"That Girl" as written by Esthero and Martin Daniel Mc Kinney....
In the bat of an eye
You already think about yourself
And I don't believe all the lies coming out of my mouth
Try to forget all the things that I did to myself and in time I see it fading

One of these these things just doesn't belong here
And look at that girl
Oh, I just don't belong here
And look at that girl

Aphrodite tonight
She's lifting up her dress and child
Her stomach was so tight
And she sees herself fading

One of these these things just doesn't belong here
And look at that girl
I just don't belong here
And look at that girl

And I'll try to catch my own vibe
Leave behind the countryside
Who I'll be?
What I'll be, 'cause it's my right to love desi

One of these these things just doesn't belong here
And look at that girl
I just don't belong here
And look at that girl (look at that, feel bad..)

    General Commenti think this song is inspirational. she looks around and repeats "look at that girl, i don't belong here" but then she thinks that it's not who she should be, but what she can design herself to be by catching her own vibe

    General CommentI always felt this song was about childbirth.
    Aphrodite, lifting up her dress & child, feeling herself fading, feeling like she doesn't belong in comparison to 'that girl', loving 'design', etc..

    It's about the wonderful realization that once your child is born, all focus on yourself & your own wants/needs shifts to your child, who becomes infinitely more significant than yourself..


    Anyway, this song is possibly THE best song ever written. EVER =)

    General Commentactually, I had 2 theories!
    The happy theory of childbirth, OR perhaps a death or complications during childbirth.

    If the latter were accurate, than feeling herself fade/feeling as though she doesn't belong/leaving the countryside.. all point to her feeling as though the complications could either endanger her childs life or her own, in which case, her childs life is far more significant than her own.

    If the former were accurate, than childbrith/motherhood has meant that her own thoughts/fears/concerns about her life have faded in relation to the significance of her childs. She will try & catch her own vibe by maintaining her essence, but she doesn't know what motherhood will being. Who will be be?
    Regardless, she has no regrets as it's her choice & RIGHT as a woman to become a mother.


    Also.. I personally have never heard the lyrics 'look at that, feel bad', but rather 'look at that dear girl'. I don't know if anyone agrees, but I have never thought of this as a sad song, but a very modest one about feeling content, knowing there is something far more important than yourself!
