Ok I'm pulling out the backseat lover
Oh I'm so hypnotized
I'd rather sleep than sit and watch you cry
It's up to you if you can validate

I'd rather die than sit and watch you wait
It's time to go and then realize
That you're the one I truly despise
Oh, so we're there and it's time to pack
I'd take you back

I can't believe one thing you say to me
I almost let you meet my whole family
This goes backwards, up, this and anyway

Hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey!

Ok I'm pulling out the backseat lover
Oh I'm so hypnotized
I'd rather sleep than sit and watch you cry
It's up to you if you can validate
I'd rather die than sit and watch you wait

[Repeat: x2]
I can't breathe anymore
I'm telling your lies, I'm telling your secrets, I'm telling on you
I can't see the score
I'm taking it back, I'm taking it back, I'm taking it

I can't believe one thing you say to me
I almost let you meet my whole family
This goes backwards, up, this and anyway

Hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey!

[Repeat: x2]
I can't breathe anymore
I'm telling your lies, I'm telling your secrets, I'm telling on you
I can't see the score
I'm taking it back, I'm taking it back, I'm taking it

Hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey! hey!

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
