Tell me what you need to hear and I'll tell it to you again
I can fake it all if you can too
Will it stop from bleeding naturally enough
Can I hold my tongue in silent the words are slow and repeating
I know you why don't you take what you need and then go away
I know you why don't you take what you need

Die to get another glimpse in
So I'll watch the water rinse
Until we all get washed away
I never needed someone comforting me

I don't think I told you how I feel tonight
You perfect little angel your beautiful even now
I know you why don't you take what you need and go away
I know you why don't you take what you need

Die to get another glimpse
So I'll watch the water rinse
Until we all get washed away
I never needed someone comforting me
Down I go

    Isn't it "Will we all get washed away?", not, "Until we all get washed away"...

    Er.... I thought it was "DO we all get..." not "Will.." but I just listened to it better, and nevermind. those lyrics are right. The CD got stolen from me, so I couldn't look at the lyrics in the liner notes. =(

    it's about him and a girl from a past relationship that keeps haunting him and won't go away; this has been holding him back or has had a negative effect and he can't do anything about it except watch it all go down.

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.

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.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

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.
