These paths we'll cross again, again
These pants rubbed off against, against
These paths we'll cross again, again
These pants rubbed off against, against

Take your seat on the tip of the star that you see
Take your piece, take a sip or you'll starve from that shit
Take your piece of that star, take your piece of it kid
Take your piece or you'll starve, take your piece, take it kid

These paths we'll cross again, again
These pants come off against, against
Take your seat on the tip of the star that you see
Take your piece, take a sip or you'll starve from that shit
Take your piece of that star, take your piece of it kid
Take your piece or you'll starve, take your piece, take it kid

These paths we'll cross again, again
These pants come off against, against
Take your seat on that tip of the star that you see
Take your piece, take a sip or you'll starve from that shit
Take your piece of that star, take your piece of it kid
Take your piece or you'll starve
Take your piece, take it kid

Paths, paths, paths
Paths, paths, paths

    This touches on the interconnections of all things. We are not isolated humans living out our lives. All things exist within a system. This universe allows room for many opportunities that we need to "take a piece" of.

    There is also an element of sexuality which affects most peoples' behavior but also has the ability to lead us down the many paths of life. It's a beautiful song with a positive message, cant beat that!

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Dreamwalker
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
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.
