Alright you maggots get up
Do you love me
I can't hear you
Pick em' up and put em' down
You're in the army now
Well make a man of you
Another solider too
Shoulders back and stomach in
We'll teach you discipline
Mother's son and father's daughter
Shut it up and follow hard
Study up on weaponry
M680, M15
Big Sam knows the enemy
Flim flam big slam
Tell the Major what you see
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Ayatollah rock the house
Book them with minnie mouse
Donald Duck is going red
Goffey's working for the feds
Eight ball in the side pocket
I just shot my last rocket
Their coming back there on my tail
Aren't you glad I escaped from jail
Bangkok Bronx
Bangkok Bronx
Girls on the strip
It's a one-way trip
Bangkok Bronx
Pact-pong, pact-pong
Bangkok Bronx
Solidgers die for free
NATO's up a tree
Tourists ninety three
Score now, pay later
It's a lay away plan
Free vacation in Iran
Stop and see the middle-east
Miles and miles of lovely beach
Get that copper tone tan
On radioactive sand
Those at home just got a directive
All report to the neighbourhood collective
Ten hours a day
Making makeup so the girls at the front
Can be more protected
If I die on the Russian front
Bury me with Russian mud
If they drop us in the East
Stand up, hook off, off your seat

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
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.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.
