Yeah, yeah yeah yeah...

Fell on my feet this morning.
Two angels heard me cry...
This is your fate hereafter.

The future is my friend.
It hurts, but it treats me well.
Take hold and be it's master.

Gold as the sun is,
As you turn me on.
And bath in it's sun dry,
I'm alive, older and strong.
Let me be someone.
I'll take hold and be it's master.

Gold as the sun is,
As you turn me on.
With echoes of laughter.
As I cry out loud...

Got my feet on the ground.
Your hand's found me.
Saw my blood on the ground
And it changed my life

So many parts that I have to play.
A tangle with life set me up that way,
Now I know,
These are the words that I have to say.
Won't you let me...
Won't you hear me cry...

Got my feet on the ground,
...feet on the ground.

Your hand's falling'... (L)
Saw my blood on the ground, (L)
And it changed my life... (L)
Your face in the crowd, (L)
You're my future. (L)
Saw my blood on the ground. (L)
And it changed my life... (L)

Got my feet on the ground.
...feet on the ground.

Your hand's found me... (L)
Blood on the cross, (L)
And it changed my life... (L)

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Fell on my feet this mornin'...

    Song Meaning

    Yes; change or transformation. More specifically, death & resurrection. Told metaphorically through the martyrdom of Christ. A great song to reflect upon on Easter. It can inspire you with a new sense of purpose after a rebirth; a renewed resolve (after a deep wound or tragedy). Very motivating song.

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
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.

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.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
