While subversion draws attention to a deficiency, observance reflects the acknowledgement of challenges and the understanding of hurdles overcome. “Voices” can be a cry for help or a silent nod of acknowledgement. “Us and Them” capitalizes the warm and fuzzy teatime talks, the purpose of which is to keep it pleasant, much like the lyrics of the song:
“Us, and them
And after all we’re only ordinary men.
Me and you
God only knows it’s not
what we would choose to do”
