your sentry-men fall behind
your sentry-men fall behind
you're wasting my time like mini crosswords do.
you're breaking the line you just tripped over.
(every time) your sentry-men fall behind
(every time) your sentry-men fall behind

into the sunspots we like vanish away

you're falling in time like penny dreadfuls do
tripped over the line
that's 2 for flinching.

i'd pay anyone 20 bucks just to do that
Cause everything in this place is freezing except for the sound.
It's just a thing that I carry around.
cause, into the sunspots we like vanish away

saw your face in the mirror said 3 times.
...
i fly

    General Comment:The title is math. Rob Crow worked at an Arby's in SanDiego and that's where all the lines about boredom, crosswords and penny dreadfuls, and the freezing comment is about the cooler where Arby's keeps all their curly fries and whatnot, the fans in there are really loud and it's cold. Rob's manager once dared anyone 20 bucks to lick the puddle of red stuff right by the door.

    General Comment:no comments on this one yet? This is one of my fave songs that Pinback does. I'm not going to even hazard a guess as to it's meaning, but it's such a great song!

    General Comment:I agree. I like this song - but it's hard to figure out what it means. And also what does the title mean?

    General Comment:i think the line "saw your face in the mirror said 3 times" refers to bloody mary. not the drink, but the legend of saying bloody mary into the mirror 3 times.

    General Comment:I think its about boredom, and how people will do a lot to kill time. Even stupid shit. Stuff that people do when they don't know how to communicate perhaps. And he uses freezing in a very cynical manner. And the sunspots...hmm...could have something to do with little moments of awe, and happiness that fade away. Perhaps he thinks we live for that. and the rest is just a battle against stupid old boredom. Sorta got lost halfway thru this post but wateva xD
