It's said and done, there is no turning back. I've made my choice, now I've gotta face the facts. Within myself, the hunger won't be subdued, because I can't have my cake and eat it to. I'm worn down from fighting with myself. I'll save my life and lose my mental health. I'm wiggin' out, everything is turnin' round. A bitter taste - no comfort can be found. An emptiness wells inside of me, there's no filling the void that will always be. A self control is all I have to hold. It's been too long. Maybe I have been to bold? When you're bound by your own conviction a discipline can be your addiction. I'm warn down from fighting with myself. I'll save my life and lose my mental health. I've gone this far so I'll keep tryin'. Continue to fight, hope that I don't end up dying.

    Yo this song is nice don't leave this one out. The beginning is the best. "For the past 15 minutes now you've been droning on about names. Toby, Toby, Toby, Toby Wong, Toby Wong, Toby Wong, Toby Chung, fucking Charley Chan. I've got Madonna's big dick comin out of my left ear and toby the...i don't know what comin out of my right." HAHA what a fuckin great song.

    this is such an awesome song to me, all of afi's songs are the lyrics can just fit with my life so perfectly, i dont know what they mean to davey or adam or hunter or jade but for me, every word of this song fits a really bad time i had, i tried to kill my self and oded on tylenol, but it was exactly like that and after i'd already taken the pills it was "said and done, there is not turning back ive made my choice now ive gotta face the facts." and "im worn down from fighting with my self ill save my life and loose my mental health hope that i dont end up dying" thats exactly how i felt after i took it it was too late but i didnt want to die, and the bitter taste it gave me, THIS SONG IS SO PERFECT im in love with afi's lyrics.

    yeah, but just so you know, Jade and Hunter didn't play on this song...other than that, I love this song, and it could be about depression or something of the sort.

    Hey, i like this song, I think it's about being unsure about a choice you have to make, maybe wishing you would have made it differently, but i'm not sure, does anybody else have any different takes on what this song is about? ~Thanks

    Great song. The beginning dialogue comes from "Reservoir Dogs", an excellent film about a group of robbers and their plot for a diamond heist.. which goes horribly wrong.

    the beginning is from a movie called "Resevoir Dogs". Thus the front cover of the album being a spoof of the movie's poster. The band on the front cover is meant to look like the characters in the movie, Mr. Pink, Mr. White, etc.

    I live by this line:

    Yeah, the beginning is funny. Rerervoir Dogs is fucking great movie, but does it actually have anything to do with this song? It doesn't sound like they would have anything in common.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.
Album art
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.
Album art
Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
