Default Re: MIND CONTROL AND THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Independence Day
Bruce Springsteen

Well papa go to bed now it's getting late
Nothing we can say is gonna change anything now
I'll be leaving in the morning from st. mary's gate
We wouldn't change this thing even if we could somehow
`cause the darkness of this house has got the best of us
There's a darkness in this town that's got us too
But they can't touch me now
and you can't touch me now
They ain't gonna do to me
what i watched them do to you


So say goodbye it's independence day
It's independence day all down the line
Just say goodbye it's independence day
It's independence day this time

Now i don't know what it always was with us
We chose the words and yeah we drew the lines
There was just no way this house could hold the two of us
I guess that we were just too much of the same kind

Well say goodbye it's independence day
All boys must run away come independence day
So say goodbye it's independence day
All men must make their way come independence day

Now the rooms are all empty down at frankie's joint
And the highway she's deserted down to breaker's point
There's a lot of people leaving town now
Leaving their friends their homes
At night they walk that dark and dusty highway all alone

Well papa go to bed now it's getting late
Nothing we can say can change anything now
Because there's just different people coming down here now
And they see things in different ways
And soon everything we've known will just be swept away

So say goodbye it's independence day
Papa now i know the things you wanted that you could not say
But won't you just say goodbye it's independence day
I swear i never meant to take those things away

In Peace,
BlueAngel

In my opinion, the singer/songwriter has a theme in many songs that displays a distorted perception as to whom it is THEY can't touch anymore.

What is it that he watched them do to his father?

What did THEY and his father do to him to produce the verse, YOU (father) and THEY can't touch me now?

Who are THEY?
