Starbucks Blues

(Tom Barlow)

Starbucks Blues is a snarky turn about the vapid lives of the young and rich as demonstrated by their willingness to spend more money on coffee drinks than most people do on their rent and car payments.

The Starbucks' line’s so slow today My Benz ran out of gas. My sister told her ballet coach That he could kiss her ass. PBS is back to begging Norm’s down on his knees. There’s Laphroaig in the liquor case But I can’t find the keys. Chorus: I’ve got the jittery the skittery The tapping foot, the shaking knee I’m so awake I might explode A double caffeine overload It’s one to a corner, six to a block One at six, nine, twelve o’clock Another cup what did I do? I’ve got the Starbuck blues. Yale’s got a quota rule. The SAT’s a fucking joke. We spent graduation night Cruising for a little smoke. Once I met a girl who wasn’t Blond, enhanced and thin. The other girls tore her up Like she was Gunga Din. Chorus Now Liza’s in the stock exchange And Steve’s designing lingerie. Michelle has opened her own spa And produced her mother’s play. I swim laps in my pool alone.

It's really quite tempting to play fast and loose with people's hearts. However, playing God with their emotions, especially with regard to the concept of love, has uncanny ways of backfiring on the player. Theselyrics are about a player who did just that and now regrets his actions, wishing he could turn back the hands of time.

Die Fesseln der Freiheit

By Micha Khalil

Der Text dreht sich um das Thema Freiheit. Kann auch als ein polititsches Statement verstanden werden. Es gibt politische Parteien zum Beispiel die Freiheit versprechen aber die Menschen nur ein und beschränken. Der Text ist in den meisten Zeilen auf einen dreiviertel takt zu sprechen.

By Ari Wilde

This song is about people who try constantly to bring you down, critizing you and being mean to you all the time, and how you want to never talk to them again

By Camilla Rose

This song is about how you can feel if you suffer from anxiety and/or depression. You feel like your life isn't worth living and you're past the point of caring. The only thing you know for certain is that you don't want to "shake it off" and behave like you're expected to, only because it's the normal way of fitting in. You can feel metaphorically or physically forced to be scared and in pain and cry for help.

This earth is far too beautiful

By Kate Bennett

Revering earth and mother nature. A mystical beautiful female figure. A love letter to nature and to a romantic partner. How two people see the beauty in the earth through each other's eyes and how love helps us see the magic in the world.
