Don't believe a word,
A word they say.

It's more than a T-shirt,
It's more than a tattoo,
It's more than a phase.
This is how I was raised.

You keep trying to market this feeling.
I heard what you said,
And no were not the same,
No were not the same.

You'll never be a part (of what we have),
You'll never sing a song (that we love),
You'll never get respect,
And you cant fool us
Cause we know what you are.
Dont believe a word,
A word they fucking say!

    I think this is like the intros that bands like AFI do. I think it's making fun of them. Yeah....

    I love the speed this song goes at, and the shouting in the background! It sounds like they're criticising bands who got in on the pop-punk popularity explosion to make money.

    General Comment had a great comment until the last statement; GC and Simple Plan are good bands that just made it big. I totally agree with NFG in this intro song but still dont hate on bands that have success, especially good charlotte, those kids busted their ass and went through some tough times and deserve all the success they've had

    GC and Simple plan didn't make themselves, they were made by producers and promoters. You dont make yourself off of a couple of full lengths, have you ever heard of originality?

    Okay, I was gonna keep my mouth shut but a can't.

    First, about the song. Awesome, if they had left the f-word out. It's so tasteless. Frankly I'm surprised at them for putting it in there.

    Second- about GC and Simple Plan. The hell they didn't make themselves. Those kids worked their asses off to get where they did. And just because they have five people in the band, and have similar musical taste, doesn't make them unoriginal. They each have amazing lyrics.

    I have had the pleasure to meet both bands and I must say that I am very proud of what they have accomplished and they deserve it all. They are amazing people and they don't take ONE BIT of their success for granted.

    So don't hate on them.

    Think the 'f' word is put in to show that the current market is all radio and mtv 'friendly'. And that people compare the softer, manufactured bands, they are singing about here to nfg cause they don't swear either. Just NFG wanna say that they aren't pop child friendly music, they just don't use swear words because they, like you said make it sound tasteless.... at least thats my opinion.

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
