We'll walk around pretending
We're all grown up -- hey rich girl
Well can you tell me why you're so stuck up?
When you act like you're so down
Does paranoia come around
And seize your mind?
Now roll your eyes

there's an investigation to be done
Like who's been wearing what with who?
So what's been going on?
You've got to know
You've got to know

I'll tell you everything I know
Any little thing I know
I'll tell you everything I know
Any little things I know
You've got a lovely way with words
Must be the way you see the world
Its just the way you see the world

we walk around pretending
We're all grown up -- hey rich girl
Well can you tell me why you're so stuck up?
When you act like you're so down
Does paranoia come around?
Read your mind and take your eyes
Investigation to be done
Like who's been wearing what with who?
Hey what's been going on around here?
You gotta tell me you
You got the know -- I'd like to know

I'll tell you everything I know
Any little thing I know
I'll tell you everything I know
Any little things I know
You've got a lovely way with words
Must be the way you see the world
Its just the way you see the world

oh what a lovely way with words
Is that the way you see the world?
Its just the way you see the world

I went down to your house last weekend
You said, "come on man, you don't have to point out
Everything that's bad.
So there's a broken mirror on my bed
I'll clean it up,so what?
You don't have to be such an asshole all the time."
Aww don't be like that.

    I don't know if I really enjoy the version on this song on the NEW cd. He changed the lyrics around...

    "What a lovely way with words. Is that the way I see the world? It's just the way I see the world."

    I know there's some other things they took out too. Kind of sucks...

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.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

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/
