Molly was a good girl and she knew the reasons why
So when she went back in the bathroom
She would never come outside
She was a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar

Oh!
Liar!
Ohh, ohh!
Oh!
Liar!
Ohh, ohh!

Molly was a good girl and she knew the reasons why
Molly was a good girl and she knew the reasons why
She was a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar

Oh!
Liar!
Ohh, ohh!
Oh!
Liar!
Ohh, ohh!
Oh!

Molly was a good girl
Molly, Molly was a good girl
Molly, Molly was a- Molly was a
Molly, Molly, Molly was a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a liar
She's a good girl
And it felt great to be a no good, lousy, motherfucking, stupid--

Oh!
Liar!
Oh!
Liar!
Ohh, ohh!
Oh!

    Everyone does realise its not a girl? its a drug, This song is about MDMA otherwise known as molly or its lesser, cut form ecstasy. Around the time the song came out is when it was getting harder and harder to find pure MDMA but people would still pass off the crap they had as "molly". So "when she went into the bathroom she would never come out side" would mean people eating the drug, and the whole liar part would be that it wasn't really pure. It was still ecstasy.

    First post... This song to me is about those people who fucking lie about everything they do to get ahead and once someone actually findt hem out they just smile and deny it, getting away once more. This song seems angry.

    You could always... ya know... BUY IT.

    amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00004SGTY/qid=1030094155/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3/102-1122583-8746500

    P.S. It says disc 2 is just a couple more 'Bitches' remixes, but it's really the original version of 'Molly' and the remix.

    Hrm, considering the lines: "Molly was a good girl and she knew the reasons why So when she went back in the bathroom She would never come outside" I think this was either about a suicide or a drug overdose, more likely suicide beacuse of: "She's a good girl And it felt great to be a no good, lousy, motherfucking, stupid-- " (i.e. self-loathing)

    I think its about a girl who lives her life following the rules, and being an all out goody two shoes .Then she begins to lie, and it feels good to break the rules, so she goes further, and begins drugs. Then comes the OD (When she went into the bathroom she would never come outside)

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.

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/

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
