The Berlin Wall falls in the East
The West claims triumph, "We've really got 'em beat!"
Politicians from the West claim the police state's dead
But what about the police state in the West?

Police state in the USA
It's fascism with a friendly face
Police state in the USA

The government controls everything you do
With the police and the feds watching over you
You try to stand against them and you'll end up dead
As your front door is smashed in by the ATF

Police state in the USA
It's fascism with a friendly face
Police state in the USA

Your television screen shows the feds most wanted
But do you truly know why these men are being hunted?
It's a big brother state it's the same as the East
The cops protect the rich and the corporate elite

Police state in the USA
It's fascism with a friendly face
Police state in the USA

    ATF is anti-tobacco, alchohol, and GUNS. Tossing that out there.

    "Your television screen shows the feds most wanted But do you truly know why these men are being hunted?"

    I hope that's just a question to make us think, and not a bat-shit crazy conspiracy.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.
