Come Along Lyrics
Sit with me on a muddy clump,
We'll sing a song of days gone by.
Run along now don't be glum,
Get you gone now have some fun,
Don't be long for the end is nigh.
Don't let moments pass along and waste before...

I think it’s like a darker Peter Pan vibe. Don’t get me wrong, Peter Pan in and of its self is pretty messed up, but it is kind of like a song a villain would sing to lure children into his enchanted forest. Idk, but I’m lovin’ it!

It’s a brilliant and sly, joyful anthem to mortality. Life is brief; get your asses moving and live each moment fully. The lyrics are poetic, the music irresistably infectious.

I mean, I imagine this song to be like a dream. It mentions heffalumps, which they are evil in ways. But they are also mentioned in Piglet and Pooh’s dreams and they would have to have dreamed to get to it. The vibe is very..aesthetic and foggy. Thanks for your time!

I heard it was about lice which is just creepy if you ask me because just imagine listening to a song and liking it just to find out it’s a song about lice that to me is just disgusting!

I think this is a Winnie the Pooh thing. It mentions a heffalump, which is in Winnie the Pooh. It also mentions some stuff that is in Winnie the Pooh, and has that type of vibe to it.

I think it could mean someone who has schizophrenia is trying to escape a heavy depression with not taking their pills and seeing this imaginary world with this imaginary person to follow them to a good place but said place to the real world is like a bridge or high building roof. It sounds really dark but just think about it..
To me this song is an escape from the staleness of reality. It is a trip into the strange and magical world lurking in everyone's subconscious. Our dreams are the only place where we are truly free to be submerged in the wild things we think in the back of our minds. It is an adventure; an escape from our boring routines. One place where this is obvious to me is when it says: "Run along now, don't be glum Get you gone, now, have some fun Don't be long, for the end is nigh. Because your dreams let you run free, But the end is nigh because eventually we wake up. "There's no such thing as time to kill Nor time to throw away So, once for the bright sky, twice for the pig sty Thrice for another day" Don't waste time in your dreams because the sky will brighten, But you can come back another day because the clock will be ticking down for you to return. The fact that the song ends with "And we'll rise by the sound of the birdsongs" Really indicates to me that this is a dream. In conclusion I believe that the meaning of this song is your escape to your unconscious, and one way you can escape from reality is slipping into a dream.

I think it’s a song based of of Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” Because Borogoves and heffalumps are from that poem

I might be weird but given the number of books referenced in this song it might be about losing yourself in a (few) good books. In these times we need an excape more and more.

When I first heard it I loved it but then I saw a video that says the song is about fleas. And then I listed closely to the lyrics and it kinda sound like it is hahaha.

This song gives me strong DnD, Lord of the Flies, and Peter Pan vibes. I personally see it as a "Live Life to its Fullest" type of thing, mixed in with a dash of adventure and a side of enjoying the natural things around you.

I found the song enchanting the first time that I heard it because it possesses a seemingly mythical quality. I can't help but think of The Odyssey from many of the lines. Odysseus' trials with the Lotos Eaters and Circe both speak of feasting and indulging, forgetting the toils of daily life. Circe turns his men to "pigs" in addition. After he experiences the "Sirens" where he needs to be tied to the mast in order to hear their "verse-less" and deadly song. In addition, the major theme in Tennyson's "Ulysses" is that the "journey never ends" because this hero will drink life to the lees. Just my humble opinion.

This song is the interpretation of each of the characters in lord of the flies. Each verse represents each of the main characters. Mainly Simon, since it references the pig on a stick a lot. Also, with the rhythm being that of a tribal matter, it references the power of jacks tribe

This to me sounds exactly like the kind of song that would be present in lord of the flies as the beat and tribal rhythms match the themes in the story. I also get some Peter Pan vibes

It reminds me of the lord of the flies.

It definitely has a ‘beat to the sound of your own drum’ vibe to me, an usher to live freely and fully, without the “humdrum” of fast-moving society. It it quite a lovely song, and I love how it’s mystic (and slightly witchy vibe) give it a fun and magical tone.
