Oh there's somethin' bout the skylight tonight
Something that makes me know everything's goin' be alright
There's somethin' in the way that the stars align
There's not a single moment I'ma pass by

The hour's now
The base is loud
The disco lights
Shinin' through the crowd
We're holdin' time in our hands and it stops when we say
We say
And we ain't stoppin' 'til the morning light

[Chorus]
We gotta hold back the sun, don't let it come
Ain't stoppin' for no one
The night is young
Don't let them turn on the lights
Let us decide when they play that last song
The night is done
When we break the dawn

We break the dawn [Repeat: x4]

Oh there somethin' on the surface right now
Somethin' the keeps me movin' diggin' deeper down
So I just let the speakers speak to me
Vibrations movin' on the floor all around

The hour's now (yes)
The base is loud (yes)
The disco lights (yes)
Shinin' through the crowd
We're holdin' time in our hands and it stops when we say
And we ain't stopping 'til the morning light

[Chorus]

We break the dawn [Repeat: x8]

The daylight scene never hurt nobody
And if the DJ decides there ain't no more party
Cause we're turnin' when we're good and ready
We step outside
Til the sunrise
Wait up and let me

We ain't goin' nowhere
Til we good and ready
Oh
Break the dawn!

[Chorus: x2]

We gotta hold back the sun

[Repeats]
We break the dawn

    It's almost shocking that more people haven't commented on this song; it's surprisingly good. I love the theme of doing what you want and not letting "them" tell you otherwise. Story of my life right there. (:

    ...oh, by the way, if you haven't seen the video for this, check it out. The guys in it are quite gorgeous. And they dance. :D

    This song means so much to me. I think it's about enjoying being young and doing whatever you want to do. Just have a good time and let time fly.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.
