How many people want to kick some ass?

I used to be
A nerd
Grew up in the
Suburbs
Nothing there
Ever went wrong
I made it up
In this song
I talk about
The heard
I say stuff like
Its all good
Tell people I'm down
With all the cool kids
Down town
When I've never even
Been there

[Chorus]
How many people want to kick some ass
(I do I do)
And how many people are sick of holding it back
(I am) well I am too
So don't lay another finger on her
She's mine and I still want her
You can put your hands up on her,
You're a goner a goner
And how many people are sick of holding it back
(I am I am)
And how many people want to kick some ass?
I would if I could but
I'm really just a sensitive artist
But portrayed like I am the hardest

So swing your cap around
To the back
You think you rhyme
But you can't rap
Loosen that strap
A little more
Till your axe
Hits the floor
Flip off your fans
Make um cheer
Try to look
Sincere
Angers today's
Fashion
So sing another song about
Bashing someone's head in

[Chorus]

Acting like
I'm not the smartest
I'm really just a Sensitive artist

So don't lay another finger on her
She's mine and I still want her
You can put your hands up on her,
You're a goner a goner
And how many people are sick of holding it back
(I am I am)
And how many people want to kick some ass?

I said how many people want to kick some ass
How many people want to kick some ass
What ya gunna do when you're sick of holding it back?
I think ill kick some ass
How many people want to kick some ass
I would if I could but
I'm really just a sensitive artist
But portrayed like I am the hardest
Acting like
I'm not the smartest
I'm really just a sensitive artist
Artist

    My girlfriend loves this song, and she listens to it alot. SHe decifered it for me. She thinks it basically is about how everyone made fun of him when he was a a geeky teenager and how he just wants to kick their asses now that he's older and stronger.

    Also, she thinks the chorus is possibly about a time when some guy might have f-cked around with his girlfriend and he's pissed so he's gonna kick his ass.

    This song is wicked sweet. It says so much with so little.

    Not to disrespect SublimeNick, but this song is actually just making fun of bands like Limp Bizkit. You know, "you think you rhyme but you can't rap" and so on. However, the writer also is making fun of himself a little bit; he knows he's nothing more than a sensitive artist, nothing close to a badass; yet sometimes he kind of wishes he could be one, too. If you note the line "so write another song about bashing someone's head in", and you know the line "I think I'm gonna bash his head in" from Stroke 9's "Little Black Backpack", you understand how he's mocking himself a little bit.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
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.

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."
