Chemicals down and I'm lost in the back beat
At a party feeling that freak heat up like the temperatures rising
starting to sweat 'cos there's something inside
going down and I'm feeling like the alien's in my head but nobody said
the truth is out there but what is that
'cos I ain't got a piece of that action yet

'Cos I'm on a world with the chocolate trees
I'm on a world with the lemonade seas
I'm on a world with the candy fuzz skies
I'm on a world where the aliens get high

Chemicals down and I'm losing my head space
I could swim if they let me in the race
but I'm not and I'm never gonna get there
'cos they don't let my kind of people in yet
beauty is only skin deep
so how can I feel like it's going off inside of me
I want to get out
I want to be free from this trip of this renegade reality

'Cos I'm on a world with the chocolate trees
I'm on a world with the lemonade seas
I'm on a world with the candy fuzz skies
I'm on a world where the aliens get high

So take me away on a flying saucer
come on you know you wanna

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
