Anna Molly Lyrics - Incubus

Review The Song (25)



A cloud hangs over this city by the sea.
I watch the ships pass and wonder if she might be (might be)
Out there and sober as well from loneliness.
Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a mess .

I picture your face at the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize!
Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly.

A cloud hangs over and mutes my happiness,
A thousand ships couldn't sail me back from distress. (distress)
Wish you were here and I'm a wounded satellite.
I need you now. Put me back together, make me right.

I picture your face at the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize!
Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly.

I'm calling your name up into the air.
Not one of the others could ever compare.

Anna Molly, Anna Molly!

Wait... there is a light... there is a fire...
Illuminated attic.
Fate. Or something better? I couldn't care less,
Just stay with me a while.
Wait... there is a light... there is a fire,
Defragmenting the attic,
Fate? Or something better? I couldn't care less,
Just stay with me a while.

I picture your face at the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize!
Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly.

I'm calling your name up into the air.
Not one of the others could ever compare.
Anna Molly, Anna Molly!

Wait... there is a light... there is a fire
Defragmenting the attic, (Anna Molly!)
Fate? Or something better?
I could care less,
Just stay with me a while (Anna Molly!)

Incubes rocks! | Reviewer: Nikamo18 | 1/19/12

I agree with you Sam, this song is great and so is the band. I wouldn't change any of their albums or their sounds, because they have proved they can play very mature and complex music and I love them. I prefer to think of Anna Molly as the imaginary girl He cannot get over. Love this song and the band!!! :)



all of the above. | Reviewer: Sam | 1/9/11

For the grammar nazi "I could care less" is in a different context than what you think...he is being literal he COULD care less, but he doesn't. So its not an unintelligent line. Get over yourself.

As for the rest...every Incubus album is a "different" genre, that's their staple and what makes them stand out. I like their older stuff better, yes, but the new stuff is just as brilliant and complex as the older albums, just a different tone.

As for what is about, everyone is right. Its about addiction to the unknown, to a girl, to a drug, and also Ana Molly is a retro porn actress. I think Brandon knew all of this and any interpretation would be correct. I mean, come on, their "mascot" is a porn actor. :P

I love that Incubus make their music for them...and don't bend to anyone else's desire over their art.



Annoying mistake | Reviewer: Annoyed Listener | 8/19/10

Your lyrics make sense when it says "I couldn't care less", however, in the song, they are saying "I could care less". They keep saying it over and over again and it really started to bother me that they keep saying it wrong.

They should be saying "I couldn't care less" instead. It just makes them seem less intelligent and I started to lose respect for them.



anna molly | Reviewer: melissa | 6/3/10

im very sure the song is about a strange girl he doesnt know hence anomaly (anna molly) he thinks she is beautiful but he doesnt know her " Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a mess" and every time he sees her he is amazed "I picture your face at the back of my eyes" he thinks about her alot and he hopes if they could get together they could, "I need you now. Put me back together, make me right"



Anna molly | Reviewer: Ashley Nicole White | 6/4/10

i think your fucking stupid if you dont like this song. i think its one of the best iv ever heard!and if you think its about "E" who the fuck cares, get over it, your pathetic, good music like this, beats what you think any day.



Honestly... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/10

Given Incubus' obvious drug use, I think it's about Ecstasy. Not just E, but pure MDMA. It's called "Molly" on the streets. Anyone who has ever tried it would understand. It's about wanting to get the euphoric feeling you get from it. The "fire in the attic". The "proof of the prize"...In fact, taking it turns your whole body onto a receiver. Your senses are heightened and you feel like a "satellite".It's quite an Anomaly.



Good Song, but... | Reviewer: SiSo | 12/20/09

While I agree with others that this is a terrific song, and the album is good as well, that is where the agreement stops.

Anyone who thinks (as one reviewer said) that this album as a whole is "up to par" with Incubus's old-school stuff is unhinged. And no, I don't mean freaking "Morningview," that album was just shy of terrible, and "Crow Left of Murder" wasn't much better. This is the first album Incubus has put out in years I've been able to listen to and really enjoy. Since "Make Yourself," actually.

Now, I'm all for a band changing their sound, and trying different things, and I give Incubus major props for having done so; however, change for change's sake is not always (and not even usually) a good thing, and Incubus's newer work is proof of that. Nothing they have done has topped or even come CLOSE to "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." "Make Yourself" was the only one that even came close, and it was *still* a very distant second. "Enjoy Incubus" and "Fungus Among Us" were both terrific albums (prior to "S.C.I.E.N.C.E.," for those who don't know), but still can't hold a candle to that best of Incubus albums. Come on, Incubus! Where is another "S.C.I.E.N.C.E."? And before I get "Who wants them to put the same thing out over and over blah blah blah...", I didn't say I want them to do that exact thing again. I just wish they would do something of that caliber and sheer talent, intensity, and cleverness.

Of course, anyone is free to disagree with me, and I'm sure most will. Which is fine, it just means you're all wrong ;)

Cheers, SiSo



About "anomaly" | Reviewer: Miria | 2/9/09

Yes, absolutely, there is a double meaning to the title of the song. Brandon has said so himself: "'Anna-Molly' delivers a similar push (as "A Kiss to Send Us Off") but has a far more sophisticated bent, in that it rocks, but conjures imagery of a girl that I can see in my mind's eye but most likely doesn't exist. Therefore being a bit of an anomaly. I guess that is relatively sophisticated...right?"

I love the idea that he plays with language this way. It makes his lyrics that much richer.



SIck...! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/09

Does anyone else think that when Brandon says Anna Molly it sounds like Anomaly? Anomaly means, in simple terms, Strange Person. So maybe that kinda is a reference to Anna Molly...just a thought about what I hear when i listen to this song.



Awesome song, Awesome band! | Reviewer: Nova | 3/20/08

OMG! I luv this song! I luv the video as well...and brandon controlling his voice very well! Luv his voice..it's from deep inside! Luv him too! His sooo handsome and SEXY

I just love all of INCUBUS!



INCUBUS RULES | Reviewer: KATHY EINZIGER | 3/7/08

Come on….have you seen and hear great drums.. you better hear THIS SONG. Accompanied with a powerful voice of Brandon... you wouldn’t ask for more. Light Grenades is one of the best albums ever.

How I wish, I am MIKEY EINZIGER’S Anna Molly….. “I PICTURE YOUR FACE AT THE BACK OF MY EYE”… love him so much. He’s really funny and now more mature.
INCUBUS RULES AS ALWAYS!



aWEsOme!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: jeon ji hyun | 8/7/07

iNcubUs is thE cOolEst bAnD evEr!!!! And right now, brandon looks really buff.. but still hot!!!



There's is a light | Reviewer: Liz | 7/6/07

This song couldn't be better, Incubus is one of my favorite bands by far...
They try something new everytime, they're great, they should feel pleased by what they do for music these days, when all you hear is hip hop and none about the heart



Anna Molly=anomaly? | Reviewer: petra | 6/12/07

it's been 6 month since the released the light grenades..but anna molly still inspires me the most..that perfect girl, the rgh one for brandon exsist only in his attic (mind/fantasy)...video is also pretty interesting..the girl who spent part of her life living like a dead person , pretty passive and when her time comes she becomes a rebel..she fights.and wins..



the new incubus | Reviewer: village_idiot | 6/10/07

ive only been averagely interested in incubus' music in the past, but listening to Anna Molly it seems they have really evolved and stepped things up since the last album, its a really complex, clever and original sounding song, im really impressed, like it a lot.
