It's a stop-go situation
It's another of those subjects
The music for "Tightrope" was inspired by the Australian band, Dragon, who I loved then and still do. The lyrics are somewhat obscure, which is not totally unusual for me. I was watching the TV news, and thinking about the balance you would have to find when explaining things to kids, how much reality you can give them without getting them over-worried. By the way, if you listen to the guitar solo, you will hear that Tone went to considerable trouble to make it sound like someone trying to balance on tightrope, and he does a great job.
