"Ladder In My Tights" as written by Karen Ann Poole, David Eriksen and Amy Jane Studt....
Just one more word and I'm gonna explode
I'm gonna self combust
I'm gonna blow up the word
With just one more look you're gonna
Cross the line
I mean over the edge
You're on thin black ice
Ooooh, there's a little bit of psycho in me
I confess
Why do you want to pick on me
And not the rest
Does it make you feel big
Does it make you feel clever
So tell me how's the weather

If I just had a littler more time
I'd get some duct tape and silverwear
Oh, if I just had a little more time
I'd show you

The world feels so much better when you
Find you don't fit
There's a ladder in your tights and
Who gives a fuck if whoops, you ain't shiny
And perfect
There's a ladder in my tights and
That's the way, uh huh, I like it
That's the way I feel about it
You'll be trying to hitch a ride with me
When it finally hits you

With just one more push trying to make me
Your clone
Marking me out of ten
For the label on my clothes
Just more more squack
And i'm gonna hit back
I'm gonna burn down your house
In a heated attack
Oooh, there's a little bit of devil in me
I confess
'cause you want to pick on me
And not the rest

If I just had a little more time
I'd get some C4 and dynamite
Oh, if I just had a little more time
I'd show you

The world feels so much better when you
Find you don't fit
There's a ladder in your tights and
Who gives a fuck if whoops, you ain't shiny
And perfect
There's a ladder in my tights and
That's the way, uh huh, I like it
That's the way I feel about it
You'll be trying to hitch a ride with me
When it finally hits you

Hey you will all be coming round
Give it time, let you find yourself
Hey free yourself from the crowd

The world feels so much better when you
Find you don't fit
There's a ladder in your tights and
Who gives a fuck if whoops, you ain't shiny
And perfect
There's a ladder in my tights and
That's the way, uh huh, I like it
That's the way I feel about it

The world feels so much better when you
Find you don't fit
There's a ladder in my tights and
Who gives a fuck if whoops, you ain't shiny
And perfect
There's a ladder in my tights and
That's the way, uh huh, I like it
That's the way I feel about it
You'll be trying to hitch a ride with me
When it finally hits you

    General Commentthis is such a great song!!!!!! i think every teenage girl has gone thru this at some stage- theres always all these perfect girls at school who never have anythin wrong with them and they constantly look down on you- even for the ladders in your tights. i think shes tryin to say that its ok to let urself go once in a while and not be perfect all the time. and the duct tape and silverware bit- thats just all the painful revenges you plan on these girls but never carry out

    General CommentSome of the lyrics are painfully wrong.

    >And lean over the edge< I mean over the edge.

    >And who gives a fuck if once you ain't shiny and perfect< Should be what, not once.

    >Mocking me out of town< Marking me out of ten

    >Just one more slap< Spark not slap

    I think this song is very similar to misfit, in that it's about someone who doesn't fit in but she ultimatley feels it's better to be this way and that she will fly higher. There seems to be hints of bullying and social exclusion, followed by fantasies of revenge.

    General CommentSo basiclly this song is talking about holding together when every one else is changing and being mean to you. Ladder in my tights is when you're worn a pair of tights for a long time and it starts to rip. It almost looks like a ladder, and only a few peices are holding it together... so, just a few peices are holding Amy Studt together.

    Just one more word
    And I'm gonna explode
    I'm gonna self combust
    I'm gonna blow up the world = if you say i look weird/ different/ stupid i'll kill some one!
    Just one more look
    You're gonna cross the line
    And lean over the edge
    You're on thin black ice = if you look at me like i'm a freak... one more time you're screwed!

    Oooh, there's a little bit of psycho in me, I confess
    Why'd you wanna pick on me and the not the rest? = there's physco in me because you pick on me!
    Does it make you feel big?
    Does it make you feel better? = the mean people are probably really insecure!!!
    And tell me, how's the weather?
    If I just had a little more time
    I'd get some duct tape and silverware = i'll kidnapp you and flippen kill you!
    Oh, if I just had a little more time
    I'd show you...
    Chorus

    Just one more push
    Trying to make me your clone = the mean people keep telling me to wear juciy couture and i'll be "in"
    Mocking me out of town
    For the label on my clothes = my clothes don't have a label, they're just cool
    Just one more slap
    And I'm gonna hit back = if you want to mess with me, go ahead!
    I'm gonna burn down your house
    In a heated attack = i'll ruin your life like you're ruining mine!!!

    Oooh, there's a little bit of devil in me, I confess
    'Cause you wanna pick on me and not the rest = don't pick on me, and i might be nicer
    If I just had a little more time
    I'd get some C4 and dynamite = moah ha ha ha (evil laugh)
    Oh, if I had just a little more time
    I'd show you...

    chorus

    Hey, you will all be coming around
    With the time that you find yourself
    Free yourself from the crowd, yeah = the mean people found themselves CONGRATS(sarcasm)!!! when you finally find out who you are you're going to come to me, and i won't befriend you... i'll just laugh at you, or say no way... you'll be crying i'll be laughing. Just because your nice to me now, doesn't mean you get vip tickets for all me concerts

    My InterpretationThe person who said that this song is similar to "Misfit" is right. It's about bullying like "Misfit" is, but it also talks about plotting revenge on the bullies that bullied her in school. I don't know if she actually carried out the revenge plots that she describes here.
