    General CommentI can't beleive...well I can but it just shouldn't be...that no one else has posted on this song. Whatever.

    It's about how people are forced to do what they don't want and act like someone they aren't, just to be accepted or to avoid being looked down on--"That's the last one/of these gunfights/you're ever gonna drag me to/"

    It might let down other people but it's better for you as a person--"everyone hissed and booed"
    I think Petty means this as an allegory; the lines "And there ain't been a gunfight for a long time/maybe never, nobody knowd for sure"-it's lkike he's illustrating an example.

    Let me know of I'm wrong here.

    General CommentThis is a highly underrated Tom Petty song. I believe this song is about thinking for yourself and questioning things that you've never questioned before. Many people go through life like zombies without actually thinking about or questioning what they are doing. They do what they've always done and or what is expected of them. Sometimes change is difficult and it often displeases the masses. When just one person takes a stand for what he believes is right it often changes the course of history. This song is brilliant.
