Listen up everyone there's something wrong
We got the answers in our sights now
But somehow still we struggle along
Looking for solutions in a threatening sky
But we never get an answer

Just a chorus of voices wondering why
We're stuck here without a peaceful day
It's a promise in the night I'll be okay
The superlative is telling me that help is on the way
Won't someone tell me how will I make it through today
Looking towards the future and all I can see
Is the next generation looking back

With pity on me
Hunting for some insight or mean to change
But do we have the will to or will our
Future look the same

How can I live when you won't let me in
How can I die without reasons why
How can I laugh when I want to cry
How can I go on with nothing nowhere
How will I make it

    It's pretty much an anthem for people who wonder where their big break will come in life

    This song reminds me of better days, this is the album and song that made me want to form a band, and we did later on, As They Fall, we only got a couple of vinyl ep's in the early 2000's but whatever this is about a way better band. Old school melodic hardcore punk at its finest and the content of the lyrics, I can feel Jason's pain up to this day, even at 31, my life has been messed up with a skate(ironic) accident that has had me on the opiate painkiller rollercoaster aggravated when the very few girls I loved in my life broke up with me "how can I live, when you won't let me in..."

    I want this song to play at my funeral. Pennywise from 1991 to 1997 = some of the best music ever, straight ahead is very meh, lacks the usual anger from Pennywise, Land Of The Free is awesome up to My God, so a great half album that should have been an EP, From The Ashes, maybe 2-3 songs worth my time, The Fuse was okay, not anything terrible on it, yet nothing extraordinary, Reason To Believe, horrible production!!!! what the fuck was that, some good songs in there but they're ruined by this shit production. Now I love Ignite but he shouldn't have sang on a Pennywise album.

    Jason was Pennywise's soul, like Jeff Hanneman was to Slayer. I'm hoping whatever they got cooking now with Jason back in the band, if its their last album, they better listen to Full Circle and previous albums, they managed to rape ass without Jason on Full Circle, although I imagine some of the material on it was written by him.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."
Album art
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.
Album art
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.
