"Stumble" as written by and Peter Buck Bill Berry....
We'll stumble through the yard
We'll stumble through the yard
We'll stumble through the APT
We'll stumble through the yard

Force fields explorer racing home the ancient star
Yellow mixed with golden hue
Scan the graveyard dead there be

Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain

We'll stumble through the yard
We'll stumble through the yard
We'll stumble through the APT
We'll stumble through the yard

Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain

It was round about midnight, hipster town, imagine going for a walk
Things get around to taking place, it's not a waste of time
The rich got a little poorer
Things get around to taking place if they're going to happen at all
Don't need that jazz, don't need that stuff
It was round about midnight, hipster town
It was round about midnight, hipster town

Force fields explorer racing home the ancient star
Yellow mixed with golden hue
Scan the graveyard dead there be

Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain
Ball and chain, ball and chain

    General CommentLyrics do not speak to me in this song, but the melody does, I agree w/ "All is a Dream" and no idea what APT means, other than apartment. My only stab at the lyrics is "we'll stumble through the yard" could mean anything from a metaphor about stumbling through life as best you can...to some specific event - not sure.

    My OpinionI presume you mean the lyrics. Yes, the lyrics are garbage, and in the early days they were supposed to be, but I love the actual tune here. I love the distinctive, jangly guitar work from Peter Buck and the quality drumming from Bill Berry. The whole thing works for me and I love it! :)

    General CommentThese are not the lyrics to "Stumble" in any way, these are the lyrics to another song on "Chronic Town" album, called "Carnival of Sorts (boxcars)".
