Says a lot

Sunday 6/25/23

I wrote for luck

They sent me you

I sent for juice

You gave me poison

I hold the line

You form a queue

I've been listening to many versions of the Happy Mondays' "Wrote for Luck" of late--the album version, live versions, different mixes, a soundcheck version. Regarding the above lyrics, it seems to me that people inclined to form a queue wouldn't understand these lines at all--they'd fly right past them. Whereas, the much rarer kind of person who holds a line would recognize the profundity of the distinction. All people break down into one of the two camps. Do you form the queue or do you hold the line?
