Apollonia
Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Fuck the computer
You're not a teammate on my team
So shut up
And now dreams
Look at the VCR TV
In the room
With white knifes
Air a VCR T3 of my own
So what now
Is that you want to marry me

Who cares
Now sit there
Sit there and stare
My God!
Who cares
Just sit there
Sit there and stare
Oh my God

Eighteen
Yeah she's my teammate XI3
And she's good
With white liars
Alot of bit your whole like TV
So shut up
And I dream
Look at the VCR T3
In my room
I look up
Laughing at you
Burrying me

Who cares
Now just sit there
Sit there and stare
My God!
Just sit there
Sit there




Sit there and stare
My God

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Team Sleep's song Apollonia are a series of seemingly disconnected thoughts and images that convey a sense of frustration and disillusionment with the modern world. The first line, "Fuck the computer," sets the tone for the rest of the song, implying a rejection of technology and the impersonal nature of digital communication. The next line, "You're not a teammate on my team," reinforces this theme of isolation, suggesting a deep sense of alienation from others.


The repeated phrase "Sit there and stare" suggests a feeling of stagnation or aimlessness, as if the singer is trapped in a state of inaction or boredom. The reference to "white knives" and "white liars" adds a note of menace, hinting at some underlying danger or violence lurking just beneath the surface.


As the song progresses, the lyrics become increasingly cryptic and inscrutable. The lines "Air a VCR T3 of my own" and "18, yeah she's my teammate XI3" are almost unintelligible, leaving the listener to piece together their meaning from the context of the song as a whole.


Overall, Apollonia paints a picture of a world that has become harsh and unforgiving, where communication is reduced to cold, impersonal technology and human connection seems increasingly difficult to achieve.

this honestly is my favorite team sleep song and its not even on a CD. Chino is amazing in this song, the synths are other wordly, and the lyrics are fucking insane. what more could you want from a 3 minute song

Bobson Dugnutt

not to mention what are probably Zach Hill's nasty programmed beats

TheLittlestBark

I CANNOT believe that this song was not on their release. I had a copy of the roughs they did for the album, and then "BAM." The album comes out and confusion sets in, because the best song didn't make the cut? Come on now. Thanks for putting this up.

Roberto Beroiza

Sid Cedillo
