25 or 6 to 4

Does anyone know what these lyrics mean? I've read them. Lots. Don't get it.


  1. Laura,

    The song is about the songwriter's inability to write a song. His writer's block is so bad that he stays up long into the night battling with it. Eventually he looks at the clock and sees that it is 25 minutes (or 26 minutes) to 4 in the morning.

    Believe it or not.


  2. Gosh... I feel so unfulfilled... although, now I know where to go for commiseration when I'm pulling an all-nighter on a paper.
