Lost infidelity
We've never said a word
So black, and white you see
It's all the lies we've heard

In my mind nothing makes sense
I'm nothing you can't have
Cracked up to disagree
It's all we've ever had

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one

Your secret smile so quaint
In memories foretold
Laughing so viciously
Your conscience has been sold

In my face there's no more joy
I'm all that I should be, be, be
Cracked infidelity
That's all you are too me

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Be the one
Be the one
Be the one
Oh

We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one

    Is this like, the best song EVER, or is it just me?

    Seems to me to be about that stage in a relationship, when it is just about to fall apart. 'They' haven't talked in a while, and all communication / trust / love as disintegrated. She seems to be just waiting for the end to come.

    hmm.. i see it as the description of an impossible relationship. it isn't approved by the outside world, and the you-person is indoctrinated ('so black and white you see, it's all the lies you've heard', 'you're conscience has been sold'). because skin is a lesbian, i suppose it'a a lesbian relationship she's talking about. if you read it this way, it makes sense, doesn't it?

    the i-character and you-character are lesbian, and can't have a relationship because it isn't although they

    MapleLeaf, I think you're right half the way, but isn't it more like she offers herself to the other girl who doesn't want her. Perhaps because she's raised to be straight?

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."

Blue
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.
