Baby, es gibt so viele Menschen, längst nicht alle werden satt.
Da ist es schön, daß dies Problem eine simple Lösung hat.
Baby, geh mal auf den Bauernhof, schau den Tieren ins Gesicht.
Müssen sie wirklich für uns sterben? Ich sag, Baby, nein, sie müssen nicht.

Gib Schweinen eine Chance, laß die armen Rinder in Ruh'.
Hol die Hühner aus dem Käfig, die schmecken nicht besser als Du.
Gib Schweinen eine Chance, hör auf mich und spar Dir das Geld.
Iß lieber einen Menschen, gegen den Hunger, für eine bessere Welt.

Das dicke, dicke Kind der Nachbarn schreit stundenlang vor Deiner Tür (draußen vor Deiner schönen Tür).
Gib ihm ein Überraschungsei und Du kriegst frisches Fleisch dafür (lecker Kinderbäuche).
Wenn Dein Chef Dir auf die Nerven geht, lad' ihn mal zum Essen ein (Schluß mit ewigen Arschkriecherei).
Er selbst ist dann das Hauptgericht, das wird 'ne schöne Überraschung sein.

Gib Schweinen eine Chance, laß die armen Rinder in Ruh'.
Laß Lämmer länger leben, brich endlich das letzte Tabu.
Gib Schweinen eine Chance, beiß lieber in 'nen Menschen hinein,
aus artgerechter Haltung. Sag mir, was könnte leckerer sein?

Baby, wenn Dir der Magen knurrt, ruf 110 statt call a Pizza.
Die schicken gleich drei Mann, da kaust Du lange dran,
und ohne Bart schmecken die spitze.

Gib Schweinen eine Chance! (4x)

Gib Schweinen eine Chance, laß die armen Rinder in Ruh'.
Laß Lämmer länger leben, die schmecken nicht besser als Du.

Wenn Dein Lebensabschnittspartner im Bett doch eher langweilig ist,
dann sorgt ein bißchen Chili dafür, daß Du ihn nie mehr vergißt.

Und jetzt seh' ich Dich erbleichen, weil äh...
in meinem Kühlschrank siehst Du Leichenteile.
Doch ich laß' Dich noch ein Weilchen heile,
bevor ich Dich mit meinem Beil zerteile.

Geht Liebe durch den Magen, dann liebst Du Deine Mitmenschen sehr.
Gib Schweinen eine Chance, iß lieber einen Kindergarten leer.

    Hehe, I like how "äh..." is actually used to force the rhyme with "Leichenteile".

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."
