(I want you to bow your head)

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What to do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What to do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

What they told you is not to be
But what you want comes naturally

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you want: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Black them out, kill the lights
Hands are moving through the night

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What to do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What to do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Make some time here, fingers free,
Keep your hands on your chemistry

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What to do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Feel at night, seen at night

Watching it again, this potion here
Watch you doing it, explain it here
What they told you is not to be
But what you want comes naturally

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

Freak yourself: shake it, shake it
Close the door: shake it, shake it
What you do: shake it, shake it
Just hit the floor: shake it, shake it

    My Interpretation

    I'm fairly certain this song is about spanking your monkey.

    Song Meaning

    Seems to be about some strong kind of desire for someone or something. Could be purely sexual, but also more generally mandatory (like in 'I want you for the army').

    Richard H. Kirck, though, said in an interview that it's about masturbation.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
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.

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."

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.
