Ween - What Deaner Was Talkin' About Lyrics




The wash is out
It's hanging up
And all I have
Is nothing
Nothing to do
Nothing to say
I think I must be dreaming

The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
I don't think I will ever return again my friend

If I was king
I'd wear a ring
And never hurt my people
I'd stay alert
And dress to kill
I might even slip you something

The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
I don't think I will ever return again my friend

The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
I don't think I will ever return again my friend

    Just like The Beatles, all of their songs are timeless <3

  7. Stuart Edwards

    This song feels a bit like George Harrison's post-Beatles music from the mid 70s.

  8. GP423

    Very underrated cut on the album, one of my favorites honestly

    tru sanchez

    The wash is out, it's hanging up
    And all I have is nothing
    Nothing to do, nothing to say
    I think I must be dreaming
    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend
    If I was king I'd wear a ring
    And never hurt my people
    I'd stay alert and dress to kill
    I might even slip you something
    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend
    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend
    I do not think I will ever return again, my friend [2x]

  15. Benj

    One of my all time ween songs for sure. I always applied it to depression but apparently it's about anxiety. Makes me tear up a little when I hear it.

  16. don edrien sagucio

    Fu k you all I love you

    SpoonRaccoon

    I love you too :)

    Jules Gilmour

    I couldn't care less about you two..

  17. Jonny L

    When I listen to this song, so do my neighbor's. 😂

  18. Joshua Anderson

    https://youtu.be/s8mP2jN6bJI is this like that pink Floyd thing I heard about?

  19. J.C. Small

    Absolutely love this song! It's hard to pick a top track from Chocolate and Cheese, but this one is definitely up there. The transition between this and "Don't Shit Where You Eat" leaves you feelin juuust right.

  20. CherrySunburst

    Ween quietly wrote one of the best pop songs ever here

  21. Arty Lenz

    Thank you!

  22. Berlin80

    I used to be 15 and live in Virginia. 1995.

  23. Frank Callo

    Always over too soon. I think it's a morning after tripping tune. Not necessarily acid/shrooms (But likley). some earth shattering revelation that resolves into some soft morning after; wash is out, hanging up. After the ecstasy, the laundry. I could listen to this a hundred times.

    Jeremiah Blum

    Always felt the same way, this song captures the morning after an epic trip like no other

  24. Thug Is here

    Hey anyone who reads this, would you like to discuss the album with me?

    Nef M

    sure. i think this is my favorite song. which one is yours?

    really dude

    Pretty much any Ween fan is gonna want to talk about anything Ween. Love this fan base

    C'mon man.. You've got takers..

  25. Efefea Gergerger

    The wash is out
    It's hanging up
    And all I have
    Is nothing
    Nothing to do
    Nothing to say
    I think I must be dreaming

    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend

    If I was king
    I'd wear a ring
    And never hurt my people
    I'd stay alert
    And dress to kill
    I might even slip you something

    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend

    The sun comes up and I'm all washed out
    Is this what Deaner was talkin' about
    I don't think I will ever return again my friend

    “Aaron wrote that song about me, it’s one of the many songs with our names in the title, ‘Leave Deaner Alone,’ ‘I Saw Gener Cryin’ in His Sleep,’ ‘Gener’s Gone,’ etc. But anyway, that song is about anxiety, before I even knew that the shitty feeling had a name to it. I used to have massive panic attacks in my early 20′s, especially in the morning, or late at night when I would have trouble sleeping, unreasonable fears about life, ridiculous, wild, horrible fantasy trips that ended in catastrophe. It’s an awful thing if you’ve lived with it and can relate. Aaron and I lived together back then and I would talk to him about it and he was very good at chilling me out. Eventually everyone experiences it at some point, usually before traveling, or before having to publicly speak, whatever. Acute anxiety is a bitch though, it means you live in a constant state of of panic, ‘fight or flight’ syndrome they call it too. Anyway, I guess Aaron got a good dose of it himself one day and wrote that song. I was able to overcome it in time by doing the work, a lot of reading, therapy, all that shit. It’s been many years now since I’ve felt that way, except in tiny doses, during times that would rattle anyone’s cage. Now I can spot it, see it for what it really is, and just let it pass. Let it pass man.”
    -Mickey on this song.

    Aaron Gasparini

    I love this song a lot, but I had no idea why I found it so relieving. For me, it's one of those songs that can stop the world, which is saying a lot. I looked at the comments and found this. I can't explain properly, but this makes me feel so good right now.

    Oxytocin 97

    Its such a great song! I'm glad Mickey explained it, I have constant anxiety and panic attacks but didn't know what Gener was talking about. I hope I can beat it like Mick has, I kinda doubt it tho.

    Heavenly Wells

    I had no idea.. I adored ween in my 20's.. in my forties I actually experienced a long-lasting array of panic attacks and knowing this song is about that bass it much more comfortable.. it was my party song in the twenties and my comfort song now in my 40s

    [???] erobe

    thanks, now i'm crying

  28. Le Carlton

    One of my favorites :)

  29. Mike Rudd

    I Tear up over this one, anybody thats been there knows, its hard to explain

    Nick Dameron

    Mike Rudd I know exactly my friend, I know

  30. King's Crossing

    This song boosts my anxiety when i listen to it.. but i want to

  31. Ryan Cepin

    definetely seems to be a description of trying psychadelics for the first time.. the sun comes up im all washed out this is what Deaner was talking about lol...

    daniel butler

    "I do not think, I will ever return, again my friend"----that feeling after a truly introspective trip, where you've "figured it out", and think you'll be good from then on out......only to sleep and wake up having forgotten.....I think some stuff stays with you for sure, but most of it must be realized sober to really grab hold

    daniel butler

    That's just my experience of course

    Tuan Jim

    +daniel butler
    To me, that line reminds me of the really intense parts of a trip where your sense of reality is so wildly altered that you can't imagine you'll ever be able to go back to your everyday mindset. I think this feeling causes a lot of bad trips sometimes, people thinking they're going to be permanently tripping and whatnot. But yeah, I agree that part of tripping is your sober reckoning with what you experienced/realized while tripping. I can definitely say that psychedelics changed the way I think, and the way I live my life and interact with people. It's something that is hard to even explain to someone who has never tripped. Just as, before I ever tripped, I would hear people telling me it's "life-changing" but didn't really understand what that meant until I experienced it.

    oxy 75

    Do you know ween? Lol

    @daniel butler I hate when iforget it.

  39. nona dorsky

    whoever the 2 people are that disliked this. i feel very sorry for you that you cant appreciate the uniqueness and inner meaning and all around blissfulness of music with such raw and rare talent as this

    by Daniel Chiotis

    +6laderunner we must. or they* will eventually group together and try to kill us.

    6laderunner

    Daniel Chiotis It's a Ween video, dude, not a revolutionary cause.

    oxy 75

    6laderunner I will dislike anyone that talks shit about this song or Ween!

    oxy 75

    nona dorsky the dislikes were just salty haters

  41. West Georgia Prepared

    Fucking jam up song.

  42. Fluffer Nutter

    fucking favorite.

  43. GnarVeg

    Hard to listen to this one sometimes

    Noah Dillon

    +blisterpacman Because it's sad and about making the decision to turn your back on painful stuff you can't fix.

    blisterpacman

    @Noah Dillon yes i agree

    Oxytocin 97

    @Noah Dillon I just listened to this after I woke up from sleeping all day with a lot of anxiety upon waking. I hate my anxiety and panic and how there isn't much to fix it. I cried for a minute from the intense feeling and thoughts. But Deaner is a badass, you wouldn't even know he had anxiety now. When he was younger it was more visable but even from his own account he's pretty much its master instead of the other way around.

    really dude

    Oxytocin 97 if you still haven’t mastered it quite yet I recommend trying a little bit of kratom. It helped me so much with my social anxiety and now I’m able to work longer hours and leave the house more and be social. I drink it every morning (for two years now) instead of coffee and I’ve had no issues yet. It also helps if you’re trying to quit addictive drugs and it’s not dangerous
