Look around, the writing's on the wall
Don't you think we're all feeling crazed
In a world, where nothing's as it seems
Paved with broken dreams, I found truth
My God, I should know you're right
I should know it's right to say I thank you for my days

Come around and see the other side
Stepping stones, away from the limelight
Come around and breathe in piece of mind
And for it all, I thank you. I thank you.

Sit down, lose yourself in thought
Then you might find out it's all we've got
Take a chance, the future's in your hands
Make it what you can before your time has reached the end

Come around and see the other side
Stepping stones, away from the limelight
Come around and breathe in piece of mind
And for it all, I thank you. I thank you.

Come around and see the other side
Stepping stones, away from the limelight
Come around, and breathe in piece of mind
And for it all
You'll make it on your own
Yeah, you're free
Stepping stones away from the limelight
Come around and breathe in piece of mind
And for it all I thank you, I thank you, I thank you,
I thank you

    To me it sounds like a conversion to religion, and suggesting to other people that they should give it a chance.

    "My God, I should know you're right I should know it's right to say I think you for my days"

    He believes in God!....

    He's thanking Him, and telling ppl how good it gets when u know and belive God is right...

    I think that makes sense...

    I agree with Myhit&run. Belief and faith and love for God is contagious. He just wants to share it with everyone.

    I agree with the religious interpretation. Just makes sense considering the "My God, I should know You're right. I should know it's right to thank You for my days" line. I love The Calling I hope they do another album as good as Camino Palmero in the future.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
