I can't wait much longer
Revenge is overdue
You took your chance and screwed me
Way back in '82

Inside my hate is burning
My brain's on overload
My innocence is over
Now I'm ready to explode

I'm gonna be your nemesis
I like it when you scream
I'm the mother of your nightmares
Got a contract to redeem

This one's for you
Right in your face
Just sit on this
And spin around
This one's for you
Your time is up
Stick it, shove it
Where the sun don't shine

You've always been a wise guy
You played at being rough
I stripped away your masquerade
And now you ain't so tough

You're a coward with no backbone
I will crush you with my heel
Put the scrapings in my blender
Add some bourbon, what a meal

I'm gonna be your nemesis
I like it when you scream
I'm the mother of your nightmares
Got a contract to redeem

This one's for you
Right in your face
Just sit on this
And spin around
This one's for you
I hold the ace
Stick it, shove it

This one's for you
Right in your face
Just sit on this
And spin around
This one's for you
A bunch of fives
Stick it, shove it

This one's for you
Right in your face
Just sit on this and spin around
This one's for you
No one but you
Stick it, shove it
Where the sun don't shine

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"

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,

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.
