Susi war für'n Mädchen wirklich nicht schön.
Darum haben auch alle immer weggesehen,
und jetzt ist es zu spät, jetzt kann man nichts mehr für sie tun,
und jetzt ist es zu spät, jetzt kann man nichts mehr für sie tun.

Für die Jungs in der Schule war sie der letzte Dreck,
bei manchen allerdings auch Mittel zum Zweck.
Und für ein bißchen Zärtlichkeit ließ Susi alles zu.
Und für ein bißchen Zärtlichkeit ließ Susi alles zu.

Ihre Mutter war schon lange tot,
und der Vater nur im Suff.
Und nachts nahm Papi sich die Susi vor,
das war billiger als der Puff,
das war billiger als der Puff.

Susi suchte Hilfe bei,
den Lehrern und der Polizei.
Aber niemand hilft Dir, wenn Du der Abschaum bist.
Wirklich niemand hilft Dir, wenn Du wie Susi bist.

Und immer größer wurde der Schmerz,
da faßte Susi sich ein Herz.
Und so kam es so wie es gekommen ist.
Und so kam es so wie es gekommen ist.

Was Susi abends dann mit Vati tat,
nennt man gemeinhin Kastration.
Zündete ihn und dann die Schule an,
und stürzte sich vom Balkon,
und stürzte sich vom Balkon.

Wer glaubt, daß sie jetzt in Frieden ruht,
der kennt die Bibel nicht sehr gut.
Denn für Mord da gibt's bei Christen kein Pardon,
und in der Hölle wartete der Vati schon.

    I find the last verse of the song to be very troubling. It just makes it seem like no matter how badly you are mistreated in your life, you can't do anything about it and you can't get revenge... or at least, if you try to do anything, you'll go to hell. This is probably the only truly sad song die Ärzte have ever recorded, in my opinion.

No Surprises
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.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
