Where am I to go? what do I have to do?
Borders all around me, there's no chance for a choice
Born in this world in a war stricken land
I will do what I have to do and go where I can

The walls that we build we are taking them down
Imaginary lines of corruption and greed
The walls that we build we are taking them down
Overpopulation isn't just an excuse

Searching for a place where I can have my own rights
Everywhere around me there's death in the air
I want to find a way to make a change in my life
I will do what I have to do and fight till the end

The walls that we build we are taking them down
Imaginary lines that won't allow us to live
The walls that we build we are taking them down
Denying all the rules and all their abuse

No, no, it won't be this way
No, no, can't be their way
Pride, pride, they won't blur our pride
I, I, must stay alive

Looking for the ground to build a home that is safe
They make the planet small and they have no control
Everywhere you go they have an eye on your steps
I will run where I have to run and hide where I can

The walls that we build we are taking them down
Exploring different fields so we grow in our hearts
The walls that we build we are taking them down
Exploiting all the lies to defend our own kind

No, no, it won't be this way
No, no, can't be their way
Pride, pride, they won't blur our pride
I, I, must stay alive

Border wars

One more crime
Crossing lines
Trapped inside
State of mind
Never blind
Fate untied
No, no, it won't be this way
No, no, can't be their way
Pride, pride, they won't blur our pride
I, I, must stay alive

Border wars

One more crime
Crossing lines
Trapped inside
State of mind
Never blind
Fate untied

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.

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.
