Bring to me all of my arrows Bring to me my crossbow too I fear we might need them both Before the night is through
Once a world of glittering hope This world is not the world we knew The only light left to shine Is between me and you
On our own In a World of Stone We are not alone
I had once believed in angels They were everywhere I looked A gentle hand guiding me To give more than I took
But I have died a thousand times Watching all these angels fall Their lonely eyes haunt me still We will avenge them all
Bring me mead and bring me ale To help us face this fight again Good fortune will shine down on us Together we will win
And they will never break our spirit We will never turn and run And we will rise stronger still When we stand as one!

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
