"Blake Says" as written by and Amanda Palmer....
Blake says no one ever really loved him
They just faked it to get money from the government
And Blake thinks angels grow when you plant angel dust
He shakes his pretty head
But darling, trust me, trust me
He's no valentine
Though he said he would be mine
His heart is in Alaska all the time

Blake stays underwater for the most part
He collects loose change for All Tomorrow's Parties
And when Blake dates girls with tattoos of the pyramids
He breaks their hearts
By saying it's not permanent
But in his velvet mind
He believes with all his might
We'll all go to Alaska when we die

Blake makes friends but only for a minute
He prefers the things he orders from the internet
And Blake's been having trouble with his head again
He takes his pills
But never takes his medicine
Like Candy in his prime
He likes his shirts to shine
And when it's two o'clock it feels like nine

Blake says he is sorry he got through to me
If it's okay he'll call right back and talk to the machine
Blake says it looks like acid rain today
He takes the fish inside
He's very kind that way
But just like Caroline
He doesn't seem to mind
The globe is getting warmer all the time

It's still cold in Alaska
It's still cold in Alaska

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a boy I knew.
    His name was Jaaron, and he had a mental disease. Something close to Autism. He was the most intelligent person I've ever known, he just wasn't able to function socially. Before I knew him, he lived in Alaska. This song makes me sad, thinking about that guy. He was such an interesting person.

    "But in his velvet mind"
    Soft mind, soft person. The guy I knew was soft and nice to everyone. Even though everyone secretly laughed at him behind his back, leading me to this next one:

    "Blake says no one ever really loved him
    They just faked it to get money from the government"
    Everyone was really horrible to this guy. They pretended to be nice to him but then went off and laughed about him. I think he knew it really, but just didn't show it.

    "Like Candy in his prime
    He likes his shirts to shine"
    I remember he always looked so neat and tidy. Always wore pristine shirts and khakis.

    There's more I could say, but I'm about to fall asleep here. This is a beautiful song.
