we're still alive he said we met 11 years before or more and i remember way back when he taught me my first bar chord we used to tear it up reckless moonpies for misfits with no cares you got that right i said we're still here scarred but here but then again we were invincible then we're still here just not like then without a care full of hate when we smashed for laughs and to prove to all fuckers we would quit school stuck ink and called the working man and the men who worked fools to hit bottom and to crash we though the last sight of us was the last sign of us we thought the last sight of us was the last sign of us we thought wrong because face to face here we stand strong but this time we stand for good

    This song is in memory of one of the band members's buddies, who died in a car crash. They used to play paintball together, the guy in the band played on aftershock in the NPPL circuit...... its an awsome song... if you aint herd it... u gotta, his voice is so strained and emotional

    We used to play this song all the time at our paintball games, I must have heard it a thousand times last summer. I never knew that it was about one of the guys from aftershock.

    The below information is wrong. This song is about Chuck's friend Christian who he grew up with in Northern Florida. Chuck obviously went on to do Hot Water Music and Chris became a local hero in the Central Florida area, running an indie punk rock record label, recording studio and playing with his band The Green Goblyn Project. He Performs Solo now under the name Xtian Goblyn & The Hydra. Fact.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
