Got back out back off the forefront
I never said or got to say bye to my boy
But it's often I try I think about how I'd be screaming
And the times would be bumping

All our minds would be flowing
Taking care of shit like hey 'holmes'
What you needing sometimes life will be coming off whack
And will open your eyes

This has begun
You seen to have some doubt
I feel you next to me, feeling it
Getting spacey with the common love of music

Think of this as the sun and the mind as a tool
But we could bounce back from this one
With attitude will and some spirit
With attitude will and your spirit
We'll shove it aside

Soulfly
Fly high
Soulfly
Fly free

Shut your shit please say what you will
I can't think side step around
I'm bound to the freestyle
Push it down to the ground with a nova dash but they watch you

Now climb up, super slide
The spirit's so low it's coming over you

Soulfly
Fly High
Soulfly
Fly free

You walk into this world

Walk into this world with your head up high
Walk into this world with your head up high
Walk into this world with your head up high
Walk into this world with your head up high
(Headup)

    I'm sorry lesprophetitos, I did not mean to anger you. Your big words and musical knowledge is too great for me. And by the way, Finch considered themselves a Deftones rip-off band before their guitarist Randy joined the band. So much for your Thursday reference. And sweet is another way of saying cool, neat, radical, tubular, gnarley, great, good, I could go on for hours with words that meand the same as sweet. I am very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very sorry that you did not understand what I meant by sweet. Please, for the love of God, forgive my mistake and give me another chance. Also, since you seem to be a musical expert, could you tell me all that you know about music so I don't piss anyone else off? I would hate to have someone else rip apart everything that I wrote. I cried myself to sleep after I read what you wrote. All I ever wanted was to be your friend. Please take me back, I will do anything for your love. I can't take this hate anymore, I want to get back to loving. Love me, Lesprophetitos, love me.

    In this song Max sings "Soul fly!" and that's where he got the name for the band. Oh and it's Max's step-son that died in a car crash. He was called Dana Wells. The album "Around The Fur" is dedicated to him

    It's really sad but uplifting as well. Dana deserved a tribute and he got one. It's fucking brilliant.

    Lmfao rickboge, Max Cavelera not only founded Soulfly but also Sepeltura, way back in the 80's. They where one of the first modern metal bands, back when Metallica and Pantera where not well known.

    And ya, Max makes this song good, one of the only good Deftones songs. Kinda like Maynard James Keenan does with "Passenger" I'm no big fan of Deftones, but this song rocks.

    Max beleives his step son Dana was murdered, but I don't think it's been proven one way or another. Either way, it's a tribute to him.

    Hahaha they consider this song, "Engine Number 9" part 2.

    Only because of the raw energy and how Chino just flows.

    Yes, Dana Wells was the stepson of Max Cavalera and also Chino Morenos best friend. Dana didnt get murdered like... gunshot or something, he got hit by a car, the car was driven by a drunken driver. This song is dedicated to Dana and First Commandment is dedicated to the one who drove the car. Max started Soulfly, well, he got the name Soulfly from this song. "soulfly. fly high. soulfly. fly free"

    Hope I'll get to see this live, would kill everything :P.

    and rickboge...let me laugh :P you got one thing right though, deftones is alternative-metal.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
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.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
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.
