We would like to invite you on a journey
A tale of an instrument of death
Watch us as we pass the axe.

(Blaze)
I took the axe off the shelf in the tool shed
It’s telling me I gotta fuckin bloody the misled
My victim approached
Cut her head off at the throat
She was a hooker with AIDS
Spreading disease like it was dope
Cut the head off her pimp
Before he started to trash talk
Two bodies in my trunk and police on a manhunt
I’m on the loose again
They chasing me for blocks
Seen a homie on the street
So I passed the axe to Madrox

(Madrox)
I took the axe
What the fuck am I supposed to do with that?
It’s all bloody
And it looks like its been in and out of someone’s back
Grips on the handle, blood dripping down the neck
So I grabbed that bitch like *laugh* bet
Who wanna get halfed up by the half wit
Who got a gang of problems
And don’t give half a shit, bitch
You can fall victim to the double headed fury
Don’t be scared, be worried, man.

(Chorus)
Pass me something sharp and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.
It’s raining, the rain is dark and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.
(I'll Hack you!)

(ABK)
I took the axe back to the shed where I stay
Cleaned off the blood and then sharpened up the blade
Waited ‘til dark and then ran through the hood
And chopped up drunk bums like they’re blocks of wood
I can’t see myself stopping and if I do then I’m dead
And the only way I’m dying is if I sever my own head
Grip on the tip, so my nub won’t slip
And I’m about to fuckin’ pass it to the hands of 2 Dope bitch

(Shaggy)
I took the axe and swang it through like butter
When I cut back you better run, duck, and cover.
You know your jugular well, it’s gone
I blacked out last night and realized in the morning
Gotta dig another hole in the backyard
Run get me a shovel, it ain’t that hard
Understand that I got a hairpin trigger wrist
When I squeeze it off, haha, you get the gist.

(Chorus)
Pass me, something sharp and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.
It’s raining, the rain is dark and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.

(Violent J)
I took the axe
Perhaps I had a relapse
I seen a pretty pretty neck
And I couldn’t relax
I cut through it
I throw knives with precision
But it’s noting like the feeling
Of committing the incision
Flip it over, a radio program
I pound his head into a bloody pizza
With the hammer
Threw it into the sky and let it stick in my back
And passed out at Monoxide’s front porch like that.

(Monoxide)
I took the axe and lost my fucking mind
On this cop who pulled up behind me
I handcuffed him on the side of the street
And started smacking em with it like I was making a beat
Oh God!
Another cop pulled up
So I grabbed the same axe and planted it in his forehead
Two more dead, bloody and dismembered
Now it’s back in the shed and that’s all I remember.

(Chorus)
Pass me, something sharp and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.
It’s raining, the rain is dark and wicked
And I’ll pass it back
Don’t worry I’ll pass it back.
(I'll Hack you!)

The axe that splits so many backs
Its back to the tool shed to relax
Peep that
So many failed with no tale to tell.
And it’s only remembered be the stain they left
On the axe.

    i agree with marcotte. this song is about the bible. im a HUGE juggalo and have heard this song more times than i can remember. just look at the last part of the song...

    The axe that splits so many backs Its back to the tool shed to relax Peep that So many failed with no tale to tell. And it’s only remembered be the stain they left On the axe.

    this is basicly talking about how people have KILLED over the bible and over religious things such as the cruesades and the battle we as americans are fighting to this very day. talks about the "blood on the axe" all through out the song and that signifys the blood spilled in the name of the bible and its teachings.

    many people can missconstrue this song as just crazy ass killa rhymes... but indeed it has a message and if you pay attention to it, you will see it too... just listen and read, youll get it... look at a lot of ICP shit as well as other phsycopathic artists and you will see that its not all just crazy killa klownz on a rampage, it actualy has meaning, just like this song here.

    this is a wicked song and i dont reckons its bout the bible thats just stupid. my favourite part is "I took the axe and lost my fucking mind On this cop who pulled up behind me I handcuffed him on the side of the street And started smacking em with it like I was making a beat" how the hell does that relate to the bible. ive heard of bible bashers but isnt that taking it a little far.

    I don't really care whether it's about the Bible or not but something tells me it isn't. Awesome song though, know it off by heart :P

    I think this song is about judgement. In the first verse Blaze talke about killing a hooker with AIDS. In another ABK is rapping about attacking drunk bums. In the Christian bible promiscuity and drunkeness are sinful. The Axe can be interpetated as judgement or God's wrath.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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/
