It's not my mind
It's not my mind
It's not my mind
It's not my mind
It's not my mind
It's not my mind
Not my mind
Yo J
Can I get a little bit?

Your veins flow with poison, please acknowledge my present
This precious gift I behold, discarded like trash
To dominate it's in your nature, you selfish brat
I can't believe you had me strung out over you like that

One minute you're sweet the next minute you're sour
I taste the envious predictions
Change with each hour, I've seen this before
You even decided to step into my little world

Strange things occurring, happening over and
Over and over again habitual cruelty
You bark your orders with such a degrading dialect
I can't believe you had me strung out over you like that

One minute you're sweet the next minute you're sour
I taste the envious predictions
Change with each hour, I've seen this before
You even decided to step into my little world

Gonna funk it up
One minute you think you're all this
The next minute you think you're all that
But you're playing with a nova
Momma didn't show ya
How to take getting canned by the man when it's over?
I've been hunting you down
Waiting for the payback, you frown
Begging me for your mercy
I ain't down with the sympathy, you see?
And I'll always remember your tender love wiped me under the rug
Just so you could step on my spine
I'm gonna get mine

I'm gonna get mine

All this pain inflicted reminds me (I'm gonna get mine)
All this time which was wasted behind me (I'm gonna get mine)
Behind these wall of such hate, you'll find me (I'm gonna get mine)
I'd like to re-arrange your face, I'm gonna get mine

(Please don't wake me)
I'm gonna get mine
(Please don't wake me)
You're so sweet
You're so sweet
You're so sweet
I'm gonna get mine
I'm gonna get mine
I'm gonna get mine
So stop, was wasted behind me
(I'm gonna get mine)
Behind these walls of such hate, you'll find me
(I'm gonna get mine)
I'm gonna get mine
I'm gonna get mine (you're so sweet, you're so sweet, you're so sweet)

You're always, you're always right
And I'm always wrong
That's why you love me so much
You're so sweet
I love you
You're so sweet
I love you

    This is my fave Limp Bizkit song. I'm just all into the whole "fed up with your shit, gonna get you back" theme. People shouldnt take advantage of other people...

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.

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.

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.

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.
