De aarde kreunt, maar niemand hoort haar
De dieren sterven, maar niemand helpt ze
De mens is verblind door zijn vijand
Die hij beschouwt als zijn vriend

De geest van de Satan leeft tussen ons allen
Het verlangen naar rijkdom, genot en macht
Verblindt het hart van ieder mens
En dood de liefde voor zijn naaste

De waarschuwing vergeten die Jahweh ons gaf
De groei van rampen, oorlogen en geweld.
Verbaast ons allen, ook al is het ons verteld
In het boek der openbaringen

Deze tekenen gaan vooraf aan het eind van deze tijd
De komst van de Anti-Christ en zijn Rijk
De mens ziet hem als zijn held, en aanbidt de draak die hem gezonden heeft

De verdrongen tekenen gebeuren om ons heen
Maar niemand, niemand herkent ze behalve

Wij die leven in de Heer, genaamd Jahweh
De God van Israel, Jezus Christus en de Heilige Geest
De drie eenheid van de bijbel

Zie je dan niet, dat alles gebeurt
Zoals God ons heeft voorspeld in Zijn Woord?
Wat wil je nog meer als bewijs?
Jezus is de machtigste levende God

    How lovely! Dutch lyrics! Ofcourse, I'm one of the very few who can understand this right? For your favor I'm working on a translation on this one.

    Well i am from dutch:

    the songs is about

    how we humans are fucking up the world: animals die, the earth cries but no one pays attention to it. We humans are blinded by the enemy we and we think it is our friend.

    the second: satan lives between us./ with power, money and pleasure he corrupts the heart of men. and kills the love for the person next to you

    third:we forgot the warning jahweh gave us. the growing disasters, the coming of wars and violence. It suprises us even while it has been told to us that it would happen.

    four: these are the signs of the end of our time, when the anti-chirst wil come

    Five: little the same as 1

    six: we live in the lord called jahweh, the god of israel jezus christ and the holy spirit/ghost

    seven: can't you see that everything that hapens is as god has told us in his word ? (the bible) what do you want more to proof this? jezus is the mightiest living god

    that comes close to what the lyrics say. Funny slechtvalk is a dutch metal band if you hear them they sound like death metal but they seem to be christians.. it pleasures me to see that there is metal that ís heavy and does not always has lyrics about destrusction and worshipping satan

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"

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.

Magical
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.
