(It's alright)
(It's alright)
I can hear it
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)

Dictation being forced in Afghanistan
Revolution in South Africa taking a stand
People in Eurasia on the brink of oppression
I hope it's gonna be alright
'Cause the music plays forever
(For it goes on and on and on and on)
Yeahah

I hope it's gonna be alright
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)

Generations will come and go (Will come and go)
But there's one thing for sure
Music is our life's foundation
And shall succeed all the nations to come
Yeahah

I hope it's gonna be alright
'Cause the music plays forever
(For it goes on and on and on and on...)
(Yeahah)

I hope it's gonna be alright
(On and on and on...)

'Cause the music plays forever
(For it goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on)

The year three thousand may still come to pass
But the music shall last
I can hear it on a timeless wavelength
Never dissipating but giving us strength

I hope it's gonna be alright
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)

I hope it's gonna be alright

(Pu bu dup dup pu pu do bu dup...)

(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)
(For it goes on and on and on and on)
(Alright, Alright, Alright, Alright)

Let your body move tonight
'Cause it's gonna be alright
(It's alright)
(It will be alright)
(It's alright)
(It's gonna be alright)
(Aaahahahahahahaaheheheehheeh...)
(It's gonna be)
(It's gonna be)
(It's gonna be)
(It's gonna be)
(Alright)
(It's gonna be all)
(It's gonna be all)
(Alright)
(It's gonna be all)
(Alright)
(It's gonna be all)
(Alright)
'Cause the music plays forever
(It's gonna be all)
(It's gonna be all)
(It's gonna be all)
(It's gonna be all)
(It's gonna be alright)
(It's alright)

I can hear it on a timeless wavelength (eehh...)
Never dissipating but giving us strength (eehh...)
I hope it's gonna be alright (aahh...)
'Cause the music plays forever on and on and on and on and on and on and on...

("I hope it's gonna be alright")
("I hope it's gonna be alright")
("I hope it's gonna be alright")
("I hope it's gonna be alright")
("I hope it's gonna be alright")
(aahh...)

    I've gotta disagree. It's a gorgeous song. At least the album version is. I don't care for the more techno-ish single remix. Supposedly Neil and Chris hated the way the Introspective version turned out. So, again, I play the role of the contrarian.

    I don't think the claim is that music is going to prevent all the s*** that's going on...just that at least we have music and always will, no matter how much everything else sucks.

    This is probably the worst of all the Pet Shop Boy songs. Not only is the sentiment totally wrong (The world is going to hell in a handcart and music will save it....rrriight), but it is a total mess of a song that Tennant/Lowe picked up from somewhere and put their own take on it, i.e. one of their very few cover versions. I wish they'd left it in the gutter where they'd found it.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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.
