Dave wrote this when he was starting to become famous. Along with his fame came other people's greed. Many people were grabbing for as much money as they could get, and forgot about the real meaning of the music. The song shows how Dave was saddened by it. Key lines include, "All at once the ghosts come back" and "Remember when I used to play for all of the loneliness that nobody notices now". (thanks, Tommy - Southboro, MA)
