You keep on chiming, but I won't come in. I'm tired of your constant bickering'. Just can't leave well enough alone, bringing it out too many times 'till it's all dried up and used. But I've learned just one little trick. To always try to make the best of it. But there must be something that's more important, because you can't let it go, you just don't know what to do. You're strugglin' (yeah, you're strugglin')! How much longer is the world gonna hold you down. Strugglin'! Is it all in my head, or do you always frown. It's your problem, but I'm feeling used. I'm too old to take this type of abuse. I'm too fed up, 'cause you just sit there and stare. Always a fight, and now I can't take you out anywhere, without a problem either here or there. Your words, they pursue my feelings without a care. I'm telling you now, I won't take anymore. Here's some advice before I kick your ass out my door! There's way too many other fish in the sea. Your happy pants don't need to be hanging' around me. Just for fun, go ahead and try to walk out on your own. But soon enough you'll be back, to fill that empty space where the fight used to fill up the hole. Now you're pounding' hard on my front door. I snuck out the back, I don't need no more. I've got to get my head out of your mess. I don't deserve or desire to deal with the likes of you! No where to go, and no where to turn. Don't feel too good to receive the burn. But you'll move on to another guy, who's hopefully way too smart to give a crab a try.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.
