I remember when all the games began
Remember every little lie
And every last goodbye
Promises you broke, words you choked on
And I never walked away it's still a mystery to me

Well I'm so empty
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well you're so unclean
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
Deceiving
The bleeding
It's over

Paint the mirrors black (to forget you)
I still picture your face and the way you used to taste
Roses in a glass dead and wilted
To you this all was nothing
Everything to you is nothing

Well you're so filthy
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well I'm so ugly
You're better off without me and I'm better off without

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
Disaster
It's over

As wicked as you are, you're beautiful to me
You're the darkest burning star, your my perfect disease

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
It's over
Disaster

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
It's over
Disaster
It's over now

    Guaade, now I realize you are probably a Forty year-old balding, one toothed, chronic masturbator that lives in your mothers basement, and thinks that NSYNC is still the shit and all. But please, there is no reason to throw a hissy fit when a band comes out with a song that may or may not lyrically have the same premise as others, after all. They are a metal band, so no they wont write lots of songs about Unicorns and candy mountain, but they will about relationships that get fucked up and crush them. that is the reason for rock, to vent the frustration and aggression of pain and or anguish over an idea, situation, or belief. The song is completely original in style, just for the fact of the complete change of tempo. And the band is amazing because they have the ability and balls, to show that metal is also an art form just like any other type of music. Now, if your opinion differs in any way from mine, which I am sure it does. Make a cd, send me the lyrics, I will then find a copy of it, and listen. And if you do anywhere near as well, I will apologize. If not... SUCK MY BALLS

    this is not what is means to me but this is the real meaning of this song, and story line of this song.

    he had a girl friend that had been abused and neglected. then him and her got together cause he loved her and she loved him. then once while he was on tour she felt like no one cared for her. she was all alone no one there she could take to about her problems. she was tired of him going on tour and more... then one day there was no one there by her side. to stop her she over dosed on any pills she could find.

    that is the real meaning of this song just listen to the words once not the music. picture this story in your head while you listen you will see.

    gotta say that this song is fucking amazing and intense as hell live. obviously this is about being in love and having that bitch hurt you (yes yes personal experience) but that no matter what and through everything that goes on there will always be a place where the two will be together or have a connection. "You're my perfect disease" is the best line, very plainly saying that no matter the bullshit that we've been through there is something about you and me that works and i can't get away.

    fucking great song, obviously about losing someone you love very dearly due to lies and the backlash(pain) of it all, coinciding with the reflection the songwriter has on said relationship.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
