This is prog-rock era Genesis from their last album featuring Peter Gabriel as lead singer. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is a concept album telling the story of the character Rael. In this track, he finds himself trapped in a cage, and spots his brother John. How much is Rael's imagination is open for interpretation.
Genesis performed this on their 2007 world tour. The act consisted of a giant screen and for this song it was a person running, trying to escape the cage which was in front of him.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
