century opens like we're breaking yellow tape at the scene of something ciminal, beyond obscene. caught just a glimpse, another rubbernecker rocketing past - all perpetrators, or refugees? it is a carnival crime. we're queued for the fire this time, so push the pace to race against all the faces in this identikit. we're frozen, lsitening to the sun, waiting for new kinds of light to come; so little heat from whatever we set ablaze. burning so bright for all the kids who need effigies? the time has long since passed to stop, just drop this role. self-immolation;s only heightening a certain relief. i was never even warmed by the glow. it is a carnival crime. try on all ears and all eyes, and push the pace to race against all the faces in this identikit. we're frozen, listening to the sun, awiting for new kinds of light to come; so little heat from whatever we set ablaze. burn through the features and enver see the face. consumed by the known, escape routes are closed. nowhere to go but still we run. we snap to fit to this identikit.

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
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
