Great performance, great song, great album, great band — but one thing has always mystified me about this song.
Just watching the miles flying by
You are not my typewriter1
But you could be my demon
moving forward through the flaming doors
I.. I don’t even… Anyway, ignore that and focus on the chorus: You have to learn how to die / If you wanna wanna be alive.
I always hear this as You are not my tie fighter, which doesn’t help. ↩
