Katrina knows, where the dolly's go, to the
dark places in the garden,....yeahhh.
And Katrina feels, with the edge of a knife,
through the fall that cuts her open.
And she dont cry...she only smiles.
keep on smimilg youll get pardon a whoah
Pardon whoah
Gone too far, the dolly's cry turn back
get help why theres no hope for you.
But Katrina lives, because trina knows
where the dollys go

    General CommentI think this song is about a little girl growing up into a teenager. She leaves the dolls to go into the unknown.

    General CommentI also think this song is about a girl leaving her childhood and going into adolescence.

    ~~~

    However, I think this song could be a story of a girl who was raped as a child and is still suffering for it in her teens.


    "And Katrina feels, with the edge of a knife,"

    I think this suggests that katrin began to physically harm herself in order to feel.

    "through the fall that cuts her open."

    I believe the fall could be her rape

    "And she dont cry...she only smiles."

    but she pretends she's okay

    "Gone too far, the dolly's cry turn back"

    Katrina lpses into a deep depression, harming herself and the "dollys" (her self from her childhood) tell her to stop before she does something like commit suicide.

    "But Katrina lives, because trina knows
    where the dollys go "

    Katrina survives because she wants to get to the "dark places in the garden" where the dollys go.

    The dark place could simply mean a symbolic place where she can hide. Hide from her thoughts/ memories or certain people.

    The chois eof the word "garden" instead of, say, jungle clearly means that this is a story about a girl in her home, in her garden where children should be able to play, but in this case Katrina probably saw her garden as a refuge from her home.

    I love this song, I love the desperation and simplicity of ella's voice.
