I see no signs of life
I see no easy cure
No cause for rejoice
No free or easy voice

Is there no one that can save us from today?
Is there no one that can save us from today?

Music keeps you under control
Fashion dictates your role
Religion keeps you down below
This, this I know

Music keeps you under control
Music

Is there no one that can save us from today?
Is there no one that can save us from today?
Is there no one that can make this go away?
Is there no one that can save us from today?

Is there no one?

    When he mentions "music keeps you under control", it can be interpreted as good or bad. But I think he's talking about it being a postive thing, considering he's a musician himself. And music really does keeps us under control, in a sense, because, like Snog's and a handful of other bands music, it gives us the "real deal", if you will. It's honest, which keeps us from being ignorant of the things going on around us... As opposed to some candy coated pop star singing about how good a relationship is.

    I guess the only thing I can say what this song is about is that... society controls our every emotion, every action, anything. And we can't do anything about it because there's "no one who can save us from today", we're all so caught up in the society that's making this happen that we don't do anything about it ourselves.

    "Music keeps you under control" describes the media as a drug which keeps us complacent in regards to doing something aout our world. Much like Heroin, TV or Xanax - would you rather sit at home popping pills or watching tv or listening to SNOG(R) or go out and fight to change the current oppressive system?

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
Album art
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.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
