Sit still, take a trip into my eyes
You're unstable still to my surprise
Be honest but never catch my lies
Don't say you're the one who always tries

And don't say...
Really are you in this
'cause I can feel you pulling away
Not to mention all the things you'd never say

Now my visions gone to hell
I keep it in a box... with my memories
Don't bother with me... I can't take it
I'll be on the road with less a load
You're feeling used..... a little bit confused

Don't say...
Really are you in this
'cause I can feel you pulling away
Not to mention all the things you'd never say
So really are you in this
'cause I can feel you pulling away
Not to mention all the things you'd never say
The only thing that you really should say

More than a little bit confused about this 'n that
Can I have back all the things we lose
I wish it were that simple, yeah I really do
I'll be on the road with less a load
You're feeling used again

    It's sad that almost this entire album is about relationships not working out and breaking up... yet I love the CD forwards and back.

    I think he's saying that you're the one that's not pulling your weight in the relationship. You're not holding up, and don't try to blame it on me.

    i think the he's saying that you don't do anything for me, but i still care about you. it seems like the other person doesn't seem to care about you like you care about them. he's feeling used and unloved

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.

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.
