Transgressions are made while cowards convey with demon's ear, fixed and set to stay. While the statue awaits to be whittled away with a mock of a slogan hiding filth with fear. Never to learn, only to burn...and be burned. Branded straight through slate. Clear as common day. What shall be the mark to be made? When we crush it all to burn it down without sight, without sound. Not anything but a casualty forgotten in the ground. A simple shell, that's solemn still -- without sight, without sound. Go slowly cause at the moment things you'd never think you'd ever see are happening and you can't believe the hatred. Make a martyr, a pedestal with ribbons of slaughter. Feed the altar, stoke the fire it will take over. Ignore the cut...the skin will callus as well as interest. If all are reckless none is to profit, none is to win it. So who will pay for all the tears, all the lives, from either side? all the years, all the time of living blind playing "God Deciding?" Who will die next in line for the lie justified for the rise of sitting high playing "God Deciding?" And who will walk away from the rage and revenge? Inhumane consequence comes in time playing "God Deciding." And who will fall in line to arrive out of sight and out of mind?

    This song totally rocks. Probably my favorite HWM song, and it's on the alk3/hwm split. Once I learned how to play it on guitar, it never got old.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.

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.
