Golem II: the self-perfecting
Lie-rejecting
Human mind correcting

Totem of the living
Self-organized, wrought from the clay
Our king by night, our slave by the day

Giga-giga-gilgamesh

What do you know?
Watch the human life show
OK let's go

O my double
He can pop your bubble
That means trouble

Stronger than a lion
Golem II: the bionic paper boy

Self-perfecting
World-inspecting
Lie-detecting

Our instructions
His induction
Big production

Golem II: the bionic puppet boy

Giga-gilgamesh
Gigagigagigagiga
Beast of burden

Spirit lifting
Master of shape-shifting
Seamless drifting

Shining spotlight
Screaming mobs and stage fright
You get it right

Building a new zion
Golem II: the bionic vapour boy

War-directing
Mind-inspecting
Man-correcting

Our instructions
His induction
Big production

Golem II: the bionic vapour boy

    Quoting Trey:

    "Golem 1 is simply 'the Golem,' the disturbing story of a superhuman clay homunculous that is brought to life Qabalisticaly in the Jewish tradition. Often this heavy tale is framed in the context of a children's story. Golem II is a Sesame Street/Muppet Movie style treatment of the the subject of Artificial Intelligence and the 'old' Golem's counterpart in the modern world - a growing mythic reality coming ever closer to the surface."

    Thanks, bunglefever.com.

    My Interpretation

    The way I see it, the Golem seems to evolve throughout the course of the song. (Paper -> Puppet -> Vapour) and his description evolves the same way. He gets stronger, more secretive (master of shape-shifting), and more controlling as he advances to the point of scaring the people he was created to protect. I see this as a commentary on the growth of government.

    "Our king at night and slave by the day". I think that it's talking about dreams and how the sub-conscious when interpreted properly is trying to lead people to be better people but I don't know.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Amazing
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.

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.
