If you start to make me feel drained
Want to wash me like I was stained
Would you first look at yourself
And ask that question?

There was something that came to my head
Something like I thought you were dead
Could it be I'd go to hell for thinking that?

Naked emotions spill through your eyes
Swallow your tongue, you're ready to cry
She becomes a machine at the moment of failure

And I'm on the edge
Little boy
You hide instead
Little boy
You ask me if I am real
And I'm left explaining your fucked up deal

Let me address the hate in your skin
Suddenly now you're dropping that grin
Let me tell you you're fighting me for no good reason

It seems like I've dissed you before
Easy enough for such a manwhore
You better run with your dick between your legs

And I'm on the edge
Little boy
You hide instead
Little boy
You ask me if I am real
And I'm left explaining your fucked up deal

And I feel no pain
Then you ask me if I am strange
Do you want to walk this way?
Did you ask me if I could play?

You punch me again and again
Like some sucker in a movie
I don't think you know what you're doing to me, man
You know what?
One of these days I'm gonna get up
And punch you in the fucking face

There was something that came to my head
Something like I thought you were dead
Could it be I'd go to hell for thinking that?

And I'm on the edge
Little boy
You hide instead
Little boy
You ask me if I am real
And I'm left explaining your fucked up deal

And I'm on the edge
Little boy
You hide instead
Little boy
You ask me if I am real
And I'm left explaining your fucked up deal

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
