Hey now hold on
Is this what we really, really want
Or what we are told
All the greats have lead paths of glory
But look at them now
Emaciated on the museum wall
Summed up in a language of decay
For a public far away
Invite the voyeurs with their noblesse oblige
On display in the glare
Is it really meant to be this way
Is it our destiny to be
So instead lets get strong
I dont want tourists flocking to my heart
And nesting with all my things
Ive got wings but they arent meant for viewing

    General CommentGreat tune about a former band and wanting to stay out of the public spotlight.

    General CommentThis song predates Clues, and was written as a response to "Let's Get Known", a Unicorns' song.
    Let's Get Known was funny and ironic, while this is super serious business.

    General Commenthas a similar tune as the unicorns song "let's get known" and the lyrics seem to be a response to it

    General CommentI interpreted the last line as a response to Islands "Bucky Little Wing", which I always thought was about Alden. In other words post-Unicorns.
