I live it high cost of livin' tell me why give it all.
Inside you gotta head high one size fits all
Head ride, you decide

Sweet, sweet ride. Sweet sweet ride. 1969

I live it why ya gotta limit, crossed grin now I
Gotta bare it.
Head high 9 inside hell to ride you beside
Sweet, sweet ride. Sweet sweet ride. 1965

I live it, it's not a gimmick my side anti-red.
What I said in your head naked what you hide
Will the planes ever collide, we align, collide.
My sweet sign: 1969

I like it hot cold livin'
Have you seen the inside of my ceiling's gotta big wild grin inside miles wide you belie
Sweet, sweet ride. Sweet sweet ride. 1965

I've had it now I've gotta give it all blind mice resign you gotta hoodshine analyze.
Seats alive vinyl thighs
Sweet ride. Sweet, sweet ride. 1969.

I live it what I take.
Why I give it not away ?
Pen said why side when I'm dead I gotta live it
Speak free sexually
Why, why

Sweet, sweet ride

I feel it sky's not a limit gotta nice flight suit and tie headlights on inside souled a price you can't buy.
Sweet sweet sixty sexy I idolize your
Sixxy sexty oh my sixty sixxy nine.

    This is basically a sarcastic song about somone who's crushed socially by the conformist society of the time essentially being unable to deal with a life they don't want. Great song, by the way, my favorite by this band.

    Um, I think this song is about a car. A 1969 car. Don't read too much into it.

    It's about the 60's and what's going on in that era. "High cost of living," "Will the planes ever collide?" "Speak free sexually," "Sweet, sweet ride," "My side anti-red?" Pretty obvious. Although I do think it doubles as a sexual song.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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/

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.
