I see god in my dreams and I can't stop running
Don't care what I've become but fear what i am becoming
Set me straight, I'm no angel
Falling apart, he feels death from the table
Waking asleep, I can't sleep yet I'm sleeping
I'm slipping again and no hope's what I'm thinking
I'm buried alive, inside, so claustrophobic
Nothing to say today, afraid and we know it
What do I know, i know that we know nothing
I feel like I'm constantly waiting for something
What am I waiting for, what am I trying to do?
I'm trying to prove that it's all a lie

Can't get enough and I'm already there
I'm already there and I still can't get enough
So just deny what you can't repair
Between the lie, read between your lie
Can't get enough and I'm already there
I'm already there and I still can't get enough
Run as far as you can because nobody cares
Between the lie, read between your lie

I got a little secret that I keep inside
Deep down dormant in the dark she hides
But every time that I close my eyes I can feel it
I can feel her die
Maybe I'm jaded too, maybe I'm dead like you
Maybe I'm obsolete, maybe I'm incomplete
Maybe insanity blinded by prophecy
Maybe the opposite, maybe I'm right
Maybe a victim, maybe you're not
When did you start to care about what I thought?
What would you do for me, who will you be for me
What about family, who would you kill for me?

Ammunition for a prophet's gun
All that's become must unbecome
All that's sacred, all that's true,
All that's nothing lies in you

Madness, insanity, Why do you stare through me?
Finish the rest of me, see what you wanna see
Say what your gonna say, give and then take away
Waiting for guilt to try and read between your lie
Try and read between your lie
Try and read between your lie
Try and read between your lie

Go and kiss my fuckin' ass

And it's all that's nothing
Lies in you

Even if you're forgiven
Would you forgive yourself?
Even if you're forgiven
Would you forgive yourself?
Even if you're forgiven
Would you forgive yourself?
Even if you're forgiven
Would you forgive yourself?

Can't get enough and I'm already there
So just deny what you can't repair
Can't get enough and I'm already there
Run as far as you can because nobody cares

Read between your lie
Read between your lie
Read between your lie

    I think in this song, this guy is talking about not being like some woman, who's been lying to him, and has done something wrong. But then in ways, he's also become something he doesn't want to be. "Don't care what i've become but fear what i am becoming Set me straight, i'm no angel" He's talking about how he doesn't care about what he is now, but what he's gonna be in the future. This is a good song, and I love this band

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
