Pinch Me

My love for the Barenaked Ladies has been spoken of frequently, but this particular song of theirs has been rattling around in my brain for a few days now. I guess you could say it is speaking to me right now for some reason.

It’s the perfect time of year, somewhere far away from here. I feel fine enough I guess, considering everything’s a mess. There’s a restaurant down the street where hungry people go to eat. I could walk but I’ll just drive, it’s colder than it looks outside.

It is been a favorite of mine, and I think I like it so much because it is a perfect blend of humor and poignancy. Something that BNL is very good at.

Pinch me, cause I’m still asleep. Please God, tell me that I’m still asleep.

For me, it’s about using humor to get you through a shitty time. And that is something I can relate to in a real way.

On an evening such as this, it’s hard to tell if I exist. If I packed the car and leave this town, who’d notice that I’m not around. I could hide out under there. I just made you say underwear.

I mean really. Let’s talk about how insignificant we feel and then make an underwear joke. These guys are genius. How can you not love them.
