Bend me, shape me
Misdirect me
It's all the same to me
Look at all this useless talk
Look at all this useless talk
Look at all this useless talk
Upon the cross

You look at me
But you don't see
Understand I'm a sinner
Don't corner me
Don't lecture me
Raise your hands
You're a sinner

Is this everything you wanted
Find another dream
You never hear a word I say
You never hear a word I say
You never hear a word I say
So pray

You look at me
But you don't see
Understand I'm a sinner
Don't corner me
Don't lecture me
Raise your hands
You're a sinner

I'm a sinner
Look at all these people in front of me
Look at all these people in front of me
Look at all these people in front of me
Look at all these people in front of me
How

You look at me
But you don't see
Understand I'm a sinner
Don't corner me
Don't lecture me
Raise your hands
You're a sinner

You look at me (you look at me)
Don't corner me
You look at me (you look at me)
Raise your hands
You're a sinner

    I think that it is about society trying to get someone to conform to their standards. When it says "Bend me, shape me, misdirect me" and "look at all this useless talk", I think it is about a certain class looking down on others. But when it says "raise your hands, you're a sinner", he is telling them that they are just as imperfect as he is.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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.
