Everybody needs some time away
Just stuck in the k-hole again
An 18 hour holiday
Just stuck in the k-hole again, just once again

Mrs. Kitty Ketamine your perseverance may
Outlast my ambition to go home
Infatuation with your dark side I obey
Forbidden pleasures, I have grown to loathe/love

Somewhere between the eden and north utopia
Somewhere beneath the astral plain
I've taken residence on sybaritic soil
You won't be seeing me again
You won't be seeing me again

Dropping Crumbs and flying thumbs
Won't help me get back home
The home is where the heart is, I've been told
'Cause I promised my heart to her
She cooked it meduium well
Then proceeded to swallow it whole

It may sound good to you
It may sound oh so wrong
Just stuck in the k-hole again
Winter's broken, summer's gone
Just stuck in the k-hole again
Just once again

    the 18 hour holiday part and the part about utopia is a reference to brave new world. In the book, one of the characters takes a drug called soma that takes her on an 18 hour "holiday". The setting of the book is in a so called "utopia".

    I have to disagree with 'Serotrance' on this one; at least on the part about it being an "emo" song. NOFX is a punk band. While the line between punk and emo may be somewhat obscured, the defining line I've found is that an 'emo' song would talk of wanting to die, or such a topic would at least be mentioned in one song on an album that could be defined as 'emo'. Regardless, here's what I assumed was the meaning:

    The song is about Ketamine, as a few people have essentially confirmed, and addiction to ketamine, so much so that the singer, or at least the person the song is supposed to be from the perspective of, doesn't want to be outside of the "K-Hole," or, the hallucinated reality seen whilst the singer or person the song is from the perspective of is on Ketamine. The fourth paragraph in the typed lyrics appears to be expressing some regret for being addicted, but also an inability to quit, because of Ketamine's addictive qualities. Finally, the last [typed] paragraph expresses a very punk-ish disregard for what anyone's opinion is about the addiction, and that the addiction continues through a long period of time.

    This song is just bizarre. Ketamine is an incredibly powerful hallucinogen, and the k-hole is the experience of going through a "hole" into another reality while on ketamine. It's not really something you'd expect to find an emo song about.

    This is a song about being addicted to ketamine. If you ever take dissociatives, this song will make far more sense to you.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
