YOU ASK ME IF I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING
BUT I DON'T
LOOKING AT MY SMILING FRIEND
PUTTING UP A FRONT
LYING ALL THE TIME
I JUST CAN'T STOP
AM I GONNA SEE YOU
GET BACK ON TOP

A COOL LITTLE WHITE THING
IS IN YOUR HAND
A COOL LITTLE SILLY THING
I CAN'T UNDERSTAND

IT'S EVERYWHERE
IT'S EVEN IN YOUR KNEES
AND IT'S NO SHAME
IT HAPPENS TO A LOT OF US
AND YOU'RE NOT TO BLAME
THINGS JUST GOT TOO QUIET
AND YOU COULDN'T HIDE
YOU GOT AN OFFER
YOU CAUGHT THE RIDE

A COOL LITTLE WHITE THING
IS IN YOUR BLOOD
A COOL LITTLE SILLY THING
STARTS TO FLOOD
AND WHEN YOUR HEART IS NO LONGER IN CHARGE

YOU GO SOMEWHERE BY THE SEA
FIND A NEW PHILOSOPHY
WHERE THE WORLD COMES TO AN END
YOU'RE GONNA FIND ANOTHER FRIEND

DON'T YOU KNOW YOU'RE GONNA FIND A WAY
OUT OF HERE
YOU'RE GONNA DITCH THOSE FRIENDS
YOU MIGHT AS WELL
YOU'RE GONNA LOSE THAT RELIGION
THAT MAKES YOU PAY
THREE TIMES A DAY

YOU GO SOMEWHERE BY THE SEA
YOU FIND A NEW PHILOSOPHY
WHERE THE WORLD COMES TO AN END
YOU'RE GONNA FIND ANOTHER FRIEND

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

“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.

Punchline
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.
