This song, like several others on Acid Tongue, is partly about suicide. It includes the lines "I will never forgive you/For what you put us kids through/Remember that night/You tried to take your own life?/When I found you/You were a shade of blue." The Independent newspaper September 25, 2008 asked Lewis where the lines came from. She replied: "I don't know where that comes from. Perhaps it goes back to post-1982 (when Lewis was 6 and a child actress who was the breadwinner for her messed up divorced mother). Being around people that had lost their will to live. Which is really heavy when you're a little kid. To really not understand what's going on, but to be faced with someone who has clearly given up hope. It left me with this weird, skewed perception."
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
