Hiding behind the shadows.
I'll be waiting in the dark,
to drive this blade straight through your heart.
I'll drag your body to the car,
as blood races down my arm.
I think everyone will wonder where you are tonight.

I'll hide you in my walls.
Your body will never be found.
I'll wear your skin as a suit.
Pretend to be you.
Your friends will like you more than they used to.

Dear diary,
My teen angst bullshit has a body count.
I believe it's 6 going on 7 now, 7 now.

I'll be dreaming about you,
In a pool of your own bloow.
With your eyes gouged out,
By the work of my thumbs.
The scent of your insides,
From under the floor boards.
Is the perfect perfume for settling the score.

I'll hide you in my walls.
Your body will never be found.
I'll wear your skin as a suit.
Pretend to be you.
Your friends will like you more than they used to.
Pretend to be you.
Your friends will like you more than they used to.

Ride the wings of.
Ride the wings of.
Ride the wings of.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.
Ride the wings of pestilence.

Cajun Girl
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."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Amazing
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.
