Re: The Noose...
Springsteen's song "Loose Ends" has a verse about him and someone else putting a noose around each other's neck and each one pulling tighter and one being left on the loose end.
One of his current songs on MAGIC has the line:
"There's bodies hanging from the tress."
My goodness, always such nice imagery, eh?
Anyway, seems the noose's are showing up as of late.
