Pinback Lyrics


Pinback combine ethereal pop harmonies with tranquil
rhythms and beautifully hypnotic vocals. Marrying the
stylistic expertise of 3 Mile Pilot and Thingy this band's
music is extremely touching and dreamy.

In January of 1998, San Diego¹s Pinback was formed as a
part-time recording project by Armistead Burwell Smith IV
("Zach") and Robert Rulon Crow Junior. While 3 Mile Pilot,
Zach's previous band, had just fell into a long hiatus and
Rob was able to utilize some down time in his perpetually
busy musical schedule, Pinback was allowed More...

Review about Pinback songs
Great new song by a great Band......... PINBACK!!!! | Reviewer: Richard Hooper
    ------ About the song Proceed to Memory performed by Pinback

A great new song from the up coming Pinback Album "Information Retrieved pt. B". This song is just a sample of what Pinback has been creating for almost 15 years! I love their very unique style, and the fact that they are still more concerned with the quality over quantity!! One of my favorite bands!!!

    ------ About the song Penelope performed by Pinback

This song floats you in the aether. I get the same feeling from this song that got when I first heard Vapour Trail by Ride and Deluxe by Lush.
I really like the post from "Mythology". I think when you put your own interpretation on the lyrics it give you a deeper connection to the music. Its definitely not wrong.

Such interesting lyrics | Reviewer: tim
    ------ About the song Manchuria performed by Pinback

the first paragraph, love the way the voice sounds along with those lyrics, they fit in with each other.
They sent us into their machine
But that plane crashed into the sea
We float alone above the waves
Within a waterproof capsule

can anyone describe what they mean by this?

Ambiguous? | Reviewer: Brian
    ------ About the song Soaked performed by Pinback

I fail to see how lyrics can be ambiguous... the writer obviously knows what they mean to him/her, and that is why they wrote it. Thus a purpose, a meaning. The reader has the ability to interpret them any way they want to, but that doesn't change what they mean to the writer. This, to me, is the beauty of poetry, and the reason it thrives. Anyone who intends to interpret someone lyrics from a universal viewpoint loses any and all personal meaning they could have extracted from the lyrics. Try to think about things from your own perspective, rather than generalizing, and you will get much more meaning from music.

off by 50 | Reviewer: gina
    ------ About the song Off By 50 performed by Pinback

I believe this song to be haunting and straight from the soul of Rob Crow. Every musical project that he touches is golden. Pinback is an amazing band from California. I've seen them live 2x and I hope to add many more to tally. Off by 50 is very powerful and full of heart. I suggest that you check out the entire album and all of Pinback's catalog. I insist that you listen to some of Rob's lesser known bands!

Tied Up | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Penelope performed by Pinback

One of my favorite songs by Pinback. Just a note though, there is an error in these lyrics. The line "its a travesty" is incorrect. The line is "Is it Dropsy?". Dropsy is a common goldfish disease which causes the fishes to bloat up to the point where their scales stick out. Not only am I a huge Rob Crow fan, but I also worked in an aquarium store for 5 years. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. :)

amazing song. | Reviewer: Tarae

gold fish | Reviewer: ROB
    ------ About the song Penelope performed by Pinback

its not about a girl on life support! its about his gold fish! his gold fish died when someone dropped pizza in the fish bowl. you people are too damn deep. have you ever heard of a girl with red scales? i think not.

"Don’t wanna see you floating upside down
On the top of the bowl when I
Come round to visit you
Don’t wanna see you floating upside down"
