"How Much For You Wings?" as written by and Christopher Mark/robinson Robinson....
How much for your wings?
How much for your wings?
Well it comes and it goes
How much for your wings?
And it's high and low
How much for your wings?
I can name a price
How much for your wings?
Many forget their pride

[Chorus:]
If I were you and and you were me
we'd know
And could it be what you perceive
is wrong?
And what I mean what wrong could be
I don't know
I'm not naive but I believe
So I may grow

How much for your wings?
The soul you kiss good-bye
How much for your wings?
Watch the stars collide

How does it feel
When you're the only one?

    My InterpretationThis song is especially heavy and very much aligned with a recurring theme for the band, being themselves in a business (and it applies to our society, as well) that reduces humans to numbers and implores people to follow the masses.

    I assume the chorus is an allusion to the beliefs that, when we die and enter heaven, we become angels, so the "wings" herein are the same as the soul. If "how much for your soul" were in fact the question, then the response was basically "how much is yours?" If I were you and you were me, we might have a better idea how mismatched or aligned our beliefs and our values are, but without it, we can never truly know (despite how often our perceptions lead us to feel as though we do).

    The next question is "could it be what you believe is wrong," and the answer was "sure, but my beliefs are ever-evolving and they have gotten me this far so I'll stick with them."

    The last question is "How does it feel when you're the only one?" That question is ours to answer independently because you are the only one of you there is or ever will be.
