The market's down like 60 stories
And some don’t end the way they should
Frank’s use of the words “market” and “stories” have at least two interpretations.
- “Stories” referring to the height of the building he is falling from.
- “Stories” as in the life stories of Frank, himself, as well as other kids and parents from the upper-middle class whose lives have spun off their desired course.
It also tells us how high he is, compared to the markets (AKA the working class) below. At the end of it all, he ends up dead on the ground next to them, showing that his riches meant literally nothing in his death.
