i thought you would be, insane at 23. now, i'm that weirdo screaming on the train. you're setting fires inside my head. i'd like to believe you. it's not arson, maybe just a warm goodbye for me. it's cold inside my heart, cold, dark, and crazy. sweater weather for you, and straightjacket weather for me. head down, hands tied, dreaming only of you. who can rescue me from this padded room? if i got my mouth on some cyanide, or a shotgun, maybe i'd survive. head down, hands tied, dreaming only of you. who can rescue me from this padded room. and out get-away car is parked outside. i'll ride shotgun, baby, you can drive.

    General CommentTo me the lyrics are talking about a crazy person. The padded room is not a mental institution, but his own mind. The fires are him going crazy over this person and the last 2 lines are him talking about the other person coming to rescue him from the fires that that person set in the first place.
