Oh, I got a flow that just can't be stymied
Walking into the river, you better step lively
Too many want their name up in bright lights
But I like to write and I cite the highlights so my lights are blinding
Too many wack, too many weak
Too many producers on a beat just tryin' to wet the beak, so to speak
Too many fallin' short of inadequate
Too many tryin' to climb, see how crowded the ladder is
Ain't that a bitch when they won't spit rhyme?
Like I'm just here so I don't get fined
And I'm just weird, but I'm hopin'
The smoke that I'm blowin' will go and float this time
Too many on the radio (Too many)
Too many tryin' to slide to the top with the faces inked up
Too many runnin' with their laces tied
But the fate's decided, the race is rigged up

Too many people on the earth
Too many people got their head in the dirt
Get the bread from our work
'Til I'm dead in the surface
Verse leave 'em bled in a hearse
Amen, then it's curtains (Amen)
Been blessed with a curse
Say ten words lookin' like it's hell in my search for a purpose (In my search)
Been stressed so the verbs be hexed with the death of these vermins, lurkin'
Too many people in my way (In my way)
And that's including myself
ToadStool got the tools on his belt
Broke rules now the fools on his pelt (On his pelt)
Stuntin' like my usual self
Something like unusual wealth (Uh)
Fuckin' been abusin' the health
So we got two brews, chuggin' dudes got the booziest belch
Too many people snooze while they cruisin' and end up losin' themselves
(I tried to burp on command, I can't)

Too many like this, too many like that
Too many, it's claustrophobia
Too many in front, too many in back
Too many for the doors to open up
Too many like this, too many like that
Too many, it's claustrophobia
Too many in front, too many in back
Too many for the doors to open up
Too many like this, too many like that
Too many, it's claustrophobia
Too many in front, too many in back
Too many for the doors to open up
Too many like this, too many like that
Too many, it's claustrophobia
Too many in front, too many in back
Too many for the doors to open up

Too many motherfuckin' people got me feelin' like I can't breathe
Got me feelin' like I can't sleep
Too many motherfuckin' people got me feelin' like I can't be
Got me feelin' like I can't be
Too many motherfuckin' people got me feelin' like I can't breathe
Got me feelin' like I can't sleep
Too many motherfuckin' people got me feelin' like I can't be
Got me feelin' like I can't be me

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
