Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
Your a burner yeah a real motor car
Said you wanna get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah

We were shifting hard when we took off
Put tonight all four on the floor
When we hit top end you know it feels to slow
Said you wanna get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah
Oh!

I'm giving you my room service
And ya know it's more than enough
Oh one more time ya know I'm in love

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah!

Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
With all four on the floor I feel what's in store

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah!

    ooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrr, You're a retard evilDEAD? yeah i reckon so actually, they're both great bands in their own ways, the thing that pisses me off is that people compare them just cos Mustaine was in metallica, but they are completely different bands. Don't choose to support either Mustaine or Hetfield, just like the fucking music, it's all good, and a shit load better than fucking 50 shitting cent.

    Whoever says Mustaine can't solo for shit... He doesn't use slurs as often as other guitarists but he can fucking SHRED. Just listen to Into the Lungs of Hell. Great song, along with this one.

    ...shadowfilth... how can you say that a song's lyrics are "gay," when they are about wanting to bang a chick in the backseat of a car?

    Megadeth>Metallica. I got 2 words for you

    St. Anger

    Why did that album ever have to exist? After it was released I realize Mustaine doesn't need Metallica, Metallica needs Mustaine. I really lost a lot of respect for Metallica after St. Anger and Lars Ulrich's greed. Watch Some kind of Monster and you will see that Dave was the scapegoat for all the band members problems. They all had drug and alcohol problems, yet Mustaine was the only one blamed. I am not being biased I am just saying the truth. Though I still love Metallica from the 80s they just suck ass now. Megadeth is consistently awesome .

    Rust in Peace>Master or Puppets.

    If Mustaine and Hetfield or whoever Metallica's leader is saw you lot bickering about them all the time, I think they would fucking facepalm.

    Get over all the BS, they have.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
Album art
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.

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.
Album art
Page
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.
