Very close third to Family Portrait and Long Way to Happy, this is now officially in my top 3 favourite Pink songs.
I love how she has openly said that she leaves this song open to interpretation by the listener - it's whatever it makes you feel, whichever emotion it provokes from within, we can flow with it - I love that. I love her brutal honesty and her wisdom.
And yes, this song is very close and personal to me, and you know what? To me, it IS reminiscent of suicidal feelings and/or thoughts. For me though, it's also about depression and wanting to make the "great escape" from the pain that is eating away at you inside - in whichever way works for you i.e antidepressants, anxiety meds = overdose = suicide.
I mean, it has many meanings I think and she has said as much in her track-by-track interview.
I'm so overwhelmed by the genius in this song. If (WHEN!) she performs this song live for the first time, I think I might actually die.
We love you, Pink x
