Lyrics Talk:Careful What You Pack

From This Might Be A Wiki

I think it starts something like:
look at what you found
digging in the ground
near the goldfish pond
There are also some parts that have something to do with either "you" or "she" being in trouble.
There's another part that's something like:
she thinks she's smart
she's just curious
Can anyone help out here?

I can help a lot, but i'd rather wait until I get to hear the song one more time tommorow night before I submit the rest of the lyrics. -TDK 14:24, 11 May 2006 (CDT)

Reading these lyrics I could really see this song being used in Coraline. Would fit in the first part of the book where Coraline goes exploring in her yard.

Now that you mention it, that's true. I'd actually be surprised if this doesn't wind up in Coraline. ~Anna Ng hears your words. 05:04, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Out of all the songs on The Else, I'm looking forward to this one the most. The lyrics are amazing! :) ~Anna Ng hears your words. 05:04, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Flansburgh comes to the party with the second best song on the Else. Beautiful lyrical and soft electronica that perhaps just misses a higher and softer acoustic guitar. Lyrically its difficult to dissect, but for me its almost a children's story about getting lost and making the wrong decisions. The primal fear of "there's no going back" being a strong theme.
