Interesting. I was wondering what people thought the whole song was about as
it is probably the best MO song EVER! Its seems quite apocalyptic (the world
is dying, the ship is sinking) most of the way through but then it seems
quite defiant "we won't be jammed against your wall"! Makes me jump around
and yell "NO,NO,NO!" But why? What's the point of the song? Anyone got any
