Destroy all girls, wow

T O O, ow
Ugh, ow
Ugh, uh, ow, ow, ow, ow

Nomadic honeymooners pick up hitchhiker
Shackin' up, shakin' down
Stagin' ramshackle run on every caravan front
Shackin' up, shakin' down
Carnal carnage up and down the coast
Finger in dyke and hand on post
Make a boy all hot and bothered
Thighs like water runnin' sore
Quivering crotch head and key to the door

Him say D E S T R O Y
Destroy all girls
Pigswill fly with blood tonight
Pigswill fly with blood tonight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight, wow

Left him John Hancock in her blood on that
Sweaty pink sheet
That bloodstain's burnin', burnin', burnin'
Burnin', burnin' hole in him meat
Smearin' pigswill with her pants on the white plaster wall
With menstrual blood
Pigswill stagger across the hall
Checkin' outta motel carnage, and havin' a ball
On a storm black blooded night pigswill murder on him mind

Him cry out D E S T R O Y
Destroy all girls
Destroy, destroy, destroy, destroy
Destroy, destroy, destroy, ooh

Shark fins slashin' at the mission rails
Salty liquid diet and rusty nails
Shark bite and a snake teeth
Crawlin' with maggots, grimy gold leaf
The bladder and bowels of poverty
For a roving cataract to see
Five years without an anchor
Suitcase full of contraband
Making a virtue out of sin
Siphoning the sea of the damned
Thou shalt not stick it out
If you ain't gonna share it

Pigswill murder on him mind
Man of marble, flesh and clay
Pigswill climb up black boot hill
Lord of all that he surveys
Sweet sticky smell of blood, still fresh on him, hand and chest
Bloody skirts a-flappin' on the flagpole tonight, oh

Destroy, destroy, destroy, destroy
Destroy all girls

Pigswill fly with blood tonight
Meat in shower with kitchen knife
Pigswill weatherin' the flood
Pigswill fly the flag of blood

There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight
Skirts-a-flappin' on the flagpole tonight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight
Destroy, destroy

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
