    It is about the internal battle we all have with our ego. The games out mind play, Judgemental, inferior, superior. Her sweater reflects her state of mind, it stresses out others and we judge them, same battle. We can not stop sometimes, “but I can’t help it” because most don’t know the answer how to stop it.
    She is already on the floor in the game really and can’t even recognize
    We are already there if we unaware of how it works.
    The hunter is us, our ego. It is called many things in religions…. We can’t hunt what we don’t accept but she is searching for the answer.
    We don’t listen and jump in any conversation, jumping to conclusions that satisfy our ego. The pain that comes with it. Slap me with a splintered ruler. The pain also is felt by others as we interrupt never hearing anyone but our own thoughts. In reality our ego only cares to satisfy itself when not aware
    Only thinking of ourselves, jumping the gun in a conversation or opinion whether said or not etc. Each verse tells the story from different angles that trick us. She really wants a kindred, someone who understands and is line with her spirit. Get my drift? She wants someone else who gets it and gets her instead being lost and unaware. She wants a soul mate, someone to really connect with spiritually and to continue becoming more spiritual. The corrupt ways of money, corporations, greed, money hungry, the ego wants more of everything as we identify ourselves with what we think makes us look good, or the other direction and we don’t take proper care of our selves. Is the same thing. Two sides of one coin but the same coin. The pretences, the BS we believe of what is going on. It is everywhere, the illusions we believe the illusion of ourselves because of our egos. It is a mystery to most. It goes on within us all the time as we measure up to others. Cocky or insecure again the same coin. Are you petrified of silence, can you just be without worry?? Try it, or do you need a distraction, Internet for example, how much time do you spend watching the TV or social media, the list is endless. We need patience and understanding as we ALL have the struggle but the toughest is actually becoming aware of it.
    She wants to meet her maker and have deliverance from her ego to find God. Each verse tells more of the games we play, all BS. There is much more to explain, if interested go on YouTube and watch EGO explained by Hans Wilhelm, if you get that then try SAMADHI, the illusion of the self.
    On youtube. You can search their channels to learn more. WAKE UP the answers will come if willing.

    She is worried and can not do anything right so that's why she put her sweather on backwards.
