Reviews about Straylight Run songs

my fav. song | Reviewer: Lindsey
    ------ About the song Hands In The Sky (Big Shot) performed by Straylight Run

i'm almost positive this is about the holocaust..
Tearing out all these open pages-burning of jewish books
Women and kids of all ages-separated them and they were forced in a different area
Millions of men with blank faces-solidures
Italicised lies, headlines, bold type-in the news

Terrified, blind, and wait to die-thats what they had to do
I wonder when they'll come get me-scared to get caught

And we'll tell you when they're hungry again-natzi-ism
And we'll tell you when they're hungry again-or the starving people
loud man-a nazi officer
throw your hands up or your gonna die-hitler symbol
give it up-forced to give up belongings...


just my thought


great song | Reviewer: just someone you used to know
    ------ About the song Mistakes We Knew We Were Making performed by Straylight Run

words cannot describe the beauty of this song. it speaks to the unknown depths of my soul. every time i hear it, i think of a friend of mine who died in a car crash. maybe one day we'll both "wake up and laugh at how stupid we used to be"

    ------ About the song Sympathy For The Martyr performed by Straylight Run

I think that this is someone being as brutally honest as they can. This is him, spilling his self out onto a sheet of paper. Ever hear of a mind map? this is his.
Sounds a bit like mine.
this song has helped me put alot of things into perspective.


Meaning? | Reviewer: Sidd Skeltonn
    ------ About the song Hands In The Sky (Big Shot) performed by Straylight Run

Can anyone give their idea on what the song is about?

Big shot screaming, "Put your hands in the sky,"
He says, "Give it up boy, give it up or your gonna die," Especially on that part.

I have an idea of the meaning behind it but I just want to get others opinions.

    ------ About the song Sympathy For The Martyr performed by Straylight Run

I think this song is honest, but still cute. Almost like the lyricist is just tired of the particular person, but still loves them. In some weird, quirky way, it's adorable. The single & band are pretty stellar too <3
