Fixing, to find you In this treacherous terrain There's llandslides, landmines It's a jungle that we made You're not the king of it no more

Does it denote " our mistakes and shortfalls" ?

  • In this particular example, it is used as a metaphor, yes, but in another context it could just as well be meant literally. – Mr Lister Sep 4 '17 at 7:30
  • By the way, "landmines" sounds like something a lot worse than just mistakes or shortfalls. – Mr Lister Sep 4 '17 at 7:31
  • then like what please? I'm translating, so I need to have some synonyms so close to what it implies. – Shahrooz Sep 4 '17 at 7:34
  • what about this part; [ No matter how long it'll hurt like this When I go into the apocalypse I'm gonna go crazy Crazy To lose you]. ( here go into the apocalypse), does it mean sth that is revealed to the speaker or no, it means literally go into the end time? then end time of what? the world? or their search or relationship? – Shahrooz Sep 4 '17 at 7:38
  • I'm not sure. I didn't know the song, so I had to google it - that's why I didn't want to post an answer; not familiar enough with the subject. Anyway, the song is called "Apocalypse" and it's about a relationship blowing up. Lines like "I break out my artillery" sound like more than just people recognising their own faults. They're actively fighting! – Mr Lister Sep 4 '17 at 7:41

It's metaphoric and implies "obstacles" and "difficulties".

  • Thanks Sina, and this is what I already landed on, but yours secured the answer. Good Job. – Shahrooz Sep 10 '17 at 5:58
  • No worries... Cheers mate! – Sina Sep 10 '17 at 22:32
