I'm indecisive, I'm scatterbrained, and I'm frightened, it's evident
And them eyes where he hiding all them icicles at
He looks at the world in cold eyes after his father left, so his tears have frozen over time. Also, he’s so insecure that he never lets his guard down, not wanting to cry in front of others. All of the pain experienced in his life has caused him to act in these reclusive ways. He’s afraid of losing those close to him, like he lost his father very early in his life when he left Earl and his mother.
