"Is It For Me?" as written by and Dinning/guss/phillips/nichols....
Bradley says it's haunted
The house upon the hill
And if we meet at four a.m.
Then we would know for sure

We carry the ladders
And lean them against it
And climb them as we look

Someone kicked a ladder
Bradley took a spill
Said his leg was broken
So we dragged him down the hill

And through the door
What do I see?
Something is happening
Is it for me?

Mom found out the whole thing
Mine was first to call
Bradley's leg healed badly
At least he still can walk

We leave in the morning
And no one will hear us
And meet in the clearing
And I'll bring the sandwiches

David come quickly
You're missing the whole thing
Now open your big eyes
And take in the sunrise

And through the door
What do I see?
Something is happening
Is it for me?

    General Commentthis song is related to 'Walk on the Ocean' the first song on Fear. It is about a group of kids who sneak out and go peaking in the window of a whore house. Some one kick out the ladder and they ran away, Bradly breaking his leg...poor guy.

    My InterpretationWhat an amazing band. I always hoped I'd get a chance to see them in concert, but life keeps popping up obstacles.

    I've always thought this song's initial plot has a couple of possible interpretations, each of which I've imagined when I've heard it (depending on my mood)

    - The house was in actuality a brothel, and the kids got quite an eyeful before one of the 'guards' came around to kick the ladder

    - As they carry Bradley down the hill, the protagonist turns and sees something through the door that he can't explain...so could the house have really been haunted all along?

    Ultimately, the song is about the reckless innocence of youth -- the wild imaginations, doing things you're not supposed to do...living your life in the now, because the minute you become an adult, it all stops and responsibilities kick in.
