this is steve hacketts leaving present. the many too many refernce perhaps referin to other guitarists who had been in his position and left previously like anthony phillips. the part about bein locked up i guess is about his frustration at bein left out of the musical process more and more as time passed. he ended up with less imput in the group bein left with short solo's towards the end of his run. -not sure about the use of mama in this song. the jist remains that he was unhappy bein in the band. i read somewhere that hackett actually did say goodbye on a corner to phil shortly before bein due to play... sad really, i liked hacketts parts. good solo run after tho'! he's always re-using genesis stuff like blood on the rooftops and los endos.
