Rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling off the bodies,
Bodies, bodies
Can we take production to another peak tonight
They said they would be waiting, waiting, waiting
Waiting for the dawn bell, dawn bell, dawn bell
Can we take another body off production line

But in another time we could be the winners or second best
In another time we could see the benefits to their tests

This is not who we were,
This is not who we're meant to be
This is not who we were,
This is not who we're meant to be
Find a fee

They said you couldn't sign us, sign us, sign us
Sign us off the payroll, payroll, payroll
Standing in the doorway waiting for the bells to strike
We're turning off the power power power
Turning off the bloodlines bloodlines bloodlines
Hiding from the shadows waiting for the dogs to bite

Owned by
Higher powers, everyone, turned around, to the guns
Don't dream my dreams for me.

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.

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.
