  • Lyrics
  • This song was written by the lead singer, Jeff Mangum. Like most songs on the album it is about the story of Anne Frank, who was a young girl living in the German-occupied Netherlands during World War II. While hiding from the Nazis, she kept a diary that has since become a classic piece of literature. >>
