This sickness, it burns inside me,It sticks in my throat, I'm gonna choke, I can not speak,

Besides it runs the fear of the unknown,
Could this be some reckoning,
Wrath for wrongs I've done commin back to haunt me, The God I have denied his power shown
But now I can't protest although defiant heart it pounds deep in my chest, I know that this will Have its way with me.
For now I chose to go,
I know it just the mind tryin' to interrupt my flow
Intentions all fall down,
My, soul, has, died...

Now this will not, die they warned me, inchurch when I was young I could rely,
If there's a God he's one I've never seen,
And now I just lament,
Did not heed the threat, I played the card that I've been dealt, Like putting out the fire, with gasoline,

For when I use I lose, won't face the fear of life without something abused, now that I'm forced to find another way,

My show, your final, show
A homicide I tried to warn, you should have known,
Now I'll take you with me,
Show, You, MY, Pain..

Feed the need it's not greed,
I figure, So what,
Can I fix the hole that resides deep in this, gut?
Well, I'll fix myself, whatever it takes, I cano not wait.

Come and get it, Come and get it, Get Some, I feed the need that twist my mind, time and time again, you think I play to win, I do know what I'm takin you know I'm fixin ta get some.
Come and get it, Come and get it, Get Some...

    I agree with kadadust, the final verses are rather explanatory.

    My Interpretation

    This song gives me chills...

    I think he's saying he had no reason to believe in God because his life was so shit that why would an all loving God allow all that crap to happen to him and everyone else in the world. He turned to drugs to fill the void in his life, but now that he feels his days are numbered he starts to "Fear the unknown" maybe there is a God and all the bad shit he's done in his life will cause him to burn in Hell forever. He doesn't know what to do but he has no idea how to get off the drugs or if he even knows how to handle life without the drugs. So he just keeps abusing and living in fear.

    God I almost cry when I hear this song.

    Anyone who's not just struggled, but had their life consumed and destroyed by addiction over and over....lost all or most of their friends to overdose, had their family and remaining friends all turn their backs on you, been to jail and/or prison multiple times, been to hundreds of rehabs and halfway houses, been homeless, lost everything and anyone that's ever been important to you, and after all that you still got high....I think they probably understand the song meaning. With the knowledge that all of those previous listed things have already happened because of your addiction and will happen again if you use, and when the love of your life and soulmate, and coincidentally the last person on earth who still loves you and believes in you, tells you that if you use again she will leave and never come back, and when the ER doctor tells you that if you get one more infected absess from shooting dope, he's going to have to take your arm, and you STILL get high..... Then you'll truly know what this songs about (one armed mic drop)....

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.

Mental Istid
Ebba Grön
This is one of my favorite songs.

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

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
