Scams and lies and alibis
Are all your stock in trade
Spin me round, I'm upside down
And I don't know the date

I feel outsmarted, deceived and deluded
Completely inverted and unaware
Of all the changes and most of the dangers
And I've reached the stage where I just don't care

I tried to believe in you
I was only deceived by you
So now I'll be leaving you
I guess, I'll be seeing you

Subterfuge divide and rule
Are all your favorite games
Plans and ploys are basic toys
To realize your aims

I tried to hold on, just try to hang on
Try to pretend we could get somewhere
But you're so intent on some pointless diversion
We soon reached the point where I just don't care

I tried to believe in you
I was only deceived by you
So now I'll be leaving you
I guess, I'll be seeing you

Well, if it ain't one thing then it's another
First, you cut me cold
Then you're my long lost brother

But I know, I can't go on much longer
With the way things are
'cause I'm much stronger

I tried to believe in you
I was only deceived by you

I tried to believe in you
But I was only deceived by you
So now I'll be leaving you
I guess, I'll be seeing you

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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."
