"Hello Oskar" as written by and Maida/lanni....
Over there well he's wondering
Is Oskar there is Oskar all right
Was never cool not allowed to fit
He never knew what he liked
Over there he's the rubberman
A rubber dress with Betty Page eyes
Was never cool he'll never settle down
He's not allowed to drive
He'll build a bridge then walk around
Don't ever call him dumb he's not that bright
He's just not himself
I will take you somewhere
Somewhere to unwind
You're tangled up in all this shit
I will make you mine
Over there he's a superstar
A taxi man and a young Einstein

    General CommentThe name of the song was taken from the name of a book called "Hello, Oscar." It was about a schizophrenic guy. With that in mind, the meaning behind the song should be easy to figure out.

    General CommentWhile I have always heard the same thing, that it was about a book called, "Hello, Oscar" about schizophrenia, I have not been able to locate this book anywhere, and frankly reading the lyrics, how can you say that it has anything to do with schizophrenia? Maybe I'm missing something, explain?

    General CommentThere's nothing wrong, he's a superstar
    A taximan and a young Eisenstein
    Was never cool he'll never settle down
    He's not allowed to drive

    He'll build a bridge then walk around
    Leave that boy alone
    He's not that bright
    He's not uptight
    And he's just not him
    Not himself

    That sure sounds like a description of schizophrenia to me, Gary.
