how wrong we were to think that immortality meant never dying

most people that i've talked about this line with don't understand it. "immortality does mean never dying" personally, i think losing someone you really care about helps you understand the lyric. my mom died 11 years ago and i still think of her every day. whenever i think about her, this lyric runs through my head... i was curious what others thought of the lyric (people who don't dismiss it as some emo dude trying to be existential)
Current Mood: hopeful
Current Music: buck o nine - round kid

I take this lyric from a more... literal and less personal meaning, I guess. Immortal, as previously stated in the original post, means never dying. However, if, in that life, you did something. You made an impact, big or small. You changed the world in a much more obvious way, or via The Butterfly Effect. You meant something to others, or you were a great person. And for doing what you did, though you're physically dead, you're never gone. Your influence and memories of you remain, and in that, you are immortal.

i couldn't agree more... i really wanted to try and say what you did, but i couldn't get it out coherently...

To be honest, I'm quite surprised that that came out coherent. XD Usually my writing comes out as a messy blah.
I guess I've just thought about that line a lot.
