Story behind the song
On December 3, 1979 eleven people were killed and dozens injured when fans lined up outside a venue where a Who concert was to take place mistook their soundcheck for the start of the concert and rushed the doors to enter the arena. I wrote this song the morning after...as a scathing slam to those selfish souls who caused the massacre.
Get up! Show me the door! Things are getting’ crazy ‘round here Wake up! Don’t wanna see any more! This fighting’s just too much for me These ain’t the things I wanna see I’m choking, got no breathing room Can’t make me live inside your tomb Pent up! Like a bird in a cage People live their lives without a dream Caught up! In the webs of their minds No longer can I keep inside This raging fire won’t let me hide So many things I’ve yet to see The future holds enough for me Can you see? Past the end of your nose there’s a whole world lying there Can you see? If you’d only believe me I’m sure you’d come to care Can you see? After all these years you’d think we’d both agree Can you see?
