If I could be anything at all
I'd be an angel spread my wings and fly away
But I'm stuck here on the ground
So I'll see you around
You'll hear me piss and moan and complain

If I could be anything at all
I'd be an angel spread my wings and fly away
But I'm stuck here on the ground
So I'll see you around
You'll hear me piss and moan and complain

I coulda guessed the day would come
That you would consider me scum
The day is here, all the signs were there
And I always prayed that you would stay
But instead you walked away
The feeling's gone, the pain dwells on

Long days long nights
The feelings just not right
I pick up a pen and pad and I start to write
Thinking about our last fight
It was a cold and rainy night

I coulda guessed the day would come
That you would consider me scum
The day is here, all the signs were there
And I always prayed that you would stay
But instead you walked away
The feeling's gone, the pain dwells on and on and on
The pain dwells on and on

I coulda guessed the day would come
That you would consider me scum
The day is here, all the signs were there
And I always prayed that you would stay
But instead you walked away
The feeling's gone, the pain dwells on and on and on
The pain dwells on and on

    yeah, they are great live. i didn't really pay attention to them the first time i saw them live though. i liked them, and i bought thier new cd the first day it came out, but i was like, "YEAH!!!GOOD CHARLOTTE!" so i didn't really foucus on them. then i really got into mest after that time, cuz they rocked even if i was out of it. then i just saw them again a few weeks ago. they're so fucking awesome. and they're really nice...could be the pot though...

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
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.
