Why'd you take that away from me
Just one taste and I needed a little more of your sweet honey
I want you to feel my pain
I want you, don't walk away
I need you, the time is right
I need to hold you tight

Rejection, I can't believe you're gone
Rejection, why'd you have to walk away
Rejection, I can't believe you're gone
Rejection, now it's time to turn the page
Rejection, What the fuck did I do
Rejection, why'd you have to walk away
Rejection, you broke me in two
Rejection, Rejection

What the fuck did I do
What did I do to deserve the blame
Remember this, and don't forget my name
Handle this shit before I rope ya
I'm gonna slit your throat before I smoke ya
Bet it all - but you don't own me
You tried to punk me - but you don't know me
You tried to blow me off without no question
You better pray for divine intervention

You really didn't think I'd let you walk away from me
Just one more time, I need to feel your lips around this piece
If you could come my way, what could I do to make you stay
Then you could penetrate my life, then you'd rip me up inside

Rejection, I can't believe you're gone
Rejection, Why'd you have to walk away
Rejection, I can't believe you're gone
Rejection, Now it's time to turn the page
Rejection, What the fuck did I do
Rejection, Why'd you have to walk away
Rejection, you broke me in two
Rejection, Rejection

Pushing and crushing me, down on my knees
Taking and breaking, and making me scream
I can't contain this, I'll make you all bleed
You've opened me up, now you'll feel my disease
In my suffering (stop)
Suffering (dying too)

Even in my suffering, I'll make you believe
You can't believe I'll make you disappear
Occurred to me, and then it became clear
Rejected me, oh no, I don't think so
I'll take you out quick, don't even blink ..so
You cut me up and hung me out to dry
Got your itch, like a bitch, you made me cry...but
Retribution, confusion, illusion
hairline fracture, multiple contusion
Don't walk away
Just run away

    40 below summer is one of the most awesome bands...This is one of my favorite songs, and it rawks of course. Means a lot to me, cause I was rejected by someone that i really cared about, but he's asking all these questions and not getting a reply so he's getting pissed off and is thinking that if he can't find the answers then he'll just have to take it out on someone.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

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."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
