Back to the front lines, back to the night
Medieval marauders, under the lights
Back for the plunder, the thrill of the flames
The roar of the thunder, back in the game
Storming the castles, swords in the air
Killing the monsters in their own lair
Lighting the torches, setting the stage
You get what you ask for, right in the face

Six string sabers, screams in the night
War clubs pounding, living just for the fight

So we drive, through the night
With the howling wind at our backs
Riding on Teutonic terror
We will, give em' the axe
We will, give em' the axe

String up the razors, sharpen the blades
Tighten the skins up, no one escapes
Crank up the grindstone, load up the sleds
Saddle the horses, off with their heads!

Six string sabers, screams in the night
War clubs pounding, living just for the fight

So we drive, through the night
With the howling wind at our backs
Riding on Teutonic terror
We will, give em' the axe
We will, give em' the axe
For the roar, of the crowd
For the raging frontal attack
Delivering the Teutonic terror
We will, give em' the axe
We will, give em' the axe

So we drive, through the night
With the howling wind at our backs
Riding on Teutonic terror
We will, give em' the axe
For the roar, of the crowd
For the raging frontal attack
Delivering the Teutonic terror
We will, give em' the axe
We will, give em' the axe

    This song is autobiographical. Accept is the Teutonic Terror.

    "War clubs pounding" should be "War drums pounding"

    I think Accept is a great band and their songs are connected through very particular facts, Stalingrad was a the greatest batlle in history and people stoped the "Teutonic Terror". The 2 greatest battles in Russia were Stalingrad and Kursk. I think the band wanted us to think about Kursk battle like the real end to the "Teutonic Terror". Just take a look at Wolf standing on a tank. Kursk was the battle of the tanks. Pandemic is the real fear of all of us about quimical wars. These guys are great. They are not just another heavy metal band. Believe me.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
