Princeton Review
Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I liberate
I liberate the cold inside
Camouflaged
But is it all same guy, same guy?

There's a bad scene
Worked up and sterilized
There's a black seed
Chocked up and burning

Unfamiliar, unremorseful
That's the way you were
Don't want to bring it up again
That's the way you were
Oh, well

You raise questions of me
You haunt sections of town

Unfamiliar, unremorseful
That's the way you were
Don't want to bring it up again
That's the way you were
Unfamiliar, unremorseful
That's the way you were
Don't want to bring it up again
That's the way you were

Be this or not I know I don't understand
How this is appropriate
Be this or not and no we don't understand
How bad at debate we are
And so we freeze
And so we freeze
And so we freeze
Be this or not I know I don't understand
And so we freeze (How this is appropriate)
And so we freeze
And so we freeze
And so we freeze
And so we freeze




And so we freeze
And so we freeze

Overall Meaning

The song "Princeton Review" by Team Sleep is a heavily abstract and figurative piece that is open to individual interpretation. The opening lines express a sense of liberation from inner turmoil, represented by the "cold inside." The following lines, "Camouflaged, but is it all same guy, same guy?" can be interpreted as a question about the singer's identity and whether they are truly free or still trapped by external expectations or societal standards.


The next stanza shifts to a darker tone, describing a "bad scene" that is both "worked up and sterilized." This could be a reference to a corrupted or toxic environment that has been sanitized to hide its true nature. The mention of a "black seed" that is "choked up and burning" implies the presence of something sinister that is being suppressed or ignored.


The final stanza repeats the chorus, focusing on the phrase "unfamiliar, unremorseful" which could be describing someone who is detached or apathetic to their own past or actions. The lines "you raise questions of me, you haunt sections of town" suggest that there may be someone in the singer's life who is questioning the singer's character or behavior, causing them to feel uneasy and unsettled. The final lines are a repetition of "and so we freeze," implying a sense of being stuck or unable to move forward.


Overall, the song seems to be grappling with themes of personal identity, societal pressures, and the struggle to reconcile one's inner and outer worlds.
