"It's Alright, It's Ok" as written by and Rick/andreone Neigher....
Broken doll baby
And she says that life's a waste
It doesn't have to be that way
Dad threw away her mom

Her mom gave up his name
Crucified by their words
Nailed by shame
She stares into the sun

Self-inflicted pain
She sees that they're blind
Why does she take all the blame
The rhyme has changed compulsion rules

Mary's little lambs are now raised by wolves
A voyeur with wings flashes a cure
She knows forbidden things they have a lovely lure
It's alright it\'s ok

Welcome to this life
Killin' time
Just watchin' the grass grow
It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life
Don't worry sweet baby
'Cause it's over before you know
Persecuted she's not normal

I envy her strange ways
Seven deadly sins
Seize the hour seize the day
Her ideas need expression

Her wounds never bleed
Her beauty lives in my eyes
Too bad she can't see
She doesn't try I watch her spirits die

But giving up the ghost would feel so good
A voyeur with wings flashes a cure
She knows forbidden things they have a lovely lure
It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life
Killin' time
Just watchin' the grass grow
It's alright it's ok

Welcome to this life
Don't worry sweet baby
'Cause it's over

[Chorus: x2]

Crumbling Camelot idle teardrops
Cloudy diamonds freebase fun house
Expecting to fly but she's just standing still
Every time she gets it up she just can't close the deal

So she gives herself another way out
Walks her dog for the 50th time and
Files her nails till they bleed and she cries now
She doesn't have to try
It's alright, it's okay, it's alright.

    General CommentA small girl--witnessing her family falling apart before her eyes. May be they don't realize what all the fighting in front of her is doing to her fragile self-esteem, her stability is no longer and she just gives up on herself. She doesn't get the attention she needs--maybe her mother cares more about fixing herself rather than trying to fix what became broken inside her daughter--her father doesn't seem to care about her anymore because he's too busy trying to get rid of her mother--and there may be hints of child sexual abuse.

    General Commentthis is one of my absolute favorite songs, i remember in fifth grade i'd stay up really late just to hear it on the radio... yes, this was one of the very first cds i ever bought *memories*

    i never really knew the actual story behind this song, but i always really related to it (yes, even in fifth grade). i do know now, however, that it's about her parents' divorce. she sees her family falling apart (like leah grrl said) and isn't getting any attention, possibly sees it as her fault. very beautiful.
