"Is It Safe?" as written by and Turner/maida/eacrett/lanni....
Time can't fix it fast enough,
So we won't notice what it was that went wrong
I saw something there much too familiar
A butterfly with a broken wing
She's fallen under, she's past the end,
Communication is down again
The scars have healed but they're back again
We've got to believe this man must bend
Because if you could you'd try and destroy her
And there we would be with nothing at all
Is it safe to be a man
When your tired and lonely
Only the confident know where to stand
Is it safe to be man
When the world is loaded with thousands
That can't figure out just what they did
Time can't fix it fast enough,
So we won't measure just how far below you kept pushing her
You'll have to pay back all of the years that you stole
She's walking backwards,
She's spun around her ears are ringing loud,
How does it feel, does it make you mad?
She's on her knees
Please understand how obvious it is
That this man must bend

    General Commentbecause of the last two lines in particular, "she's on her knees ,please understand how obvious it is that this man must bend", i get the impression that this song is about a situation where someone is being 'broken' in spirit or actions to do something or believe something they didnt want to because so many others feel that way. And i think that fits in with many other songs they have written.

    General CommentI don't know. This gives me the idea of a man, trying to live up to everyone else's expectations of what a man should be. And he had a really, really difficult life. And she's like him, but is asking, "is it safe to be a woman?"

    Maybe they're in love?
