Last week, Kyle quit the band
Now we're back together, uh
Misunderstanding, didn't understand
It doesn't matter, now we're back together again
Uh la la la la la

Couldn't split up Kato and Nash
That's true
Couldn't split up Tango and Cash
That's also true

This is our song of exultant joy because
We only came to kick some ass
Rock the fuckin' house and kick some ass
What we gonna do with all the cash?

Smoke hash, and then we thrash
We'll throw a big ol' bash, y'all
And everyone is invited to the bash
And everyone, you're all invited to the bash
C'mon Kyle, watch out, c'mon

    This song is about being a duo. Your a team, and you work together through thick and thin. It is thier song to express thier "exultant joy" about being in abd together.

    Yeah I agree with element. I reckon its the 2nd part to inward singing cos thats when Kyle left the band. The song is brilliant-like all Tenacious D songs. Can these guys ever go wrong?

    ...this song kicks ass. Your right, when they perform it live its right after Inward Singing. They get in a fight on stage then Kyle gives Jack the finger and starts to walk off stage....Jack consoles him and comes back to the mic and sings "Half a minute ago...Kyle quit the band" Its fucking hilarious. Also a really great Reggae, rock band from Long Beach called Bargain Music cover this song in one of their dubs....its pretty killer......

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Mental Istid
Ebba Grön
This is one of my favorite songs.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
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.
Album art
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.
