Send me forwards-say my feelings
But all the signals-send me reeling
Jigsaw Feeling

One day I'm feeling total
The next I'm split in two
My eyes are doing somersaults
Staring at my shoe

My brain is out of my hand
There's nothing to prevent
The impulse is quite meaningless
In a cerebral non-event


Five fingers do my walking
Ten toes unravel 'Knots'
Amorphous jigsaw pieces
Falling into slots


So I just sit in reverie
Getting on my nerves
The intangible bonds that keep me
Sitting on the verge...

Of a breakdown
Of a reaction
Of a result
(defeat me...)..Complete me...maybe...defeat me
(Jigsaw feeling)

    It seems to me that this song is about some kind of manic-depression or something. I heard siouxsie saying that she couldn't and still can't fight against depression cicles, as a lot of people. This is not about the real disorder but maybe about how you can feel bored sometimes, pointless and that the feeling is neverending, going in circles again and again, pressing your brain, whithout control. A jigsaw feeling. And this is amazing about Siouxsie. Most of the people i know think that she must be depressed singing all of those dark songs, but she's not... as far as i know!

    Song Meaning

    SIOUXSIE: It's when your limbs won't do what your brain wants them to. You're so confused that you can't co-ordinate your limbs to do something positive, and you just twist yourself in knots." Source: Melody Maker 21/10/78

    Basically it is about matter beating mind, feeling forced into acting in a certain way or commit an action that your mind is dead set against.

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.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.
