"No One Is Lost" as written by and Amy Millan Evan Cranley....
Another life, another weekend
Another lonely roller looking for a friend
A blood eye kin, an empty vessel
He's probably crazy but he knows it's gonna end
Look at your face, look in the mirror
You see your eye light and you close your eyes
Look at the lights, look at the city
Who's gonna be here when everybody dies
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Until then, that will listen
No one is lost
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies
Until then, that will listen
No one is lost

Another life, another weekend
Another message checker looking for a friend
You got a pulse, you got a problem
We know the real you so why do you pretend?
The velvet rose, the self ???
Because I shiver in the high heel shoes
But what's inside, I feel it winning
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Until then, that will listen
No one is lost
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Put your hands up if you know you're gonna lose
Until then, that will listen
No one is lost
No one is lost
No one is lost

Back to the crib, back to the castle
The bottle's empty and my bed's unmade
You have the lips, you have a lover
You're being brave but we know that you're afraid
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid
Put your hands up, put your hands up
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid, yeah
Until then, that will listen
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid
No one is lost
No one is lost
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid
Put your hands up, put your hands up
Put your hands up if you ever feel afraid, yeah
Until then, that will listen
No one is lost
No one is lost
No one is lost
No one is lost

    My InterpretationHaving been in this situation myself, I feel like it's a lot of the club/bar crawling to find a meaningful connection with someone. And failing. Females dolling themselves up and "shiver in the high heels".

    "Another life, another weekend" of going out. The "lights", the "city", it's all incredibly dazzling - especially when drunk. We're somewhere else when we're drunk, like "an empty vessel".

    But there's the peppy, upbeat, optimistic layer - sometimes it's disheartening, especially "another weekend". We're afraid, and to hide that we're putting on this bravado and swagger because there's a chance of getting laid.

    But there's still hope out there. And no one is lost.

    My InterpretationThis song opens with a french spoken word verse:

    Au lendemain de fête
    Les consequences vécu
    Répète et répète jusqu'au au sommeil
    Personne ne reste
    Personne ne reste
    Personne ne reste

    Which google tells me means:

    The day after the party
    The consequences
    Repeats and repeats until sleep
    No one remains
    No one remains
    No one remains

    This sets the scene foe some sort of Sisyphean tale of party life. Which seems devoid of meaning. The music begins.

    It's sounds are taken from club music. Wide electric "strings" have soft distorted attacks that begin to sharpen as a synth plays out a melody which is joined by a drum machine and a picked electric guitar. These elements come together to form an upbeat club feel with where the chorus is repeated over techno style buildups. We are asked to put our hands up like an audience at an EDM show, but instead of exalting in the false immortality of youth we are asked to rejoice in the steady continuation towards death:

    Put your hands up 'cause everybody dies.

    The verses set the scene of club entrances and loneliness. Of waiting for some sort of absolution which we presumably get from the chorus.

    In this way the fabricated moments of dance club joy are re-purposed to help assuage the fear of death. It is both critical of the feeling of community in the club (is it meaningless?) and yet sympathetic to this party (we are encouraged to participate). Later choruses expand this to the feeling of loss and the fear or loss. Amy tells us than until the moment we die / lose we are still alive and we can still win. Interestingly, the last chorus asks us to participate if we ever feel afraid which recognizes the emotional reaction we have to death and loss, but by this point we are already dancing too much to care about these things.
