you're riot gear at the des moines zoo
you're a three course meal when you know you can't chew
like an empty envelope at the bank deposit
like a three-piece prada suit hanging in my closet

you're wasted
wasted on me
you're wasted
wasted, wasted
on me

you're a bad complexion on a movie star
you're a free beer at a real shitty bar
and you're way too drunk on the wine you didn't bring
but you're my favorite thing, you're my favorite thing

but you're wasted
wasted on me
you're wasted
wasted, wasted
on me

and you say all i need is love
and you say
you say all i need is love
you say all i need is love
but your words are just
wasted

you're cinderella at the wrong fuckin' ball
you're the very best friend that i never ever call
you're the last one out of a house you didn't build
and like a good actor in a soft porn film

you're just wasted
wasted on me

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,

Blue
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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
