damnit anna don't look at me that way
you know very well what you did that day
yes you know very well
you say you got a soul to sell
but if you wanna meet the devil
you gotta go to hell

damnit anna can't you look me in the eyes
you better pay attention when i'm giving you advice
'cause you'll pay out then know
that nothing comes for free
you already paid the price of losing me

well i am big and flesh
i dread the words you read
a book without a cover
so don't judge me 'till its over

damnit anna don't you give me away
i'm sleeping in the shadows and i'm here to stay
they say if you love something
you better give it away
but i've seen the same things happen
in a canned rage

damnit anna (damnit anna)
damnit anna (damnit anna)
damnit anna (damnit anna)
damnit anna

    General Commentalthough i couldnt find the correct lyrics for this song (even when i checked on their website) i think i still got the jist of it. i think the song is about a guy and a girl (although its sorta unclear if they are in a relationship or not) and the guy is trying to be patient with this girl and it seems she has made her fair share of mistakes but this guy is still staying by her side even though it is hard for him. it would seem that this guy is frustrated with her but in a cute kind of "i still love you anyway" (did i just answer my own question here? maybe they are in a relationship). any other ideas? its a cute song though , and this band seems pretty solid. they've sort of got a vampire weekend/the kooks sound. good job guys.

    General Commenti think he's frustrated that someone he loves/d is dealing with an eating disorder and would rather be with the illness than with him.

    General Commentfirst of all, think it's bled instead of dread.

    second, this song seems to be about a guy who loves anna, and she's an idiot, and she keeps making mistakes, so she's lost him at least once before, and he doesn't want to lose her again, but it seems to be going in that direction.

    or at least that's what i say about it. cause my name is anna, and i screw up pretty bad.

    General CommentHere is what I think some of the lyrics are just based on listening and piecing together:

    NOT 'cause you'll pay out then know that nothing comes for free
    INSTEAD 'cause you'll pay out the nose, 'cause nothing comes for free

    NOT well i am big and flesh, i dread the words you read
    INSTEAD well I am ink and flesh, I bled the words you read

    NOT ive seen the same thing happen in a canned rage.

    INSTEAD... I have no idea. I just don't think it's canned rage. Sounds more like Candace rage or canvas rage or something.
