My InterpretationUnlike some various other respondents, ns don"t view this as being around the childhood innocence us all used to have, but now the we"ve grown up we"ve seen the light. Rather the opposite. I check out it as a man who has actually grown up, and wishes he might regain the liberty that youngsters have; the liberty not to have to fit into the system and become something nobody ever wanted come be. Part of the beauty of being a kid is you deserve to not conform, and people tho love you and also look ~ you. Once you"re one adult, if friend don"t conform, girlfriend suffer.So I view this together a critique of our culture and a manifest for not taking the location we"re an alleged to sit tho in after we "grow out of" our yearning for something better. If in our society growing increase is combing her hair, shining your shoes, ending up being a good boy scout, and wanting the best amount, then, crap it, ns don"t wanna flourish up.
