
All shes carried
But Im askin the lord is it ment for me to die this way
Will I live will your words see a brighter day
catch a slug to the head from the infrared
and everybody prays for the ride away is it time to pay
visualize me gunned down mama told me to pass and run from the clan
Didnt know then what I know now

Chorus: Just another one dead and gone (4 times)

Lights flashin guns blastin Nigger assassin
you askin how long Im lastin when a nigger be blasted
Negro means of a Negro
its 187 I know sometimes those Nigs know
Its all about drama
save it for my baby mama
Im gonna tell her
when next summer comes Im gonna be a crack sella
but beat me there goes my fuckin choice and shit
A nigga never be got a chance to put his voice in it
tell me lies Nigga decide what your life is like
you gotta be dealin or sellin some fuckin dope
just to earn some fucking stripes
she said dont go with the flow
and help your hommie get off his kilo
cause they have the neighborhood watchin your ass an the TV show
like Americas Most Wanted well what the fuck they want me for
Except to fight they wars
But I a young nigger with potential
shootin game and shootin niggas thats all fundamental
drug house since other drug house persons goin to jail for others
ounces why he out here free you both seein shit
still three months and a couple of soultrains to help you think
Now how you gonna get over that shit&..I dont know nigga

Chorus: Just another one dead and gone (4 times)

I see image in the sky
is it me I cant believe my soul would ever die
so please god tell me why
have I committed murder did I commit a sin
have I broke any of your laws shall I repent
Is it to late to go wish my family farewell
before I continue on my journey dont know whether its heaven or hell
all they have is my picture my beloved memory
they still rejoicein upon the times the way I used to be
not a pleasant game I played to keep them happy
I knew of castles never just like my pappy
half this death is commin at me
hangin up my suits slowly diein
cause all the wrong that Ive done to keep my mama cryin
so much longer and if I could return Id read the book of revelations
nigger what Im facin is a no win situation
I guess this world will come to, lord
So let my parents know for them I shed no tears
What hurts the most is when a brother falls
I could see my mama ballin up and family and friends sayin kill em all
tell Biggy Smalls there aint no reason for this homicide
money women and pride took another brother for his life
if you really want to fight put the straps down
stand firm go toe to toe see who survives in this last round
last down so walk away looks like you lost
for the ones who boast
whats the outcome of this roller coast
drive by and retaliation glock infrared
we screw up on it by an inch and hit the babies head
the babies dead an instant victim did you shoot to kill
cause the man was live and gone and the baby still
Mom told me I was a bad ass
but to show my fast tap
lyin never listenin to the bullshit
but the bullshit could have saved me from the three rounds
didnt know then what I know now
attached to my advisements
aware of all this high-tech shit
I lost my daddy in 92 from a drunk driver
and it seem the only thing it did was made me get higher
my oldest brother away from home with shackles on
in 93 we took the ride and lost payin a ton

Just anotha one dead and gone (repeat)

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

No Surprises
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.

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.

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
