The white man call himself civilized
Cause he know how to take over
The white man come to pillage my village
Now he tell me I have to bend over

Oh yeah, kill all the white man

No I don't like the white man up in me
He rape all my people as he rape my country
Everything I love and cherish, he try to take away
We will be rid of him, soon come the day

Oh yeah, kill all the white man
Oh yeah, kill all the white man
Oh yeah, kill all the white man
Oh yeah, kill all the white man

El Hefe wrote this song with Fat Mike, and its actually, quote from them, about "all those fucked up nazi-punks who ruin their shows".

    lol wow are you telling me that NOBODY here can sense the heavy sarcasm in this song? you HONESTLY think it's an anti white song? This song is making fun of anti white racists, that's all. The song starts out with a reggae sound, the lyrics are grammatically incorrect "kill all the white man" and the vocalist sings with a jamaican accent...how is it NOT a satirical song? haha dumbasses

    Way to go with your blanket statement there. Your parents must be proud. Ten bucks says you've never opened a history book in your life. fatwrecks, you shouldn't be able to breed.

    it's not about "how white people are the people who fuck up society", it's about getting rid of social and racial stereotypes. just as in several other NOFX songs, they are saying here that they aren`t "white", and that people who buy into social and racial sterotypes, such as fatwrecks, are generally horrible people.

    Hey , i disagree with Fatwrecks, white man don't fuck up society. Society destroys itself for it's no more than a mayority of group that look or think alike, now , when people don't meet don't meet to their standards start doig stupid stuff, white men as black men. Now, i can't go with the song either cuz how can a song that says : OH YEAH KILL THE WHITE MAN and tells about how angry they are that the "white man" came and raped "their people", that's just plain stupid. I havent' heard the song, but thel lyrics speak for themselves.

    I think you guys are taking white too literally. Mike is trying to say that "white" men, shovanists are hurting the country, KKK members (white men), are hurting the country, government leaders (white men) are hurting the country, who's on top? The white man, he controls all, and shouldn't, the stereotypical white man controls what he shouldn't, and that's why they say he should die. Think of kill as abolish, all lines of racism should be abolished, no white, no black.

    Why is it that the girls who always comment have calmer saner things to say. Good job Susiehighschool. Then again I was a complete idiot when I was 15 too. Look white people aren't innately intolerent. They living in Europe a fertile hospitible place when they got their shit together advanced quickly. Much quicker then others and were soon all over the globe. Seeing new things all the time and having new experiences they weren't ready for and in some cases handled themselves badly. But if you look at other people say the Chinese they never went around the world to meet these other people. Its not that yellow people are nicer. They just stayed put and never had the experiences the Europeans had. This is a classic example of technology moving faster then people could cope. We had fast cutter ships but limited antropological knowledge.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
