"Fun" little question... [Sep. 22nd, 2003|07:06 am]

[Current Mood |sleepysleepy]

My mother and I listened to this song recently, and were wondering if the person in the song was murdered, or if he killed himself.
Now that I see the lyrics I really think he killed himself, but does anyone else have an opinion?


TWILIGHT ZONE
Golden Earring

Somewhere in a lonely hotel room
there's a guy starting to realize that eternal
fate has turned its back on him. It's 2 a.m.

It's two a.m.
The fear has gone
I'm sitting her waitin'
The gun's still warm
Maybe my connection is tired of taking chances
Yeah there's a storm on the loose
Sirens in my head
Wrapped up in silence
All circuits are dead
Cannot decode my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved
Under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
(repeat)
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral
Destination unknown
Double crossed messenger, all alone
Can't get no connection
Can't get through where are you

Well the night weighs heavy
On his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
When the hitman comes
He knows damn well
He has been cheated And he says
(repeat Chorus)

If you can find the video somewhere, watch that -- it might shed some light.

But I'd say it's a man that's delusional... so maybe he killed himself, maybe not.

Thanks for your opinion--yeah, that could very well be true. I'll try to find the video.

I would think he killed himself too.

Thanks--yeah, all the clues seem to point to something to that degree.

Um... you realize you just posted Golden Earring lyrics in your journal, right?

And yes, it sounds more suicidal than anything else.

Yes...I don't particularly like them, but I thought I'd get some opinions for Mama. And thanks for the input.

Sounds like suicide. But it's all up to the person listening to it.

Yeah, you're right--everyone's view about it seems to be a little different.

Seems he knew they were coming for him, so he robbed them of the pleasure. Just my take on it.

Is there a taboo about Golden Earring on LJ? I was just wondering... Always like to be kept abreast of the conspiracies.

Hmm...I don't believe so. thedarkcrystal just doesn't like that band at all. I don't particularly like it either, but this song really poses a good question.

Yeah, that's what I think as well. Especially since it says
"When the hitman comes
He knows damn well
He has been cheated", I would tend to agree with you.
