I'm out here on a limb for you again
Around and round we go, getting nowhere

Why can't I explain the way I feel again?
Why can't I just stand
Instead I crawl to you again
Why's it always feel like Sunday?

I hacked myself to bits, for you again
Hanging on to this for nothing

Why can't I explain the way I feel again?
Why can't I just stand
Instead I crawl to you again
Why's it always feel like Sunday?

I've had enough of you
I've had enough of you

Why can't I explain the way I feel again?
Why can't I just stand
Instead I crawl to you again
Why's it always feel like Sunday?
Why's it always feel

    Pete talked about this song a bit. Can't remember where exactly, but I know this is what he said.

    Sunday is about that growing sense of dread of the coming day. Sunday's the last day of the weekend and tomorrow you'll have to go back. He said it meant school when he was younger, work when he was older. Basically, it's a song lamenting the oncoming struggles of life and asserting that the speaker's life always feels like he's anticipating problems.

    i am horrible at giving the meaning of a song, but i see this one as...

    he is having difficulty with his girlfriend and he wants to leave her, but he fears going out on his own, so he keeps coming back to her, even though that is not where he wants to be... i may be totally wrong, but thats how i see it...

    the lines "why cant i just stand, instead i crawl to you again" and "ive heard enough of you" basically explain it

    so what if the video doesn't explain much? it's a good video, nonetheless.

    I've heard these guys talk about this song on a radio station around here, and they said it was about how the singer hates sundays because of his parents, they forced him to do something on sundays I don't remember what he said exactly or how he said it, but I believe it was something about his parents making him goto church on sundays.

    But yea, thats the meaning of this song, and it is a really awesome song.

    it has a different meaning to me i relate to this song cause of me and my ex,when we fought we would always say we wanna split,id cave first so the line"why cant i just stand ,instead i crawl to you again"is very true and also we met on a sunday so the title has meaning as well-at least for me,we have since split and this song remains very important to me.

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.

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.

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.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
