Twenty one, feeling down
I tell you nothing with a thousand words
and I weaker get with every step
I waste my time on compact disc's and staly fish
I can't remember the last time I did something
that made me feel all right for longer than a few hours
if I only had the strength to make some muffins
then I swear that I would share them with you now

Am I odd or am I not?
that's the question I spend time analyzing
I'm so soft but still I'm not
living up to what people want me to be
cause I'm busy with me, myself and I
can't be understood by someone I don't know to well
so I'm shutting out the whole world just to play Nintendo
I've got these new games but I'm afraid you can't join me

These last few years I've been struggling
and I'm tired of keeping a low profile
so now it's time to show that I'm alive

I'm gonna change my life
change my plans
change my Vans
even start to dance now
change my thoughts
change my sox
change my moves
even change my pro fighter Q for you

No its not for you
And change mine just for me
And change mine just for me
Bullion

    Oh god! I will be 22 in five days!! I love this MC song. I heard this song since I was seventeen and I didn´t have a clue of what the hell nikola was trying to say...but now that I am still 21...Gosh!

    I Think this song is about finding out who you are and what you want to be in your life.

    A lot of people hide himselves hanging around with a girlfriend or doing drugs...but just a minority lives theirs lives with their own strenght and pain. I think the way to survive of nikola was fighting for his dream of be a great singer and when he was depressed he started to play nintendo.

    ¨cause I'm busy with me, myself and I can't be understood by someone I don't know to well so I'm shutting out the whole world just to play Nintendo I've got these games but I'm afraid you can't join me¨

    I guess this song is about loneliness and hope. The hope to be someday a great man and then become in bullion and make that change for yourself no for a girl, for the society ...just for yourself.

    These last few years I've been struggling and I'm tired of keeping a low profile so now it's time to show that I'm alive

    I'm gonna change my life, plans, Vans, start to dance change my thoughts, sox, moves even change my pro fighter Q for you!!!

    This song reminds me of my life so very much, other than the age and the choice of video game and system

    Just want to put this out there:

    This song has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with drugs or break-ups. Its sort of a coming-of-age song, more of a shy kid coming out of his shell.

    "Am I odd or am I not? Thats the question I spend time analizing..." Wow!! This song is so good!! It really made me like Millencollin. This song is full of so many good lyrics. "I can't be understood by someone I don't know too well."

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.

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.

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.
