Sitting by a Judas mantel
Underneath where I can't tell
Found the places I'm destroying
Only hoped you'd be there still
Could not find a way to be it
I don't even mind this time
Here wed like to get things over
Life love anything at all

And when the morning comes
Well sit here and when the atom
Breaks well just stare
And my life goes underground
And my life goes underground

Sitting by a Judas mantel
Underneath well I've been there
Could not right
The only pieces
Test out anything you will

And when the morning comes
Well sit here and when the atom
Breaks well just stare
And my life goes underground
And my life goes underground

Sitting by a judas mantel
Very well what we define
Counted up the broken pieces
Here we want to redefine
All dementia memory brought for
All the weakness we can't tell
Understood that I discover
Right here everything is well

And when the morning comes
Well sit here
And when the saddle breaks
Ill stand still
And my life goes underground
And my life goes underground

If I left it all the same well it
Doesn't mean that its
Not personal
And I never understood why the
Faces faded its so irrational
As the atoms start to phase and
I knew it couldn't mean that
Much to me
And I never understood where
The friends all go its
Not personal now

    this song talks bout the war i think pointing specifically to the atomic bomb that hit nagasaki and hiroshima "and when the morning comes well site here and when the atom breaks well just stare " thats a great part to justify my opinion also the my life goes underground part refers to the people who died on that day there lifes went underground (buried).I think the last part " if i left it all the same well it doesnt mean that its not personal and i never understood why the faces faded its so irrational as the atoms start to phase and i knew it couldnt mean that much to me and i never understood where the friends all go its not personal now" talks bout the people who made the decision to bomb and there thoughts before doing so

    I think it's "Sitting by a Judas mantle" and not "sitting by a Judas mental".

    I like this song!! Yeah, I'm one of the people who clutters this site up with meaningless responses!! But it is tempting to be the first one to comment on a song

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.

Dreamwalker
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.

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

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.
