I got this clot that says
That I can't do a thing,
And it kills me that
What I love I can't do,
It kills me.
Is smashed up,
My life is smashed up,
And I know it's right,
And I feel it's time to kill.
I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic...
I have this feeling in my gut
To the point of nausea and I feel so,
So fucking empty.
Is smashed up, My life is smashed up,
And I know it's time,
And I feel it's right to kill.
I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic...
Trust me.
Is smashed up,
My life is smashed up,
And I know it's right,
And I feel it's time to kill.
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
And I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe...
Well I'm in panic...

    wendyclear should kill herself or learn how to type english. this song rocks. its all about something holding you back from what you love to do. probably ties to emotions like wendy tried (pathetically) to say.

    I always thought he was saying, "I'm a faggot, and I can't breed."

    My Interpretation

    Seems to be a song about a paraplegic (or someone of that nature) who wants to kill himself or be euthanized. Not exactly a pleasant thought... And I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't agree with this "message," but I think the more important thing is to realize the extreme distress a person in that situation would feel.

    I got this clot that says That I can't do a thing, A blood clot in the brain that has resulted in a paralyzing stroke, for example.

    And it kills me that What I love I can't do, It kills me. Is smashed up, My life is smashed up, Lamentation of the fact that a debilitating disability prevents one from living like a "normal" person, and feeling as if one's life has been destroyed by the condition.

    And I know it's right, And I feel it's time to kill. Belief and even certainty that it would be right to end one's life under these conditions. Belief that dying is preferable to suffering for life.

    I'm in panic 'cause I can't breathe... Imagine being unable to breathe by yourself, unable to even more your body, relying on a machine to pump your lungs to keep you alive. Of course that is panic inducing.

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.

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/

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.
