She was the type of hype
that made it right
and fights
were unnecessary because she kept peace at night
it's alright ya chillin' with ya girls
and whirls around a sound unique
when feet are on the ground
it's cool that ya clique would be at school
and dicks would drew the stick
but no haps with fools would sick
and in particular this light skinned beautiful
above the secular limitations expecting this man
to stand on the waves of commitment
dips went back & forth to my door
so I couldn't package the shipment
and then this trick went
dressed in white
still hurt from my pain
he couldn't stand the flight
of anotha nigga
now ya man fakin' ways of celibacy
fellas be laughin' & you say lookin' jealous to me
but you don't know while he's sticking you from the back
he jacks you for your brain
Duane had to refrain
from keepin' ya name out of my mouth
I seen ya old clique made noise while you had poise
and can't hold it
I say lets pray for precious lips upon the growing
hmmm, it's one motion for the hoeing.


You swung ya young booty among the hands
of a man who got ya sprung
and then lover tends to be out
dippin' the rubber in the trash
coverin' your bare ass
you losin' respect fast
ya gonna end up in the dump for chumps
that wanted to pump ya rump
for his sake as he's fakin' the funk
and I'm shakin' the trunks
while givin' messages
so listen
wonderin' who he's sung sufficiently and now he's missin'
ya talkin' marriage, that's cute
he's tlakin' I burried the boots
in the locker room
and it's scarry cause you
depend his dick is more than strength
and ain't no promisin'
open your ankles
let 'em wet up all your common sense
you want to play the stupid games
well, this ain't pitter pat
I can't call you no more
what type of shit is that?
Not tryin' ta get you back
don't even flatter yourself
a lack easy the climb
so you can struggle
so when my name blows up
don't be so subtle
so call me back now that my face is showin'
cause you know what I'ma say
it's one motion for the hoein'.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

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"

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
