La policía te está extorsionando (dinero)
Pero ellos viven de lo que tú estás pagando
Y si te tratan como a un delincuente (ladrón)
No es tu culpa, dale gracias al regente
Hay que arrancar el problema de raíz (ajá)
Y cambiar al gobierno de nuestro país
A la gente que esta en la burocracia
A esa gente que le gustan las migajas
Yo por eso me quejo y me quejo
Porque aquí es donde vivo y yo ya no soy un pendejo
Que no wachas, los puestos del gobierno
Hay personas que se están enriqueciendo

Gente que vive en la pobreza
Nadie hace nada porque a nadie le interesa
Es la gente de arriba te detesta
Hay más gente que quiere que caigan sus cabezas
Si le das mas poder al poder
Mas duro te van a venir a coger
Porque fuimos potencia mundial
Somos pobres, nos manejan mal

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Para que te demos en la madre
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme todo el poder
So I can come around to joder

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Para que te demos en la madre
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme todo el poder
So I can come around to joder

Dámele, dámele, dámele, dámele todo el poder
Dámele, dámele, dámele, dámele todo el power
Dámele, dámele, dámele, dámele todo el poder
Dámele, dámele, dámele, dámele todo el power

Así es, puto
Fuck you puto baboso

Porque no nacimos donde no hay que comer
No hay por qué preguntarnos ¿cómo le vamos a hacer?
Si nos pintan como a unos huevones
No lo somos, viva México, cabrones
Que se sienta el power mexicano
Que se sienta, todos juntos como hermanos
Porque somos más, jalamos más parejo
¿Por qué estar siguiendo a una bola de pendejos
Que nos llevan por donde les conviene?
Y es nuestro sudor lo que los mantiene
Los mantiene comiendo pan caliente
Ese pan es el pan de nuestra gente

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Para que te demos en la madre
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme todo el poder
So I can come around to joder

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Para que te demos en la madre
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme todo el poder
So I can come around to joder

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Para que te demos en la madre
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme todo el poder
So I can come around to joder

Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power
Dame, dame, dame, dame todo el power

El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido
El Tito y el Guidos, jamás serán vencidos

Dame, dame, dame, dame el poder
Dame, dame, dame todo el power
Dame, dame, dame, dame el poder
Dame, dame, dame todo el power
Dame, dame, dame, dame el poder
Dame, dame, dame todo el power

    it's talking about how the government ia all fucked up in mexico. especially police corruption. and that the richer get richer and the poor get poorer. and now it's time to stand up for yourself and if everybody puts in every ounce of power that they have it is possible to change a lot of the politicians that fuck up the people.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

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
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.

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.
