Do you want to
Step to this? want to mess with this?
want to piss on this? You're on my shit
list. Did you lie to me?
Are you blind to see? I never ever
gave a fuck of what they thought of
me. How can I trust you when I know
you? Nothing meant more to me
than you. You took, I gave, your
breath - please save.
Now I see clearly
You'll pay for this dearly
Everything that I thought we had was a lie
What goes around comes around
Once lost now I am found
All of this hatred I focus on you.
I have nothing
You've given me nothing
And I
Thought we had something
To believe in
Deceiving
My point of view you don't seem to
like, these thing of you you don't like
to smile but you don't want to be my
friend. 'cause we are on again, then off
again, then on again, lets not pretend
that this could ever be. It can't - you see?
Now I see clearly
You'll pay for this dearly
Everything that I thought we had was a lie
What goes around comes around
Once lost now I am found
All of this hatred I focus on you.
I have nothing
You've given me nothing
And I
Thought we had something
To believe in
Deceiving
Nothing.

    this is the best song on the album without question. it's clearly about him being betrayed and left with nothing....possibly by a woman...

    i love this song. i'm surprised there are almost no comments. anyway, it's definitely about a breakup, and it's a really good breakup song if you've ever been in his shoes. it's really empowering rather than depressing, just like most of the darker side of nonsense.

    THIS SONG KICKS ASS!!!! My life right now. It pisses me off how people can pick you up and throw you down as long as it benefits them. Personally, I wouldn't give them the benefit of putting them on a shit list, but all of them can still KISS MY ASS!!!

    I think it could be about any relationship really. Whether it be a realtionship with a woman or a friendship. Either whatever the relationship, the general theme to this song is betrayal and deceit.

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"

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
