Picture this drunk as shit
On a pirate ship
In some shackles in the brig
With a couple cracked ribs thinking
Son of a bitch
How'd I get in this sitch
Oh yeah, rum and a witch
How could I forget
See I had made a deal to never really reveal
The X marks the spot but fuck what they thought
I am what they're not
I'll take the whole pot
Leave 'em all to rot
And come out on top

Alright, escape plan is night
The ship creaks and sighs
I hide from the light
The keys on his side
I had to take his life so I could take flight
And end this tonight

I made it to the sand on a moonlit night
Saw a shadow of man so I knew I had to fight
I wait for the lull
I braced for the pull
Of knife against knife and skull against skull

Sail off I'm high again
Stuck on our island
Skeletons are all that I know
Send help, my time will end
I'll light that torch again
Goodbye to the island glow
Yo ho

Well ahoy there
Shiver me Timbers and scurvy soup
I caught you swimming to shore up in my pigeon coop
So may you tell me what the hell you think you're doing here
And may you tell me if you got some extra food to spare
'Cause I been stranded left here barehanded
I was feeling hungry, fuck that, I'm famished
Give me all you got I won't cause no damage
I know that you're here for my gold, you're red handed
They call me Tandy, Randy? No, Tandy
Tandy's getting pissed and 'bout to get handsy
About to lose my shit a fucking chimpanzee
This island is my home and now you trespassing
Spill your guts and spit the truth out
Are you a friend or a foe, I'm a bloodhound
Your choice, you can sleep deep with Davey Jones
Or I can place your skull upon these crossbones

Sail off I'm high again
Stuck on our island
Skeletons are all that I know
Send help, my time will end
I'll light that torch again
Goodbye to the island glow
Yo ho

A mí nadie me derrumba
Porque yo vengo del mar
Mi voz con fuerza retumba
Soy hija de Yemayá
Vine a prender esta rumba
Con aguardiente y mezcal
Traje flores pa' tu tumba
Este ya no es tu lugar
Por ti ya nadie pregunta
Tu nombre lo olvidarán
Tu nombre lo olvidarán
Tu nombre lo olvidarán
Vete lejos, vete lejos
Vete sin mirar pa' atrás
Vete lejos, vete lejos
Vete sin mirar pa' atrás

Sail off I'm high again
Stuck on our island
Skeletons are all that I know
Send help, my time will end
I'll light that torch again
Goodbye to the island glow
Yo ho

Sail off I'm high again stuck on our island
Skeletons are all that I know
Send help, my time will end
I'll light that torch again
Goodbye to the island glow
Yo ho

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.
