    General Commentthis song means a lot to me. upon first hearing it brought pictures of an invaision. then with time brought about anger towards the media, all all the harm it has brought on. corruptness and sentiment among the common man pretty much sums it up.

    General Commentamazing song, it's epic and it has very true and artistic writing.

    This song is about how the media are really disrespectful towards victims of tragedies. some members of the media only want the stories regardless of how the people feel about them and they show those casualties no respect.

    in terms of the Greendale concept: grandpa is hiding out from the media at Earl and Edith's place after he ran away from them, they show up at the house he's hiding at, he's annoyed and they won't leave him alone so he fires off a shotgun, and then has a heart attack and dies.

    sun green also visits jed in jail in this song

    I would highly reccommend the Greendale film to fans of Neil Young, especially of this album. This song is really well done in the movie
