    General CommentA scoundrel or a scamp, I presume. I simply love the way he reads that line. It sounds so innnocent but mischievous. Really like the whole song, comes together just really well and all tinkly and pretty!

    General CommentThis song perfectly captures the essence of being high. On what, that's up to you.. "My thoughts are scattered and they're cloudy..."

    General CommentAgree with fixable, this song seems to be about drugs or mental illness

    "My thoughts are scattered and they're cloudy"

    The more you listen to it, the more you can feel there's a subtle undercurrent of impulsion and paranoia actually - for example:

    "Sometimes I think it's hanging down on me."

    "Got some pictures in my pocket and a lot of time to kill."

    "Why don't you show your face and bend my mind?"

    "And they linger there to die."

    Overall the song is just kinda gentle and random, but I feel there's a sort of weird impulsiveness there too.
