You're hot, stop and drop and roll
I'll jump in the swimming hole
So I can hear your cheers
I've seen all the episodes
I know all the secret codes
So where I go I don't need roads
I'm flying over

I'll fly right over
2P, you take my control
Teach me how to rock and roll
Or I'll fall down and die
I betcha don't know where to find (extra extra)
Our extra life times 99
I know you tried but still we died
Our game is over

This love is over
Reset, can't reset the tears
So sad, princess isn't here
She's making out with all my fears

    it seems like he's saying that he knows all the tricks and games people play and that the relationship is over. and it's too late to fix it.

    The version I have at the begining he says "February 16, 2001, 2(?) 34 pm." Anyway...I agree with angel. He saying that been there done that kind of thing. Maybe its not just people, but a relationship inperticular.

    definitely one of my favorite ozma songs, the acoustic version is awesome (the one that says the date/time before it), but the electric is something else.

    there's another acoustic version of it too, and that one is in my opinion the best.

    i heard the same thing blahah said. but the "where we go, we don't need roads, i'm flying over...." part is from their obsession with back to the future where they say "roads? Where we go, we don't need roads."

    i realized one day that i actually do know how to find extra life times ninety-nine. which made me feel really bad.

    in Super Mario 64: if you get all 120 stars, a cannon opens up in the front of Peach's castle by the water hole. Get the flying hat, run to the cannon, get in, and fly up to the top of the castle. Yoshi is waiting. He gives you 99 lives if you talk to him and then your ozma dreams are all fulfilled.

    a relationship over, no duh. i have the acoustic version that my cousin gave to me as a weezer song, it didn't sound like weezer to me so i googled the lyrics and found out it was really ozma(i had not heard of them before). i like this song a lot, wish i could hear the electric version, though.

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.
Album art
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
