I hold your letter in my frozen hand
The last line was long as long as it burns my look carries on
With every word another feeling dies
I'm left here in the dark
No memories of you
I close my eyes

[Chorus]
It's killing me
We die when love is dead
It's killing me
We lost a dream we never had
The world in silence and should forever feel alone
Cause we are gone & we will never overcome
It's over now

Vultures are waiting for what's left of us
What can we take?
It all has no worth if we lose our trust
They're coming closer, want me & you
I can feel their claws
Let me go now
Try to break free

[Chorus]

Now, now
It's over now
Now, now,
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now

Vultures are waiting for what's left of us
Taking the last of you & the last of me.

[Chorus]

Now, now
It's over now
Now, now
It's over now
It's over now

    About a breakup or u could call it a heart break with anything that revolves being emotionally hurt about love.

    This doesn't seem like a typical breakup song to me. It sounds like something more complex. Like, maybe Bill wants to make the relationship work because there isn't life without love ("We die when love is dead").

    It's weird, 'cuz the German version translates to "we loved eachother to death..." not tbh I find that just a liiiiittle bit freaky.

its amazing how far music can come.. 24 years after it released and its one of the most heartfelt songs ive heard

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
