Cuando barilas,
Cuando barilas,

Pa'lante, pa'trás tu mueves las caderas,
Con el compás, tu mueves las caderas,
Y hasta que la música se muera,
Mamayé, Mamayé, Mamayé como bailas.

Cuando me besas,
Cuando me besas,
Tu boca junto a mi boca,
Tu mano roza mi mano,
Tus labios son centellas,
Tus ojos son candellas,

Pa'lante, pa'trás...

Espero este momento todo el día entero,
Bailar contigo es todo lo que quidro,
Sin tí soy como un hombre sin cerebro,
¡Guáu, guáu! Soy como un perro sin su dueño,
Cuando bailas conmigo, olvido todo el mundo,
Te miro y te admiro y me tiro cara al suelo,
Yo lo que quiero es estar junto a tu cuerpo,
Bailando con el ritmo de este son tremendo.

Cuando Mamayé se desnuda,
Cuando Mamayé toca mi piel,
Cuando sus manos sobre mi cuerpo,
Cuando su cielo junta mi cielo.

Pa'lante, pa'tras...

Soy como una bomba a punto de estellar,
¡Boom! Terremoto, no lo puedo controlar,
Un volcán que nada lo puede apagar,
Aunque le heches toda el agua del mar,
Ardiendo por dentro, me consumo poco a poco,
Cuando bailas conmigo me vuelvo medio loco,
Cuando me tocas siento escalofrío,
Cuando me besas mis pies no tocan el suelo

Ay mamita mía, no me dejes así...

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.

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.

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
