Mutilate me, hurt me now
You've cut your wings to justify my guiltiness
We're all slave of some sadistic obsession
You put this needle in my head, a needle called "pain"

Let me hate you, I'll never save you from yourself
Hold me, destroy me, tomorrow will never be the same

You reveal the worst:
My inclination to forgive every sin
I 'm enabled to avoiding stare at your halo of desperation

Malevolent love, it's all you are
There's no redemption in your humiliating smile
You drain the life outside, your grace is a lie
You put your seal in my flesh so deep within

Let me hate you, I'll never save you from yourself
Hold me, destroy me, tomorrow will never be the same
Let me hate you, I'll never save you from yourself
Break me, constrain me, like an angel falling on burning grounds

There's no rest in your lethal embrace
Surrounded by your disdain
There's nothing more I can hope from you
In this hell on earth, I've already sold my soul

Let me end this dead-end game

You've corrupted me step by step
Like a worm, you're devouring me to the core
I wish to die in your deadly arms,
Exquisite devil in disguise

Let me hate you, I'll never save you from yourself
Hold me, destroy me, tomorrow will never be the same
Let me hate you, I'll never save you from yourself
Break me, constrain me, like an angel falling on burning grounds

    I'm pretty sure the title is a reference to the Robot called MA-0 (Emma Zero) in Asimov's "First Law" short story.

    I'm pretty sure it's

    "It's just not enough, I've already sold my soul"

    But I can't be sure.

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"

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
