For ages now
I've often faced the fear
It's hard to see
Old memories are clouding my mind
It's beyond this life
I know the secrets are within me
Wonderin'
In a world of broken dreams
Depressed and haunting me
No way out
So many times it's hopeless dark and gray
No way out
And other times it's hope that saves the day

Many moments of my life I pray tomorrow
Inner peace will find its way and set me free

There's a light beyond the dark (darkest day)
There's a light beyond this life
And painful memories will all wash away
Painful memories will all wash away

No longer struggle with the fear of
The end and what's beyond
I live a life of loyalty
True to myself and my own

The way out
A sea of life so peaceful and serene
The way out
The path of life lies open wide for me

[Chorus]
Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind
Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind
Many moments of my life I pray tomorrow
Come join the path of glory
At last eternal peace will set me free

Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind
Come join the path of glory
Release me set me free

    I think it's about the christian vision of life, life after death, and about faith giving you strength.

    I agree with mortiferus here, to see from the eyes of a hero! The christian thing doesn't sound right to me. Still, amazing song!

    Hmm... think about it. Path of Glory is a term used by Christians to describe their lifestyle and such. It's basically a song about the Christian way of life and how faith gives you strength etc. I think it's awesome D&W plays a song about the darker side of religion with Poor Man's Crusade then breaks into this song. Honestly, if songs in church sounded like this I might actually attend.

    What is Hansi's religion??? He writes songs like Another Holy War and Poor Man's Crusade, but at the same time writes Path of Glory and Precious Jerusalem. He DOES confuses me o.o'

    If you take the song in context with the entire album it almost seems more intended as a claim christians make to indoctrinate people into their blood magic doomsday death cult, however, on it's own it seems more like a song about finding your own free, whatever that is, inner peace will find it's way and set me free!!! The song never once talks about that being God or Jesus. Glory has many definitions and I don't think the song is only meant to be interpreted one way

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.

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.
