"Mr. Noah" as written by and Noah Lennox....
This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

Here comes the loaf again
Drip a lot, drop a lot
Become an oaf again
Trip a lot, trip a lot
So wide to the other side
Shuts an eye
But he stays like a stump inside
Hey, hey, hey

Here comes the loaf again
Drip a lot, drop a lot
Become an oaf again
Trip a lot, trip a lot
So wide to the other side
Shuts an eye
But he stays like a stump inside
Hey, hey, hey

This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

Upon the gusts he glide
Brittle mind, gentle mind
Toward a bigger sign
Every time, every time
So much for the safest vibe
Tossed aside
But he burns like a blaze inside
Hey, hey, hey

Upon the gusts he glide
Brittle mind, gentle mind
Toward a bigger sign
Every time, every time
So much for the safest vibe
Tossed aside
But he burns like a blaze inside
Hey, hey, hey

This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

This dog got bit on a leg
He got a really big chip on a leg
Don't want to get out of bed
Unless he feels like it's justified

    Song MeaningOk, here's my interpretation: (it's pretty vague, I'll have to listen to it another million times to fully realize it)

    "This dog got bit on a leg
    He got a really big chip on a leg
    Don't want to get out of bed
    Less he feel like it justified"

    -something bad happened, (This dog got bit on a leg
    He got a really big chip on a leg) and he doesn't want to get up to try again, what's the point- I'm not yet sure about the justified part.

    "Here comes the loaf again
    Drip a lot, drip a lot
    Become an oaf again
    Trip a lot, trip a lot"
    -not sure about the loaf and the drip, but the "Become an oaf again
    Trip a lot, trip a lot" part sounds like he's making a bad decision (becoming an oaf) and messing up again and again, (Tripping a lot)
    "So wide to the other side
    Shuts an eye"
    -it's so far to a goal, "shuts an eye" could mean a change in perspective.

    "But he stays like a stump inside"
    -even with a changed perspective, he still feels dead inside, like a tree stump.

    "Upon the gusts he glide"
    -pulled by whims and outside forces,
    "Brittle mind, brittle mind"
    -an unwillingness to change, this correlates to the "Stump Inside" line

    the tone of the lyrics change drastically in this part of the verse.

    "Toward a bigger sign
    Every time, every time"
    -this is a pretty easy part, (or so i think) the bigger sign is a divine message that he tries to reach, again and again,
    "So much for the safest vibe
    Tossed aside"
    -with this sign/ goal as his destination, he abandons the familiar and safe things to reach that goal,
    "But he burns like a blaze inside
    -he's on fire now, straining towards his sign/goal, full of fervor and passion for his cause.

    the apparent theme of this song, and many of his songs, in continuing and, despite repeated failures, pushing forward.

    this is all my opinion, and I'm most likely very wrong about a lot of the meanings in this song.

    lastly, when I say "he" I don't necessarily refer to Noah, I'm using it as a general term, but as the song is titled "Mr Noah", I assume that it's about him.

    I hope that this all makes sense; what do you think?

    General CommentThis is an amazing song... I'll try to decipher it later... i just want to say that, in the past year, events have happened in my life, and right after each one, i would hear a Panda Bear song that I haven't heard before, and it would completely relate to my situation. I won't share everything, because it's personal, but here's 2 instances:

    I had just learned something shocking about a girl that I really, really liked. this information caused me to not like her, in a painful way. the next day, I heard "Last Night At The Jetty" for the first time.

    This one is even better. The first time I smoked weed, I wanted to pack a lot of experiences into my first high, which included listening to songs from my favorite artist. I go on youtube, and what should I find? Yup. Cosplay. that was practically a religious experience.

    There were other, more personal experiences that corresponded to me finding/re-appreciating more of his songs, including "You Can Count On Me" I know that this song will apply to my situation, as I've been writing this I've been trying to decipher the lyrics and they're already connecting. :) Panda Bear Bliss :)

    Also, we share the same first name, so there's that.
