Oh yeah

Walk me down to the wishing well
Help me find that miracle
Splash that holy water on me
Drown my faith in trinity, yeah
Oh yeah

Little by little, gonna get it, I swear
One more piece of the puzzle, I'm there
Gotta get lucky, gotta get that done
Little bit of luck never hurt no one
Come on take me down, down, down, down
I'm in a cold sweat
Lord don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
Mother earth's soul, yet

Oh yeah, yeah
Under darken skies
We'll see the light

Broken now I can't help but feel
Someone cracked the seventh seal
Nothing sacred, nothing left unturned
When nothing's simple
Then nothing's learned
So take me down to the virgin spring
Wash away my suffering, oh
Splash that holy water on me
Wash my eyes so I can see
Come on take me down, down, down, down
I'm in a cold sweat
Yeah, don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
In mother earth's soul, not yet
Lord I think I found, found, found, found, found
My mother lode, hey
Oh yeah
No, no, no, no, no, no
Yeah, down, down, down, down, down, down
Take me down, down, down, down, down, down
(Down, down, down, down, down)
Take me

    This song is about the movies Seventh Seal and Virgin Spring by Bergman. I think the chorus (Lord don't let me ... yet) is about the knights attempt to avoid death until he finishes his joyrney. Line "Nothing sacred ..." is probably about the Virgin Spring. Protagonists daughter was this pure and innocent thing that they defiled. So nothings sacred and he seeks redemption from the spring. At the end of song he seems to have found what he was looking for (I think I found..). But the rest of the lyrics are not too clear for me (wishing well, trinity, miracle). Any suggestions?

    i've always wondered what this song was about, from your explaination I understand most of it. Either way, it's a nice song.

    It's about baptism. Plain and simple.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
