You watch me at the window from your place on the couch
You watch me pretendnig that I am really looking out
You say: "Come here, I can't see you in this light"
But I'm much safer beside the moon tonight

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through

Don't come too close or you'll see my edge is rough
And you'll make me wonder if I will be enough
You'll make me worry that somehow you will see
That there is always something small and trembling in me

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through

No place to hide in your single bed
No look of mine that you haven't read
I've always been an easy read
Just once I want to be a mystery
So though you tell me it will be alright
I'm much safer beside the moon tonight

When I am a silhouette
I have no fear, I can love you from here
When I am a silhouette
I can give myself to you, and you never see through
Never through

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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

Dreamwalker
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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
