Enter the arena and hit the lights
Step up now you're in for a ride
This is war, ain't no fun and games
We get it up, you go down in flames
Party time, going down
You better not mess us around
The stakes are rich, take a hit or stay
The price is high, someone's gonna pay

Heads I win, tails you lose
Out of my way I'm coming through
Roll the dice don't think twice
And we crush, crush'em

Looking for trouble, now you've found it
You're a drum and we're gonna pound it
Last one standing wins the fight
Hear us scream and shout all night
Down on the floor and eat the grit
This is gonna hurt a little bit
Heads I win, tails you lose
Out of my way I'm coming through
Roll the dice don't think twice
And we crush, Crush'em
Now we lay you down to rest
You'll never be more than second best
Step inside you're in for a ride
And we crush, crush'em

Crush, crush, crush
Don't need reason, don't want names
Just a John Doe to put to shame
Step aside let me explain
The name of the game is pain
Now we've found you
We're gonna pound you
We're gonna beat you
Gonna defeat you
We're gonna bust you
We're gonna crush you
We're gonna crush'em

Heads I win, tails you lose
Out of my way I'm coming through
Roll the dice don't think twice
And we crush, crush'em
Now we lay you down to rest
You'll never be more than second best
Step inside you're in for a ride
And we crush, crush'em

Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
Crush, crush, crush, crush'em

Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
Crush, crush, crush, crush'em

    Its basically about pro wrestling Heads I win, tails you lose explains the system. Also since it was Bill Goldberg's song at one point it can also clarify that.

    The story I heard about this song is that Dave Mustaine is a big Phoenix Coyotes fan (poor guy). He didn't like the music they played at the games at all, so he wrote his own introduction song.

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

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.
