Song: Horror Show

Theory:

I think this song is about how we are all living in a big horror show in our
messed up world. All the stuff that is happening to us is weird and strange
like a freak show and he wants to escape - "Banish me and mine to outer
space" - to space to breathe and get away from all the craziness here. It
seems like all the weird stuff that happens to us in this horror show (our
world) is going on while someone else is watching (maybe like a god or
something) but there is no one watching - "we are all alone in this horror
show" - in reality it is just us out there living our strange lives.

Theory:

I think this song is about living life and wanting to be yourself and get
away from everything and about the consequences. There is always something
holding us back from what we want.

Song: Horror Show

Theory:

"Since I was a little kid I tried to get out of my head trapped on the
playground I would stare at the sky"...well what hes trying to say there is
how when you're realy young and you're just starting out in the world how
everything just scares the shit out of you and you find yourself staring out
into space to get away from it all. The song in general is how life in
general is so fucked up and distorted sometimes that you feel like your
watching a horror show. I think he's also trying to convey his feeling of
being confined on this planet and having no where to go like when he says
"Banish me and mine to outer space I'd shoot there in a second
just for the breathing space" and "Do you feel there's no where to go
we're the bait in a horror show". well thats pretty much my theory except
for that part about Lou Reed at the end. Anyone have any clue about that?

Song: Horror Show

Theory:

This song is about a guy who starts out his life as a litte kid wanting to
be different from everyone else, stated in the lines,

"Since I was a little kid I tried to get out of my head
Trapped on the playground I would stare at the sky"

As he grows older, some people join him and kindof be his followers, while
some just think he's weird and they leave him alone.

"Some conformed
And some tried to escape"

So he creates his own little world where he can have everything his way and
him and his followers rule everything else,

"Banish me and mine to outer space I'd shoot there in a second Just for the
breathing space I'd ut the punks on the moon For head-room Mods rule the
galaxy"

He lives his life with everybody thinking he's wierd and avoiding him and he
enjoys it to the fullest. He is happy that he's different. Sounds like pot
head to me.

Song: Horror Show

Theory:

I believe that the song "Horror Show" is about trying to be an individual
and not letting society swallow you into a world of conformity. However, it
seems to be inevitable, because the only way to achieve our shallow and
materialistic goals is through conformity. But nobody wants to admit it. I
think this can be proved by the line,
"It's a joke that we all know, were the bait in a horror show."
I think that by horror show, he means the world and society. I am probably
totally wrong, but no one else had any theories on this, so I thought I
would attempt to analyze it.

Song: Horrow Show

Theory:

" Banish me and mine to outer space...I'd shoot ther in a second just for the breathing space." 

I think this song is about anyone who ever dared to be a nonconformist or who didn't fit in, and how the rest of this ridiculous society makes those few real people feel like misfits or outcasts, but yet they can't ever keep them down.
