You pray for the sheep
I get closer to hell
I stand on the hill
And then I run down
I look in your eyes
You look for your price
You beg me to stop
But I was never that nice
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind
We'll stick to the plan
The fall of man

You pray for the sheep
Look forward to hell
Go live on the hill
No one comes down
I look in your eyes
You look for some teeth
Like nickels at night
Left under the sheets
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind
We'll stick to the plan
The fall of man

What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know
What you don't know won't kill you

    this is a creepy song, and i love it for it. i like to think it's about organized religion sort of clouding peoples' minds, leading them in the wrong direction--and ultimately to the fall of civilized society and all mankind.

    I think you're on to something there, but I don't think it has to be religion - feels like it could be anything that seems to sweep the world and trap people in ignorance. Awesome song - what a chorus!

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.
