When your grandmother dies,
will she fly to the afterlife,
or will she haunt your children?

My thoughts are logical in my bedroom.
I lay awake with a desperate moon.
I'm wishing it all away (I wish it away).
I don't need the anxiety.

Dirty yellow star hinting at who you are.
Do you feel dead, sinking into my waterbed?

The stars on my ceiling are glowing
(while) your life is a constant impending doom.

Watch the sun melt all the icicles.
Making friends is never logical.

Toss your body to the ocean for the gulls and seabirds.
They will watch with sun tan lotion in the salty air.

I know who you are,
dirty yellow star.

    General CommentNo comment? This is seriously one of the best songs on this album.
    What I interpret this song to be about personally is depression.
    We've all been there where we lose a friend or loved one and we kinda lose faith and believe "making friends is never logical" because we dont want to feel the pain of loss. I think the song is about Chris sitting in his room or on his bed just thinking about life. "My thoughts are logical in my bedroom." He's alone and he can make impersonal decisions regarding why hes upset or depressed. I think the part about tossing the body to the sea is him letting go of the friend or loved one. Hes letting realization sink in and deciding to let go because he doesn't need the anxiety of feeling upset. Or maybe he realized that the friend wasnt really a friend at all "I know who you are, dirty yellow star."
    Of course thats just my interpretation.
