Fall down
Can't pick myself up off the ground
Head down
I see catastrophe
And it's right in front of me

Mother, father, please don't me choose between you
I love both of you
Mother, please, all I want to be is just little me
Father, please, all I want to be is you're son
No fair

Trespass the tiny mind of a child
Despair
In my world surrounds me
It's immerse me
Rips right through me
Remember

The day they told me, I'm so scared
Suffer
My wounds not healing
Mother, please, all I want to be is just little me
Father, please, all I want to be is your son

Sometimes
In dark my mind will roam
To a time
I spent alone
As a child, as a small boy
As a child, as a small boy

I remember times as a child I knew
As for my love, I still see it
I remember times as a child I knew
Too many moralisists in my life
I knew times as a child I know
I looked into my father's eyes
I remember times as a child when I looked
And I screamed

I still scream, and I say
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me
Look at what you did to me
See what you did to me

I died that day
All I want to say

Mother, please, all I want to be is a little deep inside of you
Father, please, all I want to be is a little back inside of you

What now?
Fuck you!
What now?
Fuck you!
What now?
Fuck you!
What now?
Fuck you!
What now?
Fuck!

    This is about divorce. It's from the perspective of a child who is confussed. He also wishes he was never born when he says

    Mother please, all i want to be is a little deep inside of you Father please, all i want to be is a little me back inside of you .

    This is a pretty cool song.

    yes, these are one of my favorite mudvayne songs, and it's easy to tell it is about a divorce in a child's perspective.

    Mother father please dont make me choose between you-that line pretty much says it's obviously about divorce.

    actually, this is one of my favorate songs. i love the lyrics and the way there sung. my favorite part is mther please, all i want to be is a little deep inside of you Father please, all i want to be is a little me back inside of you. i bet a lot of kids could relate to that part. since a lot of younger children think its thir fault their parents split. a lot prolly wish they could die.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
