Fat Children Took My Life
"I left the North
I travelled South
I found a tiny house
And I can't help the way I feel"
"North and South" - opposing directions, at odds with one another, synomous perhaps in terms of the song with convention and non-convention (straight, gay?)
"Tiny house" - Do I need to spell it out? The protagonist has left North, gone South and found a tiny house? But he can't help the way he feels...
Oh yes, you can kick me
And you can punch me
And you can break my face
But you won't change the way I feel
'Cause I love you
Possible refrence to gay bashing? Violence towards indivduals of non-conventional sexuality? I remember reading in Passion And Scandal about a similar incident that Moz suffered with a friend of his in Manchester.
And is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so strange ?
Oh, is it really so, really so strange ?
I say NO, you say YES
(and you will change your mind)
Does the other partner feel nervous and insecure with admitting his sexuality? He says "YES" it is quite "strange"?
Why is the last mile the hardest mile ?
My throat was dry, with the sun in my eyes
And I realised, I realised
I could never
I could never, never, never, go back home again
Last mile is the hardest mile" - last mile - coming out to your parents, admittance to your siblings.
I could never, never, never, go back home again - parents don't accept, he is cast off in typically ironic style, after attempting to convince his partner to change his mind, which would no doubt lead to a similar fate.
So, what do you think of my theory?
