It's kinda hard to wear high heels, or slip on banana peels, how does she get in and out of tubs
I hope she doesn't get mad, I hope she thinks this song is good not bad
'cause we think that she's totally rad, she's Nubs

No fingers no toes she doesn't own elbows, no phalanges no knobby knees to knock
She doesn't need knuckles or hands to go see punk rock bands, she's always in the stands, she's Nubs
She can't pick up a phone, she can't get dressed alone, she's got no funny bone, she's Nubs
No shoes no feet but we sure do think she's neat, she's Nubs, she's Nubs, she's Nubs

I asked her if she wanted a drink, I asked her if she liked Toronto, I asked her to go to the bar
But all she said was no thanks, no and no

It was time for her to leave, so I grabbed and shook her sleeve, and told her I'd see her at the next club
She got into a pack, some guy put her on his back, she said goodbye and kinda waved her stub

She's got beautiful eyes, and breasts regular size, but without calves and thighs she's Nubs
It's hard to give good head or get tied to a bed, when all you've got is a body and head, she's Nubs

She's Nubs, she's Nubs, she's Nubs, she's Nubs, she's Nubs, she's Nubs
She may not walk the walk, she may not like to talk, but bopy does she know how to rock
She's Nubs

    This song is about Tali Osbourne an inspirational speaker who was born without arms and is missing bones in her legs. I met Tali at a summer camp she was very kind and told me that this song was written about her by NOFX. It was amazing to see someone without arms we would think struggle with putting on a coat, texting, or eating chocolate cake do so with ease.

    i love this song so much. "It's hard to give good head or get tied to a bed." it really explores the difficulties in a nubs' sex life. i feel for them more than ever now.

    this definately has a little more meaning than just... theres a hott chik without arms or legs; cool! i think it conveys that ANYONE can go clubbing and stuff, and that its more than peoples disabiltys, its their normality that makes people who they are. This girl goes to punk rock shows, has sex, and is obviously confident enough to reject a guy (heehee rejected!)....

    I'm pretty sure "Nubs" is a good friend of the whole Fat Wreck crew, she's all over their website. Check out the "Bore Journal" on NOFX.org

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.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.
