    Always loved "The Great Society" name..It's a putdown of LBJ's Great Society named plans that started in 1964.

    My guess on the meaning is that it's about the band trying to keep from being consumed as a fad as their popularity increased. The were at the head of a new musical wave, didn't want to be marketed and used up by music industry types that didn't understand what they were. It's mocking those running from music fad to music fad. But perhaps they are also saying it was inevitable their new music would get crushed, it was born to be burned. Or maybe they were saying it was just the fads that were born to be burned, implying they were immune.

    My guess at the lyrics: Walk in the street, late, it was late at night, I was trying to keep, I was trying to keep out of their sight, I used to run between you think was me you left me standing, and I was born to be burned. Wait, wait for the man, to come along, I would like to see how, I would like to see how he sells his song, fads he purchased trading like the ones displayed in the window oooow, I was born to be burned. You wait, you better wait for the man, to come along, I would like to see how, I would like to see how he sells his song, fads he purchased trading like the ones displayed in the other window, I was born to be burned, I was born to be burned.
