"Untenable" (formerly "Untouchable") is a song demoed by Weezer in 2002 during early recording sessions for the band's then-planned fifth album.

Appearances

Overview

Rivers Cuomo recorded initial demos ("Untouchable" and "Untenable") to an Olympus handheld digital recorder in 2001.[1][2] Following completion on the band's fourth album, Maladroit, Weezer immediately began work on a planned fifth album, recording new demos throughout the spring and summer of 2002. Two demos of "Untenable" were shared with fans on the band's official website. Ultimately, all of the demos from the aforementioned sessions were scrapped, and the band's fifth album would not see release until 2005.

Cuomo's original solo demos were released in 2020 as part of the digital compilation Alone VIII: The Maladroit Years.

Lyrics

Untouchable

Why are you so untouchable?
I want to show my heart is full
C'mon, just give me one small sign
That I'm not just wasting time

Dodging me with your wiles
Makes me mad for your style

I saw your picture on the wall
And read the words that no one saw

Dodging me with your wiles
Makes me mad for your style

Dodging me with your wiles
Makes me mad for your style

C'mon, just give me one small sign
Just one small sign
Just one small sign

Untenable

Why are you so untenable?
I want to show my heart is full
C'mon and give me one small sign
That I'm not just wasting time

Logic is a useful tool
When you live your life in school

Logic is a useful tool
When you live your life in school

C'mon and give me one small sign
That I'm not just wasting time
I read your pictures on the wall
And saw the words that no one saw
That no one saw
That no one saw
