I’ve been listening to this one Bare Naked Ladies song as I drive the hour to work every day. It ends, I listen to news radio for a few minutes and then start it back up. In the middle of the album of typical quirky, happy pop songs the BNL are know for is this haunting lyric. It’s a story song about a window washer on a high rise, but it’s more than that. It’s a metaphor for looking at drastic change, maybe death, and being frightened by possible consequences.
