Battle through with
Expertise and strength
Friendly fire, napalmed
Burning, blackened blood
Jesus lovers renege on
Promises of removal

Nobody there ever had a reason to kill
All we had was an obligation to live
When that reason becomes unobtainable
Survival is useless, we're unable

Den of disease, uncommon thieves
Thievery of a most devious kind
Of body and soul

Act as a marionette
Yellow puppet master's strings stranglehold
Horrific tales untold, malarial chills unfold
From anopheles mosquitoes relentless offensive
Emaciate

Prisoned, immovable veal
Tenderized husk of skin and bones
Fed fecal scraps that dogs won't even eat
Malnutrition amongst our people

So make way for the cage
A dishonorable stage

Where blood flood flows
Filth rats feast in swarms
Life force warms
Their strychnine stomachs

Weaker than God
Paler than snow
Wilder than any animal knows
Fully understanding
No means for escape
Idealize the Star Spangled Banner rape
In a state
Of psychosis
Emaciate, emaciate

Blurry vision
Through sunken eyes
Pulsate drop
Idle heart stop
Thoughts becoming numb
Witness the final words I've spoken

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
