We rule the night, we rule by day
For we believe in time-honoured ways
We fight for truth, that peace may reign
We hold the scales of justice, keepers of the faith

We rule the night ten thousand voices
We rule the night like tameless horses

We rule the night, with fire and flame
Those who resist us lie in our wake
So sound asleep our children dream
Safe in the arms of something far beyond belief

Chrorus:
This flag is battletorn, we rule the night
We conquered by the sword, we rule the night
From the dark to the light we roar like a thunderstorm
We rule the night
Our sacred race was born, we rule the night
Immortal dogs of war, we rule the night
And we stand by the oath we swore
Till the last ones falls, we rule the night

We rule the night, protect our homes
Pure were the righteous against our foes
Our blades are stained, their blood remains
As a remembance of the lives we had to take

To rule the night this rock of ages
We rule the night as battle rages
We rule the night

Repeat Chorus Till fade

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.

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,

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/
