See all the people- Longing to be
Living their lives regretlessly
Trying to repress the pain in their lives
Reassuring themselves- Living with lies
No way to break through- Not on my own
Can't push away all the sorrow I've known
Have to release every thought or care
And take control life is a dare
I can start over today
Live my life a different way
Can't I find a way to erase bad times to make
Everything OK
I'll start over and live- Every single day
Regrets and memories- No remorse- No apologies
No reason for me to despair- No future at all
Ask if I care
I got time- On my side- Twenty four hours in my life
Can't hang on to what's in my past
Full speed ahead- Hard and fast
At the end with each dropping sun
Can't erase what has been done who cares
What happened long ago- I don't want to know
Can't face tomorrow with these thoughts
Of yesterday
I can't escape the lies and make them go away
Wish I had the answers to help me make it through
Can't shake these images no matter what I do
I guess I'll use them to make a stronger man
I'll use each
Twisted tortured memory to help me understand
And I will learn
From mistakes that everyone makes- I've got
To find a way
I guess I'll have to live with them- every single day

    To me, this is always among my top 5 Pennywise songs. It's an anthem that everyone should listen to. Definitely pertains to the "live fast, die young" theme, but not so directly. We never no what's goin to happen, so live each and every single day to the fullest, and always try to learn from your mistakes and make the best of what you're given.

    What I love about Pennywise that their music really goes euphorically and their lyrics are easy to understand, directly written and approachable and partly, as to find in this case, realizeable for everyone. It gives the advice to each and every single person out there to live a life in which you can say at any time: I didn't was a god damn second (especially not by producing feels of guilty to a so called creator).

    It's about forgetting about the past and living everyday to the fullest instead of worrying about what could've been

    yes, it is about living your life to the fullest, but it also a song about moving on with your life in a positive manner. He seems to have dark memories of the past that haunt him, and hinders him from living his life to the fullest. So he is saying "hey i gotta one with my life and accept the mistakes that I've made and use them to further my own well-being".

    As said, a song straight to the point. It's my favourite song and always lifts my spirits when someone tries to stamp on you.

    Live your life every single day, dont do it tomorrow, or next week, do it today. If bad memories kick you down, sweep them aside and move on.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
