Do you know yourself
Do you know the others
Can you pull the weight that rides on another's shoulders
Once you've lost yourself to the acceptance mask
Well could you find yourself
It's not a simple task
Comes from within
Take a different track
It's time to see what you are made of
Can you expose yourself
Can you peel off another layer
Will you make the time
The time to control
Because only you can save yourself
Only you can save your soul
And once you save yourself
Insecurities will die
Genuine qualities
And true character will shine
Now that you belong to you
What will the others think
Well, soon they'll follow you
You'll see they're all so weak
Come on
Can you, let go
Can you, be you

    As with most Snapcase songs it appears to be talking about being an individual despite of what other people think or do

    I think I might check out there live show....though I don't really want to see Finch again. I've only heard a couple songs by them, but I like the style, though I wish the singer would either just sing or scream, his voice is just like in the middle. It's like loud talking, like shouting.

    shouting is what the hardcore is all about (for example: Shutdown, Bane, Stretch Arm Strong)

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”

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."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
