It's 8:03 and you woke up away from me
Tomorrow yet another worry
It's 8:15 and already you living in that stressativity
So soon your mind is blanking
Mind is spinning in complex with me
So give me your coffee, give me your cream
Give me your stress in everything
It's so easy to be blinded by animosity
Relax your eyes and sing free to be
Oh my child won't you sing to me

And if you think your life is under control
And if you think you're living under control
Cuz only the fool leaneth on his own
And so I sing to you with all my soul

Free to be without worry
No more worry
Yes I'm free, free to be
Without worry, no more worry

1..2..3 AM and the house is burning down
4 AM the I AM grain of sand I am
You woke me not to worry
Yeah you woke me not to worry
But what should I drink
What dhould I wear
What should I eap
Where should I sleep
Who gives me everything
He gives me everything
So burn house, burn house, burn down
Joshua's, Joshua's house burn down

And if you think your life is under control
And if you think you're living under control
Cuz only the fool leaneth on his own
And so I sing to you with all my soul

Free to be without worry
No more worry...
I need Your release to be in me
I need Your beat to be my release
You gave me that sea to remind me
Your peace Jehova won't you draw near me

    This song is explains itself pretty well in the title. Free to be without worry. God gives us all we need: food, clothing, a place to sleep ("What should I drink? What should I wear? What should I eat? Where should I sleep? He gives me everything"). God wants us to give all of our stresses to him ("Give me your coffee, give me your cream, give me your stress in everything"), and have no worries whatsoever. "Cause only the fool leaneth on his own". With God we are "Free to be without worry, no more worry". Very powerfull words, Pax 217 knows how to hit hard...

No Surprises
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.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
