"Indecision Time" as written by and Mould....
Questions like a candle that's burning at both ends
Never find an answer that fits in your plans

Back and forth, between the good and the bad
It's indecision time
You're so natural, you're so free
So don't decide what's best for me

Nothing in your life is ever going on course
You wonder if living could be much worse

Back and forth, between the good and the bad
It's indecision time
You're so natural, you're so free
So don't decide what's best for me

Go to the left, go to the right
Your mind is going to keep you up all night
You twist in your sleep, grabbing the sheets
Sweating to death

Sucking on pollution like a rattle in your mouth
You're a big fucker kid, you don't know what you're about

Back and forth, between the good and the bad
It's indecision time
You're so natural, you're so free
So don't decide what's best for me

Tell me about your fellow man
You wipe their shit all over you hands

Back and forth, between the good and the bad
It's indecision time
You're so natural, you're so free

Go to the left, go to the right
Your mind is going to keep you up all night
You twist in your sleep, grabbing the sheets
Sweating to death

    General CommentWow no comments... At least I'm the first one \m/. This song is amazing. The album is obviously about a kid who escapes from a broken home as his parents get divorced and the fighting is bad. My parents have gotten divorced twice, and I was a witness to domestic violence at a very young age so I can relate to this song but that is neither here nor there. In my opinion Bob is painting a verbal picture of what this causes you to feel like inside with all the hate, rage, and confusion that is caused by a more then broken home. He nails it especially with the chorus "back and forth between the good and the bad it's indecision time, you're so natural you're so free, so don't decide what's best for me, go to the left go to the right your mind is gonna keep you up all night". What he means by that is to anyone who hasnt gone through this or perhaps the parents, they cant relate to the rage that is stuck inside due to the dysfunction, divorce, or the violence, or perhaps the discomfort of going between households, and never feeling truly at home anywhere. Anyways that's just my opinion. Favorite part is the ending "now you know how it feels". It feels exactly like it sounds lol. Hüsker Dü rocks :)
