Mix me with a stereo song
Promise me a heartache
Just like you were King Kong
I'd fill you up and then some

I'd love to see you Saturday afternoon
I'd spin you out and show you what you're worth
I'd love to hold your backbone in my hands
I'd be your favorite cartoon

Got your eyelids painted on mine
with a thin coat of elastic
Stop me if I'm a shrine
and build you out of plastic

I'd love to be your Saturday afternoon
I'd call you up and talk your universe
I'd carry 'round your backbone in my pants
I'd be your favorite cartoon

No place to vent this frustration/elation
and I'm pulling all my hair out
So I made this compilation
and I guess I've still not found you out

I'd love to see you Saturday afternoon
I'd stick around and go with you to church
I'd love to sell your backbone to my fans
I'd be your favorite cartoon

    General CommentI interpret this as a falling-in-love song. More specifically, the narrator feels frustrated with his/her emotions of attraction towards another and seeks to vent these emotions through music, presumably a mixtape.

    Evidence: The line "Mix me with a stereo song" could refer to some association between song and the narrator, such that the feelings of the narrator are expressed to the love interest through the songs he/she puts on the mixtape. More conclusively, the lines "No place to vent this frustration/elation / and I'm pulling all my hair out / So I made this compilation" reference a "compilation," perhaps a mixtape.

    As far as the repeating backbone metaphor goes, the backbone could be seen as a symbol of the narrator's love interest, such as "to hold your backbone in my hands" would occur during a hug between the two.

    The last thing I noticed is that for the narrator to "see you Saturday afternoon / I'd stick around and go with you to church" creates an ironic contrast between the implied sexuality of spending the night and going to church the next day, Sunday.

    This is indeed a strange song, especially from the Jana Hunter cannon. Musically, it is her only song even remotely electro-pop, however, the abstruse lyrics are characteristic of much of her other work.
