all around, back & forth, the sickening smell of insignificance. I'm used to it now, I must reek of it. the density of the air was tangible today, it was way

too heavy for me. I woke up an hour earlier, I am eager to amaze myself for all the things that I could do, but most definitely won't, during this loose

hour. another day, predictably mundane, another scratch on the surface of the 7" ep, that is my life... it keeps on bouncing!

(all around, back & forth)

my "columbian (medium roast) full-bodied with rich flavor" coffee. expensively tasted like sewer water today. the "normal & subtle" sour taste

couldn't be sweeten at all, no matter how I sugared it. how many times have I wondered if this taste wasn't impregnated in my mouth? and once

again (and as always), I'm having a delightful conversation. with the refrigerator by my side, he's always complaining, I'm used to his point of

view now, his constant mumbling... drastically sarcastic, almost as bitter
as my coffee. he seems to have an opinion about everything? an instant

passed, then I remembered that I have an optic sense. ah, there it is, my 4th floor morning-view of a sunlit back alley. down there, an ant-like man is

wandering , nervously looking all around, back & forth. and once the tension is gone, sure that nobody's there

(Unaware that he's being stared at)

unzip his pants and ungraciously expose himself in order to piss his way through my alley. I am almost has relieved as he, once he's finished, but

for obvious different reasons. happily confined, thoroughly hollow and unfulfilled. I think I'll go back to sleep. (Is it possible to be sea-sick on firm ground?)

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

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.
