So I said, "I guess things are alright"
Sternly he replied, "you just sit tight kid"
One thing still bothered me, but I never did bother to ask
I couldn't figure out the words
Expressions and words
They're nothing but letters
Emotionally illiterate
Severely inarticulate
I don't know how to tell and I don't know how to ask
But I'm alright
Am I sheltered?
Am I trapped?
Was I saved and if so why?
Why did I get this chance?
Will I be able to use it right?
I might blow up sometimes but you know things are alright
I might complain and bitch but you know my answer never changes
Everything's alright
In the world you made I'm doing aok.

    This song is about denying your true feelings, about keeping up the illusion of happiness. This need to mask one's true self comes from being taught to feel a certain way, of being taught taht some emotions are not okay to feel. Thus, the person in the song is repressed and unable to communicate how they feel.

    I can relate to this song more than I'd like to admit.
