Man, I love you guys
Man shut the fuck up man. why you always gotta ruin the moment?
Man fuck you.
Ain't nothin' here left for me so I'm out this bitch
Fuck stayin' here.
I'm busting the fuck out now
We out this motherfucker right now

There's no story that ain't been told
There's no gimmick that ain't been sold
Ain't no ocean that ain't been swam
Ain't no jobber that ain't been slammed
There's no road that never been traveled
There's no doctor that ain't been baffled
Ain't no thug that never cried
Ain't no preacher that never lied
There's no rumor that ain't been passed
Ain't no question that no one's asked
There's no trees that ain't been chopped
There's no bomb that wont get dropped
Ain't no paths that no one's been laid
Ain't no beast that ain't been afraid
No feat that no one can
There's no saga that never began

Ain't no snow that didn't melt
There's no punch that ain't been felt
There's no skill that no one's learned
There's no planet that he ain't turned
There's no view that never dissolved
There's no problem that ain't been solved
There's no tail that no one's told
There's no beauty that won't get old
There's no garden that the sun ain't beamed on
There's no shoulder that ain't been leaned on
There's no color that ain't been seen
Purple red yellow blue forest green
There's no desert that ain't seen rain
Nobody here that ain't felt pain
There's no bigot that ain't been clowned
There's no treasure that I ain't found
Ain't no gate they never explored
Ain't no mother that ain't been ignored
There's no leader that ain't been lead
There's no blood that ain't been shed
There's no dish they never made
No brick they never laid
Everything left's been done before
Nothings new, nowhere to explore

On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
Wont you let me on, wont you let me on, wont you let me on

Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
Hey Jake Jeckel fly twist and spin to the other side
On the day when the wagon's come I just pray that you let me on
Wont you let me on, wont you let me on...

    This is probably one of the best ICP songs that there is, it's so powerful.

    very nice song, does anyone else think he's talking about God (or going to heaven) when he sings about the wagons?

    Jack and Jake are representations of good and evil. Just like the little angel and devil dudes that pop onto people shoulders in cartoons when someone makes a big choice. The difference here is that they don't show up all the time. They just take care of you after your dead.

    This is a great song, and ICP did a nice job doing a slow, and sentimental song. It goes to show that "there ain't no singer that ain't got sentimental." Excellent song.

    This is one of my favorite songs by ICP because yet again, it made me think. I went onto the net and found these lyrics and thought about each line that's been said. I even made a couple of my friends listen to it who ain't much into ICP, and they sat there wondering about these words as well.

    He's talking about the wagons taking him to heaven because "There's no bomb that won't get dropped" and "Ain't no preacher that never lied "

    The Wagons is like the ones who come and cart your soul away for the trip to heaven or hell apparently. That being that Jake and Jack (that is your soul,) judge whether youre going to heaven or hell. But I´m not so sure how it all works out with each jokers card and how they all come into play.

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."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

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.
