Lizstomania Lyrics

So sentimental
Not sentimental, no!
Romantic, not discussing it
Darling I'm down and lonely
When we're the fortunate only
I've been looking for something else
Duel it, duel it, duel it, juggle it, duel it, duel it

Go slowly, discouraged,

    The word "Lisztomania" is a term used to describe the intense fan frenzy directed toward Franz Liszt during his piano performances. Lisztomania began to be seen as a real medical condition that was contagious, and critics tried to take measures to immunize the public against the condition. I think that this song represents this condition, but I don't think the complete song is about Franz Liszt. "Think less but see it grow" could be talking about how Liszt would get this huge, growing frenzy without doing that much. I think this song is saying how that is a good approach to certain things. "From a mess to the masses" could also be representing someone's quest to find a meaning in this world, through music. Basically in my interpretation, this song is about how anything could happen, and how you need to know how to handle it.
