Back with another one of those block rockin' beats
Back with another one of those block rockin' beats
Back with another one of those block rockin' beats
Back with another one of those block rockin' beats

Back with another one of those block rockin' beats

We're 'bout ready to rock steady
We're 'bout ready to rock steady

Back with another one of those block rockin' beats
Back with another one of those block rockin' beats

    It’s a common misconception that this song is about some, well as the name supposedly suggests, coming up with a new ‘block rockin’ beat’. However, the real meaning of this song lies behind an old age pensioner named Margaret and her cat(s). Margaret’s cat, of whom goes by the name of ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ is commonly run over by traffic as they live by the congested roads of central London. So, as one proceeds to do at the death of a pet, she goes out and buys a new cat and once again renames the cat ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’. Margaret has had in the range of 300-400 cats now, all of which named ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’, accept for one going by the name of ‘Buddha’. Buddha became clinically depressed and was found drowned at the bottom of a kitchen sink. None over of Margaret’s cats have been called ‘Buddha’ simply because overwhelmingly painful memories would get the better of Margaret. If you have felt touched and inspired by the tale of Margaret and her cats you can visit her at Wesley’s Chapel of where her mangled corpse lays below the ground. Yes, she is dead now.

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.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
