  • Mariah from New York, NyThere's not 90 words in the album title...?
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnSuch a cool song, love those brutual lyrics.
  • Fiona from Nycity, AlIt's a love/hate relationship that Fiona just can't let go of. We all have at least "one" of those! Or will! ;P
  • Peaches from Minneapolis, MnI absolutely love this song, it's one of my favorites on the album (Paper Bag by far is the best though). Extraordinary Machine is the bomb too! Good going Fiona!
  • Christine from Belmont, NhThis song is awesome... It took me about a week to be able to sing along to it... I'm usually pretty quick with these things... She is such a dominating. strong person and so sure of herself and this song says just that...
  • Dylann from Los Angeles, Cafinally a good song on this album...i feel bad that this one wasnt as good as the others. she totallly redeemed herself with extraordiary machine though. most definitely.
  • Dennis from Chicagoland Burrows, IlThis song is awesome. Paul Thomas Anderson directed the video for it, they were involved at the time, and her more recent album "Extraordinary Machine" is based on her split with him.
  • Aja from Gloucester, Mai love fiona apple, and i think this song has alot of rythem and imagination...well done.
  • Lisa from Cranberry Hill, CtI think it also sounds like she's talking about drugs (and a relationship at the same time.) I mean, think of drugs, read the lyrics, you can see what I mean...
  • Whitnee from Portland, Oryeah, I agree... basically, it's about her having issues that destroy people who get close to her... maybe it's her expression of being hesitant to opening up to ppl and letting them in
