Your daily source of news & videos on science & religion since 2007
I've always liked this song but i really wished the video would have had something to do with the song lyrics. I don't see the connection between the people in a tree and... well... anything.
Unholy hoax :-D
Great song and album, don't really think it should be tagged in humour tho...(I went to Andy Partridges house as a baby with my old man :) )
I interpreted the tree as the system of religion, with the people clinging to their deep rooted beliefs...notice at the end the only people left in the tree were the "old folks", whereas the younger people left their beliefs (willingly or not) as their sytem was shaken...perhaps to litereral but meh...it works ;)
...and yeah...loved the song too. Even better than Sarah Mclachlan's or Tricky's cover of it.
"Arviragus" I think your interpretation is correct, I missed that on my first viewing, thanks.
