Quit The Circus
From This Might Be A Wiki
|song name||Quit the Circus|
|artist||They Might Be Giants|
|sung by||John Flansburgh|
- John Flansburgh described the song's themes in a 2021 interview:
It's not really an autobiographical song, but I think anybody who's been sort of trapped in a family could understand this song. I think one of the things about writing songs is that you tend to really amplify a lot of the lyrical... You know, if you're drawing from something personal, you're not just gonna mumble your way through it, you're gonna heighten it. It's really about a very extreme kind of claustrophobia. [...] That one's pretty dire.
- Flansburgh later revealed that the song was based on a friend's experiences.
