BI-POLAR BEAR

Combining the phrases “bipolar disorder” and “polar bear,” Scott Weiland arrived at “Bi-Polar Bear,” which he wrote after he and his wife Mary Forsberg were diagnosed with the condition. Wondering if there was something in their brain chemistry that was causing them to be temperamental and impulsive, they went to a psychiatrist who confirmed the diagnosis.

Weiland refused to take medication for the condition, thus the line, “Left my meds on the sink today.” The video appears on Thank You DVD as a photo-shots series, the band playing in tour in USA or around the world and with the song playing in background. “Bi-Polar Bear” was also performed occasionally, after the band reunited in 2008.

Combinando las frases “trastorno bipolar” y “oso polar”, Scott Weiland llega con “Bi-Polar Bear”, que escribió después de que él y su esposa Mary Forsberg fueron diagnosticados con la afección. Preguntándose si había algo en la química de su cerebro que los estaba haciendo temperamentales e impulsivos. Ambos acudieron a un psiquiatra que confirmó el diagnóstico.

Weiland se negó a tomar medicamentos para la afección, de ahí la frase: “Left my meds on the sink today.” El video aparece en el DVD Thank You como una serie de fotos, con la banda tocando en una gira en los Estados Unidos o en todo el mundo y con la canción sonando de fondo. “Bi-Polar Bear” también se tocaba ocasionalmente, después de que la banda se reuniera en 2008.

So I’m letting it go again
I’m halfway full on

Left my meds on the sink today
My head will be racing by lunchtime

Don’t sleep behind the wheel at the stoplight
Can’t sleep behind the wheel as you’re driving home
You keep coming down the hill as you’re falling
You keep falling from the hill as you’re coming down
Can’t sleep behind the wheel at the stoplight
Can’t sleep behind the wheel as you’re driving home

So I’m holding her hand again
My palm sweats
Hold on
Think I’ve had too much coffee
I’m manic as hell
But I’m going strong

Left my meds on the sink again
My head will be racing by lunchtime
