Heard from the tv
of the latest bombing
the girls were dancing
she was coming of age

Shells fired out
flowers mowed down
Innocence targeted
whose god is this?
wish that she had one more day

There at the seaside
5th of december
we chased the tide
as her treausres
were gathered
i had to laugh
as she gave sand a bath

jangle jangle
jingle jangle
jangle and circle again

heard from the tv
of the latest bombing
the girls were dancing
she was coming of age

shells fired out
flowers mowed down
innoncence targeted
whose god is this?
wish that she had one more day

there at the seaside
5th of december
we chased the tide
as her treasures
were gathered
i had to laugh
as she gave sand a bath

jangle jangle
jingle jangle
jangle and circle again

jangle jangle
jingle jangle
jangle and circle again

jangle jangle
jingle jangle
jangle and circle again

jangle jangle
jingle jangle
jangle and circle and end

she was coming of age

    General Commenteven tho tori amos isnt the right age for this connection, i think tori was trying to relate to pearl harbor. this girl could be hawaiian and dancing and loving nature and being a lovely part of her culture, and then two days later after december 5 she is gone and how unfair war is

    General Commenti think regardemylasheskgm is right. it is about pearl harbour and how such a beautiful and peaceful place was wrought with war so suddenly. as well the "jangle jangle jingle jangle, jangle and circle again", i think refers to the japanese airplanes making passes and firing their machine guns.

    General CommentI also think the song is referring to other bombings and war; there weren't that many tv's around at the time the Pearl Harbor attack happened.
