[Bird] Lady?
[Lady] Yes, bird?
[Bird] It's cold
[Lady] I know
[Lady] Bird...I cannot see a thing
[Bird] It's all in your mind
[Lady] I'm worried
[Bird] No one will come to see us
[Lady] Maybe they come but we just don't see them What do you see?
[Bird] I see what's outside
[Lady] And what exactly is outside?
[Bird] It's grown-ups
[Lady] Well maybe if we scream they can hear us
[Bird] Yeah, maybe we should try to scream
[Lady] Ok, Bird
[Lady] & [Bird] Heeeelp, Heeeelp!! Can you hear us now? Hello! Help! Hello, it's me...hey, can you see? Can you see me? I'm here... Nana, come and take us! Hello? Are you there? Hello?
[Lady] I don't think they can hear us
[Bird] I can hear you, lady
[Bird] Do you want to come with me, lady?
[Lady] Will you be nice to me Bird?
[Lady] You're always nice to me because you're my friend
[Bird] I try, but sometimes I make mistakes
[Lady] Nana says we all make mistakes
[Bird] Maybe we should scream more
[Lady] Yes bird, let's scream more
[Lady] & [Bird] Help! Help us! Come on! Help! Hello? Help! Hello? We're lost!
[Lady] I don't think they can see us
[Bird] Nobody likes us
[Lady] But they all seem so big
[Bird] Maybe we should just jump
[Lady] What if we fall from the bridge and then nobody can catch us?
[Bird] I don't know... let's just see what happens
[Lady] Okay
[Bird] Come with me
[Lady] Shall we do it together?
[Bird] Yeah
[Lady] & [Bird] 1, 2, 3...AAAH!!
[Bird] Lady?
[Lady] Yes, bird?
[Bird] It's cold
[Lady] I know
[Lady] Bird...I cannot see a thing
[Bird] It's all in your mind

    My Opinionmaybe it is not just a song only for children, it is also a depressing song for adults who don't like the real world. they may feel disgust at the grow-ups around themselves, also count themselves in.

    General CommentThis is such a wondeful melody! It feels like the child within us wants to be plucked out, returning to innocense in day we feel lost! But it really is all in our minds! ;)

    General CommentIt's definitely a suicide song.

    However, I think it is a story about child neglect (where parents ignore their children, and is considered a form of child abuse). Now, I'm not at all familiar with the any of the band members' lives, but I'll definitely say that in this case, the children both felt ignored and to get attention, they hurt themselves.
    And while they felt neglected and ended up killing themselves, they didn't realize that they weren't alone, and that someone cared for them. Which is why it was in their heads, being alone and cold.
