In secret rooms with whispered words they spoke of changes
Anew world order free of fault to span the ages
A perfect plan in a perfect world the perfect fantasy
And I know that next that it's me
An unfinished fight is a thief in the night
That returns to tear out your heart
Ashes to ashes dust to dust enemy armor left to rust

One strike is all that it takes
One strike an enemy makes
One strike bringer of changes suffer the pain cause it's war

An upper echelon power grip money's talking
In the streets it has turned its back a nightmare stalking
The scales of justice work for some and let the rest go free
As the blood runs through your hands I know that next it's me

One strike is all that it takes
One strike an enemy makes
One strike bringer of changes suffer the pain cause it's war

In churches built for worship the altars are empty
To finance a minority rule the offerings are plenty
A perfect plan in a perfect world perfect hipocrisy
And I know next that it's me

One strike is all that it takes
One strike an enemy makes
One strike bringer of changes suffer the pain cause it's war

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
