Is the song a literal story about the effects of mental illness? Is it a metaphor for something? Is it just some damn good storytelling? I don’t know. The armchair psychologist in me is fascinated by the song, regardless of its origins. The music lover in me thinks that it’s a fantastic showcase for April Smith’s amazing voice.
