I need the combination to unlock your code
I wish I could decipher your letter
guide me
test me
force me through these motions

we need you on set
we need you on set now
we're burning daylight
it's so far

broken bulbs
white flashes surround you
smashed plates and glasses haunt you

it's a simple method, that's true
I blame your sadness on you

    General CommentBurning daylight tells me that it could be about someone who is socially hindering himself and is asking for help. I love this e.p

    General CommentStunning...one of my favorites. I hope no Pinback fan goes without this one. I did for too long, yet when I found it my life's circumstances were in sync completely with the lyrics.

    General Comment"We're burning daylight" is probably a quote from the film The Cowboys (1972) with John Wayne.

    General CommentNot a meaning, but "Guide me, test me" kind of sounds like "Jackson, Jesse" from Cat Power's Nude as the news. Right.
