INTERPRETATIONS OF THE LYRICS TO: WATCH FOR FALLING ANGELS!

A possible interpretation of the lyrics to:
WATCH FOR FALLING ANGELS!

Meaning. What does meaning mean? A major aspect of the Philadelphia Spirit Experiment is the relationship between words and meaning. If you are at a total loss, you may want to check out the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein. In the mean time, here is a view. We welcome your view, too.

Song #1 -- "You've Gotta Get There First"

First stanza:

Tell me where you're from, and I'll tell you where to go from here.

Meaning:
If you tell me where you are(on the path to finding "the meaning of life,") I would be more than happy to help get to the next milestone.

Stanza 2:

No matter how far, how close, or how near.

Meaning:
It does not matter if you are just taking your first "baby step," or if you are running right beside me, I will try to help you to the next plateau.

Stanza 3:

Ohhhh, I ...

Meaning:
My frustration lies with people that don't even try to walk.

Stanza 4:

The paths ahead are clear to see ... at least they appear that way to me.

Meaning:
What must be done to understand the meaning of life is so obvious, how about to you?

Stanza 5:

No matter which one that you choose, you can end up as a loser.

Meaning:
The particular path that you choose is not the important point ... but, still ... choose at least one path to venture down.

Stanza 6:

It's what you do on the path that counts ... not what you do on the way back.

Meaning:
It is your intention while on the path that counts. Don't worry about what will happen after you die(or after you make any decision for that matter), because...

Stanza 7:

You've gotta get there first !

Meaning:
Quit coming up with excuses. Quit looking at all the possible ramifications. Just do it !Stanza 8:

So, ya tripped...? So, ya slipped...? So, ya fell on your chin? Well, that's no reason to do it again.

Meaning:
So what if you fall down? There is no need to base your future on your own past mistakes.

Stanza 9:

Same old sin

Meaning:
The sad part of human nature is the repetition.

Stanza 10:

Tell me where you're from, and I'll tell you where to go from here.

Meaning:
Once again, a helping hand is being extended to you.

Stanza 11:

My place? My place is very, very near.

Meaning:
If you are scared or confused, I can show you how things look from my place... and, my place is very near.

Stanza 12:

Come with me, my dear... I'll show ya how it will be, with me !

Meaning:
I know you must be saying, "what is he talking about." So, please come with me. I will try to explain what "it" is that I am talking about.
