It's gonna bite today
(Right)
To open a can of pain
(Wrong)
Sun scorched and blistering
(Run)
Do you know that it's all
(Gone)

Kiss my eyes shut to bash it in
It's just another payment
To how we live, how we dream, how we breed
Low rent up in the basement

The sky conforms to the surface
What's the purpose, everything is worthless
I feel a crack in the structure
It's time bleed through suffer

And I fall into myself
(And I fall myself, I fall)
I fall, I fall, I fall

Life keeps on pushing me under
(I am)
Ripping my whole world asunder
(I can)
Death is what keeps me in motion
(Will I)
Drown in this pain like an ocean

I'm falling down again
(Now)
Into the ground again
(Low)

Don't tell me what to do when I take you
And I'm gonna make you
You had in a moment what the rest of us
Need to believe isn't hopeless

Take a look at the scoreboard it's 1 nothing them
So I guess you need move more
We'll make a crack in the sun
If it feeds you the answer

And I fall into myself
(And I fall myself, I fall)
I fall, I fall, I fall

Life keeps on pushing me under
(I am)
Ripping my whole world asunder
(I can)
Death is what keeps me in motion
(Will I)
Drown in this pain like an ocean

All in my head but the waiting is over
Your thoughts can't tread into my disclosure
I'm just a face, nameless and silent
I'm such a waste that's why

And I can't erase I'm feeling all this
And I cannot frame and hide behind this

(Pain)
I did it one more time for you
And now I'm falling down again
(Pain)
I did it one more time for you
And now I'm falling down

(Pain)
I did it one more time for you
And now I'm falling down again
(Pain)
I did it one more time for you
And now I'm falling down again

Life keeps on pushing me under
[Incomprehensible]
Ripping my whole world asunder
[Incomprehensible]
Death is what keeps me in motion
[Incomprehensible]
Drown in this pain like an ocean, kill

    Really good song. I get the impression its really deep and painful but i have only a slim idea of what it actually means..

    It has a really awesome negative vibe and depressingness about with out actually being shit and emo. His voice sounds nuts.

    What do you guys actually think its about?

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
