Open yourself let me inside
Open your arms
I have nowhere to go
So let me into you
I need to be where nothing can hurt me
Open your legs
To let me crawl
Inside of you
I need to be inside your womb
So take me home
Inside of you
Envelope me I'm home

Bringing me down
Bringing me down
I want to be your baby
Bringing me down
Bringing me down
Bringing me down
I want to be your baby
Bringing me down

Open your legs
And take me in
I need to be inside within
Let me become a part of you
Let me inside of you
Swallow me whole
I want to know the things you hide
I want to feel the things you feel
I want to breath the air you breath
I want to live inside of you

Take me
Bringing me down
Bringing me down
I want to be your baby
Bringing me down
Bringing me down
Bringing me down
I want to be your baby
Bringing me down
Let me live inside
Let me live inside
Let me live inside
Let me live inside

    Song Meaning

    The song is about unbirthing and vorephelia, two rather uncommon but related sexual fetishes. The former involves being unborn into a woman's womb, while the latter involves being consumed for nourishment. It should be noted that the second verse should be "Open your lips" not "Open your legs". The speaker is being asking to be unborn in the first verse, and asking to be eaten in the second.

    If you think this explanation is incredulous, first consider how many other songs Fat Mike has authored about sexual fetishes. They named an album "S&M Airlines", after all.

    its not really about sex, its not really obvious cos you got it wrong. he feels safe inside her body. he wants to be her baby, hence the title... duh

    Three possible meanings:

    1. Sex.
    2. As mentioned before, wanting to be the womans baby.
    3. (A friend suggested this one), the view point of a sperm who wants to fertilise the egg. highly unlikely but its fun to read over the lyrics with that in mind!

    I think the song is kinda like a joke. I mean you see the title and think it's going to be some sort of shit love song but when you hear the lyrics you see they're actually being serious. Good Laugh

    Well, probably not serious, but literal.

    I love the 6/4 in the verse and the section with 7/4 against 4/4.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

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.
