I've got my eye on you
(One, two, three, four)

Uh, yo, I got the best lyrical flow, didn't you know?
Stool comin' through with imperial drones
I spit 'em outta my mouth, they gonna pierce through your bone
Until your toes back up, put your fist up your nose, yeah
The Ocean State making statements
Stay baking cakes in the basement
This the underground in your faces, face this
Providence be the base where we learn from the wasted, uh
And it tastes so buttery
Floatin' on the track like a schwasted Butterfree
I'm a locust when I rap, I got this rage up under me
And I'm cuttin' through the cypher with serrated cutlery
Yeah, I was raised a fuckin' G
A mangy sucker tryin' to keep it sucker-free
They late to cut him, so I stay above 'em, yeah
Never made for the underneath, no

And I'm just here for the ride (Here for the ride)
Here for a minute, I been steerin' my vision
Tryin' to clear up my mind (Clear up my mind)
Never fear what's inside
Let go, let go, let

Ferry me over the river, my liver's driftin' off
Don't know what I did, but I'm very sure I pissed him off
Now what's the problem with poppin' a couple suds?
And I think that I'll take a dip, but I'm feelin' a little wishy-wash
They told me swim with caution 'cause the fishes are vicious
The one with the bigger teeth will find the other delicious
The one with the bigger bank will take the other one's riches
Running, cutting balloon strings with the gold scissors
It's cold business, you know, six digits of O's to go
The physical toll is like a troll hit ya
If Folgers is the first thing in the morning
Then the second, third and fourth is a snapshot of the whole picture
If that's not enough get-up-and-go to go get ya
Turn up the ebb and the flow of it where your soul splits ya
I'd rather step out of the traffic, it's a slow jam
Now grab your oars and your sticks and you'll be the boatman

Yeah, I'm just here for the ride (Here for the ride)
Here for a minute, I been steerin' my vision
Tryin' to clear up my mind (Clear up my mind)
Never fear what's inside
Let go, let go, let

Pray those hands keep writing
I hope this head stays nervous
I feel the heat keep rising
Take a breath in the furnace

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
