You fuckin' with it, love?
Ay, keep cuttin' it
Uh, keep that when I said, "That's the technique"
Yea nigga, ah-ha
Uh-huh (This nigga, this nigga here)
(This nigga, ay, ah, this nigga here)
(This nigga, ay, ah, this nigga here)
(This nigga, ay, this nigga)

I'm a boss in the game
I deserve six rings
I go hard in the paint
They wanna know my number and my name
They swear to God I got a cheat code
I'm going for the three
This shit is easy like a free throw
I go beast mode
Ballin' on 'em
'93 Mike Jordan on 'em
Swish, nigga
It's all in the wrist, nigga

And we aim for the top everyday just to change our lives
Know the pain, know the gain
Know the things that they ain't gonna like
Not afraid to express what it takes so we made our own way
You not in the game, I call shots in the game like

Huh, what's the play?
Yeah, what's the play?
What's the play?
Huh, what's the play?
What's the play?
Yeah, what's the play?
What's the play?
Huh, what's the play?

I'm on my Wayne Gretzky
I got so much ice on
Smoking on that strong pack, strong pack
Hit it hard, Mike Tyson
Slide in home plate, safe
Paid in full just like Ace
But I ain't working at the cleaners
I get that pack and serve it like Serena
Ballin' on 'em
'93 Mike Jordan on 'em
Touchdown
We got the club going up
I'm 'bout to roll something up

And we aim for the top everyday just to change our lives
Know the pain, know the gain
Know the things that we ain't gonna like
Not afraid to express what it takes so we made our own way
You not in the game, I call shots in the game like

Huh, what's the play?
Yeah, what's the play?
What's the play?
Huh, what's the play?
What's the play?
Yeah, what's the play?
What's the play?
Huh, what's the play?

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.
