Billion of people, they have their reasons
No destination, just a slave to this prefect
They turn their back on you

And if everyone would just join hands
I'll tell you something you would not believe
I see the signs, seen the writings on the wall
And baby I'm scared.

All good people will try and fight
But what they don't know will kill them

Turn around please

Come down, systems, collide
Say, are you alone?
Hide here, tonight
Starry skies shine the light
Go back, run fast
You've come to late, there's nothing left
Can you, hear us, go fast
Send out a warning

No one will answer, we try to obey
So will you lead us to the right direction?
We could be save by you

We've been misguided by a shady plan
It's the demise of the modern man
Tell everybody that you've seen firsthand
And nature, she'll take her course.

All good people will try and fight
But they don't know will kill us all

Turn around please

Come down, systems, collide
say, are you alone?
Hide here, tonight
Starry skies shine the light
Go back, run fast
You've come to late, there's nothing left
Can you, hear us, go fast
Send out a warning

    THIS CAM BITCH OR WHATEVER HER NAME IS CANNOT SING! She tries too hard to make her voice sound "in". Leisha hailey should sing at least a bit more when it comes to this duo...

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.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
