Verse 1:
Leave me out
Of any games you play
Just let me walk away
If you settle things down
Let me go in peace
I try to spread my love all around

'Cause your dirty secrets
Have turned me into a dirty lie
I know everything that you ever said
Was just to ease my mind

When I got caught
Inside your web
It was taking me over
You were leaving me under the ground

Chorus:
With my voice, With my hands
I will do anything that I want to do with them
It's my choice, And they're my demands
They are strong enough to break the skin

Verse 2:
Now that you're gone
I don't need much of anything
That you have for me anymore
You left me alone
But then I suppose
That's just the way my story goes

'Cause these dirty feelings
Have pushed me over the line
Know that all the things that you ever did
Will kick your ass in time

When I break free
From your linked chains
That were taking me over
They were keeping me under the ground

Chorus:
With my voice, With my hands
I will do anything that I want to do with them
It's my choice, And they're my demands
They are strong enough to break the skin

Bridge:
I've figured out my weaknesses
And so I hide them from you
Every time you come around
I feel it's all that I can do

There's a nervousness that comes with this
But I cannot describe it
So I hide out in the basement,
in an alley where it's dark and cold and you can never
Find me there.

But now that I'm stronger
I will shout it out loud
You were taking me over
But now I'm rising over the crowd

Chorus:
With my voice, With my hands
I will do anything that I want to do with them
It's my choice, And they're my demands
They are strong enough to break the skin

    "It’s about doing what ever you want to do and doing it the way you want to do it. The chorus says it best: "With My voice and my hands, I will do anything that I want to do with them." - Garen

    I think it's great that Granian has some songs up here, these songs just touch the surface of the great songs he has writen. He is amazing live, and I hope more people find this music. Oh yea, this is well my favorite song.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Dreamwalker
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.

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/
