I had the strangest dream I ever had
As I lay asleep once in my bed
I was in a garden by a fountain
Where tears would make love grow

She kissed me there and my life did start
A Silver bullet in my heart
Now summers old and winters cold
And tears do make love grow

So please come to me
Through the garden,
to the river,
in the valley by the sea
Show me all the scars that show
And tears will make love grow

Sing the smilin' last happy cowboy songs
Until all of the Angels in the heaven they've flown
And there'll be an oasis for our dry rotten faces
And tears do make love grow

And angels lie between your marbled thighs
As spiders explode in your kaleidoscopic eyes
And rain will fall, and wind will blow
And tears will make love glow

So sleep softly, dream of me
Wherever you go
Oh, I'm not dead or buried yet
Tell me so I know


It was the weirdest dream I'd ever had
And if I dreamed that I'd dream
Then I'd dream you right back
Then I'd be there in the garden, down by that fountain where

Tears would make love grow
Where tears would make love grow
Where tears would make love grow

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.

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.
