Oppressed?[edit]

I'm deleting the part about the lyrical content. Currently it says: "The song's lyrical content is written from the perspective of those being oppressed and not wanting to get their hopes up in yet another "hero" who may or may not save them."

That interpretation isn't supported by a reference to a source, or the lyrics themselves. There's nothing in the lyrics about being oppressed - in fact the lyrics talk about being "left behind", implying there's no-one else there, oppressor or otherwise. It also makes no reference to hoping for rescue, or waiting for a hero, or not wanting to get their hopes up for a hero because one never comes. I don't know what the lyrics are getting at, but to me it seems like the singer wants a life without violence. THAT's why they don't want "another hero", and also why they hope they can get "Beyond the Thunderdome" (i.e. move beyond settling our disputes by killing each other). My interpretation is a total guess, of course, so I won't put it in, I'll just delete the old one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.165.82.35 (talk) 01:12, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
