King Crimson's song "I talk to the wind" starts with:
Said the straight man to the late man
Where have you been?
I'm pretty sure that the songwriter is creating a contrast (e.g., an antithesis) between straight and late, but I don't know what that could be... my first hunch was that straight could mean punctual, but I did a quick research and that doesn't seem to be the case.
Is there any contrast here between straight and late?
