Choke on your forked tongue as you lie to me again
Say it's too early to show how we feel
just shove me away / but what can be said
to someone who can't hear
or comprehend your actions
I've lost faith in what I've been told / it’s all a lie
I show true feelings always feeling the pain
Smash me to the ground a thousand times as before
But I can't rationalize anymore / carry me away
on concrete pillows incinerate me once more
Love means nothing to you anymore
blood stains on the wall with disfigured forms / end me

    I think this song is about commiting suicide. It makes sence from the lyrics. "I've lost faith in what I've been told / it's all a lie." "Love means nothing to you anymore blood stains on the wall with disfigured forms / end me" The last 2 words do it.

    yes this is the best poison the well song, but keeping with the theme that this whole album is a concept album chronicaling the relationship of one person, this song shows how he this girl he fell in love with, ie nerdy, just wants to remain friends, ie not with in arms length, so now he is fed up with her, and is sick of the fact that she avoids his true feelings, and after all this he is back where he started, ie 12/23/93

    I think this song is how he or she is slowly seperating from the relationship. "Love means nothing to you anymore", means that at the beginning of the relationship she cared, and she loved, but as things were moving apart love meant nothing to her, and she just faked it through. Its like me and my g/f i feel she is seperating from me so thats my favorite part....Poison the well has the best damn lyrics!

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"

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.

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.
