In reply to:
This Is Not America was written for soundtrack of the film Falcon And The Snowman. I doubt there is much of an interetation to the song apart from that.
Having read the book, seen the movie and read the lyric, I think you're wrong. It's a unpleasant tale of cocaine dealing and espionage and quite a sad story. I think David has at least seen the movie, if not read the book, and has interpreted the sad tale of the two protagonists quite sweetly in his melancholic lyric.
This is er..a new song, itís not recorded yet, sícalled Iím Telling Lies. But Iím not. Yes I am.
