A multitude of anger
Ring out vulgar tone
Obscenity fro your pride
To isolate small flaws

Down right inhuman
On the moral ladder
Escape the cutthroat pack
Another trend has passed

Ahead of the line of fools
Preach to stand above
To overcome a fault
Explanation for the weak
Envied idols die
Thru these eyes of a jealous mind
One more bottle of sin
For this aggravation

I've watched you lose your temper over small things
A spoiled child's things
Kill it all, kill the past, reunite for the final grasp of breath
A gun in the hand of loyalty, sound of the trigger
A child of betrayal
The temper of the times
Stepping out of this depression to exist

Man bound to time
Fighting to control
Even the most uncontrolled
Unbalance to extinguish

No blame or fingers to be pointed
Standards will be matched
Live by these words and act on them
The final note
The final antidote
To cause confusion among the masses

Surpass these people once envied
Resurgence of youth
Hating all these promises never kept
Broken hearts are for romantics
A dream of love for the dramatic

Untold form of resurrection
Another list to re-enlist...understand the way of life
Persistence will get word of reason
Pass on a once forgotten tradition in moral praise

The enemy within knowledge
Re-molding this integral persona
Wearing the guilt of dishonesty
Trying to keep sanity
Unable to grasp this skill

This lack of passion
One-night stands and master plans
Or have you really forgotten what it is made of?
Modesty covered with mediocrity
Stabbing its way to the heart
Giving up all the emotion in the world
To have some kind of satisfaction
Discipline, your natural selection, disposed of
Disloyalty to high to understand

The value of man declines once again
A loss of progress...for this conquest

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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.

American Town

Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
