There he goes
Everybody's watchin'
Everybody knows
Somethin's goin' on
It certainly shows
When he's got a secret for you.

It's there when he walks
It's there when he smiles
He kisses your cheek
And disappears for a while
Nothin' in the world's
Gonna cramp his style
If only he could keep it from you.

Oh I, don't believe that
You haven't seen by now (seen by now)
Don't look at me
'Cause I'll never tell.

Don't ya ever wonder
Why the phone always rings (phone always rings)
Every evening (every evening)
Doesn't it upset you
When you call his name
And he doesn't pay attention to you.

Oh I, don't believe that
You haven't seen by now (seen by now)
Don't look at me
'Cause I'll never tell.

Don't know the places he goes
Don't know the people he knows
Don't you understand
It's out of your hands.

Oh I, don't believe that
You haven't seen by now (seen by now)
Don't look at me
'Cause I'll never tell.

    My Interpretation

    The narrator is warning a woman that her man is cheating on her. To me, it seems there's a hint that the narrator IS the other woman, or at least knows her: "Don't look at me, 'cause I'll never tell."

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.
