When fame is in a social app
That social crack got us locked up in a choke hold
No ones knows so no one taps
Except that trumpet in the back
Everyone has a little Kane and Cain in them and the way our society communicates now- it only reinforces those feelings.
It intensifies the envy, the desire to want to be famous, powerful, even if just in a tiny social circle of personal friends…it creates feins, like crack does.
We are chocked by the desire, the type of choke hold seen in MMA, where if you don’t “tap out” you will go unconscious.
However “Taps” is not only what someone does to get out of a choke hold, it’s also a musical piece (for trumpet or/bugle) sounded at dusk, and at funerals, particularly by the U.S. military.
It’s also known as “Day is Done”
Again, playing on the theme of the “death of self, principles, personal truth”
You see in the next line, the symbolism of “Taps” playing behind the character’s sex acts to get ahead.
