Two headed boy
All floating in glass
The sun it has passed
Now it's blacker than black
I can hear as you tap on your jar
I am listening to hear where you are
I am listening to hear where you are

Meaning

Jeff Mangum expresses the presence of Anne Frank throughout the entirety of the album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. This song portrays her love affair with a two headed boy trapped in a jar in a dark laboratory. He calls for her by tapping on his jar and she waits and listens, as she too is trapped elsewhere.
