The young stale memories of
Play the role to your part
Librarian, find me the pole
The one that kicks your head in
To my own time
Roll your own innocence by
Grab on to my sleeve
The one that grabs at your ankle
Debate to understand that we all have a flaw
Then fail to represent your life as you know it
God grant you one wish
To turn back the time
Correct and create
Making sense of

Me and my star
Matthew, goodnight
You know by lord
When you'll be forgiven
Maria my star, Matthew, goodnight
You know by lord
When you'll be forgiven

So they pulled your confidence down
With those verbal discrepancies
Now and then you'll gain what they've lost
Through a challenge of unpronounced
Pain is only a pulse, if you stop feeling it
You might be able to use
The very thing that makes us up

Me and my star
Matthew, goodnight
You know by lord
When you'll be forgiven
Maria my star, Matthew, goodnight
You know my lord

Wait, now, here
When will you believe?
I'm merely asking you to help me
When did I say to murder?
Wait now, here
Please hear me out
Time consumer, time consuming
Consume me
Down and out, now

Me and my star
Matthew, goodnight
You know by lord
When you'll be forgiven
Maria my star, Matthew, goodnight
You know by lord
When you'll be forgiven

You know, goodnight
And I'll promise you that
You know, goodnight
And I'll promise you that

    This song is about Coheed dealing with the fact he must kill his children. This song in particular also deals with the killing of his two youngest, the twins, Maria and Matthew. He poisons them both. If you read the amazing comics, you will understand.

    the some is about Coheed (The father of Claudio in The Amory Wars story) killing Maria and Matthew (The twins mentioned in early songs). the "Maria my star...Matthew goodnight" is Coheeds last words to them.

    the first time i heard c&c, i heard everything evil, and it was unlike anything id heard. i didnt really knowif i liked it until i borrowed the cd from someone... i listened to some other songs and still it was unlike anything else. they have so much talent and can really make you feel "emo", but in no way can you really label them...just great music. they are coheedand cambria, enough said.

    Coheed and Cambria are NOT emo. They are pure ROCK. In fact, they are the revival of MELODIC rock. THey are just amazing. Of you think their lyrics are good, go listen to them. The guy can sing like no other. His range is rediculous. I love these guys. AMAZING.

    i don't believe that someone went through every coheed and cambria song making the same post about them not being emo. who said they are in the first place? and it really doesn't matter, they are just unique and amazing live. this song rocks.

    C&C are simply amazing. They are one of the most talented bands I've heard in a while.

its amazing how far music can come.. 24 years after it released and its one of the most heartfelt songs ive heard

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
