Close your eyes and jump
You wanna fly?
Close your eyes and jump!

You betta check your pulse
I think the hearse went by!

Yo shut the fuck up and listen
Before you're down to nothing without a pot to piss in
You're missin' the point that I'm mapping on this chart
Everything we could be, everything we're not
Come on, give it all you got! All I've got is an excuse
A noose for my hurt - feel it jerking me loose
Been lathing abuse and it's breaking me up
I'm bordering final and enough's enough
You keep sucking on your own dick you're bound to break your neck
I think that I detect a sick sign of self respect
What did I expect? I expected so much more from myself
So why can't I open my eyes? I think I'm fucking DEAD

You betta check your pulse
I THINK THE HEARSE WENT BY

We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)
Unborn
We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)
Unborn

Dressed like a costume party, everybody in disguise
See the mask on your face but it won’t hide your eyes
My demise marks my birth, unborn into light
Now you wanna take me show me wrong from right?
Well you can kiss my paraphelia
And you can kiss my sadicide
I wanna thank you for your welcome
Let me carve the shit out from inside
It’s only a dream, cry yourself back to sleep
Let your mind seep down where all secrets keep
Deep beneath the calm surface a serpent’s eyes
(Opening wide) A breath of death in its lies!

We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)
Unborn
We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)

Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again

Kiss my paraphilia
Kiss my sadicide
Thank you for your welcome
Let me carve the shit out from inside
That old man, damn he sure can talk
He said that I fucked Jesus in a trailer park
'n that ain’t the truth, it was the ritz hotel
I wore a condom so I wouldn’t burn in hell

Maybe I’m dead

You betta check your pulse I think the hearse went by
Denial still stings in these lifeless eyes

We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)
Unborn
We all fall we all we all fall down (crucified)
We all fall, we're all falling, falling down (purified)
We all fall we all we all fall down (lullaby)

Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
Unborn
Unborn and I'm born again
UNBORN!
(And I'm born again, and I'm born again, and I'm born again...)

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Ed Sheeran
“Head > 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.
