I am the best message out of the rest of them
Are you all alone, are you all alone?
I am the best message out of the rest of them
Are you all alone, are you all alone?

I am the best message out of the rest of them
Are you alone, are you all alone?

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
Have you got it called?
You're ice cold with your eyes closed
You're ice cold, have you got it all?

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
(I am a message, I am a message)
You're selling your soul, have you got it all?
(I am a message, I am a message)

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
(I am a message, I am a message)
You're selling your soul, have you got it all?
(I am a message, I am a message)

So I am the best message out of the rest of them
Are you all alone, are you all alone?

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
Have you got it called?
You're ice cold with your eyes closed
You're ice cold, have you got it all?

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
(I am a message, I am a message)
You're selling your soul, have you got it all?
(I am a message, I am a message)

You're selling your soul, you're selling your soul
(I am a message, I am a message)
You're selling your soul, have you got it all?
(I am a message, I am a message)

I am a message, I am a message
I am a message, I am a, I am a
I am a message, I am a message
I am a message, I am a, I am a

I am a message, I am a message
I am a message, I am a, I am a
I am a message, I am a message
I am a message, I am a, I am a

    some lyric sites say that "I am the best man, sits out of the rest of them" is actually "I am the best message out of the rest of them" it sounds like that a bit too. Kinda works with the whole "i am a message" thing but i dunno. Anyone else know for sure?

    I'm pretty certain it's "I am the best message..."

    I think in the chorus Roddy actually alternates between singing "You're selling your soul" and "Your selling us all"

    Great song anyway.

    I'm pretty sure that these lyrics are wrong, despite what it may say on other websites, the lyrics are "I am the best message out of the rest of them". Also, the line "you're ice cold, with you're eyes closed" seems to have been just shortened here to "with your eyes closed", which, on it's own, doesn't actually make any sense

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
