Chandelier

- Sia

Party girls don't get hurt

Can't feel anything, when will I learn

I push it down, push it down

I’m the one “for a good time call”

Phone's blowin' up***, ringin' my doorbell

I feel the love, feel the love

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

Throw 'em back, till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist

Like it doesn't exist

I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night*, feel my tears as they dry

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes

Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight

Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes

Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight

On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess

Gotta get out now, gotta run from this

Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 drink

Throw 'em back till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist

Like it doesn't exist

I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes

Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight

Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes

Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight

On for tonight

On for tonight

'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight

Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight

On for tonight

On for tonight

'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight

'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight

Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight

On for tonight

On for tonight

When Sia says that her "Phone is blowing up" she means that there is a lot of messages coming through all at one point in time.

When Sia says that she "wants to fly like a bird through the night" she is saying that she wants to lose all of her fears and to not worry about what is going to follow the next morning.

Heathens

Twenty-one Pilots

All my friends are heathens** take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people

Who have rooms of people that they loved one day

Docked away

Just because we check the guns at the door

Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades****

You're lovin' on the psychopath sitting next to you

You're lovin' on the murderer sitting next to you

You'll think, how'd I get here, sitting next to you?

But after all I've said, please don't forget

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

We don't deal with outsiders very well

They say newcomers have a certain smell

Yeah, I trust issues, not to mention

They say they can smell your intentions*****

You're lovin' on the freakshow sitting next to you

You'll have some weird people sitting next to you

You'll think "how did I get here, sitting next to you?"

But after all I've said, please don't forget

(Watch it, watch it)

(Watch it)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are like heathens, take it slow

(Watch it)

Wait for them to ask you who you know

(Watch it)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

(Watch it)

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why'd you come, you knew you should have stayed

I tried to warn you just to stay away

And now they're outside ready to bust

It looks like you might be one of us

When they say that "all my friends are heathens" they are saying that all of the friends are very different and rebellious.

"Our brains will change from hand grenades" means that even though they are all locked up in jail their brains will not stop being rebellious and criminal and will always be trying to find a way to create chaos.

Popular

Wicked

Whenever I see someone less fortunate than I,

And let's face it, who isn't less fortunate than I?

My tender heart tends to start to bleed.****

And when someone needs a makeover,

I simply have to take over!

I know, I know exactly what they need!

And even in your case,

Though it's the toughest case I've yet to face,

Don't worry, I'm determined to succeed!

Follow my lead,

And yes indeed, you will be

Popular!

You're gonna be popular!

I'll teach you the proper poise,

When you talk to boys,

Little ways to flirt and flounce,

Ooh!

I'll show you what shoes to wear!

How to fix your hair!

Everything that really counts to be...

Popular!

I'll help you be popular!

You'll hang with the right cohorts,

You'll be good at sports,

Know the slang you've got to know.

So let's start,

'Cause you've got an awfully long way to go!

Don't be offended by my frank analysis,

Think of it as personality dialysis,

Now that I've chosen to become a

Pal, a sister and advisor,

There's nobody wiser!

Not when it comes to

Popular!

I know about popular.

And with an assist from me,

To be who you'll be,

Instead of dreary who you were

Well, are.

There's nothing that can stop you,

From becoming popu-ler... lar

La la, la la!

We're gonna make you pop-you-lar!

When I see depressing creatures,

With unprepossessing features,

I remind them on their own behalf

To - think - of

Celebrated heads of state,

Or specially great communicators!

Did they have brains or knowledge?

Don't make me laugh!

They were popular!

Please!

It's all about popular.

It's not about aptitude,

It's the way you're viewed,

So it's very shrewd to be,

Very very popular

Like me!

Why, Miss Elphaba, look at you. You're beautiful!

I, I have to go

You're welcome

And though you protest,

Your disinterest,

I know clandestinely,

You're gonna grin and bear it!

Your new found popularity!

Aah!

La la, la la!

You'll be popular!

Just not quite as popular as me!

When the character says that "her tender heart tends to start to bleed" she means that when she sees a girl that she thinks is not the best looking, she feels really bad for her.

PROCRASTINATION

By: Bailey Weber

Procrastination is like a thunderstorm cloud hanging over your head*

Sharp lightning strikes remind you of the approaching deadline***

The crash of the thunder warns you what your grade will do if you do not complete the assignment***

Procrastinating is opening your umbrella after the rain starts**

The nerve wracking sound of hail on the windows is like the teacher telling you to hand in the assignment that you forgot to do*

The drip drip of the water in the gutter replicates the sound of the sweat on your forehead trying to quickly finish the paper******

The wind in the wind chimes is the late bell ringing in your ears**

Wet socks clinging to your cold feet make you feel even worse about having to tell your mom that you procrastinated yet another assignment

The sound of your dog whinging is something you want to do very badly at the moment

The beautiful rainbow mirrors the feeling you feel inside when you find out it was just an extra credit paper***
