As if the word was ending
Things seem to spin uncontrolled
They're all paper faces
Some withered, not old
Some legends uproot evil
Some made of silver, and gold
But why is brimstone worthless
When we're all so cold

No, you showed it all before me
You threw it in my face
But still I can't believe you're not at fault
Circumstance allowed me
To seek out my revenge
When I find you I'll feel peace again

I see no love from Angels
I saw no love in the past
I thought you made us perfect
I guess you're laughing last
Your thoughts don't seem much better
But still you're better than us
Why don't you check your mirror?
Will it break your trust?

No, you showed it all before me
You threw it in my face
But still I can't believe you're not at fault
Circumstance allowed me
To seek out my revenge
When I find you I'll feel peace again

Instilled the ways of hate
I understand that it is too late
To save you know
From all the dirt in hell
There, you saw it, you know it's all inside the eyes
The eye's weakness, and sadness
To feel you've burned alive

I forgot I could feel it
And fear it, and be it
The thought that I'm alive
Unchanging my standing
I feel used up inside

I can't bear anymore
The screams have fought
Into my dreams
And the snakes
They speak just like me

I see love from Angels
I saw no love in the past
I thought you made us perfect
I guess you're laughing last
Some legends uproot evil
Some made of silver, and gold
But why is brimstone worthless
When we're all so cold

Fuck

    I see love from Angels I saw no love in the past I thought you made us perfect I guess you're laughing last Some legends uproot evil Some made of silver & gold But why is brimestone worthless When we're all so cold

    I think tht pretty much sums things up. Maybe god wasn't there when he was needed. And so Matt's left feeling empty, alone, and cold...asking why is brimestone (Hell) such a bad thing. At least it fills the hole god left in him. I guess everyone has something to keep them warm at night.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
