Have you heard the story?
Have you heard the news?
They say he's coming
You better choose
Visual horror
On the TV screen
Nothing but madness
Ever seen.

I am the beast, evil I will install.
I shall ignite the fire, burn you all!
Enter my blackened kingdom, you'll serve me well.
Turn it up, maximum Satan, straight to hell!

Politicians stealing
Disappearing kids.
Crimes and blackmail
For the winning bids.
Crimes of passion
And crimes of hate.
Buy the new drug
Before it's too late!

I am the beast, evil I will install.
I shall ignite the fire, burn you all!
Enter my blackened kingdom, you'll serve me well.
Turn it up, maximum Satan, straight to hell!

How can you believe this?
The world is like TV!
I'm the supplier
With only negativity!
I am not real
I'm just imagination!
I bleed on the mirror of
Human devastation!

One by one I'll take you down
One by one I'll take you down
One by one I'll take you down
One by one I'll take you down

Natural disaster
You better fear
The end is coming
The end is here

I am the beast, evil I will install.
I shall ignite the fire, burn you all!
Enter my blackened kingdom, you'll serve me well.
Turn it up, maximum Satan, going straight to hell!

    No, it's a lamentation of the mass media's descent into this fear-mongering infotainment shithole that it's currently in.

    [quote] Natural disaster.. You better fear. The end is coming.. THE END IS HERE. [/quote]

    The above quote sums it up best, it's what the TV says.

    it's not just about tv, genius. it doesn't directly badmouth tv anywhere in the song. it's about all the crap making the world bad. Delete your theory and paste it onto Plasma Zombies, then you'll be right. Wait...nope. Well, maybe if you replace "tv" with "violent video games" then you'll be right

    i think that this song is about how the world is getting fucked up to the point that satan is taking command because everyone is sinning and being evil...

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.

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,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
