Pulling a string in tin can telephones
Through what does it run
And who is hearing?
Do you keep holding on
The can up against your ear
Imagine all the terrain
Between your ear and the other ear

    General CommentI think the song might be about communication through various mediums, like art. "through what does it run/ and who is hearing" would be referencing those who are listening and paying attention to your work whom you don't even know. Imagining "all the terrain" would be realizing how different these people are, the different experiences which make them different from you. "Do you keep holding on?" -Do you continue to express yourself even though you don't know if anyone is listening?

    General Commentit is obviously about the progressive pseudo patriarchal values that dictate the media in which we subject ourselves to daily.
