Spacial awareness
So much confusion
And it's so difficult to harness
But then I look at you, nimble and righteous
And then I look at the floor: we made a fine mess

My kiss, can you feel it yet? In the back of your legs?
And on the nape of your neck?

Are you a temple? Are you a temptress?
There's too much choice, the possibilities are endless
So wash away my sins, give me catharsis!
Re-magnetize my moral compass

My kiss, can you feel it yet? In the back of your legs?
And on the nape of your neck?

Your touch, I cannot regret!
I love the shape of your mouth and the back of your head

You're so my kind
Erotic and divine
I gotta testify to how you purify

To me you're more than a human
You're more complex
You're like a fallen angel
Who uses god as a hex

My kiss, can you feel it yet? In the back of your legs?
And on the nape of your neck?

Your touch, I cannot regret!
I love the shape of your mouth and the back of your head.

You're so my kind
Erotic and divine
I gotta testify to how you purify

    My Interpretation

    Another song that is obviously about sex. At least this time the protagonist is not fantasizing about it like in 'Exit Wounds'. He's enjoying every last moment as they go on making love. And the protagonist actually thinks that he can redeem himself by having sex with her: 'So wash away my sins, give me catharsis! Re-magnetize my moral compass'. That's, of course, an illusion and a sign that the protagonist can't think straight anymore. He thinks she's absolving him from all his sins because she must be an angel 'I gotta testify to how you purify'. The strange thing is, he's asking her if she can feel his kisses, which might be a hint that he's totally aroused by her but she not by him.

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.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
