Let us be the ones
to put the thorn in thy eye
...let us be the ones
Squalid the weak stumbles
through all of life's obscurities
Lost in sacriliege
Revere the name
Accept the modesty
Falter through speres of the pain
Exhausted hours... Exhausted hours
Nothing from thy world will remain thine
except the very priviliege to die
Squalid the weak stumbles...
Orgasmic Mass Hysteria!
You're creeping for a charlatan god

    exactly like the song title, heresy (which is a denial or dissension from an orthodox standard) is clearly presented as the dominant message. without even trying to hide it - - "let us be the ones to put a thorn in thy eye." if you have read the New Testament, you will know a thorn in your eye means that you are blind with sin, or anything you want to call it; not righteous. thats the first sign of heresy, OPEN heresy. so the next few lines it shows some cool literature describing the life of this heretic's life of laborousness and feeling of failing. the narrator is indeed right about nothing in this world remains yours except the privilege to die (it is unclear to me as a positive or negative message, but a truthful one) they end with accusing these frantic masses as being victims of a cult. this song could take either side really, as the heretic accusing a church, or a church accusing a heretic. as both these sides see eachother as the heretic to truth. i'm leaning towards the heretic accusing a church since they say "let us be the ones to put a thorn in thy eye", as a church would probably say "let us be the ones to remove the thorn from thy eye". either way, both sides would stand in a controversial position since we are not to judge unless we want ourselves judged for our judgements made. and who wants that?

    The part in German is: “Es gibt keinen Gott, Es gibt kein Leben. Sie werden alle sterben, Ohne die Erlösung.” Translated its the following: “There is no God, There is no Life They’ll all die, Without Salvation.”

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
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
