Feel the burn and the fury of my pen
Feel the fire, as I fan the flames again
Brace yourself for the mediocre
Hail the king of the almost good enough
Nothing bold, nothing's flying off the cuff
Things might change, but don't hold your breath yet
Try floating with the flow, try not too run too slow
Be average, not below
Let's go!

Hello lamewads, I'm with you
Raise your fists if this rings true
Hello lamewads, never quite our best or finest
Hello lamewads, I'm predicting a C minus

Like a shoelace slowly coming loose
Like a flashlight running out of juice
Save your necks, with some lame excuses
I'm neither friend nor foe, I'm never going pro
Does this sound apropos?
Let's go!

Neither hot nor cold
This is getting old

    I think this is a song about lukewarm Christians. And I think Reese is just saying that he is like the rest of us, he struggles with not be "hot" for God also.

    This is about how Reese is in the run for respect again just like the rest of us.

    like you guys say its about his stuggle in trying to get hot. you know its all like that verse about ur either for me or against me and if ur lukewarm jesus will spit you out of his mouth i only have the one song amplify on my ipod but this one really has great lyrics its just shows that the celebrities are really know better...they're just ppl to identify with they know the same struggles.

    I don't think this song is about a relationship with Christ, I think its more about Reese and his music. This is just an interduction to this now album by this new band, it's just to start things of in with some personality. The whole first verse is just him making fun of himself, that's what makes him so cool, he's so humble and he doesn't think highly of himself.

    I like the ending "Neither hot nor cold. This is getting old" this might have something to do with him and Godm but I'm not sure.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
