Our Ride to the Rectory
Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It comes and it kills
Cruising the earth
Attacking your towns
As you watch from outside
And no one felt crashes in your hearts

There's another way
Any other one couldn't stop the fingers from freezing
Until you're driven half awake
All you ever want
Safe inside the covers and freezing
Alive?

And no one felt anything at all
Protecting ourselves
As you watch from outside
And everyone's thrill
It crashes in you heart

There's another way
Any other one couldn't stop the fingers from freezing
Until you're driven half awake
All you ever want
Safe inside the covers and freezing
Drove so far away
No one would ever stop
Couldn't tell the difference between them
And then you struggle under quake
Hope you never stop
Hope you never finish breathing

How does it feel to clip the patient on the wing feather?
Where does the pain stop and the tearing trough begin, if ever?
Temperature lock down, way consumed
Froze in a block with a blazing view
Tazing the numbers
One through two




Fit in the standard size
Without

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Team Sleep's song "Our Ride to the Rectory" are cryptic and open to interpretation. The song deals with themes such as alienation, fear, and the desire for safety and comfort. The opening lines, "it comes and it kills/Cruising the earth/Attacking your towns/As you watch from outside" suggest an impending danger that is out of our control. The feeling of powerlessness in the face of this threat is captured in the line "no one felt crashes in your hearts". The repetition of the phrase "watch from outside" reinforces the sense of detachment and isolation.


The chorus of the song offers a glimmer of hope, suggesting that there may be "another way" to deal with this danger - perhaps by seeking refuge "safe inside the covers and freezing". However, the repetition of the line "hope you never stop" suggests that this safety is temporary and fleeting. The final stanza of the song introduces a new set of images, such as "clipping the patient on the wing feather" and "temperature lock down". These images are obscure and difficult to interpret, but they contribute to the overall feeling of unease and uncertainty that runs through the song.

These lines may be expressing confusion and despair about a medical or scientific process, possibly involving freezing or preserving something. The end result is something that fits parameters or standards, but it may be cold and lifeless
