|And who said anything about someone being guilty of murder in that song? Or guilty of anything, for that matter?|
Heh heh, I wasn't talking really about the song per se, but other similar things I've heard. I just had to spew my venom somehow. But just giving a quick read on the lyrics, I can see someone talking about being separated from someone who's jailed ("They shut the bars down, leave you to the gloom"), and wishing to see him/her ("So high is the wire
and the guards won't listen / They won't believe me"). I believe Ugo's interpretation is correct. Mike's lyrics, in general, aren't famous for double entendres, metaphors and puns - to put it mildly.
I just have a strong dislike for songs about prisons. If the fella is imprisoned, it's most probably his fault, so blaming the wires and guards smells like hipocrisy to me.
And also, I never heard any kind of pain and sadness in it, just an ocean of synthpop atmosphere. Now 'Magic Touch', THAT one has a lot of pain in it! Just listening to the first few seconds makes my eardrums scream in pain.
