So much fun to be had in my head
No more sunshine
So much fun just lying in my bed
No more sunshine
I can't face the sunlight and the dirt outside
Wanna stay in 666 where this darkness don't lie

Drug drug druggy
Got a feeling sweet like honey
Drug drug druggy
Need sensation like my baby
Show me your scars you're so aware
I'm not barbaric I just care

Drug drug drug
I need a reflection to prove I exist
No more sunshine
I am a victim of designer blitz
No more sunshine
Dance like a robot when you're chained at the knee
The C.I.A say you're all they'll ever need

Drug drug druggy
Got a feeling sweet like honey
Drug drug druggy
Need sensation like my baby
Snort your lines you're so aware
I'm not barbaric I just care

Drug drug druggy
Got a feeling sweet like honey
Drug drug druggy
Need sensation like my baby

    It's a very Manics song in that it was flying in the face of conventional youth culture at the time. In the early '90s "drug culture" was hip and the NME et al used to play-up bands' chemical excesses as being part of a youthful rebellion against staid, conservative, mainstream culture. In this song the Manics are turning that on its head, arguing that designer-drug users are apathetic, decadent, apolitical and self-destructive and are doing nothing to make the world a better place, quite the opposite. "Show me your scars you're so aware" might be a reference to Ritchie Edwards' self-harming, comparing it to drug-use as self-harm (Edwards also had a drink problem) or it might be having at go at "heroin chic" and the idea of the emaciated look as something to aspire to. "Dance like a robot when you're chained at the knee The C.I.A. say you're all they'll ever need" is the most explicitly political part; at the time designer drugs (notably ecstacy or "E" as referenced in the song's last line) were associated with rave culture which these lines allude to with its "robotic" glass-eyed dancers. The Manics seem to be suggesting that, rather than being a threat to the established order, such pleasure-seeking consumers were actually re-enforcing it.

    "It's just a very ambivalent attitude to drugs - and the different things that people use as drugs. Everybody has their own little obsession. I find it really annoying the way people come up to you and say 'Hey, I just smoked a couple of joints and I'm really off my head.' So what? If someone said ' I've drunk 10 pints and I'm really out of it,' you'd think they were pathetic, and it's the same thing." (Richey James; Melody Maker, 19 June 1993)

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.

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.

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.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
