The senseless painted room, excuses from the sky
Compassion for nothing, purity was a lie
Our souls have wounds, our sons will touch
The breath of life, for all mankind

By the faith of god, let me be my name
In the name of god, let me live my faith

To instigate a fear that resides in you
The mystery of each and every one of us
Trust to trust, teeth to teeth
Lying low, near the sky

By the faith of god, let me be my name
In the name of god, let me live my faith
Under the ways of faith, can I live?

Sacrifice is made in holy wars
Covered in blood, the path we walked before

Seeds in sacred soil no longer grow
Can I live without you killing me

Under the ways of faith, can I live?

    My Interpretation

    I think this song is about how ambigous and judgemental religon is and asks us how we are supposed to live our lives with this burden on our shoulers all the time.

    My Interpretation

    Suggests to me that perhaps some people use the context of their religion to excuse or justify their actions. The narrator / singer seems to not want others to "abuse" the words of religion as they want their faith to hold meaning to them and their name, and not be tarnished by the justifications of others (who use it to fight wars, kill others etc.)

Magical

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.

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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
