That night
I never came home
Wandering souls captured
My thoughts
Emptiness
Filled my mind
Urgency
Spoke her lies
In the confines
Of these, grey walls
I watched them
Move together
Taking me places
I cannot, remember (remember)
We have been, poured out
Into this loveless bride

How quickly I forget
That this is meaningless
How quickly I forget
(How quickly I forget)
That this is meaningless
(That this is meaningless)

In a world
Passing through
My fingers
I still chase the wind

How quickly I forget
That this is meaningless
How quickly I forget
(How quickly I forget)
That this is meaningless
(That this is meaningless)

What have I learned from yesterday
What have I learned from yesterday

    Its about- How we need to do things we like, not things we need to...

    Living every day the same is meaningless

    Thi song might be about the fact that we live a meaningless life. Everything makes sense to us but "urgency spoke her lies", so if we take the time to think about it, everything we do is meaningless and senseless.

    Yeah, i agree with Ollo AILD...I think its just a realiztation that everything we do just allows life to pass by. We just watch it and dont understand or live it to the fullest possibly?

    i think you guys are mostly right except i think it means most people lives are meaningless and that they forget this from time to time that they have to get back on track to there meaningful life

    i dont know. all these ideas may not corralate. i just thought that last part meant, like i a world passing through my fingers i still chase the wind. i thought the wind is the unseen aka GOD. i this world i passing through our finger, kinda like the song undifined on frail words collapse. christians seem to somtimes forget that this (this world) is meaningless so they try to prepare treasure on earth rather than preparing treasures in heaven. another thang, when tit says poured out into a loveless bride. we spoke about this i church at one time. but i cant remember. the phrase is used i the B-I-B-L-E. a number of times. so yeah. jesus christ is lord, yo!!!

    song is obviously about not falling for the unecessary needs from earth, mankind, etc... u can see when it says "in a world that is passing through my fingers, i still chase the wind.." its kind of showing how u have to look past the people who say that believing and following christianity is a waste of time, kind of like chasing the wind, u cant catch it so its meaningless..

    "The night I never came home wandering souls captured my thoughts. Emptiness filled my mind..." Starting there I think that this means ultimately feeling depressed; Feeling thoughts of lonliness and anger at yourself. "Urgency spoke her lies in the confines of these grey walls." Our elusive 'Her' is a generalization of anything that makes us believe the lie that we tell ourselves to make ourselves feel worse. "I watched them move together; Taking me places I cannot remember." 'Them' in this case is the walls; So a sense of dizziness is created, probably from the empty feeling left inside from 'her' lies that 'she' keeps telling him. "We have been poured out into a loveless bride." Our 'bride' (This I am skeptic on a bit, and am open for correction.) I think this is in the definition of us living with and in the world. Treating it as a 'bride' after consumation. Which, the world has no love, it is an existence for our sociality. Which lead to the next lines..."How quickly I forget that this is meaning less. In a world passing through my fingers, I still chase the wind." These lines bouce off eachother in a parallelism; Living in a 'loveless bride' is meaningless and chasing after the hope of finding love in the world is meaningless. "What have I learned from yesterday?" Self-explanitory...Asking yourself what you've learned. Trying to learn that love does not come easy, and all love must be nurtured.

    God Bless-

    since we question from the bible, the "wind" we chase and living a meaningless life on Earth, comes from the entire book of Ecclesiastes: the whole book talk about how living without God is meaningless. and chasing the wind is meaningless. incredible book, the entire book is awesome, heck the entire Bible is awesome

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.
