"Hayling" as written by Jonathan Nowell, Daniel Ormondroyd, Jon Collyer and Hafdis Huld....
Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

Don't think about all those things you fear
Just be glad to be here

    General Commentjust leave it all behind, your fears and regrets... everything. Enjoy yourself wherever you may be, whatever situation you're in.

    My InterpretationThis song is actually scary to me and sends chills down my spine, because it sounds like an alien abduction. The lyrics could be construed as somebody trying to sedate and control you, or alternatively reassuring you that they come in peace and won't hurt you. The way the melody gets more elaborate as the song continues you get a melancholic feel, maybe its a war of the worlds type deal, anyway there's despair and a "there's nothing that can be done, mine-as-well sit back and watch it happen" feel there. Does honestly nobody else get a spacy, mechanical vibe?

    General CommentThis song defines electronica. The smooth eclectic voice of Hafdis Huld will utterly sedate you. Hit play and say goodnight.

    General CommentI listen to this song whenever I feel bad, or get jealous. I tend to get very jealous, even when I really shouldn't. This song just reminds me to not be jealous, and to just be glad to be with her.

    General CommentI believe that this song is about "Trips" like on acid and shrooms..... when tripping if you think to hard you will freak your self out if you just enjoy it the trip is great

    General CommentTo me this really hits home about the idea that no matter how bad things get or no matter how bad you'd want to just die- remember how unique life is. and that you shouldn't take life for granted, just be glad you get to ride life.

    General CommentImo, this song simply is saying to quit stressing on things you fear and don't wanna do and be glad to be here and be positive. In other words don't dwell on the things you fear and be grateful for your life and don't take things for granted because some people might not have it as good as you may.

    ⁠ Since this song is trance it may also be referring to ecstacy. With saying that ecstacy gives you a feeling of well-being (euphoria) and greatly decreases anxiety (fear).

    General CommentKeeping in mind the rather melancholic almost dark feel of the chords and the music during the intro which then remains melancholic but simultaneously has a more soothing feel especially during the moments the lyrics repeat:

    Don't think about all those things you fear.
    Just be glad to be here.

    It says to not think about about all the things you fear, that are negative, all your worries, your problems, and then either to literally just be here as in exist or be here as in this place / situation.

    (It also reminds me of a parallel to my own life which is when I have many legit fears and stress inducers and post traumatic stress disorder and especially when I do ketamine or smoke heroin and everything is just ok for that time; the fears are gone for the moment; I feel this, personal, interpretation also fits the dark melancholic sound of a major part of the track while the music is more soothing when the lyrics are heard.)
