My perspective on life is pain
Sponge textured soul so porous I can't drain
I just absorb violations of the pledge
You swore to me your perjury

Detours the life of my child
Chicanery from you for me violates natural instincts in you
Dissolve does the sibling
Artificial sympathy

You braid the noose you hang me in guilt your guilt
You blame me septen up the empathy
Broken lover in your head
Mental material mother she left and dead

Glacial feeling inherited
Pathetic mode of principle
Now I see the industry where you belong is killing
My deception in life was you

You bring all the pain that I'm used to
Double vision is my view
Conditions that tear right through my mind pain...
In my head I harness

It keeps my faith frigid love..
In my body doesn't breathe hate..
Don't know how much I fuckin' hate you
Look what you've done to me

You won't leave me alone
Come back
No no no

    I think anything on L.D. 50 is better than anything on Kill I Oughtta. Mudvayne says themselves that you should judge them as a band by L.D. 50 and not the previous recordings, because those are far in the past and they have evolved alot as a group since then. Still, this is a very fine tune.

    Wow, looks like no one really has much of an opinion about this song. Well, um, my best guess is that it's about everyone throwing their shit onto someone and that they "can't drain, I just absorb". They take in all the garbage from other people and see life as a pile of smelly shit?

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.
