Kick the kick drum increase the weight of the sound
The dialog of maximum decibels is enough to move the fucking ground
I'm gonna amplify the rage of a class
That's thought inferior the message in the volume
This song a carrier

Unwritten rules
Rules understood
Unwritten rules

Boomin' out the speakers and amps in the hood
I like to drink beer play music and go to shows
It's not about paying your dues if you do it out of love
I'm not a jaded junkie running dry
I don't know anything else
I'll be playing till I die

    This song is so kick ass. I really think it's mostly about how playing music breaks down all barriers and has it's uncontainable. Thus, making it have no rules. Something along those lines.

    I understand that this song is about getting a message out through music but I don't know what unwritten rules have to do with it. Same thing with "Outta my Mind." I don't know what the rest of the lyrics have to do with that.

    Maybe the "unwritten rules" refers to unwritten rules of acceptance in the punk community, or the unwritten rules of how people unite with music.

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”
