Butcher man’s talking, no walking
Mutha fucka’s eyes too busy with the talking
Downside up or the upside down
Leavin’ his mark all over town
Kitchen man’s saying, no playing
A gun in here now he’ll start slaying
Down the boy, down the good
Everyone playing in his neighborhood

I wanna see it
I wanna feel it
Take a walk with me
Walk through mine

Gun to the head’s just an understanding
‘Cause if you don’t mind me, she won’t mind me
It’s time to go bulk up, time to choke up
Tell us what the boy’s been smoking
Open your eyes and hands out of pockets
See if he’ll finally talk what started
She’s gonna hate him also
He can’t keep silent anymore


Raise your voice
Somebody might hear you
The world that you know
Just came down
You’re looking away
It’s not even over
It’s time to stand up
Stand your ground


Butcher man’s talking, no walking
Mutha fucka’s eyes too busy with the talking
Open your eyes, I’ll open mine
Cross our fence or crawl the line
Kitchen man’s saying, no playing
The world could stand it, better start praying
Rich to the poor, wrong to the good
Everyone playing in his neighborhood

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
