Anti-war song | Reviewer: MAS | 3/4/13
I read some explanations of this song: It is an anti-war statement. It describes the Establishment's (denoted by the "Queen") efforts to pigeon-hole us, by using the media ("news") to get us focused on our own selves. Hence, "Take a straighter, stronger course to the CORNER of our lives"!
Good Song | Reviewer: Taylor | 11/9/07
I think this song is based on Through the Looking Glass, the second Alice in Wonderland book by Lewis Carroll. The whole book is a chess game, and Alice joins the game as a pawn, but makes her way through the board to become a queen.
