Time won't last
And I can't believe you
62 degrees
Everything is blue
Silhouette of trees
And I see is you

Before I
(Before I)
Give into your eyes
(See your eyes)
I want you to know
That I can be so bored

I blame you
For all the wrong things I say
(I blame you)
(For all the wrong things I say)

Before you go
6:30 PM
Everything is blue
(I'm never gonna have to)
Stuck inside this dream
And all I see is you

Before I
(Before I)
Give into the sky
(See your eyes)
I want you to know
That I can be so bored
That I can be so bored

Turn it off!
Turn it on again
Turn it off!
Turn me on again
Turn it off!
So now I will pretend

Time won't last
(Turn it off)
And I can't believe you

You've got me in a tough situation
Sorry if this sounds stupid
I'm losing my mind
Through this repetition
Stop me before I lose you too

Leave it to me to be cynical
Jaded and boring
Rhetorical
This dry humor that keeps me here each day
Is all that I have

Leave it to me to be cynical
(Before I)
Jaded and boring
(Give into your eyes)
Rhetorical
(See your eyes)
This dry humor that keeps me here each day
(I want you to know)
Is all that I have
(That I can be so bored)

Leave it to me to be cynical
Jaded and boring
Rhetorical
This dry humor that keeps me here each day
Is all that I have
To keep you away

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head &gt; Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
