I’m waiting with my arms up high
My eyes pulled tight to lines of worry
That you won’t meet me here tonight
Am I reaching enough?
Am I reaching at nothing?
Am I reaching enough?
Am I reaching at all?
Tonight we will be disappointed together
This sickness for you hands abounding
Like some holy disease
A perfect symphony resounding

    I think that this song isn't necessarily about doubt that God is there or not, it's more of just a call during the hard times. In the first half of the song, he feel downtrodden and like he can't connect with God anymore, and in the last half, he's saying that he's going to go to God anyway, even though he has some sort of weight or sin in him. They can both be disappointed together, and isn't it true that when you find someone to be disappointed with it usually makes you feel better? Great band; can't wait for the new album.

    i agree more with KAC89. I think this song is about how we disappoint God and how that puts a wedge between Him and us. It creates all this doubt, but ultimately the author of this song finds almost a twisted comfort in the mutual disappointment of his sins; that God is disappointed in him, but so is the author disappointed in himself. This mutual disappointment creates a common ground for the reconciliation between man and Creator.

    At one of their shows, he explained what this song was about, and he said he wrote it after someone he knew died at an early age. After asking God why and how he could let this happen, he came to realize that Sin brought pain into this world, and that God was disapointed as much as he was and it comforted him to know that "tonight we will be disapointed together"

    Song Meaning

    Jeremy Edwardson at a show in Lawrence, KS said the song was written about a friend who swore up and down he was seeing this "event" at a local lake. He'd go there late at night and watch this strange light appear on the water. His friend invited Jeremy out to see the light and he went, but nothing ever appeared. He also said the lake was the local Clinton lake so he was probably blowing smoke up everyone's ass.

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"

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
