"Neon Crossing" as written by and Turner/maida/eacrett/lanni....
All you people can feel it waiting
Innocence and love, wrapped in the arms of the burning neon
I feel it, I feel it
It's so entertaining and so wonderful
It magically calls for you
Big neon crossing show me the way
Save my soul today
Don't you worry and don't be afraid
Does it send you to the world appealing
Where there is spoken word that I can't take
So I'm the liar, I'm the liar
You'd be so disappointed
To find out that the magic was not
Really meant for you

    General CommentTo me, this is a song about organized religion. Specifically Christianity (big neon crossing), but perhaps just religion in general.

    'It's so entertaining and so wonderful, it magically calls for you and you...'

    It's like this guy has rediscovered God, and it's just this irresistable pull that drives him, and everyone is welcoming him.

    'Saved my soul today.'

    The guy feels revived- his soul is saved now, and God seems to have all the answers for what ails him.

    'Where there is the spoken word that I can't take,
    so I'm the liar, I'm the liar.'

    The guy realizes he doesn't like something about this church. Perhaps it's the sermons he disagrees with, but he doesn't like it, and begins to talk about it. People are shocked, and trying to shame him- he's the liar because he disagrees with the church.

    'You're so disappointed to find out that the magic was not really meant for you.'

    The guy finds his illusion falling, and he becomes disenchanted with the church, and possibly even with God, and returns back to his old, athiestic/agnostic ways.

    It can be put into a general formula- person gets really hyped on something, finds there is an aspect that is not kosher, and rejects it returning to what they were before.

    General CommentI've read somewhere that it was indeed about organized religion. Raine likes to target religion in about 1/2 of his earlier work (Spiritual Machines and before). Not to say he isn't spiritual though. But he doesn't believe in the concept of organizing it,

    My InterpretationI agree with biggreenmonkey. It really does seem to be about organized religion. However, for the longest time I always thought of "neon crossing" being as a sign for a bar. Any sort of sign with neon basically, like a bar or a casino. And the line "save my soul today" where the person goes to a bar to drink as a way to escape, or to a casino to gamble and have some fun. I see how stupid that is now though :P Anyways, this is a great song and one of the best off of Naveed
