And my mind was confusion
Like thoughts of clouds in the sky
Wanted to touch the water
So Ii could feel that high

That day was so full of bliss
I feared the coming of night
And I had to feel my tears
As they burned my eyes so alive

Take my mind out
So I can be clear
The pure blue skies
It seemed to kill the tears
It seemed to kill these tears

And her mind is confusion
The dots that eat the blue sky
They never understand me
And never have even tried

I just wanted to be lost
So I could see what's inside
Nothing to say to you people
You remain so fucking blind

Take my mind now
So I can be clear
The pure blue skies
It seemed to kill the tears

Take my mind now
And It's confusion
Black and blue skies

One day I will be
One day I will be
One day I will be
Clear!

One day I will be clear!

So when mind's clear from confusion
Like a blue cloudless sky

There'll be nothing to say to you people
You're forever fucking blind

Take my mind now
So I can be clear
Dark and blue skies
It seemed to kill the tears

Take my mind now
And it's confusion
Black and blue skies

    I'm not really sure, but I think it's about how in a relationship and friendship with someone, they believe he always thinks wrong and that he never thinks right. He says "Take my mind now, So I can be clear" where if you take his opinion away, there is no right, there is no wrong: There is nothing, so it is clear. That's how I interpret it, and it's a cool song.

    i think this song is about the challenges of thinking clearly. at the end he says "So when mind's clear from confusion Like a blue cloudless sky There'll be nothing to say to you people You're forever fucking blind" it is pretty self explanatory, meaning that when he's finally clear, people still won't comprehend him.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
