Interpretations:Car Alarms

From This Might Be A Wiki

I read an article somewhere on the internet that this is based on Flansy & his wife Robin Goldwasser's moving to the Cat Skills, NY. This song is a part of their "People Are Wrong" stage performance. That whole play is about living in the country. I later learned (actually got a hint) that the Cat Skills is a popular place where rich people from NYC buy country homes, so I guess it is sort of like Aspen, Colorado in a way. As an aside, I've never been good at interpreting lyrics, but I thought they said "we CAN hear your car alarms from our renovated barn. I hope I'm wrong about that; I'd certainly hope they escaped such urban obnoxiousnous. - Jason Caltrider
