Framåt marsch, vi tågar över stupets kant
Ett steg framåt och två tillbaks
Systemets slavar, bländade av hat

Driven av en stigande rädsla, jag har ingenting kvar
Ingen utopi ingen kvar att fräsla, när allt hopp har sinat

Jag blir blir kall som is, chockad och stel
Fammlar runt i mörkret, vad var det som gick fel?

Våld och förstörelse vart än man er, vi är bortom allt hopp
Kan inte separera verklighet från dröm, finns det inget stopp

    This is what the band say about this song on their webpage:

    Many factorys are moving their production to places where they make more profit, where workers perhaps lack unions and are easier to exploit. This seems to be a trend in the northern Sweden. Everything is slipping out of our hands, the power of our lives seems to belong to a few choosen. We give and give…but get nothing in return…

    "Forward! We're going over the edge One step forward, two steps back. Slave of the system, blinded by hatred

    Driven by a growing feed, I have nothing left no utopia to save (?), when all hope is gone

    I become stone cold, chocked and stiff straying in darkness, what went wrong?

    Violence and destruction where ever you are (?) - beyond all hope. Cannot separate dream from reality, there's no end"

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
