no problem mick.
it certainly is a song that gets one thinking..
when I first heard it 20years ago, I wondered about what was behind the writing of the song. (ie. is it surprise at ones own willingness for violence in defense of a loved one, in spite of nonviolent beliefs
or about knowing who your true friends are etc)
why dont the others intervene, I can understand fear of the bully or possibly just not wanting to get involved. But why dont they help him out the door afterwards.. It would seem theres no reason to fear Clary now..
