"Indoor Games" as written by Peter John Sinfield and Robert Fripp....
Indoor fireworks amuse your kitchen staff
Dusting plastic garlic plants
They snigger in the drought
When you ride through the parlor
Wearing nothing but your armor
Playing Indoor Games

One string puppet shows amuse
Your sycophantic friends
Who cheer your rancid recipes
In fear they might offend
Whilst you loaf on your sofa
Sporting falsies and a toga
Playing Indoor Games, Indoor Games

Your mean teetotum spins arouse your seventh wife
Who pats her sixty little skins
And re-insures your life
Whilst you sulk in your sauna
'cause you lost your jigsaw corner
Playing Indoor Games, Indoor Games

Each afternoon you train baboons to sing
Or swim in purple perspex water wings
Come Saturday jump hopper, Chelsea brigade
High bender-trender it's all Indoor Games

No ball bagatelle incites
Your children to conspire
They slide across your frying pan
And fertilize your fire
Still you and Jones go madder
Broken bones-broken ladder
Hey Ho

    General Commentkmcook, as far as the lyrics are concerned, you're spot on, it is chopper. As for the meaning, it's a put-down of the decadent rich with more power then they deserve and nothing really worthwhile to occupy their time (probably living on daddy's money and/or fame). A few songs of the late sixties had a similar theme. One that springs to mind is 'Freedom Come, Freedom Go' - I can't remember who it's by, but some of the lyrics include 'Dady is a doctor, mother is a debutante, pillars of society living in a mansion somewhere in the country and another in Chelsea' and 'Freedom is her name and Freedom is her nature, Freedom is a sunny day - Freedom never does do what she doesn't want to, Freedom never has to pay'
