I am Disappeared

Post by Yoyo Ma » Mon Oct 05, 2015 9:20 pm

I love this song and I really don't have a clue what it's about. I'm sure my interpretation of other songs may not be accurate but they are my interpretations. What does this song say to you?

It's basically the dark side to "The Road", in my opinion. "The Road" is about keeping moving forward and pushing on to always experience new and unfamiliar things in different places, and that it's the best way to really experience a full life. "I Am Disappeared" is the downside: choosing to live life that way eventually creates a dependence on it, staying still becomes distressing and uncomfortable, and enjoying the current moment becomes impossible because everything in life is always focused on the road ahead, not the here and now.

Also frank needs to lay off the cheese before bedtime. Those dreams aren't normal.

That's how I feel it also.

Wanderlust seems to be in between those two.

I see it as more positive. A song about dreaming of escape, and knowing that, "on the worst days," escape is always possible.
