Bitch, you'd better buck-buck-buckle up, prepare for this impact
Car crash, whiplash, bam, snap your neck back in half
Why can't I just be realistic?
Give 'em what they want and make the biddies go ballistic

Sadistic motherfuckers playing complicated
Well never underestimate the underestimated
Opinionated, elevated, sticking to my guns
And I think you're gonna get just what you got coming

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

Yo, can I ask you something?
What the fuck is up man?
You got nothing, it's just a fairy tale you're stuck in
I'm sucking from that 7 on 7

Pumping and roughing up all of these fakes that be bluffing
Nothing you can say could ever take this away now
Stay down
Stay the fuck away from this playground

Lyrical hijack, put my madness to my method
Check it, mic in my hand, nah, more like a lethal weapon

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

What you got, what you got, what you got
what you, what you, what you

Go blind, bring the drums
Better yet, here we come
You take back what you done or you can tuck tail and run
Ready or not, find yourself
And if you dare stop running
I think you're gonna get just what you got coming, bring it

You're gonna get just what you got, what you got?
You're gonna get just what you got, what you got?
You're gonna get just what you got, what you got?
You're gonna get just what you got coming

So what the fuck you got?

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

That's the penalty
That's the penalty
Payback's a bitch so you best keep running
That's the penalty
That's the penalty
It's what you got, what you got, what you got coming

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
