It's a shame
What I thought of her
When I saw her
That way

It didn't change
What You thought of her
She's been Your daughter
Since she was made

Since I was made
I've been leaving
I'd say I'd change
But I wouldn't believe it

It's 'cause my legs
They don't forget
When they find a way out
They always take it

Oooh we don't
Oooh we don't
We don't know how we got here
The way is overgrown
Oooh we don't
Oooh we don't
We don't know how we became
this

She has a name
But I don't have to know
'Cause all I'm after
Is all she has to show

We cannot save
We can't even slow
Our loss of innocence
Every little child has to grow

Oooh we don't
Oooh we don't
We don't know how we got here
The way is overgrown
Oooh we don't
Oooh we don't
We don't know how we became
this

    General Commentreminded me of "catcher in the rye" and the whole idea of letting young one's lose their innocence.

    General Commentyea smoke signals i totally agree with you. the song is definitely about lust. the first and 2nd to last verse talk about our lust and how we just want 'all she has to show' while the 2nd verse contrasts with how God loves his daughter no matter what. the innocence verse talks about people's inevitable exposure to porn, sex, etc. the chorus questions how people became so lustful.

    General CommentI love this song, it has a very strong meaning and gives off a very chill sound. My favorite verses in this song is

    She has a name
    But I don't have to know
    'Cause all I'm after
    Is all she has to show

    We cannot save
    We can't even slow
    Our loss of innocence
    Every little child has to grow

    Correct me if i am wrong but i feel this is about some guy watching porn on the internet. It just saying how she is a person just like everyone else in this world, she has a name, she has friends, she has a life, but none of those things matter to this guy, he just wants to be pleasured by the presence of this girl over the internet.You cant little by little take innocence away. it is all or nothing, every child has to learn their mistakes somehow or another.
