What's the matter what's the difference
You'll feel better if you lie
With the stars in your eyes

Honey, Honey where's my baby
She know better than to cry
With the stars in her eyes

There is no safe place to go
I should know the lame
And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show

What's the matter what's the difference
What's the question you'll feel better
If you lie with the stars in your eyes

There is no safe place to go
I should know the lame
And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show

Bury your heart in a hole
Bury your heart in a bury your heart in a
Bury your heart in a hole

    I think this is a hopeless song. It's about hiding your emotions and keeping it all inside. The title suggest this. Apathy, according to m-w.com, is a lack of emotion. And "Bury your heart in a hole" definately adds to that. So easy to relate to.

    My favorite Pumpkins song.

    Basically he's saying only the main character thinks only weak people show feelings. So this person here is bottling everything up. Someone asks the main character "what's the matter?" and she just responds with "what's the difference?"... basically over time it feels like people don't care, so we just keep stuff inside. We think that it makes us stronger, but it really doesn't.

    However, as I say this, I do bury my heart in a hole most of the time.

    This is a hopeless song, I agree with you, wolfperson1. But it's also very helpful in a strange way.

    this is a beautiful song (the Pumpkins had many of them).

    I agree with sirenlunaris. Although th esong is some what hopeless because things aren't being resolved, it also teaches us what not to do (espeically for things as important as emotions). We often learn what to do by seeing example of what we shouldn't do.

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.
