wilbur playing 'the fall' with only four strings on his guitar and an out of practice voice is the perfect analogy for my mental health right now.

the fall - lyrics analysis
helloooo the fall hit STUPIDLY hard for me, as someone politically conscious who lives in the general area being referred to in the song. so here's a little analysis of what the song is about from a local pov, bc you probably... won't get it if you're not from around here
Under the weight of a broken nose It's not that simple but he won't seem to notice There must be more to this So leave those sinker states and Let's book a holiday We're painting all the counties in blue 'Cause we're already boring And we're already hoarding What else have we got left to accrue?
this part opens by talking about the wealthy who are growing apathetic with life. they book holidays, travelling aimlessly - they're already hoarding wealth to the point that they've run out of things to do with it. they've convinced their local areas to continue to vote for the conservatives ("painting all the counties in blue") because it benefits them - it's worth noting that most counties around here were historically very left wing, but in recent years they've fallen hard for propaganda. they're now bored of those areas having sucked all the money out of them, they're wondering what else they can do to get more money, that's all they devote their lives to.
And the ramblers will say: "It's got a marvelous view" But we don't know how many lives it took, no Thеy'll never know what you knew
the "ramblers" here are referring to walkers in the area - the song specifies the pennines later. the pennines are a very hilly part of central england which attracts a lot of people to come here on walks, we also have a lot of old country homes. the people walking around just look at these old houses and think how lovely they are, how lucky someone must be to own one, without thinking about the suffering of the poor required for anyone to acquire enough wealth to own one.
And wе're so calm but we're (fucking scared, fucking scared) And we're so calm but we're (fucking scared, fucking scared) And we're so calm but we're (fucking scared, fucking scared) And we're so calm but we're fucking scared of people like you
this could be referring to a few things, but my personal interpretation is that contrary to the civilised front the rich put up, they're terrified of what the rest of us could do if they ever fully achieved class consciousness. they don't want to lose their wealth. we all know how the rich are infamously stingy, right? they're not gonna give that up. they're scared.
Under the weight of some Sertraline A couple Prozacs and now I'm pumping dopamine There must be more to this We've got a country house now Old dog has been put down now It's nice to be your entry Custom licence plate On our Audi R8 How many grocers does one county need?
again, they're bored. they're on antidepressants and feeling apathetic, they don't know what more they can do with their lives. they've got one of those country houses, they've got a nice car with a custom registration. the final line really shows the disparity between the wealthy and the rest of us: it is not at all common to see greengrocers' in most of the UK, only supermarkets, and if you do they're expensive as hell. so for somebody to complain about there being too many greengrocers in one area? they are definitely out of touch.
And the ramblers will say: "It's still a marvellous view" But the treadmill still loops Your hedonic misuse
ohh yes. my favourite part. the hedonic treadmill refers to how even after experiencing a series of catastrophies, humanity will inherently adapt to some level of normalcy and content (like how we all just... got used to there being a global pandemic). the ramblers can't bring themselves to care no matter how the rich continue to fuck them over, they just continue to think "what a lovely view, i'd love to be able to afford that one day". and of course "hedonic misuse" also doubles to referring to how malicious the rich are, how they're wasting their money on these frivolous things like in the previous verse when they could be helping.
So come on, one and all to see the apathy The rings of graced dead souls that fill the tapestry
many of these country homes are even open to look around as tourists! come on in, have a look at how they're squandering your money. how many people have died in poverty to get these people to where they are today, and how they're now nothing more than pretty ornaments for the rich to show off.
I look to all of you and see a different fucking species Aspiration for a different destination to me
the rich don't even see us as human, especially those of us who don't aspire to the same level of wealth as them.
Across the Pennines, thin blue line and the night for The Fall
the pennines are directly named here. "thin blue line" has several connotations. firstly i'm pretty sure you can see the sea from some of the hills in the pennines, it might also be referring to the trails marked on maps. but of course "thin blue line" also refers to defence of the police in america, a cause which is often backed by the wealthy, because cops keep the wealthy in power. cops prevent "the fall" - the downfall of the rich. they're not on our side.
Would do something, if it wasn't also half my fault
maybe some of them are self aware! but they don't do anything. they've contributed to this and they're so obsessed with maintaining their wealth that they're not going to give up now. the whole "well i would do something, but [excuse]" is also very in line with the running theme of apathy in the song. anything to avoid helping the poor.
'Cause I'm so high, my brain can't even look at The Fall And when you've reached the top there's nowhere else to go but-
finally, another really nice double meaning. it can refer to literally climbing the hills of the pennines, but also the fact that the rich are so obsessed with building their wealth that they lose sight of everything else. they can't even see their own downfall coming because they don't think about the common people, we're just insects to them. but eventually that breaking point will come, and there's nowhere left for them to go but down.
in conclusion: i like this song. it's good.

Lovejoy posted the breakdown of "The Fall" on their community tab on Youtube!
So come on, one and all and see the apathy The reems of grey stencil that fills the tapestry I look to all of you and see a different fucking species Aspiration for a different destination to me Across the pennines there's a thin blue line, a knife and a mall I would do something if it wasn't all so effortful Cos I'm so high my brain can't even look at the fall And when you've reached the top there's nowhere else to go but...
