Always thought this song was maybe about being bipolar (Tori Amos-Upside Down)

    Maybe thats just my interpretation of it though.

    Heres the song if you don't know it:

    "God I love to turn my little blue world
    Upside down
    God I love to turn my little blue world
    Upside down
    Inside my head the noise
    Chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter
    You see I'm afraid I'll always be
    Still coming out of my mother upside down

    Don't you love to turn this little blue girl
    Upside down
    Oh I know you love to turn this little blue girl baby
    Upside down
    But my heart it says
    You been shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter, shattered
    And I know you're still a boy
    Still coming out of your mother

    But when you gonna stand on your own
    I say the world is sick
    You say "Tell me what that makes us darlin'"
    You see, you always find my faults
    Faster than you find your own
    You say the world is getting rid of her demons
    I say "Baby what have you been smoking?"
    Well I dreamed, I dreamed, I dreamed
    I loved a black boy
    My daddy would scream
    Oh yeah

    Don't you love to turn this little blue girl
    Upside down
    Any kind of touch I think is better than none
    Even upside down
    But you see I'm tangled up
    Got a kitten, kitten, kitten, kitten in my hair
    Cincinnati, I like the word
    It's the only thing we can seem to turn
    Upside down

    Well I found the secret to life
    I found the secret to life
    I'm okay when everything is not okay
    I said I found the secret to life
    I found the secret to life
    I'm okay when everything is not okay
    Is not okay

    Oh, we turn and we turn our little blue world
    Upside down
    I said, don't we love to turn our little blue world baby
    Upside down
    Inside my head a voice
    Chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter
    And it says "Girl you're all the same
    Still coming out of your mothers
    Still coming out
    of your mothers
    Upside down"
