If I don't believe in him...
why should he believe in me?

It speaks to me on so many levels. Particularly on a level of superficiality. In the grand scheme of things, I may figuratively be a table. But there are many types of tables. Different materials used to make them; different styles; different sizes. Some tables serve different purposes to others and tables have varying degrees of significance. For instance, the coffee table I have at home is just used to put read newspapers and magazines on, and often to rest a beverage container.
It isn't a place of congregation like a dinner table. The coffee table is just sort of, there. Nobody really pays it conscious attention; it just exists and does it's job. It holds no real significance. Unlike aforementioned dinner table, which hold significance in terms of congregation, gatherings. I eat my Christmas dinner at the dinner table. An annual gathering at which more meticulously-prepared food is dined on, is eaten at the dinner table, yet the coffee table is buried underneath all the torn-open wrapping paper.
Whilst we as people do not appreciate the coffee table, there is about 8 or 9 kittens that are just starting to run around. They look at that very coffee table that is so unassuming to us human beings, and they see so much more. They see a wealth of opportunities for fun. They see much more than us.
That, for me, is how this song defines the human experience. Look around us, and you'll see vast cities full of tall buildings, long, winding roads, automobiles. Look up and you may see an aeroplane, effortlessly carrying a group of people through the sky to their destination. We've built such wonders in this civilisation. We, as humans, have achieved previously-unimaginable things. When we see something as simple and unassuming as a coffee table, we see a few pieces of wood - probably with a few Tea stains on it - that largely goes unnoticed. Something we might toss a used newspaper onto.
But something as simple-minded as a fledgling feline sees so much more.
That is how us sentient beings compare to tables. We have spent so much more resources, time, and brain-power creating things that aren't even half as useful as a table. Tables are vast in variety. They serve different uses. But those seen as simple and unnoticeable, are often the ones that impact our lives on a more quantitative basis than things that we think we care more about.
How does Kim Kardashian affect our lives? Barely. She's just on the T.V every 3 times we look at it. Achieving fame for barely anything at all. She is not a coffee table. She isn't even a dinner table. She's the glass table out in my back yard that never gets used. It's just there and nobody knows why. The coffee tables are the really valuable people.

For some reason this made me cry a little....
