It was the summer Of nineteen sixty-four
It was the year For the rocker-and-surfie war
His woman turned Into a freaked-out surfie girl
And no longer his hotrod was The best, the fastest, the coolest, the baddest in
the world

So he got the boys down from the milk bar
They rumbled down the road real fast theyre gonna get far
Down to Manly beach but it wouldnt last
Those surfies could not forget...Forget the past

No sandcastles and no kids Were left around
They’d all gone home Locked up safe and sound
Wait till the surfies Til they stomp back
The rumble’s on And now its all out, its all out, its all out attack

And now he’s here Here in 1999
Its gone full-circle Around a few times
He’s still got his bike He’s still a rocker
But he’s now too A malibu a malibu a malibu motherfucker

Now so if you understand Don’t be a shocker
Know rocker is surfie And surfie is rocker
Wreck to the twang Stomp to the sound
Now lets get down to it And kick it, kick it, kick it all around

Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."

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.
