eleven eleven said the clock as i pulled it around
the foreign days and understanding
a way out would be nice,
i'll have your good advice
went up the block
making the scream 12 after
some days the walls look greener
(cause they can fetch a dime)
hung, unsafe for days you can't be weaker waiting
and even if bugs turn into people who ask
'are you all right?'
say yes and smile
it's now the outcome of every day,
weaker days await.

even if the bugs turn to people who ask
'are you all right?
just say yes and smile
you've found the outcome of every day
weaker days await

some days the wall look greener
(cause they can fetch a dime)
hung, unsafe for days you can't be weaker waiting
even if the bugs turn to people who ask
'are you all right?'
just say yes and smile
you've found the outcome of every day
weaker days await

    Heard this song a few times, and to tell you the truth, it is so darn hard to hear what they say most of the time! So, the whole question marks, and whatnot are understandable. Darn the artists that try to throw us off! Arg! I don't know where you can get this, they once played it at a show...

    I think it's "the outcome of every day bleeds your days away." Or maybe I'm completely wrong? Either way this song is terriffic, it just sucks that it's a demo, since that typically means a very NOT high quality recording.

    This song had 2 names, 11:11 and Weak Week. This is what I have translated so far,

    "eleven eleven set the clock at the pool fade away from foreign days and understanding a way out would be nice, ill have your good advice with up the block taking the train 12 after some days the walls look greener ? ? ? ? [2 people singing] Fuckin sicker days can seem weaker WAITING and even if bugs turn into people to ask if youre all right say yes and smile now the outcome of everyday, weaker days await even if the bugs turn to people to ask are you all right say yes and smile now the outcome of everyday weaker days await. some days the walls look greener God, ??? [2 people again] fuckin sicker days can seem weaker, WAITING even if the bugs turn to people to ask if youre all right say yes and smile now the outcome of everyday weaker days await."

    I can't make out what they say when i think it's Matt and Dan singing, but il keep plugging away at it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

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.
