We went on a trip to the sea
Me and her and her and me
Never felt so all alone
We argued by an old payphone
Now lonely is my name…

I found an old motel for us
The bed frame was covered in rust
Never felt so rotten
I stuffed her mouth with cotton
Bright Apple is my name…

I got some tape, I found some twine
My head was foggy from the wine
The desk clerk never heard a cry
I made her mine, it felt so fine

The morning sun came creeping in
Her body looked so pale and thin
Never felt so full of fear
The sky was pretty and so clear
Bob Feargus is my name…

The birds were chirping by the sea
It was me and her and her and me
I watched her splash, my eyes felt dead
The water turned a little red
Frank Deadeye is my name…

I got a tape and listened in
The phone calls she had made to him
My eyes were leaking crazy tears
I heard them laughing over beers
I tied her down, it felt so fine
Then drove across the county line
For a burger and a glass of wine…

Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Techno Ted
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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.
