comment What's the meaning of the expression “bed burning” or “bed on fire”?
Interpretation of song lyrics is off-topic for this site, but if you consider the entire lyric "How can we sleep while our beds are burning?" I think it makes sense as "How can you close your eyes and pretend that nothing is happening, when in fact the situation is dire?"

comment How to express something given to a customer for “free in a non-immoral, non-sexual, non-promoting context”?
I don't think "rebate" would be considered an indecent proposal, but it has a pretty specific meaning. Can you give a specific description of the context?

comment What's a term for pure text data (non-image non-video non-audio)?
I would say "real data." It will make it sound like the data is important and must be impressive, and they won't want to ask what fake data is.

@Will Nor does it address Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. That doesn't mean it is not a duplicate.

comment co-living and co-evolving
Hi @Aussay! I'm not sure I understand what your question is. Are you asking for a definition, or do you want help re-phrasing you sentence, or are you wondering whether such a word exists?
