Oye amigo ruiseñor,
Tú que te passas el dia cantando
Sé me fiel mensajero y véte volando,
Llévale esta melodía a la mujercon
Quien yo sueño
Sé que me esta esperando ahí,
A la orilla del río.
Dile que estoy prisonero,
Que en una cárcel me tienen escondido,
Con cadenas de acero entre muro y muro
Me tienen encerrado
De esta fortaleza no escapa mi un murmuro
Mi sola esperenza eres tú,
No pares el vuelo.

Oye buen mensajero llévale mi canto

Aunque me corten la lengua
Yo seguiré cantando
Aunque me corten las manos
Te seguiré adorando
Tu serás mi lengua,
Tu serás mis manos
Pase lo que pase
Yo seguiré cantando...

Llévale mi canto...

Oye amigo ruiseñor
Sé que tu eres amigo del viento
Sé mi fiel mensajero, no pares el vuelo
Que corra la noticia
Quieren apagar el sueño
Siento el soplo del verdugo,
Escapa, no te quedes conmigo.
Sólo por haber cantado,
Ay pajarito quién lo hubiera pensado
Solamente porque canto a los soles,
A los cielos y a tus ojos preciosos
Pero aunque maten a mi cuerpo
El alma mía seguirá cantado
Y un pájaro libre como el viento
Te llevará el canto mío.

Y si no vienes cantando así,
Cómo tú quieres que yo salga de aquí.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
