I swallow razor blades and spit up blood
Cut out my heart and gave it to my love
I hung myself with an extension cord
And dangled high above the Quija board
I heard the wind through the trees and it made me scream
I'm wonderin' if it's real life or just another dream
I need something...someone
To help me with my brain because it's falling apart
I fall apart
I'm falling to pieces and I don't know why
It's all because...
It's all because we're all afraid to die
And if you think...
And if you think about it, it'll eat you
From the inside out till you don't know what to do
You fall apart

I'm drinkin' gas, smokin' square after square
I'm lookin' for this place but I don't know where
I'm just a soul in the land of the lost
I feel the blood in my lungs when I cough
I cut my hands off in the dark and just sat there and bled
While the whole world fell apart inside of my head

I need something...someone
To help me with my brain because it's falling apart
I fall apart
I'm falling to pieces, and I don't know why
It's all because...
It's all because we're all afraid to die
And if you think...
And if you think about it, it'll eat you
From the inside out till you don't know what to do
You fall apart

I cut my rib cage open with a butcher knife
And opened up the wound to show my life
I'm not the devil, but your mama swear we're one in the same
And we didn't make it this way so we're not carrying the blame
I been down and out
I know what that's all about

I need something...someone (You fall apart!!)
Help me wit my brain
Help me wit my brain
I need something, someone (You fall apart!!)
Help me wit my brain
Help me wit my brain
I need something, someone (You fall apart!!)
Help me wit my brain
Help me wit my brain

I'm falling to pieces and I don't know why
It's all because...
It's all because we're all afraid to die
And if you think...
And if you think about it, it'll eat you
From the inside out till you don't know what to do
You fall apart

Jumped out a twenty story window today
I got back up, and then I walked away
My head was screaming for a Tylenol
Opened the bottle and I ate 'em all
My head was spinnin' in a daze and I need to relax
So where's my chainsaw, butcher knife, and muthafuckin' axe?

Something...someone
To help me with my brain cause it's falling apart
I need something...someone
To help me with my brain cause it's falling apart
I fall apart
I'm falling to pieces, and I don't know why
It's all because...
It's all because we're all afraid to die
And if you think...
And if you think about it, it'll eat you
From the inside out till you don't know what to do
You fall apart
I'm falling to pieces, and I don't know why
It's all because...
It's all because we're all afraid to die
And if you think...
And if you think about it, it'll eat you
From the inside out till you don't know what to do
You fall apart

I keep fallin' apart (I never wanted to die)
I keep fallin' apart
I keep fallin' apart (I never wanted to die)
I keep fallin' apart
I keep fallin' apart (I never wanted to die)
I keep fallin' apart
I keep fallin' apart (I never wanted to die)
I keep fallin' apart
I keep fallin' apart (I never wanted to die)
I keep fallin' apart

    This song is really friggin good. Its so true. A lot of people don't get to live their life as they want to bcuz their so damn afraid to die, and if all you think about is death, then you're never gonna fucking live and you're whole life falls apart.

    Good song. Like meow said, people are afraid to live their life because they're afraid to die or afraid to make mistakes or afraid of shit in gerenal.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.
