Fuck, I'm drunk, but I'm on my knees
The police stopped chasing
I'm her new cool meat
She pops the trunk and she removes me
And a machine takes pictures of us
Now my jaw and my teeth hurt
I'm choking from gnawing on the ball

And just before I come to
Move to the back of the car
She made me touch the machine
New murderer, fuck 'em

First, untie me
Untie me for now
You said you would, right?
And you were right

(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
Soon this will be all over
Well, I hope soon, she sang
Soon this will be all over
Well, I hope soon, so she sang

(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
So she sang
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
So she sang
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
So she sang
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)
(Soon I'll let you go, soon I'll let you go)

    "FUCK I'm drunk, But I'm on my knees, The Police stopped chasing, I'm her new cool meat,

    She pops the trunk, And she removes me, The machine takes pictures of us, My jaw and my teeth hurt, I'm choking, from gnawing, on the ball,

    And just before I come to, Move to the back of the car, She made me touch the machine, New murderer,(FUCK)

    First, untie me, Untie me for now, You said you would, right? And you were, right? (Soon I'll let you go...) x4 Soon, this will be all over, Well I hope, soon... So she sang, Soon I'll let you go...x4 So she sang, Soon I'll let you go...x4 So she sang, WELL FUCK!!"

    These are the actual lyrics and i think that this song is about how a girl take hostage a guy and the cops are chasing but she stops...and they are at a standoff...and the cops are pointing their guns at the vehicle looking through the scopes (the machines take pictures of us) and the girl is armed and being that women are trusted OVER men in these kinds of situations she makes HIM touch the gun for HIS prints (She makes me touch the machine, new murderer, FUCK)...Get it...lol...

    That's ridiculous... you guys arguing and getting all worked up about the pronunciation. I'm Brazilian and I read another Brazilian dude up there remarking it correctly.

    1) It's actually pronounced "fay.tee.say.ra" with the stress on "say" and please note that the "ra" has the "r" like in "compadre".

    That's what linguists determine as "fricative r". In Brazilian Portuguese [x], [ʁ] and [h] are realization variant of /r/.

    For forther references, I found a post which could actually help the ones struggling that much to pronouce it correctly: forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php

    2) There was indeed a character named "Feiticeira". Y'know, she was from one of all those stupid tv programs we've got here in Brazil where half-naked women incite you gringos to dream about a tropical harem. And she has absolutely nothing to do with the song. I don't know where the fuck do you guys take these ideas from. Chino just like the name. Wtf...!

    3) "Feiticeira" and "Bruxa" are just the same. Yeah, they're synonyms you dumbasses - and both goes for "Witch".

    4) As you all may well know, Chino's got his squire Max Cavalera really close to himself. Y'know Max from Sepultura. He is Brazilian. And just for being both latinos - at least in some part for Chino, eh?, that's just pretty ok using those names.

    Well, this song rules IMO, one of my favs just like street carp, rx queen, be quiet and drive, kimdracula... oh fuck, there are too many of "best songs" to cite and quote. And that's what really matters.

    This song rocks so hard. It's one of the sexiest rock & roll songs I've ever heard. It may be about him being kidnapped, but it's got heavy sexual connotations. This song great.

    "She made me touch the machine..."

    Awesome.

    What I get from this song is that she's obviously committed a crime, and the narrator of the song was a witness with photo evidence. Maybe she committed a crime like robbing a bank, where you have hostages and a police standoff and escaped through the back and after a police chase she has escaped the scene of the crime. Since the witness has seen what happened and may or may not have evidence, she frames him for the crime. She says she'll let him go, but in the end it is unknown if she ever does.

    I've also seen some people comment on the obscenities left out of the song and I wouldn't blame the person who posted these lyrics for that, because the lyrics posted are exactly how they're written in the White Pony booklet.

    Anywho, that's just my point of view on things.

    This reminds me of the film "Jawbreaker" as the girls in the film do exactly the same to of their friends as the girl in this song does to the guy.

    "the working title was new murderer, the name itself is some Brazilian name that I read in a magazine and just liked. its loosely based on the scenario of being taken captive. it's completely fictional. I want people to listen to it and feel like they're in the situation, because I do put myself in the story. its up the people to listen to it and figure out whether im enjoying myself or not, even though it sounds a little eerie." - Chino

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.
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
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
