Blast off, home in the dark with heads off
Smoke squares five at a time and won't cough
I like graveyards and beatin' on the voodoo drum
And all you're worried about is where the fuck I'm from
Never existed
Grippin' my axe, double-fisted
And if you blinked you missed it
I'm Twiztid
No love
No hugs
Know 'dap
No friends
No light
Pitch black
All you ever see is the ground beneath me
Broken wings cursin' of my back, please release me
Livin' in hell every day with the vision
That's everybody up on the top but I'm missin'
Listen for the voice in my head to put an end
Or somebody please save my soul and be a friend
Do you really know what it's like to be me, hell naw
Cuz if you did, I wouldn't have to tell y'all
Do you really know what it's like?
Like to be me!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
Like to see what I see!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
See another day!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
To be me!!!

Chained like an animal andlocked in a cage
Situations and memories stored in my brain
Strung out
Shootin' venom make you bug out
Pay attention as I tell you what I'm all about
I'm a walking comic book to spit for mic screams
Livin' day to day is like a helium dream
I'm seldom seen
Walkin' with the dead is time consuming
You know my shit, you know what I'm doing
Now nigga if you took the time
To heed the message and this is more than a rhyme
Maybe you should hit rewind
Silence....is a deadly note
And we all hate the water that kept the boat afloat
It's a sick world
I hate every motherfuckin' body that I see
But I spread it all evenly
You made me how I am
Now you hate who I am
Good God, man

Do you really know what it's like?
Like to be me!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
Like to see what I see!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
See another day!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
To be me!!!

Take these...
...feelings away from me!!
Strip me of everything!!
See me for who I am
Take these...
....feelings away from me!!
I've shown you everything!!
Now you hate who I am!!
Take these...
...feelings away from me!!
Strip me of everything!!
See me for who I am!!
Take these...
...feelings away from me!!
I've shown you everything!!
Now you hate who I am!!

Do you really know what it's like?
Like to be me!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
Like to see what I see!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
See another day!!!
Do you really know what it's like?
To be me!!!

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.

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran

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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
