actually fixed italicization this time
Taken from an interview with My Car and My Guitar:
''Joe: The whole album is about dualities, and that song is probably about the child-adult duality. And the verses are about kids growing up, and the choruses are about whatever chaos or strife is caused by competition for partners?I was looking at Where The Wild Things Are, also. And I pictured this boy going into his closet and seeing a monster party. A party full of monsters dancing, like in this movie Jacob’s Ladder, also. Just a lot of visions like that kind of influencing the song.''
