Up, up, and away. Ball Point Man's come to save the day.
I've got sass and savvy pack flash by the paragraph
I'm more novel than War and Peace
I fight beasts armed to the teeth on the daily
My pen is my sword and thank Lord never fails me.
I remember back in the days of my youth
When I used to run around on the block with a few friends
Nickers and Kickers and stickers on our Big Wheels,
Mindtricks and Kung Fu grips was the big deal.
At nighttime we'd fight crime defending civilians
Mounting extra sensory offences against the villains by the millions
No defiance to our allegiance cause we instilled fear,
Jimmy quit, Joey got married, but I'm still here

I've got my head in the clouds but I'm grounded.
This superhero steps to the pavement and I pound it.
Hounded by the sound of unfounded speculation
By authorities around to confound the population.
Now most host ghosts, I propose to break the shell.
The coffee shop cop rides in to dispel
These visions of cathedrals from a shopping mall,
And philosophy from a bathroom wall.
And so I strike without hesitation, the forces had to yield
To my devastation my notebook is my battlefield
I roam tomes of zones where spirals spin around
And I can leap a metaphor in a single bound

I'm biding my time
I'm biding my time waiting for a sign to be sent to me
To unleash the power of my secret identity,
But until that day I will stay for the time being
Incognito laying low with my rhyme scheme
Well Shazaam! I Marvel like the captain
At my inopportune impotence in the face of distraction,
Inaction makes me a good guy also-ran
So I battle Black Mantas in the bathtub like Aquaman
Minions of evil heed this tirade
It's a parade of polemics and I love a parade
So I ride into the sunset with the money and the girl
But in my spare time I still save the world

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
