Shout shout let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on I'm talking to you come on
Shout shout let it all out

These are the things I can do without
Come on I'm talking to you come on
In violent times you shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white they really really ought to know

Those one track minds that took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye you shouldn't have to jump for joy
You shouldn't have to jump for joy, you shouldn't have to shout for joy
Shout, shout, let it all out

These are the things I can do without
Come one, I'm talking to you, come on
They gave you life
And in return you gave them hell

As cold as ice
I hope we live to tell the tale
I hope we live to tell the tale
Shout, shout, let it all out

These are the things I can do without
Come on, I'm talking to you, come on
Will you never shout
I feel as though you're never gonna let it all out

Will you never shout'
I feel as though I know
you're never gonna let it all out
Will you never shout'

I feel as though I know you're never gonna let it
And when you've taken down your guard
If I could change your mind
I'd really love to break your heart

I'd really love to break your heart
I'd really love to
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without

Come on, I'm talking to you, come on
I'd really love to
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without

Come on, I'm talking to you, come on

    Since it seems very few have actually said what they believe this song is about, I'll go ahead and share. I believe that this song is about not bottling up your emotions. You should express yourself and screw what other people think. Shout and let it all out

    In reference to the one guy that told us about the RATM album renegades, it was complete shit, Rolling Stones sounds WAY fuckin better than RATM, and anyway out of the eleven or ten songs on that album, I only liked three. And to THIS song, it's awesome, and just because YOU may not like Tears for Fears doesn't mean you have to be a complete douche bag licking, dog fucker to ppl who DO like them. Personally, I hate 80s music, but I'm not gonna go on an asshole tirade on people who do like it. So anybody that does that kind of "Ur moosik sux" bullshit can have a nice hot cup of SHUT THE FUCK UP, courtesy of me.

    maybe it lacks feeling for a reason, maybe theyre trying to make a point. like sarcasm in a song ya know... its like if you dont stand up for what you believe ur weak so "Shout" like... hinting that ppl say they shout but its weak. idk, just a thought. they probably have little emotion for a reason im just saying.

    Disturbed is awesome. They took this eighties song and refined it and put there special touch on it and made it into one kick ass song.

    The Tears For Fears version makes me laugh because it's so 80's... and then I can never fully get over it when I'm listening to Shout 2000.

    "Shooouut... shoooUuUUt lllllleddit all ooooouuut" - It always sounds kinda gay when Tears sing it... dunno why I think that... but hey there it is.

    A pity - because other than that I can tell that it's a great heavy song.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
