I was walking down the street
With my chains tied up to my feet
I leaned instead of jiggie with the sidewalk
Now this street tells the same old boring tale
That has failed in so many ways of life
To trust its stories you've got to be dull as them

And all the love I've got in here you've just killed
You peasants didn't even care
The love I had in store you raped for more
And all the dreams I had in here you've just stolen
You peasants didn't even care
But the dreams I had for her you cannot touch, my golden hand
'Cause it's guarded by your promises
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I met her in a crowded room where the bookshelves help you and knowledge takes your hand
I watched her beauty from an armchair
I said, "Hey girl, have you seen that film with those kids in New York in the eighties
Oh, you have, "Well, can I watch it with you anyway"

And all the love I've got in here you've just killed
You peasants didn't even care
The love I had in store you raped for more
And all the dreams I had in here you've just stolen
You peasants didn't even care
But the dreams I had for her you cannot touch, my golden hand
'Cause it's guarded by your promises
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

Congratulations Mr. Major you saviour, betrayer, you stinking master of trusts
How does it feel to ride all those horses?
You cannot touch our hearts when we're in bloom
I assume that we'll win over the heads again
We conceal none, you'll feel none, that's what I promise
And all the love we've got in store, you can't kill you peasants!
We won it all
And the love I have for her you cannot touch, my golden hand
'Cause it's guarded by your filthy promises

And all the love I've got in here you've just killed
You peasants didn't even care
The love I had in store you raped for more
And all the dreams I had in here you've just stolen
You peasants didn't even care
But the dreams I had for her you cannot touch, my golden hand
'Cause it's guarded by your promises
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Honey I love you, like the summer falls
And the winter crawls
You're above and beyond me

Honey I love you, like the summer falls
And the winter crawls
You're above and beyond me

Honey I love you, like the summer falls
And the winter crawls
You're above and beyond me

    i can't believe no one has commented on this song. Mando Diao is ment! A very unique way of expressing "don't touch her, she's mine"

    i love mando diao. they are one of my favourite bands in the world. they are becoming famous at the time here in germany. when i saw a gig in berlin, the singer said something like 'This is mando diao. this song is what the band mando diao is all about' before they played that song. that was great.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."

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.
