Music Video: The Shins

The Shins make me grin wide and scratch my befuddled head at the same time. What do these lyrics mean?

Frozen into coats,
White girls of the North,
Fire past one, fire the one,
They are the fabled lambs,
A Sunday ham,
The ancient snow.

I still don’t know exactly what the whole song is about, but this video provides some vivid stories to illustrate it.

Can anyone suggest an interpretation?
