Angels
Smilin' on my happiness
Danger
'Cause the scene is still a mess
( We can all be blessed )

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

Spacecraft
Spinning slowly out of sight
Peace man
Keep on chasing the wrong guy
( We'll see eye to eye )

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

We' ve got the world looking in
Our window
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

Don't stop just yet
We' ve got the world looking in
Our window

    My Interpretation

    The Angels are television news anchors, the spaceships news helicopters. The lyrics are a snapshot in time:

    Police in riot gear raid an apartment with press in tow, only to find a young couple making love on the couch... Embarrassed cops realizing they got the address wrong and trying to shut down the news feed... A young man afraid of being "blessed" (shot)... News crew and TV reporters laughing at the colossal screw up...

    In the middle of it all a girl, realizing that she's on live to millions of people and that this is her "Andy Warhol" moment...

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Punchline
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.

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.
