When I was young I craved a hamburger
My mom said, "Son let's head to the car!"
We were low on gas so I ditched her ass
I needed my nuggets in 5 seconds flat
Past the desert and past the ocean
I'd travel for miles just to get there
Finally there with a smile everywhere

Lets goto mcdonalds my friend it's not far
we need a bright smile and we get a toy car
I need Mcdonalds now
Chicken mcnuggets and supersized fries
if i can't get there you know that I cry

Mcdonalds has ronald and grimis too
The big purple dude with size 60 shoes
And who's the wise one who stole all our food
I think that they call him the hambugler dude
And how bout that chicken I can't remember her name
She wore a pilot hat do ya know what I mean
And who's the father of those chicken mcnuggets

Lets goto mcdonalds my friend it's not far
we need a bright smile and we get a toy car
I need Mcdonalds now
Chicken mcnuggets and supersized fries
if i can't get there you know that I cry

Why get a burger from burger king?
The employes there they don't even sing
and how bout that wendy's man named dave thomas
i wouldn't trust him with my food
And how bout that taco? that taco bell dog
we'll cut off it's head and tie it to the hood of my car
there is just one place left for me

Lets goto mcdonalds my friend it's not far
It might clog our arteries but for now it's just fine
Micky D's say you'll be mine
Sometimes i wish mcdonalds grew on trees
the best place on earth where the smiles are for free

We love to see you smile.

    I think to truly understand why its wrote such a meaningful song, is to deal with the universal meaning of hunger. we all have hunger: to love, to be free, to hate, to everything, even just plain old quenching that stomach rumbling. ITS is truly a universal band and you should go see their website at angelfire.com/pokemon2/introtospanish it's really great, just like them, STOP THE HUNGER AND GOTO MCDONALDS!

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.
