"Annie" as written by and Turner/maida/lanni/taggart/coutts....
You're a little bit shy
A little too quiet
You're the mixed up girl
That everybody leaves behind
A little bit weird
A little too bright
But you just might be
That little bomb at their side
They'll pull your hair
They'll leave you wide-eyed
But did anybody wonder
What Annie might have in mind
Oh, no

There's something in the way she explains to me
"Please be careful, I exist in someone else's head"
Oh, no
There's something in the way that she makes believe
Please be careful
Annie dreams that everyone is dead

You're a little bit dry
A little uptight
You're the messed up girl
That every body tries to hide
You've had enough
They're too unkind
But did anyone consider
What Annie might have in mind
Oh, no

    General CommentI don't think that the song implies that she kills anyone but more that she is plotting revenge. The little bomb at their side, as in she's going to explode and she can't keep it in any longer.

    General CommentI love this song, our lady peace is so awesome. I think this song is about a girl who gets pisses off and wants to kill everyone. Similar to the way I feel a lot of times. Seriously, this song just brings a smile to my face.

    General CommentIt's just kind of a crazy girl concept. I don't think she actually kills anybody, she just thinks about it and is a little nutsi up top.

    *grin* This is my theme song!

    General Comment"Annie" was written a little bit before the shooting of Columbine...it wasn't meant to be about it, but it turns out to be. It's saying watch out who you are talking to and what you are saying because you don't know what kind of person they really are and what they are capable of.

    General CommentAlright, this might sound weird, but i think this song is about a movie. The movie is called in dreams. Its really weird because the song goes right along with the movie. The movie is about this Lady that sees how people die before they do. And the reason she does is because she sees through this killers eyes its weird once you see the movie i think youll understand seriously check it out

    General CommentActually, I read where Raine explained what this song is about, i think it was on their site... it is about a girl whos sorta being teased and the like and she begins to hate her classmates, and the singer is supposed to be sort of like a person who begins to be weirded out by her intentions and becomes kinda scared of her, almost trying to warn people of her intentions, but no actions happen in the song
