Tiptoe Lyrics

In the morning light, Let my roots take flight
Watch me from above, Like a vicious dove
They don't see me come, who can blame them?
They never seem to catch my eye but I never wondered why
I won't fall asleep, I won't fall asleep

    I see it as an individual who's going to be great but is climbing secretly. Tiptoe higher, don't let them know were coming, keep your head down low... At least that's what I saw.

    I think that it is a song about routing for success and making sure no one gets in the way of you making your dreams come true and being successful. By using the word tip toe it could interpret that they don't want anyone to know that they are going for their dreams - a song about not giving up perhaps

    That actually sounds like a good explanation, now that you bring it to my attention. . .

    I was wondering if anybody else agreed with me. I think this song is related to the Vietnam War. The part about a vicious dove? During the war there were hawks and doves. Hawks were for the war and doves were against it, but started rioting after the tet offensive. The tet was an invasion on a holiday by the vietnamese. that would explain why some parts say " dont let them see we're coming". And also some parts talk about flying. During the vietnam war there were many helicopters in use which would explain that. Does anyone agree? Or do i sound crazy?
