Your lipstick presses upon perfection that pours so candidly.
This sation conflagration seems to interject and then conceive
this tactic fascination that's border lining offensive when received.
It's shameful in its sature of my ideological
connecting with a preordained confession of longevity.
You resonate inside this hall and covertly acquire my latent
passions that seem vain in their prosperity.
We'll never be a picket fence or anything worth fighting for.
Had we but world enough and time?

This apprehension leaves us sordid
revisions of our childhood roadmap.
We constantly underestimate our sentence
to make it seem like the incarceration isn't somthing more.

Your poision is tasting of all the things you'll never need and you use it on everyone.

And on this street your body lays.
His lips will pierce your neck
and as your fngers grasp his faux-black hair,
you give yourself away.
But he doesn't love you.
And for now thats fine because you're dying to feel cheap.
And so you'd give, you'd give
You'd give once more until there's nothing left.
Come feel safe within my arms.

So part your lips. And part your legs. No! This is atrophy embodied.

Nightly success but you left your heart at the door. Change your face like a dress, but you left your heart at the door.

Had we but world enough and time?
This is complacency.

    I think that he sees a girl whom he has strong feelings for, and she not interested in him at all. I'm assuming they've known eachother for a while, with the reference to the childhood roadmap. Then he refers to her using her "poison on everyone". I get the feeling maybe she's a gold digging whore, because she doesn't need anything that she's getting from these people she's seducing. What she does at night, she obviously has a mission, and the protagonist might feel as though he needs to save her. Atrophy means the wasting away of the body, so he might care for her, and see her as wasting herself away sleeping with these men, because she's parting her lips and legs. I think it's just a song where the protagonist cares strongly for someone, but he doesn't fit her lifestyle, and he wants to save her, because she's wasting herself away.

    these guys (and girls) are absolutely amazing! i have one question, though.

    does any one know who sings the part

    "Your poision is tasting of all the things you'll never need and you use it on everyone."

    sunny told me once, but i don't remember.

    oh, and as far as what the song means...

    it's a poem: "to his coy mistress" by andrew marvel.

    it's about a man wanting a woman who doesn't share the same feelings...and he's very hasty, and rushing her because he feels their time is running out, hence the "had we but world enough and time".

    it's a beautiful poem and kyle did a wonderful job capturing the emotion in his lyrics.

    "come feel safe within my arms!" gets me every time.

    you know, after reading it, this song reminds me strongly of holly and paul in "breakfast at tiffany's".

    and the title would make sense after that too, since audrey hepburn is holly golightly.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
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”

Dreamwalker
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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
