so i said i guess things are alright. sternly he replied, you just sit tight kid. one thing still bothered me, but i never did bother to ask. i couldn't figure out the words. expressions and words. they're nothing but letters. emotionally illiterate. severely inarticulate. i don't know how to tell and i don't know how to ask. but i'm alright. am i sheltered? am i trapped? was i saved and if so why? why did i get this chance? will i be able to use it right? i might blow up sometimes but you know things are alright. i might complain and bitch but you know my answer never changes. everything's alright. in the world you made i'm doing aok.

    General CommentThis song is about denying your true feelings, about keeping up the illusion of happiness. This need to mask one's true self comes from being taught to feel a certain way, of being taught taht some emotions are not okay to feel. Thus, the person in the song is repressed and unable to communicate how they feel.

    I can relate to this song more than I'd like to admit.

    General Commenti think this is one of the easiest cap'n jazz songs to understand and relate to
