Fascination
I want U
Fascination
I want U, I do
Fascination chamber lands on the round that kills
The art U hoped 2 mirror like
Leaves blood upon the sill
The dream U keep dreaming, is better than the life U lead
The papers run out a day and 13 hours, B4 the weed, it's so high

Fascination
Still I want U
Fascination
Still I want U, I do

The head U thought was rolling, is now reason 2 b bored
The rapper that gave that head will thank his manager b4 the lord
And the headache that U moan about feels much better than the treatment would
The pills gonna leave a side effect
That'll take another pill 2 correct
And the whole thing is leaving U feeling less than good
And U still high

Nation
Fascination
Fascination
Fascination

Do U mind if I just watch U shake it
Shake it

Nation
I want U
Fascination
I want U, I do

The most vital thing U thought
Is the epitome of doom
U can wake-up in cold sweat
Cause 1 of them is in U're room
Singin on the tele
Making more bucks than sense
So called king gives birth 2 so called prince

A breakup's bitter taste
Still here when the love is gone
And the breaks U wish 4
Finally comes among in song
Working it out
Work, work, work, working it out
Fascination

    Definitely the best track on the "Truth" CD!

    Song Meaning

    This song is about Michael Jackson. "so called king gives birth to so called Prince" is very obvious. also "work work working it out" is from a Michael Jackson song.

    I think the line above "The most vital thing u thought" is actualy "the most vital thing in pop". and that would make more sense since that is what MJ was always marketted and hyped as.

    I also think the above line that reads "Finally comes among in song" should read "Finally [be]'comes the longest song"

    I think the song is about MJ's homosexual activity causing him stress and turning to drugs.

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.

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.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
