Trapped in a box by a cockney nutjob
'Ave a cup of tea, 'ave a cup of tea
I'm the hitcher
Let me put you in the picture
Creeping in your room in the dead of night
With me solo polo vision
(that's right)

I'm a cockney geezer
Watch me bleed ya
I knew the ripper, when he was just a nipper
I taught him how to slice
I cut him up a treat

Pound your banana (two pound your pear)
Pound your banana (two pound your pear)
Pound your banana (two pound your pear)
14 shillings for your melons (oh yeah)

(We're the Piper twins
We're Jim and Jackie Piper
Cutting through the night like a windscreen
Wiping you away, like raindrops
Don't mess with the boys)

Shut your noise
Coming in strong like a freakshow nightmare
Dancing skeletons - white, blue and yella uns
Moving through the shadows with the speed of a cat
And if you cross us weíll cut ya
And you ain't gonna like that...

I'm bad juju
I use voodoo if I choose to
I harness the forces of evil to abuse you
With power, a polo, an evil magnet
Sucking up your soul
And you ain't gonna like that.

    The other version is 99% accurate, but its got the wrong title. It also has the piper twins verse... "We're the piper twins, Jim and Jackie Piper cutting through the night like a windscreen wiping you away like rain drops dont mess with the boys" Shut your noise

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
