The names have been changed to protect the innocent.
This is poison.
Manufactured for the general well being of the community.
You can kill what you can't see.
What can't be seen can't possibly exist.
Life uninterrupted, undecided, unanticipated.
Manufactured for the general well being of the community.
You can't kill what you can't see.
What can't be seen can't possibly exist.
You call this worldwide destruction?
I call it a mediocre excuse to force-feed pollution as a problem.
Colonize, monopolize, and destroy.
Compared to actual existence, this is child's play.
Screaming for an answer you're never going to get.
This is poison, this is battery acid.
Lies, lies, lies..

    How is global warming being manufactured for the general well being of the community though?

    It's more about religion.

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,

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
