"This Isn't Our Parade" as written by John Hill, Santi White, Dave Sitek and Nick Zinner....
This time, I'll comfort
I saw you standing
And I am by your cage
I think you should wait now
I hear you calling
I'm reaching you my hand
I can hear you now
I can hear you calling

And I say hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Won't you come down?
Won't you come down?
This isn't our parade

This time all we heard
Forever blending
I bridle all my rage
You won't make me buy that
And I hear you calling
No, you won't understand
But I'm near you now
I can see you falling

    General CommentI think this is to someone imprisoned, somehow.
    Either by choice (drugs) or accident (legal system) or both.
    She comforts, she encourages, she hides her anger,
    but there is nothing she can do.
    She tries to help, but can do nothing but watch
