Alone I walk, among the twisting shadows
Tempted by the ancient magic, the power of five
My desire to mirror my own image
And I will offer you no soul
Offer you no soul

Tonight darkness will shadow the light
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the fathers of time

Feel my hate, I'm banished to this wasteland
My serpents plot the overthrow of your temples and shrines
In the night, my army's rage
And fury burning my shadow into the land
Vengeance by my hand

Tonight darkness will shadow the light
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the fathers of time
Tonight darkness will shadow the light
Paradise denied, the balance of ages
Forever lost in time

Was I sure of my fateful wish to evoke the night from the day?
Thousands now join as one, be afraid
What have I done? Clouds are dimming
The sun with his wrath of disease and decay
This masque of vengeance leads my death parade
What have I done?
"My shadow burning, my shadow burns across the land".

Tonight darkness will shadow the light
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the fathers of time
Tonight darkness will shadow the light
Paradise denied, the balance of ages forever lost in time

"And there was a need for balance, the coming of ma'at"

    part 2 of new mythology suite

    This song introduces the embodied essence of destruction and chaos, Montu Sekhmet. He is the 'leader' among the 'demons' created by the power-drunk Atlanteans. He longs for the might and magic of the Atlanteans--the metaphysical Power of Five (in my personal opinion, some reference to chakras, sephirot, or a similar concept). He also feels deep hatred for the Atlanteans for casting him out for his taint (unclear whether he feels comradery for his fellow 'demons', or if he simply rallies them as a means to his desired end). He recognizes himself as the metaphysical counterpart to the balance desired by Ptah Khnemu and perhaps the Atlanteans culture in general (IDs himself as Ptah's counterpart and his army as that of the Atlanteans?). This seems more along the Hindu/buddhist lines of duality theory / ying-yang; however since the two leaders and their people are the personification of these concepts that adds the christian good-evil twist (vengeance and fury...). Perhaps the human-side of Montu is why he shows obvious guilt and remorse for the storm he has summoned--despite his deep sense of justification. "...and there was a need for balance, the coming of Ma'at.." The quote for this song brings in the next; a christ-like child comes in the world who's purpose seems to be keep the world from falling into total oblivion.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
