Ever Since WW1
Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You waste your life making film
Through the frames
You revealed
The screen goes down
The tape runs out
Or the machine ceases
To operate
She'll team up
With our parade

We watch all the tapes push pause
And wave over and over at the screen
The frames go down
The tape runs out
Or the machine ceases
To operate
She'll team up
With our parade

We watch all the tapes push pause
And wave over and over at the screen
The frames go down
The tape runs out
Or the machine ceases
To operate




She'll team up
With our parade

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Team Sleep's "Ever" point to the concept of the fleeting nature of life and the idea that we cannot escape mortality. The lines "you waste your life making film" suggest that we constantly record and document our lives, but all these memories can be lost when the tapes run out or machines stop functioning. Additionally, the line "she'll team up with our parade" could refer to death joining the procession of our lives as we ultimately move towards our end.


The repetition of the lines "we watch all the tapes push pause and wave over and over at the screen" drive home the idea that we have a tendency to hold onto life's memories and dwell in nostalgia, while ignoring the inevitable passage of time. The song suggests that while we want to hold onto our memories, it's important to accept that nothing lasts forever.


Line by Line Meaning

You waste your life making film
You spend your life creating movies that ultimately won't last forever


Through the frames
By capturing moments on camera


You revealed
You brought to light what others may have missed


The screen goes down
The movie ends


The tape runs out
The footage comes to an end


Or the machine ceases
The equipment breaks down


To operate
To function properly


She'll team up
Someone will join in


With our parade
In our group gathering


We watch all the tapes push pause
We watch all the recorded moments and pause at the significant ones


And wave over and over at the screen
And reminisce over and over again at the memories we've captured


The frames go down
The captured moments got less and less


She'll team up
Someone will join in


With our parade
In our group gathering
