She used to be a fragile baby in a Golden place
But now it seems her acid visions have come and changed
That face she says
I�m hallucinating
Queen in my pictures
She�s drawing demon clusters on her stucco walls
And hanging all her clothing from her mothers ceiling
I�m hallucinating
Queen in my pictures
And all the handsome fellas used to want to hold her hand
But now she�s finding it hard to find a loving man
I�m hallucinating
Queen in my pictures
I met her recently upon a swollen Nile
She spoke to me with ???? disconnected rhyme now
I am hallucinating
Queen in my pictures

    General Commenti dont necessarily interpret them the same way as you, but to go along with yours...maybe "i'm hallucinating" means, he feels like he's hallicinatiing because she has changed so mcuh?

    who knows...these songs are all great, and make you think about it when you try and decifer them

    General Commentreally? is it well known? ive never heard anywhere about them using acid, i just figured it could be a possibility

    i did hear an interview where they said that they have never recorded or played live under the influence, but yeah probably when they're kicking back.

    General Commenthaha well thats a lie

    i smoked a joint with deakin right before the show…

    "I'd say acid was the main catalyst for our music getting weirder and weirder," says Weitz.

    theyve said in plenty interviews that theyve done it before and learned from it

    of course panda bear didnt wanna smoke cuz he said he didnt wanna be a vegetable on stage so maybe theres a little truth to that

    General Commentthis is such a cute song

    everyone looks so down on drugs
    because they change you
    and nobody really thinks if its for worse or better
    maybe i'm wrong but uh
    my friends still look great to me.

    i'm reaaaally jealous of zoombiniss.

    General CommentI always thought the lyric was "now she can't seem to find an honest man."

    This song is awesome. I love the vocal harmonies and the layers of guitars. I think this song comes from a really centered place lyrically. To me, its a beautiful and broken story about a girl who has basically lost her mind and/or soul, and has become a shadow of her former self.

    General Commentsince this site is meant for interpreting lyrics, ill do so

    this song is about a girl who used to be very popular, and everyone wanted to be with her, then she did a bit too much acid and became a bit insane and dissconnected from the world. she looks back at the way she used to be, she used to be queen, but now theres only a queen in her pictures of her before she did acid. im not sure about the last verse, maybe the girl convinced whoever is supposed to be speaking to be to do acid and now hes hallucinating?

    cool lyrics

    but why the ?????

    General Commentwell its well-known that animal collective does a lot of acid, so it makes sense they might write a song about it. and they do say acid

    "but now it seems her acid visions have come and changed that face"

    and it is the girl talking about hallucinating
    "she says I’m hallucinating "
