Transcendentalism is very interesting actually.

John Lennon, Pink Floyd, both have traces of it in several different songs, 

Also this. 

 


The song has traces of it, speaking of taking chances, self change, self revelation, growing as an individual, which is a key part of transcendentalism, being your own, being independent. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

This song also highlights independence and individualism, which are key to transcendentalism.

be careful what you pretend to be

I remember back in high school we had a similar project. Our group used sublime's april 29th and its relation to thoreau's civil disobedience. TBH though just about every every song has its own meaning and interpretation to its listeners so you can run it with just about anything.
