I live on a small street, with very small shoes
But in a big house, with a big wardrobe
I've got the whole world in my hands
It's a small world after all

And there's not much to say on five bucks a day
And there's no other way, so we're just hanging around
For the weekend to come
We're all hungry and dumb for Friday

So yeah, I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
We look like animals seven days a week
I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
I'm too polite and maybe you're too brief

Please don't press that we dress
High heels and loud shoes are a mess
Step out with quiet feet
And now I'm pleased to meet
Meeting is so hard to do when you're dead

So yeah, I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
We look like animals seven days a week
I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
I'm too polite and maybe you're too brief

Between a wink and an earthquake, there are conversations
And complications go on, on, and on

I pretend that I understand
My hands and the rest are only a test
To be paid to be pressed
When we end, we will be softly kissed

So yeah, I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
We look like animals seven days a week
I feel electric, pink in the cheeks
I'm too polite and maybe you're too brief

Yeah, what'd you think that I would be feeling?
Electric pink...

I live on a small street
Stepping out with quiet feet

    General CommentI think that they might be singing about being... cross dressers. HEAR ME OUT - Electric pink - feminine. Big wardrobe - women have big wardrobes. High heels and loud shoes - well, you figure it out. To be paid to be pressed - whores? I dunno... if only words could talk.

    General CommentThere obviously has to be a meaning to it, why else would they write a song about it? "Take the song for what it is..." Hmm, wouldn't that be saying, "take the song for its meaning?" Duh.

    General CommentI think they are singing out being young in a country as relatively privelaged as America as opposed to countries that are worse off.

    General Commenti think what he is singing about is how the world is all the same. everyone lives on a small street (compaired to the world) and everyone has very small shoes ( by shoes he means that one person is just one person) and everyone has a big house and a big wardrobe and junk... and when we look at oursleves were just animals... and even tho we dress loud, evryone is quiet... well tahts my interpretation of the song...

    General Commenti think it could be about cross dressers...

    i also think it could be about how we all work our patooties (hehehe-patooties) off for a bit of money ("there's not much to say on 5 bucks a day") but how good the weekend is and how we have to live our lives to the max ("meeting is so hard to do when you're dead"),

    i also think it could be about living for the weekend, going out and flirting (". Between a wink and an earthquake there are conversations and complications") instead of acting like mindless animals to earn money, or something.

    i dunno!!

    General CommentThe chorus is totally about sex.
    I feel electric= horny
    Pink in the cheeks= a vagina
    We look like animals 7 days a week= having sex
    I'm too polite= he lets the girl get off
    You're to brief= the girl gets off (or pretends to..xD) before he can and then they're done.

    with very small shoes but in a big house, with a big wardrobe.= maybe he has a small penis, but he has other things that compensate for it.

    step out with quiet feet= leaving after a one night stand or trying to leave in the morning without being noticed, and
    loud shoes are a mess= kind of like leaving quietly.

    man, my friend had the chorus for this song as an away message and his sister was like "STOP HAVING SEXUAL AWAY MESSAGES!" It amused me.
