Cally Man

and some man live his life for prophets alone
that very same man he lives his life all alone
and the road to life yes it goes up and down
doesnt really matter as long as the music goes on

hey mister collie man why dont you come round no more
hey mister collie collie man dont you hear me troubled call
hey mister collie man look i didnt come to disturb
you best not be come round here unless you've got me sensi herb

i never needed any reason for me to say
through all them troubled times yes me love you any way
and the roughest path you know the rocky rocky road
you know that life and love is a heavy heavy load

hey mister collie man why dont you come round no more
hey mister collie collie man dont you hear me troubled call
hey mister collie man look i didnt come to disturb
you best not be come round here unless you've got me sensi herb
you best not be come round here unless you've got me sensi herb

    In the first line, it's "profits" not "prophets". Stoopid rocks everything.

    This song is about Mile's uncle who used to get him weed when he was 13.

    just to let you know I think its collie man, but what the hell. I love this song, The way if flows and its catchy sound, I just ran across it by accident. I love it. I agree, It is their best song. I think its simply about how music can help you through the really hard times in your life.

    yeah, frogger is right - its "Collie" Man. Collie is another term for some dank ass weed lol. So essentially the Collie Man is the weed-man, his drug dealer. But this song is definately my top 3 favorites by them, so smooth and mellow.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Blue
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
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
