Long neck, short leash
Sweet lips are black, black, black, black
You walk, I linger
Little sticks stagger and fall

Heel, heel
Heel, heel

You're cryin', well listen
This time you really were bad, bad, bad, bad
I will show you some discipline
Yes, you will learn some respect, respect, respect

Heel, heel
Heel, heel, yeah

God, I love you
You're so pretty
Love you, love you
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty

Heel, heel
Heel, heel

Heel, heel
Heel, heel, yeah

God, I love you
You're so pretty
Love you, love you
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty
Pretty, pretty

    Sounds like someone's on a short leash, hm? Toadies are so awesome. Such twisted lyrics and very catchy music.

    It's about a dominant-submissive sexual relationship. This guy has a pretty sick mind.

    "Where is My Mind" isn't the only song toadies stolen from the Pixies, the structure and lyric of this song is a complete knockoff of "tame" songmeanings.net/lyric.php

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.

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.
