Uniform Lyrics

Father, it's time to leave
Tears on my face and on your sleeve
And on your shoulder,
I'm going down in uniform
I'm going down,
I'm going down in uniform

Mother, it's time to go
The days will be long and go too slow
But I'll think...

    I reckon it is dedicated to veterans who leave their homes to join the military. The reason I say this is the uniform reference and the images in the video of military uniforms.

    No it's the opposite - it's about someone getting out of the rat race. Listen to the lyrics.

    I think this song is about leaving home and joining the rat race. I think it's from their time in the states and seeing the long tail backs and the monotonous of every day life going to work in uniform. Uniform could symbolise the clothing and the fact that we are all doing the same thing. I think the going down is to do with everyone doing the same and not going anywhere really.
