A cool quarter to two
In a messed up room
I'm watching you
Curl into corner
Close to dream
That I doubt's about me
Quarter to three
Still not asleep
But I haven't been this tired in weeks
Got my mind all tied up
Alive in a line up again tonight
True trauma for me is drama for you
I'd read you both rolls if you'd just roll over
You tell me you're blue
You're just confused
It's that you haven't been this happy in minutes
Happens every time
Haven't eased your mind yet
Time to try
Why lonely light
A lifetime of bad nights
What are you talking about
Everybody wants to see that face out
True drama for me is trauma for you
And I'm some fool
For acting so bruised
When I tell you I'm blue
I'm just confused
It's that I haven't been this happy in minutes
And I fight to get beat
Or in a better mind
Retreat
Why lonely light
A liftetime from the sidelines
What are you talking about
Everybody wants to see you shine
Sad eyes what are you talking about
Everybody wants to see that face out
True drama for one is trauma for two
And I'd like to thank all of you
I'm still trying to get it all right and
I haven't been this happy in minutes

    This song is about people who spend too much energy acting blue. They seek attention by acting down and depressed. Don't try to act cool like a CK heroin model, everyone wants to see you shine

    I think song is about the hell that comes with being a band, and touring, the whole shpiel. It's difficult and can be very lonely. but they know it's what they love and would never choose anything different.

    i think this song is about really liking someone and having them not like you to the same extent, or like you just for "kicks" or w/e you want to call it...i guess im really not sure...but it could also be about someone who is depressed all the time, and another person always trying to cheer them up and get them out of depression...i guess u could read into this one in a few ways...its such a sweet song though...definate quality

    i think this song deals with someone who has fallen in love with another person....and they are down because once they were EXTREMLY happy...they wre brought down by the realaity that the other person didnt feel the same.

    people never know how they really feel and often overlook a good thing. when you're used to events never going your way, it's hard to have a positive outlook. i guess

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
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.

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.
