I'd love to do a track-by-track like you guys, but for now just a quick shot.
YOU: The line "You lead me on like a lamb to the slaughter and then
you act like a fish out of water" made me feel dumb to sing along
with even when I was 17.
Would it help to think of "fish" in the sense of a slang term or
symbol for "female" or "female genitals"? and water, being wet, "out
of water" being dry, you see, it all sorts out nicely into one of
JAE's famous risque double-entendres. Worked for me, anyway. I love
Snapshot verdict on FACE DANCES: Once again, John carries the rock
flag (as he has done ever since By Numbers), while Pete introspects
(with mixed results).
