Poses

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song is about Wainwright's fear of success. He fears what his future self will be and is worried he will fall into the showbiz stuff and end up wandering around New York drunk, a nobody. (thanks, Davis - Montreal, Canada)
