Corner of the Sky 4 — this is another 4w3 song, and it could very easily be a 3w4 song (Pippin, who sings it, is a 3w4, not a 4w3), but I’ve put it here in 4 land because the driving sentiment is “Why do I feel I don’t fit in anywhere I go?” The song is about belonging, and the 4 struggles with feeling that they belong anywhere. There is always some way that the environment doesn’t quite attune to them, something is missing, or I’m too messed up to be able to fit neatly, as my whole complex true self, into whatever environment I happen to find myself in. There is certainly a lot of 3 stuff in this song. The final verse, “So many men seem destined to settle for something small, but I won’t rest until I know I’ll have it all” is certainly very 3-ish and frames the vague goal that drives Pippin’s restless searching. But yes, ultimately this point, “Got to find my corner of the sky” is all about where will I be able to be “me,” and sets up a journey of never-ending self-discovery and constant disappointment, simultaneously searching for a satisfying self-definition and an environment that precisely and all-encompassingly attuned to who I’ve defined myself to be, which is rather 4-ish. Rivers belong where they can ramble. Eagles belong where they can fly… they’ve got it figured out, they know where they’re supposed to be. But what about me?
