A universe to fill
Can't scratch the surface
Now a slow pay
Still why everyone watching
It's like I'm real tired of the clones
I'm real tired of the clones

Whatever you you say
Whatever you say
Whatever you say

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

Where's the space I fill
Where's the sympathy I killed
I need to find a meaning
I'm useless, I'm useless
Trapped inside my own web

Whatever you you say
Whatever you say
Whatever you say

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

When I'm alone
I stare at nothingness
Painful silence
Painful silence kills)

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

Whatever you say
Whatever you say

Bring me a light
Make my life worth something more
Show me a light
Bring a light

    i think its about secluding yourself from everyone else because you got sick of the mainstream, the mundane, everyone trying to be like everyone else, its about individualism and becoming secluded due to it. That's my thoughts at least.

    I think it's really just about feeling useless and overwhelemed, and he doesn't want to listen whenever people tell him not to worry about it (whatever you say). The chorus is asking for someone to give him something to do, so he'll be useful.

    its about the masses and he is trying to convey a message that it is a much better thing to be a leader than a follower (reall tired of the clones). And the repetition of whatever you say simply means i'll go along with what you have to say because Id rather not have to think for myself. And "bring me a light..." is saying that something or someone else is the measurment of your happiness and fufillment. Which is no good, still the song rocks, and if you read the lyrics you find it promotes people to do and think for themselvs.

    oops sry forgot to adress this part of the song the lyrics go: " wheres the spave if fill where the sympathy i killed i need to find a meaning im useless, im useless trapped inside my own web"
    suggesting that sometimes even the speaker of the song falls into that whole trendy, fall into the masses, bullshit. We all have been subjected to this at one point or another, lol its ok.

    Spave? It's misspelt; it's mean to say space.

    I think the song is about the internal struggles of an agnostic, do I believe in god or not, he's waffling. The lyrics alternate back in forth between agreement (belief) and disgreement (disbelief). Broken down some:

     a universe to fill
     cant scratch the surface 
     now a slow pay 
     still whys everyone watching
     its like im real tired of the clones
     im real tired of the clones

    Clones = sheep or believers in a religion

     whatever you you say
     whatever you say
     whatever you say

    Whatever is said in religion your're just supposed to swallow and not question

     bring me a light 
     make my life worth something more
     show me a light
     bring a light

    But he wants to believe in something because his life doesn't have any meaning, show him something so he can believe

     wheres the spave if fill
     where the sympathy i killed
     i need to find a meaning
     im useless, im useless
     trapped inside my own web

    He doesn't know what to believe he feels no meaning in life, useless but he is trapped by his own logic and can't believe. Show him the light something he can believe so he doesn't have to question his beliefs, he wants to believe but not be a sheep.

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.

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
Hayalperest
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.

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.

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.
