A lonely maiden stands
Bound to the obelisk
As she tugs and pulls
And tries to twist

Shackles slice her virgin wrists
Blood now covers her tiny hands
How does thou receive this fate?
She asks of her own mind

Purity, innocence, encourage death
Life... gone is mine

I also ask of you my lord
Thy god in heaven
For I understand the error of mans ways
But of creation and the seven days
When was created the murky haze
From which the beast has risen

Fail me not my master
For this is your creation
Your son the bastard
Leviathan

Blackness, dripping stench
Unrelenting vice
Vile embellishment
Transcending pure evil

Standing now before her eyes
Wings expanding...she's going to die
Belching blue green fire
Flesh feeds the desire
The serpent gods apocalyptic smile

Come to me my demon brother
Of us both and our fathers
A failure of creation ... abomination

    My Interpretation

    The song is about a virgin maiden who is taken captive and chained to an obelisk. She is to the dinner of a Levithan which is also known to be a giant sea monster. The first 4 sections of lyrics are the maiden blaming God for this fate while the last 2 are when the Leviathan appears to take the maiden. The last 3 lines of lyrics of the song I don't really understand.

    Thats my interpretation.

    I think its about the Devils child who is a demon and his fate is to kill a virgin and he hates it somehow it revolves around God and the seven days...

    This song is based on "The Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes, a great book that i recommend to all.

    This song is more from the maiden's point of view, as she struggles to accept that she is doomed to become the meal of this beast, the Leviathan.

    Sorry this ain't nothing about the Thomas Hobbes Book. The book and this song have nothing in common

    Yep, this is about the Leviathan as previously stated. Although it's more through the eyes of the maiden then it is about the Leviathan itself. Anyways, great ass song.

    "For I understand the error of mans ways But of creation and the seven days When was created the murky haze From which the beast has risen" There she blames god for his failre during the creation and asks him when and why this haze was createt from which leviathan was born i guess so completely maybe it's about how got makes failures too or how he could let this happen if he is truly so good.Also she's saying that this thing is not her fault but though she has to carry out the consequence of gods failure.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.

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.
