I think it's good to be a little
It must be good to be a little scared
I wonder what it must be like to be on fire and so hot
On fire

    General Commenteven though he MORE THAN LIKELY doesn/t believe in hell, like most of us, because we've been indoctrinated since we could hear, we're a little scared of hellfire.

    to me the point of the song seems to be panda trying to get the point across that we're all, at some point, horrible people.

    General Commenti prefer to interpret this literally, as i do a lot of panda bear's songs. it's good to be a little scared sometimes, and it's really an interesting thing to wonder about. i've worked with ceramics for years, and whenever i watch the fire burning out of a kiln, i wonder, "what must it be like to be that hot?"

    it could also be interpreted from the angle of death and cremation. the song certainly ends on an ominous enough note.

    General CommentThe Search For Delicious is an AMAZING book by Natalie Babbit. Just that title makes me happy.

    General CommentSounds just like an astronaut floating lost in space as debris drifts by, giving a sense of wonder and maybe fear. It could have to do with the book of the same name. I'm lost on meaning, just like the astronaut tiding through space, but the little bits that drift by create an atmosphere that fills the space left empty by meaning. Maybe we're supposed to find out own definition of what "Search for Delicious" means.
