well, razor blades and a bottle of pills, won't make me change the way that i feel, when life gave up on me, i just gave up on life, and said one, two, one two three four, it spills over your lips and wraps around me, like a gift in fear of temporary placement, on the table we made, with the letters we wrote, you are everything, so hold on to me, cause i
hold on to you, i won't learn from my mistakes this time, making the same ones in different years, there's no way out, no way out, no way out, no way out, no way out, no way out, no way out, no way out, if i could think of something better than this to say, i'd tell you a story about my princess, or a fairy tale about happiness that lasts, but your beauty was never make believe, this is not rock and roll, someone please help me, every time i said it, i felt it, every time i didn't say it, i still felt it, you are a seal i place on my chest and arm, i'd give you my circle if you'd take it from me and make a promise to me, you still have my promise if i fade away..., so place me like a seal on your chest and arm, you love to lie to me, i live to love your lies, i live to love you still, i love to live to die

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
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
