Testosterone in large amounts
Your little sister got kicked out of
God you can't shave your head
Come to the show, the boys they rock harder
Your mother lent you her slip
She lent you her bright red lipstick
And your shoes are hurting your back
But boy, don't you look gorgeous

You look gorgeous
You look gorgeous
You look gorgeous
You look gorgeous

This is but an observation
You've a bullet in your foot
You make it hard for us bitches
Inconsequential in your back bends
Your taste in men leaves something to be desired
You love them to be aloof and self obsessed
They love you in your mini dress

You are looking gorgeous
You're looking gorgeous
Gorgeous
You're looking gorgeous

When your voice is raised above a certain level
I'm afraid we must go to the ladies room
I left your competence in curlers

You look gorgeous
You look gorgeous
You're looking gorgeous
How you look gorgeous

    Ever aware of her own culturally conditioned false self vs. her consuming need to stay in the way things are and not the way we want (soooooo badly) for them to appear to be, Al takes off in yet another trip into what is for her the essential conflict: "I have to be this to play the game out there with the robots, but I am =not= a robot, and it drives me nuts when I act like one."

    How many of Al's tunes are rants about her momentary -- okay; maybe they last a few hours -- lapses of the awareness / consciousness / mindfulness she clearly prizes so highly? "20/20," "Bent for You," "Death of Cinderella," "Everything," "Fear of Bliss," "Flinch," "No Pressure...," "Out is Through," "Purgatorying," "So Unsexy," "Thank U," etc., etc.

    Either Al is =very= hard on herself, just self-aware and self-accepting, or maybe even =both= (at different times). In whatever event, she's said numerous times that her writing is her process of revelation and separating the chicken salad from the chicken s**t.

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."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
