Here where the dream of eden waits
The rivers running easy
In their valleys they are slumbering

There the mysteries reveal
By the clearness I can feel
And an island in the stream appears before my eyes

I am hunting lonesome traces in the sand
And someone speaks my name from far away

The ruins of yesterday will disappear
I will reach for the sources of light
As we are all finding our new hemisphere
I am turning just yearning to feel
Feel your dreams, don't toss them away

[Chorus]
Ancient myth arcana, Elysian seas of time
The stones of wisdom shine again, the moonlight hides the rhyme
In long gone days of yore, one thousand years before
The odyssey was in our dreams, arcana we explore

Here I can feel the inner flame
Could forget what we became
And the false mirages can't deceive, deceive me no more

I am facing countless shadows in despair
But I won't follow them into the gloomy calm aside of light

[Chorus]

Thorns of roses that I feel, secrecy under the seal
Hear the tolling of the bell, bring me under your spell

See the mysteries in twilight they're turning away
From darkness to light (into infinity)

Here where the dreams of Eden's near
Leaving to a distant sphere
To Elysian seas of time we ride
I am longing for infinity
Arcana, arcana

Tonight this journey seals my fate
Far beyond the open gate
To the secret places never seen before
For this final odyssey into
Arcana, arcana

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.

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."

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.
