I bid farewell to the summer and she turned right into fall
Said darling don't you wait for me at all
Cause in a year you will awake and I'll have grown ten feet tall
Darling you wont know me at all

And my brothers dig their castles deep into the snow
The birds unhinge their wings and south they've flown
And I still fit in your arms, but ma i swear that I have grown
In my head in my hearts and in my bones

And I said how long, how long can I feel this 'til it's gone
Cause necessity's the glue that holds these bonds
I'm not lost anymore

And the spring crept upon me when she shed her winter skin
And said darling I don't know where to begin
Your shame has died and passed its fervor to the next of kin
Your pride's a lion lost within its den

And the moon became my father as we drifted into may
And the tide retreated out as if to say
Sometimes we all feel the pull as night turns into day
Don't worry i know your soul will be okay

And I said how long, how long can I feel this 'til it's gone
Cause necessity's the glue that holds these bonds
I'm not lost anymore

Gave my greetings to the summer when she showed her head again
And said darling I've thought of the things you've said
But change is just the daughter that father time tucks into bed
Darling let's just sing until we're dead

And I said how long, how long can I feel this 'til it's gone
Cause necessity's the glue that holds these bonds
I'm not lost anymore

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.
