"Little Girl" as written by and Mark/burton Linkous....
A trick that people use to make you think they are smart
Is confidence when actually they're lost in the dark
Only someone with the mind of a child says he'll grow up
The seven and the avalanche you're life will show up
Its nice to be loved it can never happen too late
I wanna share my food but you have stolen my plate
Hey now, hey now go your way now

You tortured little girl
Showing them what love is all about
Where did all the time go?
Everywhere it's gone, gone, gone

You get the point now
You pick yourself up off the bars
She's on his arm now
Cause they remind you off the pictures on the wall now
But you was young and I wasn't not even born yet
If you think I know a little more bit
Than the average person on the streets you are incorrect
Because I'm ignorant as shit, not here to preach, man
You know I just wanna have fun, go to the beach, man
That's all I am, I'm just a simple guy who talks when
You put a microphone in front of him

You twisted little girl
Showing them what life is all about
Where did all the time go?
Everywhere it's gone

Running left in a relationship
Going in circles and I just can't wait
Running left so we can get in shape
Get in shape because we can't escape

Running left because I'm already late
Really not, I'm in the exact same place
Running laps in your relationship
Running away from the subtleties of

The worlds always amazed at how much cash you made
But not at how you made it, it's just strange
It sounded kind of cool over the phone
It killed your neighbors and their dog and crushed their bones

You tortured little girl
Showing them what laughter's all about
Where did all the wine go?
Every night it's gone

You got it all worked out
Funny little girl
Showing them what pain is all about
Where did all the time go?
Every night it's gone, gone, gone

You're the coolest girl in this whole town
I just wanna parade you around

    Song MeaningJulian seems to be debunking beliefs, the first one being that confident people are always smart. Then he rejects the idea that people will magically evolve when they hit a certain age: The seven and the avalanche you're life will show up
    The little girl in this song might be a metaphore to someone that thinks is wiser because of their age: "showing them what life is all about" and he calls her a "little girl" to highligh the fact that she never grew up.
    I think Julian might be singing about himself on the last part. He's the one that seems "smart" but "If you think I know a little more bit
    Than the average person on the streets you are incorrect
    Because I'm ignorant as shit, not here to preach, man". He doesn't want to be praised or thought as a genious for his music: "I'm just a simple guy who talks when
    You put a microphone in front of him"
    Then, when Julian repeats "Running" at the beginning of the last verses he's saying that we're always running for what seem to be different reasons, but are all the same and lead you to the same place.
    Then Julian keeps on debunking the beliefs. The perception of what's cool ("It sounded kind of cool over the phone
    It killed your neighbors and their dog and crushed their bones") and the perception of succes ("The worlds always amazed at how much cash you made
    But not at how you made it, it's just strange")
    Basically the song talks about perception. What seems so smart, so confident, so cool, so succesfull, so experienced is not. "actually they're lost in the dark".
