@ariramos (Bill the Monkey): It IS a great metaphor! :) He's talking about the relationship he is in, but he's comparing her to a bird inside a cage. She is free to leave but she doesn't realize it. She can't see that she's free because she doesn't understand that the windows in the house are open... she only sees the open birdcage she's inside within the house.
Sometimes this song reminds me of my parakeet, Skittles (he passed away a few years ago) so I cry my eyes out when I hear this. Hmm.. Lol I know some people who's brain can't keep up with their beak, I'm not naming any names.
Love this song :)
Death Cab For Cutie is brilliant.
I really love this song. Although I do think sometimes the demo version can be better to listen to, just with the different way it sounds.
Continuing to spam. :(
I guess I'm spamming this. :/
I've heard people say great metaphor what does this mean.
I'm confused about what he is trying to say.
It shouldn't be "In a house, in a house." Take out the comma. It's a house (birdhouse) in a house (human house).

Pretty, but I think I actually like the ukulele demo version better.
One one of my favorite songs too!
