Fall Kneel And beg Just try harder and you will find
The way to everlasting site Don't take this lite away
It never did you any harm Just when I thought I'd find my way
Pagentry are all the same Defiled and devine
Self respect should never have to bleed from my knees
Wait for something to happen
Wait to understand I slip I grasp I always miss in cycles
Fallen angels
Never fully gain control.
It gets difficult to remain positive in the face of, it seems,
Overwhelmingly negative odds about never affecting anything positively.
Doubt sets in, then depression is coupled with anger,
When even Maximum Rock N Roll has an interview with a band
That spends several paragraphs talking about how lame
Boy Sets Fire is and how they are never going to change anything.
But then we got a letter from someone who we have affected
Or inspired to make changes within themselves in the hope that they will change the world.
Change is natural and must happen.
How that change comes and whether that change is for good or evil, is up to us

    this is about abuse, or at least being used.

    even if you know it's not your fault, the hurt doesn't go away.

    Was listening to a live recording at a concert where he explains that this song is about a point in his where he sorta gave up on trying anymore. He had listened too much on what other people said. And how there comes a point where you get jaded about how things happens, and we just let it happen and keep on being jaded. But the song shows how that is not where it has to end. And how this time in our lives there aren't alot of heros but you should find one in yourself and set things right.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Amazing
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.
