Thoughts & Meanings
Well, this is a tough one, because the lyrics are gorgeous- but this song's lyrics hint at demonic possession, or hypnotism, at the very least. To "Stand in line like a parking meter" can signify someone about to be acted upon, for a parking meter is an object that cannot flee from the place it's at. A man "who's awfully nice" but "isn't there" could be either the adversary or a hallucination suffered by a person afflicted with multiple-personality disorder. To be a "fly in a cup of tea" is to trapped in something deadly, though that death will be slow. The "other life that was borrowed the other night" sounds like possession.
