It seems that they were REALLY freaked out by the time one of them ventured on the list and fell on a lyrics-and-their-meaning discussion. I remember Peter telling me something similar about how he read it for a while but disagreed with the interpretations that were given by some workers  and so dropped off. Like they were appalled by the far-fetched stuff some workers wrote. But hey, songs typically have room for interpretation, and if you don't like ours, we'd LOVE for you to correct it.
