Erna P. döste langsam weg
Im Fernsehen läuft der letzte Dreck
Erna ist 80 Jahre alt
Sie trägt eine Jacke
Und doch ist ihr kalt
Sie weiß nicht warum
Dann kommt sie drauf
Es ist natürlich ein Fenster auf
Doch als die es merkt
Sträubt sich ihr Haar
Weil das Fenster vorher geschlossen war

Und Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

Jetzt sitzt sie da und ist ganz verstört
Hat sie da nicht ein Geräusch gehört
Sie nimmt sich zusammen
Macht das Fenster zu
Unterm Vorhang stehen zwei Männerschuh
Sie dreht sich um will Kaffee machen
Da hört sie hinter sich ein gemeines Lachen
Erna P. will Hilfe schrei'n
Doch niemand wird sie hören
Denn sie ist ganz allein

Und Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

Und Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

Erna P. wohnt Parterre
Und hinterm Vorhang steht ein Herr

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
“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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
