One of my favorite bands, Knuckle Puck, released a new album yesterday. So, there is a track, named "Conduit" (full lyrics here)
And the chorus there sounds like that:
If all you are is under the surface
Then why is it so hard to be a conduit?
In Oxford Dictionaries the meaning of conduit is
1 A channel for conveying water or other fluid. ‘nearby springs supplied the conduit which ran into the brewery’
1.1 A person or organization that acts as a channel for the transmission of something. ‘as an actor you have to be a conduit for other people's words’ More example sentences
2 A tube or trough for protecting electric wiring. ‘the gas pipe should not be close to any electrical conduit’ mass noun ‘the cable must be protected by conduit’
So, regarding this, it suppose to be mean some
person that acts as a channel for the transmission of something.
But I don't really get it, what exactly it could mean here?
P.S. My apologies if it's really stupid question, just let me know, guys.
