As an alternative community
We place a very heavy emphasis on our role as an alternative community within an existing local community because of the fact that suicide is a major cause of death and not just government departments but also all political parties have become indifferent to the high rate of premature mortality - i.e. people dying prematurely. This is before we go into the much more frequent issues of depression, anxiety disorders, mental illness, addictions, domestic violence, and people having to wear a mask (which the song was alluding to, in case you haven't figured it out)
It seems as a society we have become far too judgmental, bigoted, insular, ignorant and self-centred. Far too many people get judged for various reasons, their appearance, their body size, where they get their income from, their age, their sexual orientation and gender identity, their skin colour, their ethnicity, and so much more.
