can you hear.
hear the bell.
the church bell.
the church on the hill.
the sound is off.
it's off the ground.
have you seen.
seen the men.
the dead men.
the office men.
they are men of the sky.
they're off the ground

    General Commentthis message is a lot like 'Ghosts' to me. essentially, modern living has ruined everything (the dead men, the office men). the church bell likely accompanies a funeral. "men of the sky" could refer to angels... though the contrast between the ground and the air is interesting here. i believe it is likely inferring that people today are not "grounded" anymore, reaching for the sky, floating above the real world in some fantasy they (and the society they live in) have constructed to keep them safe, clean, and happy. and ignorant.
