I can't believe I hung around with you
All this time
You drove me crazy with your OCD
Girl your out of your mind
I'm counting on UFO's to beam me up
I just don't know
How long I can take this shit
I'm over it girl you gotta go

It's over were over
Just like in crimson and clover
Were sinking and I'm thinking
How the hell did we get so stupid
It's the end ex girlfriend
I don't care what you think of me now
So long your gone
This is the break up song

One more thing before you go
Would you please give me my records back
My bloody valentine, the pixies, cheap trick and back in black
You can keep the dog we bought
But you can't go near the standard bar
Don't hang around
Don't call my friends
They won't know who you are

Its over we're over
Just like in crimson and clover
Were sinking and I'm thinking
How the hell did we get so stupid
It's the end ex girlfriend
I don't care what you think of me now
So long your gone
This is the break up song

So long your gone
This is the break up song

Its over we're over
Just like in crimson and clover
Were sinking and I'm thinking
How the hell did we get so stupid
It's the end ex girlfriend
I don't care what you think of me now
So long your gone
This is the break up song

So long your gone
This is the break up song

its amazing how far music can come.. 24 years after it released and its one of the most heartfelt songs ive heard
Album art
Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.
Album art
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.
