Here's a list of side effects practice tested
Covering every malice angle for example
You will sleep forever you will never sleep again
Yawn to yawn your face is born to mask the shade of shit

You're in now it's time to fake resignment room
Assignment next door to the generator what the fuck
It is whatever powers lights to burn all night your
Teeth to grind to grind so fine you'll find out sooner

What it is to ring the alarm or you're sold to dying
Fell, destroyed and long out used step into it green
In laying water blue cop a feeling coprophagics
Say next in line well how about you freedom's fiction

Sorry fifteen time to sell the softer shoe ring the
Alarm or you're sold to dying (respects to tenor saw)

    tenor saw was a reggae artist in the 80s, his big hit was "ring the alarm". he was either run over or killed drug deal gone wrong, depending on who you ask. coprophagics are shit eaters. seems death-like but there's a bit of prison imagery too. either way it has a hopeless feel to it.

    My Opinion

    I don't know anything about Tenor Saw other then what the first guy said. To me when he says "Ring the alarm or you're sold to dying". I think he's talking about drug use. You can get help for your drug addiction, but if not "you're sold to dying". That's my take on it anyway.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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/

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.
