Lunatic Fringe - Red Rider

Lunatic Fringe - I know you're out there
You're in hiding, and you hold your meetings
I can hear you coming, and I know what you're after
We're wise to you this time we won't let you kill the laughter
wise to you this tiiimmme

Lunatic Fringe - in the twilight's last gleaming
This is open season, but you won't get too far
'Cause you got to blame someone for your own confusion
We're all on guard this time against the Final Solution
all on guard this time

Oh Yea-a-a


We can hear you coming no, you're not going to win this time
We can hear you coming not gonna win
We can hear the footsteps out along the walkway
We can hear the footsteps out along the walkway
them play

Lunatic Fringe - we all know you're out there
Can you feel the resistance?
Can you feel the thunder?

Oh Yea-a-a

    Red rider was led by guitarist tom cochrane, who had a solo hit in 1991 with "life is a highway. " he wrote this song after reading about raoul wallenberg, who worked to free hungarian jews during world war ii. The song speaks against the oppression of jews in north america, which cochrane felt was far less overt but still disturbing . . . He mentions the "final solution" in the lyrics; a reference to hitler's wish that all jews be eliminated.

    Working your way through a problem and coming to a decision or solution which you fight with inside your head wondering whether it's the right or wrong way because of outer influences. At a certain point you think you are going crazy thinking of every possible scenario. Don't let your inner doubts keep you down and away from happiness & don't give up. Your worst enemy is yourself. Take what you've learned to avoid making the wrong decision. It's a struggle but you can work through it.

    I think some of you need to read interviews with red ryder (the band). The author gives a clear explanation of the meaning... Though some of you might not appreciate its "narrow" intent , lol! Think holocaust. ( i admit, you are free to reinterpret it to fit your own liking... Just don't attribute your interpretation to that of the songwriter).

    I was born in 1962. Seen a lot of fringe in my time. Different groups pushing their beliefs on their beliefs on their fellow man. From the Ayatollah of Iran to hitler to jerry Falwell to satanists to Hollywood assholes like George Clooney to rock asshole rock icons such as Bruce Springsteen whose own right hand is despised by him for not being another left hand. They all have different agendas pretty much but the core mentality they share is that only their views are correct and everyone else is too wicked, blind, uninformed or lost or dimwitted to think for themselves. So they force or try to force the masses to obey their high minded self important beliefs on the sheeple. They truly believe they are of higher mind and the speaker for their personal god. They believe they must rule by force in order to save mankind or the their personal favorite kind of man. They plan plot devise twist and shout and in each of own way and to their own extreme they overbear and separate ridicule and conquer. Till the sleeping dog awakes that is. They get their asses kicked and they scurry off with increasing hatred for those they plot to suppress. Ecclesiastes says there is nothing new under the sun. Meaning history will continue to repeat itself till the end of this earth age and we are all brought to the one and only pure and true master of the masses that has the right way for all to believe. So blah blah blah with all of the deep thought for a time and just rock to the badass song that is the definition of what rock is meant to sound like. No other song comes close to being the ideal rock song and I will jail any of you who thinks differently. You will be hard wired to lunatic fringe until you believe the same. Obey! Listen to Red Ryder and obey!

    Lunatic fringe is any extremist, whether it's attempting genocide or stifling basic human rights. Each of us, individuals, has a cause and can listen with our own personal filters as to what this song would mean for us. As long as you understand where is the lunatic fringe, you can resist the lunacy, keep humanity strong.
