I am the baker
I bake the cake
Make no mistake
I like to bake
Once I discover
My innate behavior
To mix, to make, to bake!

Up in the morning
To start my work
I cannot help wanting to bake a dessert
Like a gladiator
About to meet his fate
I enter my arena
Bow my head and start to bake!

Yeah
You want a cookie?

Flour, Sugar, Milk,
I send out for more
An unsung hero I need no reward
A short vacation I’d like to take
After I bake a chocolate cake

Sometimes It’s mighty lonely
When you’re all alone
(With a loaf of bread)
But I’m just doing my job
The best that I can
So the children can be fed

(B!)
I am the baker
(A!)
I bake the cake
(K!)
Make no mistake, I like to bake
(ER!)
Once I discover
(BAKER!)
My innate behavior
(BAKER!)
To mix, to make, to bake!
(BAKER!)

(B!)
I am the baker
(A!)
I bake the cake
(K!)
You’re the decorator and you decorate
(ER!)
You take the credit
(BAKER!)
But I slaved away
(BAKER!)
I mixed, I made, I baked!

Flour, Sugar, Milk,
I send out for more
An unsung hero I need no reward
A short vacation I’d like to take
After I bake a chocolate cake

Sometimes It’s mighty lonely
When you’re all alone
(With a loaf of bread)
But I’m just doing my job
The best that I can
So the children can be fed

I own it - the doughnut
You want a cookie?
How about a muffin?

(B!)
I am the baker
(A!)
I bake the cake
(K!)
Make no mistake, I love to bake
(ER!)
Once I discover
(BAKER!)
My innate behavior
(BAKER!)
To mix, to make, to bake!
(BAKER!)

(B!)
I am the baker
(A!)
I bake the cake
(K!)
You’re the decorator and you decorate
(ER!)
You took the credit
(BAKER!)
But I slaved away
(BAKER!)
I mixed, I made, I baked!

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
