Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

not even fair to box away those old faces
not even close to the way it was then
when everyone would stay away from you
how everyone would stay away from you

and I don't remember
how just the way the water fell down there
could make you cry
half these embers flew away into the dry brushes
they were taken by the fire

that sound drifting off outside
there's and unlight drizzle going on

that sound faucets off
hang me out the window
no resolve
its all away

that sound drifting off outside
there's and unlight drizzle
going on

that sound faucets off
hang me out the window
no resolve

(that sound drifting off outside
there's and unlight drizzle going on)

for every piece of rice that falls another one falls in your shorts
eliminate the stasis burden, eliminate the stasis burden
if everyone was like lou rawls
then no more guys would sing with drawls
relax the goods, alright
relax the goods, alright




when everyone would stay away fom you
when everyone would stay away fom you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Team Sleep's song 11/11 speak to feelings of loneliness, isolation, and nostalgia for the past. The opening lines, "not even fair to box away those old faces, not even close to the way it was then," suggest that the singer is reflecting on memories that they're struggling to let go of. The next lines, "when everyone would stay away from you, how everyone would stay away from you," hint at the idea that the singer may have struggled with social isolation or rejection in the past, and perhaps longs for the way things used to be.


The next section of the song juxtaposes two different images: the peaceful serenity of falling water, and the violent destruction of a fire. The lines "I don't remember how just the way the water fell down there, could make you cry, half these embers flew away into the dry brushes, they were taken by the fire," suggest a kind of bittersweet nostalgia, as the singer is remembering a past moment of beauty that has been lost or destroyed.


The remainder of the song uses a lot of fragmented phrases and repetition to create a sense of confusion or indecision. Lines like "hang me out the window, no resolve, it's all away," reinforce the idea that the singer is feeling lost and uncertain. The last lines, "eliminate the stasis burden, if everyone was like lou rawls, then no more guys would sing with drawls, relax the goods alright, when everyone would stay away from you," seem to suggest a desire to let go of past pain and move on to something better. Overall, the song paints a picture of someone who is grappling with feelings of loneliness and nostalgia, but who is ultimately trying to come to terms with the past and move forward with their life.
