I'm in the sky when I'm my floor
The world's a mess and you're my only cure
Is it time for me to act mature
The only words I know are "more, more" and "more"

They want to criticise me then
They want to criticise
They want to criticise me then
They want to criticise

There's no fear when I'm in my room
It's so clear and I know just what I want to do
All day bedroom dancing
To you I wanna say
You're my thing

You teach me
You teach me
You teach me
You teach me
You

Only teach me wisely
Oh, show me wise

    General CommentOkay! This is what Kathleen had to say about the song:

    "I've always felt frustrated listening to a band and dancing, and there's some knucklehead who comes up and says, 'Oh, hey, I love how you dance,'" explains the 33-year-old Hanna, who's been the reigning feminist of the indie-rock scene since it exploded ten years ago. "I think, 'Did I ask for that because I was standing in front having such a good time?' And then, 'Maybe I'll stand in the back and dance,' or 'Maybe I'll stay home and listen to the record and dance in my room by myself.'... It's that sort of feeling that even in leisure time you're still on the clock and being looked at through the male gaze--to turn a little Feminist 101 phrase on you," she adds with a laugh.

    General Commenti think its just about that feeling of.. being content and dancing alone in your room.

    no one can judge you there, right?

    General Commentor rather, in the less literal sense..

    perhaps.. er.. since le tigre are political..

    fuck it.

    i honestly think its about doing your own thing, whether its dancing in your room, or singing onstage or whatever. and that sometimes its all in your head if they're looking at you funny or not.

    because if it doesnt bother you, it sure as hell doesnt matter.

    General CommentI always thought it was, "they'll want to criticize me then..."

    I only vaguely see the drug reference. I see it more as the singer wants to do her own thing, and she is taught by a good friend to do what she wants (bedroom dancing) and not worry about being judged.

    Its a kick ass song.

    General CommentIt's not about drugs. It's literally about the act of/feeling when bedroom dancing.

    General CommentWhy are you people looking so fucking deep into this.

    It's about being alone in your room. Everyone dances alone in their room. You dance alone, no one can critize you then

    General CommentI'm in the sky when I'm on the floor
    The world's a mess and you're my only cure
    There's no time for me to act mature
    The only words I know are "more, more" and "more"

    DRUGS.
    Yeah.
    I know I've read all that stuff about dancing.
    But when I hear this verse I always think drugs.

    "..in the sky when im on the floor.."
    being high? yeah.
    "The world's a mess and you're my only cure"
    kay thats obvious.
    "There's no time for me to act mature"
    doesnt care if she has to resort to drugs, even if they get you hooked and whatever. not responsible, resorts to them as a form of esapism.
    "The only words I know are "more, more" and "more""
    addiction.

    just a spin on it, i guess.
