Give it to me
I must have it
Precious treasure
I deserve it

bridge:
Where can I run
How can I hide
The Silmarils
Gems of treelight
Their life belongs to me
Oh it's sweet how the
Darkness is floating around

chorus:
We are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
And we are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
Lord I'm mean

Blackheart show me
What you hold in your hand
I still hunger for more
Release me
From my pain
Give it to me
How I need it
How I need it
How I need it

Where can I run
How can I hide
The Silmarils
Gems of treelight
Their life belongs to me
Oh it's sweet how the
Darkness is floating around

We are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
And we are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
Lord I'm mean

I did my part
Now it's your turn
And remember
What you've promised

Where can I run
How can I hide
The Silmarils
Gems of treelight
Their life belongs to me
Oh it's sweet how the
Darkness is floating around

We are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
And we are following
The will of the one
Through the dark age
And into the storm
Lord I'm mean

    This is about the panic of Melkor, trying to avoid giving the Silmarils to Ungoliant, "mistress of her own lust". With one hand he fed her jewels stolen from Formenos, but breaking his promise, he withheld the Silmarils from her. They burned his hand with pain unbearable, for the Silmarils will not suffer the hands of evil.

    This song is about The Silmarillion when Ungoliant poisens The Two Trees Of Valinor And When Morgoth Slays Finwe and Steels the Silmarills but breaks his promise to give them to Ungoliant as payment for the deed.

    Me ah21, it's from the J.R.R Tolkiens book Silmarillion. Very great song indeed, and it truly is about Melkor trying to hide the Silmarils from Ungolianth.

    My Opinion

    This song is about the fighting between Ungoliant and Morgoth after they got out from the striding ice (The SIlmarillion, a Tolkien's book). Morgoth had promise Ungoliant everything she wanted to eat, in exchange for her help, but in the end refuse to give her the Silmarils. The parts are from the points of view of Ungoliant, then Morgoth, than maybe from the Balrogs that come to save him from the big spider, since she was owning him, not sure about that. Thank Ungoliant, Morgoth, Balrogs (?), Ungoliant.

    On their way to the middle-earth they destroyed Laurelin and Telperion, the two sacred trees (this is described in Nightfall), killed Finwe, and after that we have the curse of Feanor, in the omonimous song.

    Ungoliant did not die, by the way, just escaped further south.

    This song got me into Blind Guardian. The moment I heard it I was blown away by the vocals and the awesome guitar. Although I was dissapointed that BG doesn't have these vocals in any other of their songs (I'm talking about the kinda evil goblinish vocals they have in the beginning), I still love them alot and can almost recall that feeling I got when I first heard this song...

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
