30 Days of Noir: Day 15 ~Where The Road Is Dark
Where the road is dark, and the seed is sowed.
Where the gun is cocked and the bullet’s cold.
Where the miles are marked in the blood and gold….
I’ll meet you further on up the road.
~ Bruce Springsteen, Further On Up The Road
I first examined the Springsteen and Noir theme about four years ago, and it’s progressed. His lyrics often resonate in this realm for me.
The more I listen, the more I hear it.
Perhaps it’s his depression that contributes to this.
Perhaps he realizes that this life – even in the best of times – is more valleys than peaks.
Is this the case? Or do we just remember the dark times?
Dunno. This was just my visual interpretation of this song.
And put on your smilin’ skull ring.
