    one of the great insightful songs by neil young about the loner that we all can relate to at times. I feel neil gets into the mindset of the loner that is younger then himself that knows how to use the subways and trains as his playground. he is a shapeshifter in the way he talks,looks and walks, a streetsmart city slicker that knows how to profile you in reading your body language in his frownish look, wich can give you the willies thinking that he is headed in the wrong direction. he can appear to be his own prisioner that holds the key, were nobody can free him but himself. this is a loner more of a oldboy than a man that rides in the first car to keep his I in the future, or ride in the last subway car to leave his past behind. he is always watching your moves in the subway car to sense if there is a danger in you, but he is probably just as afraid as you may be of him, so when the doors open wide don't cross his path, just step aside 'cause he just wants to be alone. who knows what affect it had on him when the woman took away something that he needed , so he became more unreal with himself 'cause his real self died when she left but he did not show it out of fear. to me I believe the graffiti artists of the late 60's and mid 70's that roamed the subways and trains of n.y.c looking to tag their names for a little fame and identity, like ''jesus saves'', stay high 149, phase 2, piper 1, purple haze, taki 183, tracy 168, riff raff, brother love 333 and many more that can relate to ''the loner''.
