Waking up every day in the same bed for nine long years and it all goes by.
I'm glad with what I got so you won't hear one word of regret coming out of my mouth.
I've wasted so much goddamn precious time worrying and complaining.
I'm so spoiled my eyes sewn shut.
I thought I was caught in a rut,
But I'm in no danger.
Yeah, I'm lucky.
Some people are more dull than me.
I'm so afraid of turning into a blank face.
Did you get lost on the drive?
How does it feel to be completely unnerved by the repetitive pounding of every day?
And every fucking day you're doing something,
How does it feel to go nowhere?
Where will you be 15 years from now?
Because accomplishments are nothing but instant gratification.
And were all gonna rot...

    "i thought i was caught in a rut, but i'm in no danger. yeah, i'm lucky" Osker with something that could be called 'uplifting'??? well maybe not so uplifting for most bands, but for these guys it doesn't get much more positive. but of course the whole song isn't like that it ends with... "because accomplishments are nothing but instant gratification. and were all gonna rot..." :)

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
