One, two, what a life, yeah, yeah, yeah
Goodness to the right of me (that's that hip-hop shit)
Even to the left of me (one two, uh)
Yo-yo, yo-yo, yo-yo-yo-yo-yo, yo-yo-yo

Check my style out (out)
Life situations are the ones I speak about (what?)
It seems cats nowadays be gettin' introduced to courage
Don't get discouraged 'cause my words will threw her like flourish
We got the bounty (bounty)
We from the Queens county (county)
Overlookin' things like a Rushmore Mounty
And got no other choice except to get a little love (true)
We rise above
The beat be fittin' like a glove
The pain in my heart is getting dosed by joy (what?)
We have no other boy but to bring the B-boy (uh, uh, uh)
There's nothin' on this earth that can instill fear
The locomotive, puttin' my thing in gear (what?)
I only have the fear of God and that's aqua
You need binocu'
Your trap is blazing like blanca
I got the lethal, you couldn't put a match to it (to it)
Let me know, yo, or we could do it like Stuart
Mind over matter (uh), action is needed (true)
When the big one not to be superseded
Responsibility is somethin' I can't deny (uh)
The illegal means is the nonsense reply
Most cats who scramble do so because they want to (to)
Been known to kick rhymes in the past on impromptu
My willy's hot like two links in the skillet (uh)
A room filled with speakers one stage, watch me kill it (uh, uh)
Knowledge should be taught from the cradle to the grave (uh)
Rhymin' opposition get it twist like Super Dave (word)
You be looking bugged out like Uncle Jesse
Don't make the scene messy
'Cause it'll jump, that's word to Aunt Betsy
Profound sentences of pure lyric gems (gems)
Some of my friends be likin' people with stems
Folks be on the chase for this cheddar
Thinkin' it makes your life better
But it can make you ass out (huh)
And when I'm at a show, chicks never pass out (uh, uh, what?)
We got the joint to make the whole mass shout out
A Tribe Called Quest make the party go down (uh)
Plus we bring positive vibes to fill up all your crowns
Lyrics comes to cats like a hot and cold flash (mm)
So could come with ease, therefore, it's in a smash (smash)
Held the fort down like the Justice League hall of super friends (what?)
But in the world turn of turmoil, spins
Brothers walk the street with the ill pace face
City life breeds contempt for each race (race)
All praises due to Allah and I should say it
It' the Abstract motivator making things clear (making things clear)
Puttin' things in perspective to rock (rock)
And roll, 'cause you know this kid has got wild soul (got wild soul)
Americana, Ms. Drama like starved out piranha
Cold like ice, jet-hot like a sauna
It's the haves versus the the haves not
And guess who's arrived in the hood
Exposing all wrongs, it's all good
Ayo, word up, hip-hop is live like the wire (what?)
Let's get a little bit before the whole joint expire
I got to stress it again, this here is for my kin
And all my babies children of the worlds, no maybes (maybes)
So, yo, we gotta to move through and push through (organize, son)
Because we got to make it happen, keep it true blue (gotta organize ish like that)

So much confusion goin' on (so much confusion goin' on)
(Gotta organize ish, organize ish)
Inside all mine (inside all mine)
So much confusion goin' on (same old egg, same old egg, same old egg)
Uh, uh, uh, uh
But everything will be fine
So much confusion goin' on (so much confusion goin' on)
(Same old egg, same old egg)
Gotta make it alright (gotta make it alright)
(Gotta organize ish, organize ish)
Gotta elevate your mind
(Organize, organize)
Elevate your mind
(Same old egg, same old egg)
Elevate your mind
(Gotta organize this)
Elevate your mind
(Same old egg, same old egg)

Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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.
