Lost in the Flood

There's a new song up on my band's MySpace-site. I'm rather proud of it, so you might want to give it a listen.

We play Springsteen songs. We're not aiming for the note-perfect xerox-copies of the originals but try to play the songs the best way we can. This song I think we succeeded pretty well. It's one of Springsteen's best songs in my opinion with somewhat cryptic but very strong lyrics. Though what he means by "Nun's run bald through Vatican Halls, Pregnant, pleading Immaculate Conception" is anybody's guess.

So (I hope this isn't too dumb a question) which instrument are you on? Or are you vocals?

I play bass. A little backing vocals too.

The meaning of springsteen's lyric's are really not about anyone's guess but are instead absolutely clear.

the song is about the breakdon of societal morality and the lack of any kind of welfare or responsibility on the part of our leaders.

The line "nuns run bald through vatican hall pleading immaculate conception" plays right on this theme. Think carefully about it and I think you'll figure it out.
