Reprehensible Lyrics

Artist: They Might Be Giants
Album: Long Tall Weekend

Each night I lie awake
Completely alone
A voice is calling, and I tremble
For it's not my own
My own
I can't ignore it
Although I try
The intrusive whisper fascinates me
Here's why
Here's why

The secrets gather 'round as the voice recites
The secret history of my immortal soul

Indestructable
Indefensible
Reprehensible
10,000 years of unerasable acts
And permanent facts
The record of my
Unspeakable crimes
In previous lives
In previous times
Indelibly stains
The pages of history

Indestructible
Indefensable
Reprehensible
Night after night a voice recites my misdeeds
And puts me to sleep
But tells me that I
Won't remember a thing

When morning comes at last
I rub my eyes
Remember nothing and thinking
Only of my plans
My plans

The world is spinning 'round and I'm on the top
And nothing in the world can ever make me stop

Indestructible
Indefensible
Reprehensible
10,000 years of unerasable acts
And permanent facts
And only I know
Who's responsible
Indefensible
Reprehensible
Me.

I think this song is about reflecting on our regrets. Everyone does it and blows their past misdeeds way out of proportion. The kinds of embarrassing things probably no one else remembers... It's "previous lives" and "previous times" because we change and become different people repeatedly in our single lives, but even when we're done remembering old shames and ready to take on the world again, we make new mistakes.

Listening to this pointless regret exaggerated and sung in such an over-the-top manner makes it easy to laugh at, if we could just laugh at it when that voice comes back to berate us.
