agent orange skies
hang bright above this high school gym
and they believe we're so happy young

and look like pink decorations
in our very best crystals
oh, and how i wanted to dance
so badly

agent orange skies
hang bright behind these factory lights
and jump the freight trains
we're fucking young

and look like pink decorations
in our crystal meth tuxedos
oh, and how i wanted to dance
so badly

    General Commentthis song is bloody gorgeous. anyway:

    this is probably somewhat irrelevant at this point but i agree with Bonavox--it's probably crystal meth... especially given that in the lyrics it SAYS crystal meth in the line "in our crystal meth tuxedos".

    mostly, i second rachael.'s theory. i'm not entirely sure if agent orange really plays into it beyond the title, though i could just be crazy.

    to me, personally, though, it's a song about enjoying things (love and life) under the influence of anything that makes it prettier. not so deep as it probably actually is, just a simple thing. that's just what it is to me, though.

    General CommentKill hannah was introduced to me by a girl whom of which i know through the net. She lives in columbus and i am very grateful she visits Chi-town..anyways..this song is definitely about drugs. That is atleast my interpretation of it. i think it is about not being as innocent as you appear, about doing stuff so that no one knows, but in all actuality everyone knows. but no one will dare say anything to you. "agent orange skies hand bright above this highschool gym and the believe we're so happy young" making an agent orange sky a person, makes me believe it is about drug use

    General Commenti'll go with the drug theory...maybe "meth" could be short for methadone? a drug taken by people who try to stop their heroin addiction.

    General CommentThis song, for sure, is about this generation just getting messed up and enjoying the ride.

    Mat Devine is big on drugs

    General CommentIt's funny that there's so many drug referances in KH stuff, since besides your standard boozing the guys aren't really into drugs.
