"Flicker" as written by and Kevin Harrison....
Nothing is new here underneath the sun
All of the big new charlatans will sneer at us
Barely a flicker of the light to come
Only the people who always think they know best

Nothing is new here underneath the sun
All of the big new charlatans will sneer at us
Barely a flicker of the light to come
Only the people who always think they know best

    General CommentI like this song even more now, knowing the slightly unusual method of lyric writing :)

    My InterpretationIt's about going to one of those bars, that you find trickled all over every city.
    Filled with underage teens and people who always think they know best.
    You've seen it a thousand times and you know it won't be any different this time. But you don't care, it's barely a flicker of what's to come. You're out to get drunk and have fun, so you get in there and go nuts. You dance around like a stick in the wind, you talk like an idiot. You laugh at all big new charlatans! While they simply sneer at you.

    It makes sad out of a happy song.
