I'm making a coat out of
all the youth in the parking lot
They're so cool they look chic
With their hair in their eyes
So many gotta be reckoned with
Reason's out the window
And everyone's writing
letters to ex-lovers
I don't know
There are animals in my head
There are objects
falling from the sky
And it's not rain

The children in the playground
are laughing 'cause
everything around them is
So brand new
Now they're passing notes
in the classroom
About their feelings
Now they're passing notes
But their teacher knows
There are animals in my head
There are objects falling from the sky
And it's not snow

All these people
They got their minds made up
And nobody's ever gonna take 'em
All these people
They got their heads all up
And nobody's ever gonna forsake 'em
All these people
They got their notions built up
And nobody's ever gonna deceive 'em
And death will be
the only thing to break 'em

I'm makin' gestures, and
implicating and counteracting
And everyone nods in understanding
As if I actually make sense
And now it's just me and you
Everything is perfect
I should strike up a conversation
But I'm too afraid
And now it's just me and you
Everything is perfect
I should say something
or make a move
But I'm too afraid
No, I'm too afraid

    General CommentWell, it seems to be about being afraid to make a move on someone she likes. But also about how people get stuck in being worried about how they come off - all wrapped up in their beliefs so they're not open to honest experience anymore. Who knows? Becky Black is one deep girl - she makes me proud to be a girl. She is the best thing to happen to women since the vagina was invented.
