Ain't it strange that we destroy
What we embrace
And we leave
What we seek
It's such a shame
Ain't it strange that we smile
When we cry
And no one knows why we are here
And where we going to
Ain't it strange
We could be, we could be so good together
Ain't it strange that we share what we hate
That we break what we love
It's such a shame
Ain't it strange when we pray, we betray anyway
And no one knows what we are for
Why we're so tough
When we're so fragile
Ain't it strange

Ain't it strange, still we could fall into a dream, I'd wish no one
Will catch that fall
For we could fall for love, life is but a dream, life is but a dream
All the tears in the world not in vain for the pain is gone, the
Shame is washed away
When we're all one, life is but a dream, life is but a dream
It's hard to believe after thousands of years
The world is still drowning in blood and tears
We've been quite advanced but again we fail
It is dog eats dog on the ratrace trail
It is getting too much and we're getting nowhere
While hatred and fear is all that we share
I can't take it no more when I'm watching the news
We must stick together or we're bound to lose

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

Punchline
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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
