Sick in the Head
Indigo De Souza Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When we were walking out to that vacant house
I kept my blood in my gut, I kept my tongue in my mouth
We're going cause we're not quite dead
But darling, you're sick in the head
And there was no one home in that plastic box
In that widow's womb with the childproof locks
Oh it's not ours to see
But it was no one's to keep

Since then our bodies have warped and bent
And now we are gray
I go back to that house sometimes
To say what I need to say
Our bodies are warped and bent
And now we are blue
I go back to that house sometimes
Hoping I'll run into you

When we were calling out to that man of men
I said we need you now
Like we did back then
We're going cause we're too damn old
And nothing's making sense anymore
And now that house is gone
There's a golden lawn
And there's a silver spoon
Someone's been choking on
Oh, it's not our's to say
But darlin' it's dark in this den

Since then our bodies have warped and bent
And now we are gray
I go back to that house sometimes
To see what I need to say
Our bodies have warped and bent
And now are blue




I go back to that house sometimes
Hoping I'll run into you

Overall Meaning

The song "Sick in the Head" by Indigo De Souza tells a story of two people who are wandering through life and going to a vacant house together. The first verse mentions how one person has kept their blood in their gut and their tongue in their mouth when walking to the house with their partner who is described as "sick in the head." It's unclear what is causing the second person's sickness, whether it's a mental or physical ailment, or perhaps a metaphor for their general state of being lost and uncertain. In the following lines, the singer notes that there is no one home in the house they've arrived at and describe it as a "plastic box." The phrase "widow's womb with the childproof locks" paints a vivid picture of the emptiness and secrecy of the house, perhaps hinting that whoever lived there before was closed off from the wider world. The last lines of the verse emphasize that the house is nobody's to keep, including the pair of wanderers who have arrived.


The second verse opens with the line "since then our bodies have warped and bent," indicating that some time has passed and the two characters have aged. Now they're gray and blue, both colors that evoke melancholy and sadness. The singer has returned to the house several times in hopes of encountering their partner again, to say what they need to say. The house seems to hold a special significance for them, perhaps reminding them of better times or of a shared history. The final verse mentions calling out to a "man of men" and needing him, which adds to the overall air of uncertainty and desperation that's threaded throughout the song. The house, which was once vacant, is now gone, replaced by a "golden lawn" and a "silver spoon" that someone has been "choking on." The image of a spoon being choked on may be a metaphor for abundance turning into excess or even causing harm, and the den mentioned in the last line implies a sense of confinement or darkness.


Overall, the song captures a sense of longing for what was or what could be, and a feeling of being adrift in the world.


Line by Line Meaning

When we were walking out to that vacant house
We went to the empty house.


I kept my blood in my gut, I kept my tongue in my mouth
I stayed calm and didn't say anything.


We're going cause we're not quite dead
We're living life to the fullest.


But darling, you're sick in the head
But you have some mental issues.


And there was no one home in that plastic box
There was no one living in that house.


In that widow's womb with the childproof locks
The locked house seemed like a safe place.


Oh it's not ours to see
We can't always understand everything.


But it was no one's to keep
But it wasn't anyone's home to keep.


Since then our bodies have warped and bent
Over time, our bodies have changed.


And now we are gray
We've aged and our hair is gray.


I go back to that house sometimes
I still visit that empty house at times.


To say what I need to say
To express my true feelings.


Our bodies are warped and bent
Our physical state has changed.


And now we are blue
We're feeling sad or depressed.


Hoping I'll run into you
Hoping to see you again.


When we were calling out to that man of men
We were reaching out to someone for help.


I said we need you now
I asked for help in that moment.


Like we did back then
Like we used to ask for help before.


We're going cause we're too damn old
We're moving on despite our old age.


And nothing's making sense anymore
Things are confusing and unclear now.


And now that house is gone
The house we used to visit is no longer there.


There's a golden lawn
But now there's a beautiful garden.


And there's a silver spoon
Something valuable was left behind.


Someone's been choking on
Someone has had a hard time with something.


Oh, it's not ours to say
We can't judge what happened.


But darlin' it's dark in this den
But things are not looking good right now.
