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)

well I think it could either be that there are more than one ways to be immortal, like someone already said. You leave a legacy of some kind, or change someones life and you're remembered forever... even though you did die.

or we all know about their love for zombie flicks and the like. So maybe it's something like, yeah, you're immortal, but you can still feel dead inside. Like Bella in New Moon. *spoiler for New Moon juuust in case you haven't read the books yet. and by the way. HURRY UP THEY ARE AMAZING!* *ahem* anyways, She was so torn up inside after losing Edward that she was virtually dead. She went to school, and work, she cooked, she did her homework but that was it. But losing him did almost kill her in.

oh yeah another incoherent post. i'm amazing at explaining myself. hahaha.

sorry i'm tired. and i just don't feel like trying to fix that blob up there ^^

haha, wouldn't it be funny if we were all assigning it a deep meaning and they really just wrote it 'cause they like zombies...
