I want to be in a pop punk band
Tryin' to ride to pop punk land
I know what I'm gonna wear
I'll have spiky pop punk hair

Bore us, bore us, got a stupid chorus
Just can't stop it, got it at hot topic
No need to read the lyric sheet
It's the same old song, the same old harmony

I'm gonna find me a pop punk girl
Its not tough in a pop punk world
A love that can't be bought
I want to sing like tom delonge

Bore us, bore us, got a stupid chorus
Just can't stop it, got it at hot topic
No need to read the lyric sheet
It's the same old song, the same old harmony

I got it at hot topic
My parents dropped me off to pay for it
Get all my ideas from mtv
I got it at hot topic
My parents dropped me off to pay for it
Prepackaged for conformity
So fuck me

Bore us, bore us, got a stupid chorus
Just can't stop it, got it at hot topic
No need to read the lyric sheet
It's the same old song, the same old harmony

    haha, this is a great song...a guy i barely know was driving me home from musical one night (his gf was supposed to give me a ride, but he drove) and said "you'll like this" and, oddly, he was right! it was great...and yeah, the song is kinda pop-punky--irony, baby! thety're completely mocking the genre, adding the music to it just makes it better. and hot topic is way over priced, and more than likely run by guys who give their kids BWMs and buy them a&f stuff to wear...gee, how's come no one's figured out it's just a huge corporation?

    I'm sorry but this song is crap. Musically, the drummer can't drum and the chord progression is simple, not in a cool Green Day way but in a crap, 12 year old songwriter way. And the lyrics also sound like they were written by a pre-teen! The fact that Matt Skiba is in a blatantly pop punk band (Alk3 rule, but c'mon...) just makes the lyrics hypocritical, and how this band got on the Warped Tour with songs like this will remain a mystery to me. Okay, rant over!

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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”

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."
