Poor mans love, the rich mans smarter
Brought to their knees about this girl
I said you were lucky and I meant you were lucky, yeah
All to come in the mystery
Clearly spoke hypocrisy
I said you were lucky and I meant you were lucky

Who do you love
Who do you sleep with
Who do you want
When you’re not with me?

You try and pray
You memorize the lies
What you had before, but you’re slippin’

Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had (had had)

Was it ever missed out

Oceans turn to drowning seas
We suffocated endlessly
I said you were lucky and I meant you were lucky, yeah
The more that I try not to care
Sick with worry and despair
I said you were lucky and I meant you were lucky

Who do you love
Who do you sleep with
Who do you want
When you’re not with me?

You try and pray
You memorize the lies
What you had before, but you’re slippin’

Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had

You better face it then
It’s devastating
You better face it then, or we’re gonna die

Then take your time
Better off without your record
So you’ve gone gone
Back home for your love, huh!
So far out

You better face it then

Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had
Where’s the love that you’ve had

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
