Funny feeling my guts intuition doesn't know
No bravery could convince you
To more or less say no
Your explanation hasn't gone over yet
But I'll give you one more chance

To open up and just let go
There's no easier way out of this place
I'm claiming this lie to you
Face to face to face to

That's no way for you to treat me my dear
Someone you chose to lie to all these years
There is no other title that I can find for us
Even though you can believe that this could
Work and bleed and breathe and be for us
Your interpretation of my expectations
Caught up in your picture frame

Have defined my eyes and made me turn up down and inside
There's no easier way out of this place
I'm claiming this lie to you face to face to face to
That's no way for you to treat me my dear
Someone you chose to lie to all these years
It's gonna take a lot to get you to completely

Forgive me for letting you down
I'm not exactly what I really was back then
Played along for so long
Then you saw what I really was I was wrong for so long

What do I do with my other type of slum life
So on to you delight
For the rest of the night I'm yours
Whatever you want
From every pore I give you my life

    As I understand it, this song is about a relationship turned sour over time due to one person being insincere and "two faced".

    "I'm claiming this lie to you face to face to face to..."

    The relationship is coming to an important point as one partner decides to confront the other about these 'lies'.

    Quality tune from Nonpoint; one of their best.

    This one rocks* Great way to let out angst accumulated from liars and decievers...on to the meaning. these aren't all the lyrics

    Read it like this:

    There's no easier way out of this place, I'm claiming this lie to you face to face to face to (I'm claiming this lie on you, face to face, for you to face to...

    -The chorus explains the song... That's no way to treat me dear, Someone you chose to lie to, all these years

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."

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
