No way to settle when you're sleeping with the devil
And you know they're gonna figure you out
They're gonna blow you cover it's one way or another
Bet you know just what I'm talking about
You've got nothing up your sleeve now
Ain't got no miracle card
You keep on running but the end is coming
And you know it's gonna batter you hard

You're on the way to the bargain bin now
Going nowhere fast heading nowhere at all

Used up loose ends hang by a thread
Yesterday's news and they're not even read
You'll land a truckload of nothin´ at all

You're in the eye but the storm is gonna die
Well I don't think you're covered up for the ride
You think you've made it but you're just backdated
And you're quickly running out of style
Well I'll see you on the way down
If I remember your name
You start shaking 'cause you can't stop faking
You were never really cut for the game

Time's up and you've lost the flavor
They're done chewing now they'll spit you out

Used up loose ends hang by a thread
Yesterday's news and they're not even read
You'll land a truckload of nothin´ at all

You're on the way to the bargain bin now
Going nowhere fast heading nowhere at all

Used up loose ends hang by a thread
Yesterday's news and they're not even read
You'll land a truckload of nothin´ at all
Used up loose ends hang by a thread
Yesterday's news just as good as dead
You'll land a truckload of nothin´ at all

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.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
