Taking the dream how we ran
In the rage of another plan
Heading for the mountain wall
Where it all began to fall
When we heard the wind call

Take your homes in the sun
There ain't any need to run
You've been here you've been there
You've been everywhere
And the time has come to really care

Through our families we had eyes to see
What could really be
We were making plans in the
Promise land
Far away from the shining sea

For some it wasn't easy
Living in an old dream
There's so many rocks in the stream
Do you know what I mean

We are living in a time that is ours to share
Catch up don't you stray too far behind
For the time has come for us to really care
Would you trade me your dream for mine

Taking the dream how we ran
In the rage of another plan
Heading for the mountain wall
Where it all began to fall
When we heard the wind call

Take your homes in the sun
There ain't any need to run
You've been here you've been there
You've been everywhere
And the time has come to really care

And the time has come to really care

Catch up don't you stray too far behind
Tell me now, would you trade me your dream for mine?

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.

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.

Amazing
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.
