Pedro The Lion Lyrics


Pedro the Lion is kind of like the Lemonheads in that they
realease album after album, yet the lineup rarely stays the
same for long. When they released their first album, the
"Whole EP", in 1997, Pedro the Lion were David Bazan, Nick
Peterson, Tim Schiefer, Travis Smith, and Brian Olson.

Eventually, all but David and Nick left the group. David
played bass for a while, and after they released a limited
edition acoustic 7-inch with Blake Wescott, Nick left and
David joined up with Johnathon Ford of Roadside Monument.
Together they More...

Reviews about Pedro The Lion songs

Love this song. | Reviewer: Sara
    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

Being a paramedic/firefigter, this song really speaks to me in both its literal meaning and other. I definitly like that he puts it all down in real terms, he doesnt embellish the lyrics. It is what it is, life ends eventually. I see it every day. This song has, in an odd way, helped me.


Great song. | Reviewer: David
    ------ About the song Bad Diary Days performed by Pedro The Lion

This is a really good song, although short, the point is a given. Obviously He found out she'd been cheating on him, but was too unsure with himself to accuse her of it.. that is until she started acting weird. Then yeah.. just another road to breakup. Great song though.


my two cents | Reviewer: Flossy
    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

I never usually bother to read comments on anything I listen to or watch - but I did this time... and now I must join in.

Firstly - I think this is just a beautiful song. It's .... harsh and soft and melodic and unsettling and comedic and meloncholy all at once.
As everyone is saying (and it's pointless of me to say -) it's open to interpretation - but I like the parody pointed out by "joshuaquintana" - wouldn't it be lovely to be told the truth once in a while.
but lyrical crap aside - it's still a really moving song. I really like how quietly empty it is - and I'll probably listen to it till I'm completely sick of it.

    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

It is a great song. The way I see the song, because David is a christian, I think he might be trying to bring up the point that the whole purpose of a Christian is to spread the word of God, die, and go to heaven, but people do as much as they can to postpone that.

Thats what I hear. I love the song.


big trucks | Reviewer: oh you know
    ------ About the song Big Trucks performed by Pedro The Lion

This is such a great song, the meaning behind it is that you can't let yourself think that the world revolves around you. Everyone else has problems and you need to respect that. Also to elaborate, you should expect to be treated the way that you treat others. (i.e. the trucker getting in the way and the trans am flipping him off.) If you decide to flip someone off or ditch somebody or anything like that, expect it to happen to you somewhere along the line.

    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

Well now since these comments have become as useless as youtube.
I agree with nathan that, "interpretation is up to the listener."
To me this song is about faith. It is ironic that the paramedics offered the dying man more comfort before he died that the priest offered his congregation. A "who is the real hero" kind of song.

    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

Anyone can interrupt any work of art how they choose. I'm not a cynical art critic, nor am I all about everything being art... but with music, interpretation is up to the listener.


Uh, Steve... | Reviewer: John
    ------ About the song Priests And Paramedics performed by Pedro The Lion

Steve, there is so much more to this song than the fact that the man dies. It's the circle of hopelessness in the man's life, and the priests life, and everyone else. That fact is we're all going to die, even though we work so hard and spend so much money to avoid it. The hopelessness is not at all realized.


I love this song! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Diamond Ring performed by Pedro The Lion

This song was on a mix a friend gave me for my 24th Birthday and I absolutely love it. Call me a hopeless romantic, but thia song speaks to my heart. A definite must in any music library.


Poison of life | Reviewer: joshua pace
    ------ About the song The Poison performed by Pedro The Lion

This song, although slow and done with a single guitar, speaks volumes about pain in life. D. Bazan seems to have experienced much of it. It's easy to believe that he understands the rough spots in life. I particularly like his desciption of hell. Anyone who has been through a major breakup can testify to the validity of his analogy.
