Panda Bear - The Preakness Lyrics




How much is riding on it?
How much is saying I quit?
We've all been here some day
Yours might be a den to sleep in
Mine is just a way of being
I'm not here to pass on a judgment of passion
I'd like just to say to keep up
Keep it up until the day you've got what you want
I see that we are reared in a similar way
Try to figure it out
See your hopes become my hopes
Is there no hope?

    How much is riding on it?
    How much is saying I quit?
    We've all been here some day
    Yours might be a den to sleep in
    Mine is just a way of being
    I'm not into passing
    On a judgment of passion
    I'd like just to say to keep up
    Keep it up, keep it up, keep it up
    Till the day you've got what you want
    I see that we are reared in a similar way
    Try to figure it out
    See your hopes become my hopes
    Is there no hope?

    Thanks always Noah.. <3

  3. Tyler Evans

    I Feel like a get a taste of Heaven everytime I listen to this. Therefore, I listen to it religiously, or rather, more Spiritually.. <3

  4. Josie Rylands

    Google just told me that The Preakness is an annual horse race for three year-olds. Now I'm just imagining toddlers racing each other on ponies to this track - it fits really well

  5. Space Bender

    I just realized this is a song to horse.

  6. Megs W

    i've been obsessed with this jam lately and just discovered this version. it's amazing both ways, but the EP take's racing beat propels his vocals and hurls them into the atmosphere. a god spinning and throwing a beam of light like a discus.

  7. Indran Fernando

    this is the better version imo

  8. its gary baby

    i this better than the other one

  9. ras jvon

    none of these sound like church hymns.they are just him

  10. Ballet Roses

    The high note always gets me. 😩

  11. Mr._Otis

    This really made me feel like there is no hope. Compared to his most recent finish on this song.

    +GameP0N3 As in...you hated the new version? I love it. It feels kinda Danny Elfman, surprising kid soundtrack.

    edgar enriquez

    +GameP0N3 he's trying to appeal to a greater audience (the party crew at live shows)

    Mr._Otis

    @edgar enriquez this was the one I found better because of how much it fit with tomboy when I first heard it.

    Mr._Otis

    @Lauren Davies I still found it entertaining but I just found the tomboy version better. Sorry.

    Lauren D

    @GameP0N3 Was just curious.  I like both versions, but think I prefer the quickened tempo of the newer one.  Love Tomboy tho.  Lovely/strange.

  12. Mantra Monsieur

    There's no church hymn with such a mindblowing background. Every detail makes the song better.

  13. Teddy Keezer

    lots of smile-era brian wilson influence going on here.

    Avey Tare

    You should check out Van Dyke Parks if you're not already familiar

    Tyler Evans

    @Avey Tare meant to pick up Van Dyke Parks record at a record trading thing down here in Alabama (the record thing was in Gardendale specifically). Had just been through a really really really big Brian Wilson kick (hard to turn that kick off.. lul) thanks for what you do btw man, you and the team are really something special and I feel so blessed to have you in my head all time, both solo endeavors and as the collective. Just, too much thank you to even express Avey. Peace brother..

    Tyler Evans

    Even if you arent the real Avey Tare I still felt compelled to share these statements of love and appreciation. I know I'm crazy, I dont really mind, it's what keeps me here I think. Peace and Love to all, I sure wish the whole world could just hug each other or at least know we are all here, Together.. <3 need more respect and understanding, but that's the everyday struggle. We just try our best to keep each other going. And that being sad, the real Avey Tare or not, thank you brother for sharing your love.. and sorry for my ramble, it's a thing I got to work on i think... xD Peace

    An open mind/imagination+Panda Bear= a late afternoon in the sunshine

  16. ennikleinad

    I enjoy singing church hymns

  17. dylan helmut

    LSD + Panda Bear = a proper evening

  18. dylan helmut

    best panda tune of all

  19. The Drooze

    Harmonies?

  20. portraitphenomenon

    whoa wiiiie! is this a new one from panda bear? nice! lovely!!!

  21. Mossy McCombs

    @Wwhackk You make it sound bad. Church hymns have such a power and conviction behind them, it makes you feel things even if you don't believe them. To shoot for a sound like that is an admirable aspiration in my mind, and I respect Panda all the more for it. Besides, from the interviews i've seen with him, it seems one of Panda's great influences was singing in a catholic choir as a kid. Only makes sense eh?

  22. occocooccoco

    @TheNotoc or the way he doesn't sing

  23. Rogue Aura Studios

    @Wwhackk I think it just has a lot to do with the way he sings.

  24. Alexander Kanakis

    This is a good song no doubt, but I'm wondering why the majority of his songs still have that church hymn sound...

    Brendan Black

    Maybe because he was inpsired by them?

  25. leurbantoaster

    Love it
