I'll tell you once
I'll tell you twice
You better wise up Janet Weiss
Your apple pie don't taste too nice
You better wise up Janet Weiss

I've laid the seed
It should be all you need
You're as sensual as a pencil
Wound up like an E or first string
When we made it did you hear a bell ring?

You got a block
Well take my advice
You better wise up Janet Weiss
The transducer
Will seduce ya
It's something you'll get used to
A mental mind-fuck can be nice

Janet: My feet! I can't move my feet!

Dr Scott: My wheels! My god, I can't move my wheels!

Brad: It's almost as if we're glued to the spot!

Frank: You are, so quake with fear you tiny fools!

Janet: We're trapped!
Dr Scott: You won't find earth people quite the easy mark you imagine. This sonic transducer, is I suppose, some kind of audio-vibratory, physio-molecular transport device

Brad: You mean...

Dr Scott: Yes, brad. It's something we ourselves have been working on for quite some time, but it seems our friend here has found a means of perfecting it. A device which is capable of breaking down solid matter and then projecting it through space, and who knows, perhaps even time itself!

Janet: You mean he's gonna send us to another planet?

Frank: Planet schmanet Janet
You better wise up Janet Weiss
Build your thighs up
You better wise up

Narrator: And then she cries out
Janet: STOP!

    "You're a hot dog! But you better not try to hurt her, FrankFURTER!" (does awkward double-punch to the air)

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
