My Philosphical Song: Learn To Fly by Foo Fighters

I found a song that finally relates to me. Something that fits with my lifestyle, and how I see myself as a graceful eagle.

Learn to Fly by Foo Fighters

I'll try to break it down lyric by lyric, and keep in mind that not all the lyrics go for me, obviously, but plenty of the lyrics do fit me. And these will also be in my own interpretation.

And I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright

I've loved the sky for as long as I remember. And to me, these lyrics tell me that this whole time, I'm looking for that vast sky of opportunities, all the adventures out there, everything that I wanna see and experience. Most of my life, I've been kept prisoner because of my parents. Because of them, I haven't had much life experience. There's plenty that I want to do and experience. I want to travel, live life, do it all, help me shine.

I'm looking for a complication
Looking cause I'm tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly

I'm tired of living the boring life-style I've been living my whole life. I want something to occupy me, even if it's something tough. Make it a life battle and an adventure. No more of the crap I've had to live with. I'm going into the skies/world where I belong, where I'll grow up and spread my wings on my own.

Fly along with me, I can't quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own

Even though I've mostly been solitary, I can't do it completely alone. I don't think most people can, but that's just what I've observed. I want some supporters with me, a few best friends that'll be there forever, and I want my lover to be there for me. But even with people around me, I'm the one who makes my own life, and who is the master of my own destiny.

This will be a song I shall live by for a very, very long time. This is what fits me to the core as both eagle and human.
