Please just blame me for everything, you can leave the others out.
It’s all my fault, it’s all my…
Please just hate me for everything, you’ve got me figured out.
It’s all my fault, it’s all my…
The hours I stole from you last night, weren’t enough to make this right.
So suffocate me here for a while, because I deserve every lost breath.
Please just wake me from every dream, the scenes are timing out.
It’s all my fault, it’s all my…
Please just take me from everything, I really care about.
It’s all my fault, it’s all my fault.
The hours I stole from you last night, weren’t enough to make this right.
So suffocate me here for a while, because I deserve every lost breath.
All the times I wrote it off, you were right all along and I was wrong.
It won’t all just absolve, in a half-truth epilogue, creased with wrong

    It seems that he is resigned in the fact that no matter what happens he will be blamed. So he's giving permission (sarcastically) to take the blame. This is such a great song! He sings with so much emotion!

    i can relate to this song. i have been stuck in a relationship in which i have always taken the blame for everything that has gone wrong, every argument, every negative thing. i always just took the blame just to end the argument so things could be better. like he says in the end "it won't all just absolve, in a half-truthed epilogue, ceased with wrong" taking the blame didn't make the problem go away. hence the relationship ended.

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."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
