Here kitty
Why are you way up there?
Here kitty
Why do you look so scared?

You don't need a fireman's pity
I just think you need some convincing

Right now, right now
I'm going to help this kitty get down
Right now, right now
I'm going to help this kitty get down
Kitty get down

Here kitty
Do you think you're safer up there?
Here kitty
Not in this atmosphere
Hey kitty
All the trees are getting crowded now
Hey kitty
Isn't it time you stood your ground?

I used to be a lot like you kitty
All I needed was some convincing

Right now, right now
I'm going to help this kitty get down
Right now, right now
I'm going to help this kitty get down
Kitty get down

You don't need a firemans pity
I just think you need some convincing

Right now, right now
I'm going to help this kitty get down
Right now, right now
Kitty get down

    General CommentI like the symbolism (I may be reading too deep though). Cats are usually portrayed as independent, social, and playful. And moreso, they seem to love heights.

    There is a comparison between heights and security; with some people, they feel better observing or being in the sidelines because they aren't comfortable with peoples eyes being on them. (The 'higher' or more distant you are from people, the more you can be yourself)

    The song itself is interesting because whoever the singer is talking about seems to be a happy-go-lucky person (cat analogy), but seems to hide self-esteem issues - so he/she goes up the tree to escape his/her fear of being ridiculed/judged for who they are.

    So the singer takes it as their goal to make sure the 'cat' isn't afraid anymore.

    "Here kitty
    Do you think you're safer up there?
    Here kitty
    Not in this atmosphere
    Hey kitty
    All the trees are getting crowded now
    Hey kitty
    Isn't it time you stood your ground?"

    In reality, everyone seems to have the same fear, but the singer wants this particular person to not be like everyone else who hides.

    "Fireman's pity" refering to someone having to help them out, where the singer wants the "cat" to get down from the tree by itself. Hence, the convincing.


    WOW. This was long. Sorry! XD
