Caroline says
as she gets up off the floor
Why is it that you beat me
it isn't any fun

When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

But she's not afraid to die
all her friends call her "Alaska"
When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

What is in her mind

She put her fist through the window pane
It was such a funny feeling

It's so cold in Alaska
it's so cold in Alaska
It's so cold in Alaska
