One of the most striking tracks on American Doll Posse is "Girl Disappearing". While reluctant to tell the stories behind individual tracks, Amos says that in "Girl", the character Clyde is running, and what she’s running away from depends on the listener. (Melbourne Age, May 11, 2007)

"It isn’t us women that have created this war. It isn’t us women on the whole that are in the powerful positions — overtly anyway. I think we should be — I think we need to permeate all institutions of power, and it’s time that we are active. There was once black-on-black, and now there is bitch-on-cunt, and that’s very disturbing. I address that, too, within the records, whether that’s from ’Teenage Hustling’ or ’Girl Disappearing.’" (VenusZine, June 1, 2007)
