se van llevando la memoria
queda en la historia una mancha un borrón
mientras el resto sufre amnesia
un viejo recuerda una canción

de una lejana batalla donde pudo morir
en una guerra no ganada a veces me pregunta por ti

se cree aún en la trinchera
otra bandera de otro color
solemne en su viento ondea
sobre la cima y en su salón

a veces habla con fantasmas de cuyo nombre se olvidó
vencidos nunca regresaron de su exilio interior

ni un momento ni un recuerdo
para los que perdieron los que construyeron
la tumba el mausoleo
de la miseria del carnicero

cómo esperas ganar sin ellos
las batallas que anteriormente perdieron
si han de callar que callen aquellos
los que firmaron pactos de silencio

tratan de convencerle abuelo
las explosiones han terminado
pero cuando sale a la calle
madrid parece bombardeado

y lee escritos en los muros gritos contra los que luchó
y personajes de rostro oscuro que le inculcaron el terror

y un día sin darnos cuenta
el viejo con sus historias se consumió
y en la memoria de su nieto
sólo una huella un leve borrón

de aquella lejana batalla donde pudo morir
en una guerra no ganada donde luchó por ti

donde luchó por ti

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.

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,

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
