should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep?
should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep?

they set their scales up so high
you'd think they'd fall from the fuckin sky
and i can't sing the words that i don't know yet
i don't have the words

should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep?
should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep?

(down down)
i'm already down with that (already down)
i'm already
half asleep, but i can't close my eyes till i get home

should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep? (i lie awake, for now)
should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep? (i lie awake, for now)
should i take a bath, or should i go to sleep? (i lie awake, for now)
should i take a bath, or should i go o sleep? (i lie awake, for now)

(down down)
i'm already down with that (already down)
i'm already
half asleep, but i can't close my eyes till i get home

they set their scales up so high
they set their scales up too high
they set their scales up so high
they set their scales up too high
they set their scales up so high
they set their scales up too high
they set their scales up so high
they set their scales up too high

he sounded so lonely
he sounded so lonely
he sounded so lonely
he sounded so lonely

    General Commenti always have this dilemma. :[

    but is the meaning so obvious?

    General CommentMy idea is that within these sort of trivial decisions we face everyday lies a sort of despair and ennui that we have to suffer through and the lamentation of the high cheerful expressions that the world wants us to put on. As someone who suffers with depression off and on I can definitely relate to the tone of this song deeply. These simple yet direct lyrics are part of the many reasons why Pinback is my favorite band.
