Succubi swallows
Substance pure
Teeth like knives
Stabbed in the mind
Of an embryo

Take another look
In your victim’s eyes
And know the killer
Will lie in the bed
They incised upon us

Faded lies
Lie cold
And feel
Traitorous ties
Bind blind
The infant atricial

Flying blight
Swings high
And cracks
The surface
Of the holiest mirror
But unseeing
Visual stimulant
Just has me
Seeing clearer

Embalmed desire
Lies dead upon
An epitaph
Crushing those
Who once
Held the damned
Icon upon their
Ever-hopeful shoulders

Smiling stranger
Swoons when danger
Caresses and cuts
A flash of red
From the seat
Of its bliss

    Rumbling in a similar manner to "The Disenchanted," but this time the speaker can no longer fathom his/her condition and is now slipping out of their former disillusioned "reality."

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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."
