Ping-pong
Sit and think for a while and you'll realize that you'll still die
If you're not thinking at all, I'm not sure why you're alive
Ping-pong

    General CommentI think the ping-poing thing has to do with the arguement going back and forth. You could THINK but you're still going to die anyway (therefore, it's pointless). But if you DO NOT THINK, then your life is pointless in the first place.

    PING-PONG! PING-PONG!

    General CommentThis song is so good. I hate how Sad Sappy Sucker is often overlooked. Isaac has more depth with 'ping-pong' and two lines than many successful artists will ever accomplish.

    And yes, if I'm not mistaken, Isaac plays accordion on this tune and several others off the album.

    General CommentYes. One of the Sad Sappy Sucker songs that I wish lasted like 3 minutes longer. With jamming. These lyrics are so good. Hit home for me. Sometimes I sit around and think "I could achieve everything I ever set my mind to in life and I'm still going to die like that smelly hobo over there." Which is true, but negative. And on the other hand, what's the point of being alive if you're not going to do anything with your life? Isaac Brock doesn't solve problems, he just addresses them. Which is really okay because it's the "the meaning of life" question anyway and no one has ever really gotten that close to the right answer there. Except Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, and John Cleese.

    General Commentto me this first part of the song talk about people who question what theyre going to d in their life and then realize its too late to have fun or they regret what they did

    and then the second part is about other people who just throw theyre life away and dont put thought into theyre actions its weird im sure isaac put much thought into this but it makes me feel good inside for some reason i dunno
    then the second part

    General CommentI think this song is Isaac's way of mocking people who go through life without ever questioning anything "deep" or "meaningful" or "cliche". I find myself constantly surrounded by such people.
