Hey ese, at least some groups of little mocosos
We were born to represent the Raza
Hey man I didn't get asked to, I was jumped into this motherfucker

To all the lifers doing time, keep your head up loco

The thirteenth razon to be a Sureno is
Hold your ground and put it down en las calles where you live
Let's give thought to the twelfth, in your mind picture wealth
Getting your slang on strong for your family and your health
We break dough how we roll up in this hustle game
Just for razones, I won't explain
Razon numero once, es algo que conoses
why union entre pandillas living Sureno Vida
Some locos are with it, others choose to go broke
Respecto for fuckers that call the gun smoke
Hell yea, you know the deal ese always keep it real
Razon numero diez, pack your fucking steal
'cause they will catch you slipping, they will pop their clip in
And these Thirteen Razones are why these locos tripping
Some stake you in their chest and go out the back door
Wicked from Brownside here to make you fiend more

Some don't want to hear it, but fuck it yo te enseno
Trece razones to be a Sureno
This is the way it should be done ese, remember where you're from
Trece razones to be a Sureno
One think we know is we have calle control
Trece razones to be a Sureno
Our lives and quettes cursed, the Brownside brought it first
Trece razones to be a Sureno

I break it down to number nine, this is one you keep on mind
Put in work to pay your dues, remember always roll with trues
Numero ocho should be something that we prove
Like moving the celdas as Surenos proudly move
Breaking fools left and right, when I explain it comes tight
Living life as bandieros, catch you slipping do you right
Some get to see the inside, others don't participate
Razon numbero siete is to get out all the hate
That we create while growing up, end up not giving a fuck
Temper's a hair-trigger, that's why vatos learn to buck
And duck to leave the scene, number six is for the fiend
Addicted like a clucker to this gangster dream
You see, what we do is jump in to the neck
And I'm bringing it real, so what you see is what you get
Number five never hide, you take it with you when you ride
In Spanish it's orgullo in English they call it pride


I'ma drop this last verse, don't forget that I'm the first
To bring the curse of pistolas and that Super Sport hurst
There's a couple more razones, but before I get to that
Know that all of us Surenos never hesitate to snap, just like that
Now you know, here comes number four
It's survive in these streets 'cause they stalk you hardcore
So watch them close, eventually they'll creep
And if I'm not mistaken, we're on reason number three
Now you know all the rules but this one makes you choose
It's a seed that gets planted and grows while you pay dues
Now who's down with their pride? Number two can't be denied
So I'ma let you putos know, it's still the Brownside
Porque we don't hide nada like the rest of them chavalas
What we can't handle with words, loco we handle with balas
The primero razon is to have corazon
And if your hoods respect it, ahi te haces cabron


Trece razones
To all you gangsters from the 213

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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”
