Vor lauter Licht, sah´ ich den Engel nicht,
der mir versprach - mein Gott sei tot
Meiner Einsamkeit, die so entstand zu zweit,
bin ich fortan allein´ger Herr

Ich sehe mehr als die Menscheit jemals sah,
ich steh für mehr als ich zuvor es jemals war
aber was du suchst, ist schon lang´ verflucht
siehst Du nicht das Licht?

Ich bin der Träumer und der Traum,
der Schlächter und das Lamm
Ich steh´ für mehr als ich zuvor es jemals war
Ich bin in allem - Alles in mir

Ich bin der Träumer und der Traum,
der Schlächter und das Lamm
Ich steh´ für mehr als ich zuvor es jemals war
Ich bin in allem - Alles in mir

Wenn die Erde bebt
Und Helden fallen
Kann es sein,
daß weisses sich schwarz färbt,
Regen zu Staub wird,
irgendwo ein Kind stirbt
Trotz allem in mir
allem in mir

Ich bin der Träumer und der Traum,
der Schlächter und das Lamm
Ich steh´ für mehr als ich zuvor es jemals war
Ich bin in allem - Alles in mir

War der Engel nur ein dunkler Traum?
Verliert der Himmel nun Zeit & Raum?
Versperrt die Sonne auch die Sicht dir,
ich weiß ich bin in allem - Alles in mir!

    (rough translation) "In front of the loud light, I did not see the angel it spoke to me - my God was dead my solitary time, it so emerged to [the] second, am I henceforth alone, Lord?

    I see more as a human than I ever saw I stand for more than I ever did before but what you look [for] is already long flattened do you not see the light?

    I am the dreamer and the dream, the butcher and the lamb I stand for more than I ever did before I am in everything - everything in me

    When the ground quakes and heroes fall can it be the white yet black color, rain changes to dust, somewhere a child dies in spite of everything in me everything in me

    Was the angel only a dark dream? Does the sky now loose time and room? the sun also blocks the visibilty for you, I know I am in everything - everything in me!"

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
