    I always thought along those lines, you know, sniffing substances in paper bags and stuff. I always thought the whole song was about being in with a bad crowd and wanting to get away from it. It fits in with graffiti decorations and angry voices. A sky of dust was always to me symbolising the inner city, with dusty, smog-filled air, where those "bad crowds" always hang around. Yeah, that's my thoughts.

    yeah. your ideas are all great (apart from the robbers in the market thing-what the f*ck?) but i kinda thought it might be that he wishes he could put something over his head (like a paper bag?) to shut out all of the angry voices?
    i have no idea
    someone ask :mike:
    :lol: :D :p (w00t)

    Paperbags could be taken as a way of being something you're not. Aka: Like putting a bag over your head. Or like, hiding from something while others are taking you out.

    So like, it's like saying " I wanna run away" is another way of saying you want to escape the paperbags. Wanting to escape from the life you've lived. You know, the life filled with lies and such.[/b][/quote]
    That one makes the most sense.

    Mike: Hey paperbag head get over here!
    Chester: But I wanna F*cking run away!
    lol
