The song "Sitting Still" : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

Hi! I love the song "Sitting Still" from the album Murmur. I would like to know what's the song about. And I always wondered what the line "Up to par and Katie bar the kitchen door, but not me in" means. Can you help me?

Thanks a lot Andrea

Stipes sister teaches sign language or possibly lip reading to deaf children. The song is about her, but i don't know more specifically than that. Hope that helps.
