All the songs on the Vs Children album are wee stories like the ones you’d get in modern American indie films, full of unhappy beautiful young people being sad and finding life tough and stuff. In Wyoming or wherever. Kansas in this case I believe.
Often children or pregnancy is involved, like on this song there’s a line ‘the less you feel like a child the more you’ll want a child’. Not sure I agree, I just think it’s a great line.
