He's toyed with us a couple of times as to the meaning of his lyrics, worth remembering to that this is a musician who has said some of his favourite interviews have been those where he has not necessarily been truthful.
Sure, I wonder if some of the lyrics in the new album do have any meaning at all. Horses with their heads in the clouds? And how, exactly, does having a sweet toot equate to not having anyone to tell your troubles to?
I get the feeling SOS might be more earnest though.
Who knows though? And isn't that part of the fun? A writer (act) with a penchant for writing in metaphor - we'll probably never know the exact meaning of this song, if there is one. Part of the Finn genius too.
