At the age of 15 I watched my dad get beat down
Billy clubs and black jacks filled the night time sound
Billy clubs, a concussion was the rule of law
Billy clubs start swingin here's a broken jaw

A cried for 2 weeks while I watched my dad suffer
He said try to be strong be a man for your mother
My dad grabbed my hand and said son this is drama
Get out into the world and cause some BLUNT FORCE

Get out into the world and cause some blunt force trauma (x2)

Respect, intellect, style, finesse I address
The facts of this case I confess are a mess
I argue my case with a man, judge and jury
Hold my fist in the air with defiance and fury

Rumble, tumble, fight and fall
As fast as I mumble
Line em up, sign em up
Send em out to the jungle

To digress in duress lend an ear for an ear
Hamper my progress with envy and fear

Get out into the world and cause some blunt force trauma (x2)

What do you see
A man defending his home and a scared family

Boricua I am for the rest of my life
Latino in blood for the rest of my life
Never in life have I seen such cold trauma


Get out into the world and cause some blunt force trauma (x2)

For the rest of my life...

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
