These eyes are burning through the walls.
My wings are like a, my wings are like a shield of steel.
Deflecting any death rays from a girl.
Purple Y-fronts without the hole.
What do I do? What do I do when I need to go?
(When I need to go?)
What do I do? What do I do? What do I do when I need to,
(When I need to, when I need to go?)

Step back, you'll never lay a finger on me.
We are willing, we are ready to be free.
Step back, you'll never lay a finger, (On me.)
Stop right here because we strike covertly.
(Just a warning we strike covertly.)
Step back, you'll never lay a finger on me.
We are willing, we are ready to be free.
Step back, you'll never lay a finger,
You'll never lay a finger, you'll never lay a finger on me.

I've got crooked teeth (I've got crooked teeth.)
And not much hair (And not much hair.)
I still blow on ice cream (I still blow on ice cream.)
And man tits developed through picnics like Yogi Bear.
Boo Boo, I fucking love kebab meat and,
Doo doo, when you/I shit in my/your mouth.
I am Sam from The Lord Of The Rings,
Doner, shish, pepperami or chicken wings.

Step back, you'll never lay a finger on me.
We are willing, we are ready to be free.
Step back, you'll never lay a finger, (On me.)
Stop right here because we strike covertly.
(Just a warning we strike covertly.)
Step back, you'll never lay a finger on me.
We are willing, we are ready to be free.
Step back, you'll never lay a finger,
You'll never lay a finger, you'll never lay a finger on me.

    The inlay notes say: "(Following his complaint, Neil Draycott would like to make it clear that he does not "Fucking love kebab meat", however, Chas made him sing it for making disparaging remarks about Star Treck, which with the exception of Ben, the rest of the band think is a load of shit.)"

    this song is about "a crap superhero" or by the looks of the lyrics a number of different ones. a comic book based on this song has been drawn by a local artist called Jonny Red Create To Destroy is his website which shows some of the frames. If you get a chance grab a copy.

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”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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/
