When Phil was young, he was a child actor. He witnessed sexual assault on other child actors and maybe he was abused as well.

When he got older he was in the entertainment industry in a different capacity, in music, and ran into one of those abusers who didn’t recognize him. But now he’s powerful person. What’s coming in the air is revenge.

WTF???

WHY did it post 3 times? I only submitted it once. I tried submitting my original comment but it had the L / Y word and would not accept.

wtf

Each time I clicked it it was blocked. I changed the word to "song" then only sub'd once. It should have my original wording for the other 2 tries, yet it does not!

hmm

Re: Need help with the meaning of a song: IN THE AIR TONIGHT
The story l heard as a youngster was Phill was overlooking the ocean on a high cliff where he was to meet some friends on the beach below. He noticed one friend go into the ocean and started drowning and the other person who was there who he didn’t know watched his friend drown and didn’t try to save him. Basically watched him drown. Phill met this person later in life and confronted him and then that person committed suicide. Now l have no idea if that was true but it was the story going around at that time.

Phil collins have said that all these stories are urban legends. He said that when he wrote it, he was in the middle of a (bad i assume) divorse and he was feeling very angry.

“I wrote it after my wife left me,” Collins told Rolling Stone in 2016. “Genesis had done a tour that was far too long. She said to me, ‘We won’t be together if you do the next tour.’ I said, ‘I’m a musician. I have to go away and play. Just hold your breath when I’m over there.’ Then Genesis toured Japan. When I got back, she said she was leaving and taking the kids.”

It's now a song used by Mystics & truthers
who knows about the secret war

In memory of those
who was hunted
after being at the cross
and
for their teachings
since thousands of years...

one is Mary Magdalene
and Her Templar Knights...

and who was / has been Witness(es)

and who is a witness to these times
to the ultimate treasons and betrayals...

Re: Need help with the meaning of a song: IN THE AIR TONIGHT
Music is subjective. It only means what it means for you.

A lot of the smart musicians never tell people the meaning of their popular songs. The ones that do, usually disappoint the fans, because the fans usually put far more profound meaning into the songs than the artist originally had.
“The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them.”

Padmam,

The song is about transformation after having your psychy scratched to bits. There is no regret for the transition. To become the new person is to be free of human expectation and to be free of storybook love. The transition allows the singer to experience Gods love.

Amen I say Amen.

Re: Need help with the meaning of a song: IN THE AIR TONIGHT
All songs sounds rythms have many different meanings ..Just like the song Hotel California ..sure it has the literal meaning of the words one by one but in my days that song had my own meaning...AND some songs i never acutually heard the words perfeclty and filled in my own words withut knowing..

Weird Al he made a comedy act out of lyrcs..

It been 50 years since smoke on the water fire in the sky and it was written as the bad was sitting by a lake and a forest fire was burning ...ive never ever heard that was "the meaning"


NOt the new fake Autotune hiphop rap hereo garbage is literal the hood they glorify and stay far away from but act like gangsters well that hood actually exists and they make billlions as youth gangs hold street hostage for decades

It's about the girl,,, Are not 90% of all songs aways about the girl?
I always thought is was about knowing his girl was cheating on him but he had not confronted her about it...
Its in the air tonight that he was going tell her he know what she did as he had seen it with his own eyes...

INFJ; We are the protectors; One Percent of the population.

We put a lot of energy into identifying the best system for getting things done, and constantly define and re-define the priorities.

We know things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. We are usually right, and we usually know it.
