"Eros" as written by Sameer Gadhia, Jacob John Tilley, Eric Matthew Cannata, Payam Reza Doostzadeh, Francois Paul Comtois and Justin Meldal-johnsen....
Why won't you call me?
Just give me your mouth
Won't you be straight with me
I can be older
Just give me the chance
I will win it all

Can you control the Sienna
To take her look

Relax your lips
Long blonde hair
I don't know if
You're even there
(Put out the fire)
I never let go
(Put out the fire)
I let the flames grow

Don't call it quits
Cold hard stare
I won't go if
You're standing there
(Put out the fire)
I never let go
(Put out the fire)
I let the flames

I'm really sorry
But I will win unintentionally
You can be sober
ButI want to dance
And I'm not dancing alone

Can you control the Sienna
Would you patrol its yellow lights

Relax your lips
Long blonde hair
I don't know if
You're even there
(Put out the fire)
I never let go
(Put out the fire)
I let the flames grow

Don't call it quits
Cold hard stare
I won't go if
You're standing there
(Put out the fire)
I never let go
(Put out the fire)
I let the flames

Nobody waits
Nobody calls anymore
Talking is dead with these fey conversations
Tired nations
Nobody cares
Too many thoughts at the door
It's all in your head
'Cause these days I'm awakened
I've been shaken
Here I am
Here I am
I been played
Here I am
(Let go)

    My InterpretationIt's about, well, I would say a creative episode, or being just outside of one, but that doesn't really describe the effect it has on the larger reality of the person experiencing it.

    The lyrics contain an argument between logic and reason, and the anxiety about what could happen next, and the overwhelming desire to leave it all behind because those things make the world such a crap place to live. The person singing almost gets there, bursts forward with, "Here I am!", then falls back to common reality, then pushes forward again and it goes on like that.

    Just before the end he outlines the pointless souless contact he has with the physical world: the internet "tired nations, fake conversations" and cynical stuff that comes through his door as junk mail, bills and advertising on tv and media, "nobody cares, too many thoughts at the door".

    The part that isn't obvious is how an experience like this twists what a person sees and thinks into something that both exists and doesn't. It makes life an attractive, potentially dangerous fantasy that is too real to not be real, and sometimes that can cause some really regretful and embarassing situations in hindsight.
