I came I saw I kicked some ass
The pain I caused it makes me laugh
'Cause the way I do my thing is strange
I just inject myself into your veins
Can't run, can't hide, there's no way out
The sun will rise and its about
Time for the wreckoning
Time time for this girl to sing

Damn if I thought that you would change
And my life would stay the same
I went you don't even care about me enough
You don't give a damn
Things will come and things will go
But there's one thing that I know for sure
Is that you don't give a damn about me
And so I'm walking out the door

Oh yeah hmm..

Can't move can't breathe it's getting dark
The beast has come to steal your heart
So you better practice your scream
Because you may not like your dream

Things will will come and things will go
But there's one thing I know for sure
Is that you don't give a damn about me
And so I'm walking out the door

The wreckoning, the wreckoning, the wreckoning
The wreckoning, the wreckoning, the wreckoning

Damn if I thought that you would change and my life would stay the same
I went You don't even care about me you know you don't give a damn
Things will come and things will go
But there's one thing that I know for show
Is that you don't give a damn about me
So tough I'm walking out the door

Damn if I thought you would change and my life would stay the same
I went You don't even care about me you know you don't give a damn

And I'm running from my problems I got my phony face painted on
And then I think of what you said to me
And then I think of what you did to me
I think of you and probably laugh
And then I think of you and probably laugh
And Then I think of you and problably laugh

You're the one I'm running from (chorus)

    It's vengeful. The woman's boyfriend or husband is cheating on her or treating her with disprespect and she isn't going to take that shit. She doesn't want to suffer longer even after giving him a second chance. "Damn if I thought that you would change And my life would stay the same When you don't even care about me Ah no, you don't give a damn " It's a break up song nonetheless. This girl is fed up with her partner and is simply leaving and she is going to get some exacted revenge on him as well as stated in this lyric, "The pain I cause it makes me laugh " My conclusion is it the girl's got some attitude and if she is going to be leaving someone for his wrongs, she is going to go out and get revenge on him and feel damn good about it.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
