Lightning flashes across the sky
The hands of time keep falling like the pouring rain
Soft voice call my name; I've seen this place before
This whole thing is mad and still I can see
That he awaits for me

As the knife cuts to the vein
Am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
Scars will fade but never die

Prisoner waiting out my time
Looking back through years gone by
My mind is always wondering what can I do
To seal a different fate,
Can I undo the things I've done?
I lie on the ground without making a sound
And cry for my life
Again

As the knife cuts to the vein
Am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
Scars will fade but never die

Staring down at me
Through my eyes I can see
Al the terror and pain still live on
I can't leave
Silver strand is pulling me back to mortality

As the knife cuts to the vein
Am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
Scars will fade but never die

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
