My Cell Lyrics
anonymous Feb 25th, 2:57pm report
It is not meant to be interpreted alone, but as a part of the story of the Sparks family as told by the album & short film that accompanies it. It is what Junior Sparks feels constantly looking for love in his life, trapped by it, and eventually betrayed by it.
As referenced from YouTube user Jack Anderson:
"Listen to Jimmy Sparks, it explains the story more. However, I think Jimmy owes money to some loan shark guy who came to collect. The girl Jimmy was sleeping with was actually just trying to get Jimmy’s wallet to give to the loan shark, and they both beat him up. Also, it shows all the characters at the end to show how they are all alone due to the addictions they’ve gone through. I think the last girl at the end is Bonnie, Junior’s mom (Jimmy’s ex wife) who we might see more of in the next videos."

The speaker is falling in love with someone. He feels alone in the relationship. He is falling in love and he is too timid to tell the girl that he loves her. Falling in love is a wonderful thing to him, but he is trapped in his “cell” he uses the painted windows metaphor to show that he is painting a picture of a relationship that isn’t even real. Part of him wants out of the cell, but another part loves the comfort and the picture that he has painted for himself.
