Is it just a car
Or is it so much more?
It's a superstar
With the gas to the floor

Zero to sixty in remarkable time
It's the automobile that's top of the line
We got a k car on the road of life
We're gonna get far if the driver's Christ

Is it just a car
Or is it so much more?
It's a superstar
With the gas to the floor

In a drag race all the others fall
And Brandon Ebel just gave us a call

    I think this song doesn't have much meaning. Just a typical silly RK song. As some may know a Reliant K(with an 'a' not an 'e' like the band) or K-car is a car put out by Plymouth. Anyone who has had the misfortune of driving one knows that they suck. Also Brandon Ebel is the founder of BEC and Tooth and Nail Records who first gave RK their deal. And when you add a missing third verse you get a clearer picture: we got a k car on the road of life. we're gonna get far if the driver's Christ we got a k car she suites the band and we're gonna get far cuz it's in God's hands, it's in God's hands

    In my opinion, I think Relient K is saying, in a sentence, 'we aren't that good but if God's driving we'll go far.' Now I'm not saying that they aren't good, but I think they feel that their talent comes from God and consequently without Him they would be just like a junky K-car.

    Actually... the band's name came from Matt Hoopes's car, a Plymouth Reliant K... it was an old trashed up car & they actually stopped it in the middle of a highway to see how fast it could go from 0 to 60 in... zero to sixty in remarkable time... & then tieing all that in w/ their message about Christ... ya just a lil bit o' backround :-) hehe

    It's all about the metaphors, y'know? Like the car is the way of making the journey through life&how Christ can help them through life, no matter what's thrown at them. Well, I was listening to it before&that suddenly hit me.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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”
