This song always seemed to me to be about something or somewhere you know that isnt quite what it appears or pretends to be, something sinister lurking beneath it - a bit like the Truman Show? Dunno if that makes sense . . .

Anyway, I've used images from 50's and 60's America - the old 'Ozzie and Harriet' picture postcard society but underneath it were serious social changes such as the Civil Rights movement, McCarthyism, Vietnam etc etc. It is not meant as a political commentary at all but a reflection of what the song says to me. Perhaps it's because it appears on the Buffalo Skinners album right after 'The Selling of America' that I see it this way.

'Well dog, I know we're not in Kansas anymore!'

Thanks Dorothy, moving swiftly on . . .

It's actually a bit roughly done as well and I'm not too happy with it but I dont want to dwell on this one and I'm moving on to something a bit more upbeat for my next one. Great song from a great band though. Check out the Buffalo Skinners album for more like this . . .
