Come on, Check it out, ya'll
(Come on, come on!)

Check it out, the tribal dance
Feel the force, this is your chance
To get control and do the tribal dance

People started dancing a long time ago
The bass was fast, but then again it was slow
Soul, house, rhythm and blues
It doesn't matter what music you choose
Strike up a dance, is your chance
To come with me and do the tribal dance
You've got to move it with a temperature
Into the rhythm that the fire burns
So get into it-- get into the trance
This is the rhythm of the tribal dance, the tribal dance

It started with a tribe who discovered the vibe
Who moved to the rhythm just the way they liked
You hear the treble, you hear the bass
The are-a-why, yeah is on the case
Feel the fire, feel the flame
Do your thing now, don't be ashamed
I have to go now, no offense
I've hooked you up into the tribal dance

Get into it
Get into it
Get into the trance
You've got to do the tribal dance

Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!
Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!
Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!

Tribal dance! Tribal dance, tribal dance!
Yeah! Oh! Tribal dance! Tribal dance!
You've got to move it with a temperature,
Into the rhythm that the fire burns!

So get into it, get into the trance
This is the rhythm of the tribal dance, the tribal dance

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.

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.
