Light flickers in my room
planes flying by
dropping down perfume
blanket out the sky
Wander through the smoke
Grabbing for food
Choking on the air
Might pass out soon


Why do I assume these things are bad, bad,
Burnt down, burnt down?
Bad, bad, burnt down, burnt down?
Why must all those pretty things be sad, sad,
Somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?

Sheep trip over the fence
(Sheep trip over the fence)
Scared animals trample over the bed
Siphoning out my will.
(Sheep trip over the fence)
And it might turn out just like they said,
And it might be even worse in here
Even now

Why do I assume these things are bad, bad,
Burnt down, burnt down?
Bad, bad, burnt down, burnt down?
Why must all those pretty things be sad, sad,
Somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?

It's up to the trees with the fire storm
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
It's up to the trees with the fire storm
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
It's up to the trees with the fire storm
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
It's up to the trees with the fire storm
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
Sad, sad, somehow, somehow?
It's up to the trees with the fire storm

It's up to the trees with the fire storm
[repeat, fade]

Even now...
[repeat, fade]

    General Comment:Unfortunately, THIS has to be my first post on SongMeanings.

    You people are thinking too deeply into this. The song is about getting high in the summertime. It is plain, simple, and extremely obvious.

    General Comment:Those piano notes are so beautiful.
    Because someone needed to state the obvious (my take):
    It's about a place, probably a small village, being bombed by airplanes. Although it sounds wrong, I like to think that the verse is sung by the person on the ground and the chorus is sung from the perspective of the person in the bomber, having doubts "Why do I assume these things (the target) are bad? Why must all those pretty things be sad?
    Hyperdrive sequence begun, hit it Pinback...

    General Comment:I think Kerze has the right idea. I interpret this song as turning something awful and making it beautiful. That even in tragedy, their is beauty. Thats what I take from it I guess.

    Very pretty tho. I love the instrumentals in this song. By far one of the best pinback songs.

    General Comment:I agree with kerze.

    sounds like some kind of war song maybe one of the members of the band pinback((whom are amazing)) had to experiance something like this or knows someone who did experiance some kind of bombing.
