That's the thing about this song: It's the perfect brand of melancholy, and its literal only message is to get you to WASH AWAY ALL THE SHIT PILING UP IN YOUR HEAD.

Side note: This sweater stars in a scene in which Hilary and her friends are, too, watching a music video for "Come Clean" – starring Hilary Duff. Synergy! Meta commentary! Inception!
