Did you get that rush, that feeling, adrenalin
Pumping through your veins?
A lifeless body in the gutter, city streets are stained
How do you rationalize? What do you see in your reflection?
A kid just having fun, a soldier's bloodied boot impression
One for all and all for one, especially when it's ten on one
You don't care what you're doing, you know it sure is fun

If it happened to your mother would you laugh so hard?
Well, that was someone's son or brother
That you kicked so hard

This time you went too far
What's the matter, don't you feel alright?
Do you feel remorse?
Or are the handcuffs on a little too tight?

Now that your friends are gone, you've got no
Defense, no protection
Five or six times a day you receive your hot beef injection
I hope every time you're corn holed terror fills your mind
The one emotion you have inspired one too many times

    It wasn't really about Mike's friend. It was a kid that Melvin and Steve met at a show they played with DOA and he seemed nice so they invited to an afterparty. At the party the kid got severely beaten by a group of skinheads and later died from his injuries.

    i think this song is based on the fact that people dont care about what they do to others and they just laugh about it until it happens to you...If it happened to your mother would you laugh so hard? Well, that was someone's son or brother That you kicked so hard

    This time you went too far What's the matter, don't you feel alright? Do you feel remorse? Or are the handcuffs on a little too tight? **someone went to far doing some shit and he finaly got caught and u finaly stop and realize what you done

    actually insurance, when mike says "do you feel remorse, or are those handcuffs on a little too tight" means that the person probably doesn't care what he did, just that he got caught.

    The title of this song is a reference to the Malachi brothers who appear in an episode of Happy Days. Can't remember much about it, but i remember that they challenged someone to a race (maybe the Fonz), and they tried to cheat...

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.

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.
