I don’t know, if any of you read this article / interview here:
Chester speaks about “Castle of Glass” from two different point of views. And as I read this, I felt like: Ooops, I did it all wrong.
When I heard this song, I thought about relationships between people in detail, not about society generally. Maybe so called friends or maybe even lovers. Like beeing part of something beautiful or something that could be beautiful, if you weren’t that broken inside, that tears you apart. On the one hand you want to show yourself everyone that’s close to you and shout at them: Look at me, I’m so lost, please help me out! But on the other hand you’re too coward and hide it inside … hardly anything there for you to see.
But that was my idea after thinking a little bit about it. My first thought was of these perfect couples, when you think, these two people are made for each other. But the reality for those two is different, maybe they’re just playing their roles for all the others while their relationship is close to break. Maybe one of them feels like beeing the one to blame, beeing the crack that will make collapse the whole castle of glass some day like a window you throw a stone at. So a really different point of view to what Chester said. Not being part of a beatiful thing even when you’re a little bit “cracked”, but being the crack that lets this beauty break down. Maybe I should get me a little bit more optimistic perspective [biggrin]
So what do you think about LP’s lyrics. Maybe lyrics in general. Is there always so much space for interpretation? Did I really wrong with my thoughts or is this just natural, because of all the different experiences people have?
