I've been beat up bad,
I've been kicked around
I've been thrown out of every damn bar in this old town
In this old town
I guess they don't like the way we like to have our fun
Cause I'm always out there and I'm on the run
And I'm runnin' and a gunnin' and a lookin' for a damn good time

I've done so much trip they can't look me in the eye
Cause I'm always tryin' to find that ultimate high
And I was hangin' out with my hero, his name is, uh, David Allan Coe
Well I was messed up bad, and he was messed up right
And me and him, well we almost got in a fight
But we ended up at this bar on the side of that road

I've been beat up bad,
I've been kicked around
I've been thrown out of every damn bar in this old town
In this old town
I guess they don't like the way we like to have our fun
Cause I'm always out there and I'm on the run
And I'm runnin' and a gunnin' and a lookin' for a damn good time

I've done so much trip they can't look me in the eye
Cause I'm always tryin' to find that ultimate high
And I had me a hero, and his name was uh, David Allan Coe
Well I was runnin' real hard and he was runnin' real fast
But we got cut up, up there at the pass
And we ended up at this bar on the side of that road

We've been beat up bad,
We've been kicked around
We've been thrown out of every damn bar in this old town
In this old town
I guess they don't like the way we like to have our fun
Cause I'm always out there and I'm on the run
And I'm runnin' and a gunnin' and a lookin' for a damn good time

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
