And back to the ebb came, in fact and full of rain
And two the flow went, I think the vessel bent
Now time is precious, rocky waves we're nauseous
I think everything is wet, from us the ocean fed
What made us try to have done what we do, let's dream of dry
To not tremble in the night¡­full sky, fuel shy

Don't you recognize, I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurvy bad

Now it's been days, and the sun won't show her face
She will blame mistakes on me, now the cold becomes obscene
Will you just bend, and think of saving my life again
This ship has made me cry, I think the next time we should fly¡­full sky, fuel shy

Don't you recognize, I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurvy bad

We're bringing up all the sharks cause all the whales have gone mas surr, you fail to recognize all the things that we do, check yourself, the boat just about to sink
You're gonna choke on the salt if you try to drink¡­

We're bringing up all the sharks cause the whales have gone mas surr, you fail to recognize all the things we do, check yourself the boat just about to sink, we don't need

You bitch, you think you are the missed link
All the prism in the world couldn't make hue
All the rescue that I've seen don't bring you
Stand up, sit back or walk the plank, kiss the deck and recall

All the prism in the world couldn't make hue

Don't you recognize, I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurvy bad

    Alien Ant Farm is just one of those crappy bands that exist purely to make music for video games. This one, on NHL 2004, and "Wish" on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, prove that. Junk.

    Ripping on AAf when you are a Green Day fan? Lame. Dryden is the greatest singer/lyricist of OUR generation. Billy Joe Armstrong sounds british, but isn't. Explain that. Also, you can't go very deep into a Green Day song. S.S. Recognize is awesome. One of the greatest songs to hear live. AAF is light-years beyond Green Day, artistically speaking. Green Day is one of those crappy bands that exist to make music for brain-dead retards who have no taste in music. You prove that.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
