A Zooropa Album Interpretation

album represents a spiritual journey. The journey is centered around
the character of the wanderer. He is the star of this album.
It shows his journey as being a search for God that goes awry. The
other important figures in the album are God, the devil, and some other
outside omniscient neutral force who I'll call the narrator
to make things easier. I have put quotes from the songs in quotation marks,
and if I refer to stanzas they are the stanzas as they appear in the Zooropa
song introduces the idea of the spiritual journey. The first three
stanzas of this is the narrator speaking. In the fourth stanza "And
I have no compass..." switches to the wanderer being the speaker, and also
introduces what this album is about. The lines "And I have
no compass/ And I have no map" indicate that the wander is lost in
some sort of way. "And I have no reasons/ No reasons to get back"
that is self explanatory in and of itself, but will make more sense later
on. "And I have no religion" indicates being spiritually lost.
"And I don't know what's what", this line shows that the wanderer is very
confused, and he can't tell the difference between things, and as I will
explain later, the thing he can't tell the difference between is good and
evil. The sixth stanza is the narrator talking to the wanderer.
The lines "Zooropa...Don't worry baby. It'll be alright...Zooropa..you
got the right shoes...Zooropa..to get you through the night" are
the narrator's feeble attempt at comforting the lost soul (wanderer).
"Its cold outside but brightly lit" the coldness indicates the being
lost and away from God, while being brightly lit by "uncertainty." "Zooropa...
skip the subway," the wanderer is falling towards the subway. My
theory is that the different modes of transportation that are in this album
indicate the spiritual journey and how the wanderer is "driving" so to
speak from place to place. Now the subway being underground is associated
with the devil. So the wanderer is on his spiritual journey and is
for some reason being lured by the devil, thus the narrator is trying the
tell the wanderer to "skip the subway" and get away from the devil.
"Get your head out of the mud baby" also shows the narrator trying warn
the wanderer to get away his head out of the ground and away from the devil.
Now in the next stanza are the lines "No particular place names/
no particular song" in which the wanderer once again is speaking.
The wanderer is traveling on the journey and doesn't really know where
he is. "I've been hiding/ What am I hiding from" indicates
that perhaps this whole spiritual journey is actually the wanderer running
from something, but what? I'll get into that later. The last Stanza
which starts "Zooropa...don't worry baby.." is back to the narrator speaking.
Its basically the same as what I put for stanza 6. More attempts
of comforting the wanderer, and trying to tell the wanderer to get his
head out of the mud. "Zooropa...uncertainty can be a guiding light"
shows how uncertainty is what lit the way for this journey and partly started
him on this journey. Ok so this song switches speakers but there
is a certain logic in it. The stanza that starts out "Zooropa...."
have the narrator speaking while the other stanzas are the
wanderer speaking. Also the end of the song indicates that the wanderer
fell to the devil thus "take your head out of the mud baby."
song is a conversation between the wanderer and the devil.
The first stanza is the wanderer speaking. "Catching your bright
blue eyes/ In the freeze frame" the freeze frame is related to the
imagery of the "moving pictures" and "satellite television" later on in
the album. This images represent watching things happen instead of
actually doing those things. "I've seen them so many time/ I feel like
I must be your best friend" shows that the wanderer has seen, this person
he's meeting, before (in his dreams perhaps), and he feels like he knows
him. The wanderer thinks he has found God, but what the wanderer
does not know is that this person is really the devil. The
devil is disguised to lure the wanderer to him, which is shown in the lines
"You're looking fine, so fine, oh my/ Dressed up like a lovely day."
The guise that the devil wears is metaphorically shown as a "lovely day,"
which I will discuss more later. The second stanza "Babyface,
babyface..." switches to the devil speaking. The devil is calling
the wanderer a baby. This would make sense because the wanderer is
lost as if he is a baby and also because later there is the imagery of
the "daddy" which I'll will explain more in the song "Daddy's Gonna Pay
For Your Crashed Car." Now the rest of this stanza "Slow down child let
me untie your lace...." is the devil trying to tempt the wanderer to stay
with him. The lines "Cover girl with natural/ How could beauty be
so kind/ To an ordinary guy" show the devil trying to flatter the wanderer
in a way to stay. The third stanza is back to the wanderer speaking.
It's similar to the first stanza in that the wanderer has "come home late
at night" to the devil, because the devil lured him to hell. Again
there is the imagery of the devil in disguise as a "lovely day."
The fourth stanza, "Babyface, Babyface..," goes back to the devil
speaking. Again he is tempting the wanderer to stay with him, in
hell. The fifth stanza, "Babyface, babyface.." is the devil
again doing more tempting. "You're coming to me from outerspace"
shows how the wanderer came into hell from the "overground" which would
the "underground's" equivalent of "outerspace." So the stanzas that
start out "Babyface, babyface..." are the devil speaking, while the
other stanzas are the wanderer speaking.
song is from the wanderer's point of view. Here the Edge is singing
the part of the wanderer (obviously). In between Babyface & Numb
it seems the wanderer experienced something bad that has made him feel
numb. What I think happened is he realized that the "lovely day"
was the devil and not God as he had thought. It is, to me,
interesting that Edge should be singing the song because when some people
feel "numb" they don't feel like themselves. The first stanza it
seems that the wanderer is trying to comfort himself after this terrible
experience thus "Don't worry everything's just fine/ Just fine."
All the "don't ...don't....don't" is like the wanderer is trying to tell
himself to not do something. I think the thing he is trying
to convince himself to not do is what follows. He realized that what
he thought was God turned out to be the devil, but he is telling himself
that it can't be the devil it must be God. Thus we have lines throughout
the song such as "Don't think." "Don't project/ Don't connect/ Protect/
Don't expect/ Suggest" is like he telling himself to not connect to the
fact that what he found was the devil, and to not suggest to himself that
it could be the devil. Then there's the part Bono sings
"Too much is not enough/ Gimme some more/ Gimme some more/ Of that stuff
love/ Too much is not enough" is also the wanderer speaking. He had
too much of the devil, but it's not enough because it is so tempting he
wants more. "Some more of that stuff love" the stuff is what
the devil is using to tempt the wanderer to stay with him.
In this song it is the narrator
speaking for the most part. The lemon in this song represents the
devil. A lemon is yellow & bright but underneath is sour, similar
to how the devil here is disguised as a "lovely day" but is really evil.
First stanza is narrator speaking. "Lemon/ See through in the sunlight."
Here the sunlight represents God, therefore the lemon's guise is "see through"
when God is around, meaning when God is around to guide the wanderer it
is easier to tell what is evil. "She wore lemon/ Never in the daylight"
the lemon is the guise the devil wears to lure people to him but doesn't
dare do that when God "daylight" is around. "She's gonna make you
cry/ She's gonna make you whisper and moan" shows how the devil has
been cruel to the wanderer by tricking him. "But when you're
dry/ She draws water from a stone" despite being cruel when the wanderer
wants something ("is dry") the devil gives it to him ("Draws water
from a stone"). The devil is satisfying the wanderer's immediate
wants but in the end it will leave the wanderer empty (because you can't
really actually get water from a stone). The second stanza is the
wanderer speaking. "I feel like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slipping
under" towards the devil. Third stanza "She wore lemon.." seems
to go back to the narrator speaking. "She wore lemon/ to colour in
the cold gray night" The devil is the "she" and again it shows the
devil wearing the lemon guise. In wearing it he appears to be God/
the light/ what the wanderer has been looking for in the midst of the "night"
which represents a spiritual state in which the wanderer had "no
religion" & hadn't found God. "She had heaven/ And she held on
to it so tight." The devil appeared to have heaven & to
be God. But as in the song Dirty Day "you can hold on to something
so tight/ You've already lost it," which indicates that this is really
a devil in a lemon dress so to speak & not God. In stanza four
the narrator is still speaking. This goes back to the whole "moving
picture" "satellite television" theme. "A man makes a picture....."
I think the man is the wanderer. "Through light projected/ He can
see himself up close" indicates the wanderer is watching himself &
the journey he's been making. "He turns his money into light/ To
look for her." The money is to represent temptation in general.
He is going to turn his temptation into light (search for truth & such)
& look for the real God, just meaning he's going to forget about
all the devil's "apples" of temptation, so to speak, & go look for
God. Stanza five the wanderer is speaking again. "And I feel
like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore/ And I feel like I'm
swimming out to her." It seems to me that in many songs God
can be associated with water. The shore is dry & would therefore
be away from God. So he's swimming out to God. Next stanza
is the narrator speaking again. "Midnight is where the day begins
(x3)." It reminds me of the quote "You can't have a light without
a dark to stick it in." The wanderer can't find out what good is
until he's seen evil, and he has seen evil as the devil. The next
stanza "Lemon/ See through in the sunlight" is the same as the first two
lines of the song. Stanza 8. "A man builds a city/ With banks
and cathedrals" shows how temptation & religion/goodness are close
together in the world. "A man makes a car/ And builds a road
to run (them) on." This goes back to the transportation imagery theme
I pointed out earlier. This is the car of the wanderer's journey.
It's kinda like representing his soul, because his soul carries him on
his spiritual journey. "A man dreams of leaving/ But he always
stays behind" indicates how after the wanderer went to hell and dreamt
of "driving away" but for some reason stays with the devil.
"You're gonna meet her there/ She's your destination/ You gotta get to
her" indicates that the destination of his spiritual journey is with God.
"These are the days when we look for something other" indicates the
wanderer is looking for God. Next stanza "Midnight is where the day
begins (x3)" has the same meaning as it did earlier in the song.
The next stanza "A man makes a picture.................To look for her"
has the same meaning as indicated earlier.
Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
To me this song is God speaking
to the wanderer. "You stop in for a pack of cigarettes/ You don't
smoke, you don't even want to" is a metaphor for the wanderer stopping
into hell (smoke...fire), even though he doesn't want to be with the devil.
"I see you check your change" I saw this as somewhat being a reference
to Judas, & how he got money to betray Christ. So he's checking
his change to see how long its gonna last him, how long the short term
satisfaction is really going to make him happy. "Dressed up like
a car crash/ The wheels are turning but you're upside down" is going
back to all the transportation imagery. If the car represents the
wanderer's soul which takes him on his spiritual journey, then this is
what I say about that line. If the car is crashed, it's been wrecked
or ruined in some way because he fell to the devil. The wheels are
turning so the wanderer's drying to "drive" out of hell, but since the
car is upside down, it can't leave. Being upside represents whatever
it is that is keeping the wanderer from leaving. "You say when he
hits you, you don't mind/ Because when he hurts you, you feel alive/ Is
that what it is?" "He" the devil is abusing the wanderer in the long
run, but the wanderer is rationalizing it because for some reason he needs
it, it's giving him some temporary satisfaction. "You stumble out
of a hole in the ground" shows the wanderer getting out of the "underground"
thus out of hell. "A vampire or a victim" the wanderer was
either a victim or of the devil's trickery or he is to blame too thus a
"vampire" because he was sucking the devils blood so to speak, the devil
was giving him something he thought he needed or wanted. "And
if you look, you look through me/ And if you talk it's not to me/ And when
I touch you you don't feel a thing" the wanderer can't see God anymore
despite God trying to save him. "If I could stay...then the night
would give you up/ Stay, and the day would keep its trust/ Stay, and the
night would be enough" God is saying that he if he could stay with
the wanderer he could save him from the devil. I also think its implying
more so that if the wanderer would let God stay in his heart then
he could save him from the devil. "Faraway so close" Wanderer
is close to God but far spiritual. "Up with the static and
the radio/ With satellite television/ You can go anywhere" goes to
the whole "moving picture" "satellite television" theme. It indicates
that the wanderer can look at any place through this television
& think about going there without actually going. So he can think
of leaving hell without actually doing it. "And if you listen I can't
call......" this stanza gives the same idea as the stanza of "And
if you look...." except for now its giving the image that the wanderer
can't hear God. "If I could stay...then the night would give you
up/ Stay and the day would keep its trust" means the same thing here as
it did earlier. "Stay with the demons you drowned" because
the wanderer "drowned" the demon of the devil. "Stay with the spirit
I found" God found the spirit in the wanderer. "Three o'clock
in the morning/ It's quiet and there's no one around/ Just the bang and
the clatter/ As an angel runs to ground/ Just the bang and the clatter/
As an angel hits the ground" I think the Angel hitting the ground
image signifies that an angel or God himself has come to rescue the wanderer.
Daddy's Gonna Pay For
Your Crashed Car
This song has the point of
view of the narrator. "Precious stone" is the wanderer. "You're
out on your own" means the wanderer is out on his own so obviously away
from the devil. "Daddy" in this song is the devil. "Daddy won't
let you weep/ Daddy won't let you ache" shows how the devil supposively
takes care of the wanderer & how he is trying to lure the wanderer
to hell with empty promises. "Daddy gives you as much as you can
take" the wanderer has had as much as he can of the devil. "Daddy's
gonna pay for you're crashed car" Going back to the transportation imagery
this shows a crashed car, so if the car is the wanderer's soul then a crashed
car means that the wanderer's soul/spirit has been damaged by the devil.
So saying "daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car" would show how
the devil is trying to tempt the wanderer back by saying he'll make everything
better for the wanderer. It also works as the devil's gonna have
to "pay" for what he did to the wanderer. So in this whole song the
"crashed car" represents the wanderer's spiritual journey having gone horribly
awry. "A little uptight, you're a baby's fist" goes back to
the idea that the wanderer is represented by a baby (like in Babyface).
"Butterfly kisses up and down your wrist" show how the devil is "kissing"
the wanderer, in other words trying to tempt him back to hell. "When
you see him coming, you're licking your lip/ Nails bitten down to
the quick" the wanderer is tempted by the devil thus "licking (his)
lip" but is also afraid of the devil thus "nails bitten...." Then
it goes back to the "Daddy's gonna pay......" "You've
got a head full of traffic" Traffic would be cars moving in his head.
So if the car driving represents the different spiritual journeys
that are being made then "a head full of traffic shows how the wanderer
is thinking about all the different spiritual paths he could take, he could
stay with the devil or go to God. "You cry for mama, and daddy's
right along" he is crying for God ("mama") but he can't get away
from the devil ("daddy") either physically or just his memory.
"He gives you the keys to a flamin car" So the devil gave him the
keys meaning he helped lead the wanderer to getting a "flamin car."
The image of the car being "flamin" shows it on fire thus it has gone through
hell. So evil led the wanderer to hell. "Daddy's with you wherever
you are" the wanderer can't get away from the devil and the memory
of him, and he keeps thinking whether or not he should go back to the devil.
The reasoning to go back to the devil is shown in "Daddy's a comfort/ Daddy's
your best friend." The devil took care of the wanderer's immediate
wants & temptations, and appeared to be the wanderer's friend.
"Daddy'll hold your hand right up to the end" The devil will hold
the wanderer up to the "end" to where the wanderer wouldn't be able to
handle any more. So if "daddy" holds his hand up to the end,
thats all he holds the wanderer's hand up to. So when the wanderer
is at the point to where he can't take anymore, the devil leaves him to
basically fall into oblivion. "Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday's alright" shows the passing of time and
leads into "Some Days Are Better than Others."
Some Days Are Better Than
This song is from the narrator's
point of view. This song shows how literally some days are better
then others. Also the days represent God and the devil. This
was shown already in Babyface with the whole "dressed up like a lovely
day" thing I discussed. The devil would be the bad day, "dirty
day," and the thing that was "dressed up like a lovely day."
Since the devil had only put on the guise of the "lovely day" the ACTUAL
"lovely day" would be God. Also God would be a good day.
Some days, literal days, are better for the religious/ spiritual journey
that the wanderer makes. "Some days...it all adds up/ And what you got
is enough" This refers to the wanderer. The wanderer stayed with
the devil because as in Numb "Gimme some more/of that stuff love/ Too much
is not enough." The wanderer wanted more & more, but now he is
to a point where "what (he's) got is enough" And he's ready to leave the
devil behind. "Some days you hear a voice/ Taking you to
another place" In the song Stay it showed how the wanderer could
not hear God calling him in the lines "And if you listen, I can't call."
So here the wanderer can finally hear the voice of God, and its "taking
him to another place" away from hell and towards being with God.
"Some days are honest some days are not" the honest day is God, the day
that isn't honest is the devil. "Some days you wake up in the army/ And
some days its the enemy" The army would be God's army and waking
up in the army means being on the side of God. "And some days its
the enemy" would mean waking up with the enemy" which is the devil.
"Some days you fell like a bit of a baby" this shows the idea that
the wanderer can be represented by the baby. This makes sense since
God religiously is referred to as the father. "Lookin for Jesus
and his mother" shows how the wanderer is on the journey to search for
The First Time
This is the wanderer speaking
in this song. The lover, brother, and father represent the
trinity. The lover is the holy spirit. "she got soul, soul,
soul, sweet soul" shows how the "lover" has soul thus must be the
spirit. "She teach me how to sing" is showing how the spirit teaches him
how to pray & be close to God. "Shows me colours when there's
non to see/ Gives me a hope for when I can't believe" shows how the
holy spirit has restored the wanderer's own spirit and given hope and kept
him going. With the image of the trinity in this song it shows how
the wanderer is now away from the devil and is with God. "For the
first time I feel love" he feels love because he is with God. "I
have a brother" the brother is Jesus. Jesus is God's son & people
are God's children so that would make Jesus the wanderer's brother.
"I spend my whole time running/ He spends his running after me" shows
how the wanderer has been "running" on his journey and Jesus has
been chasing after him trying to get him to come be with God.
When he feels himself "goin down" towards the devil he calls for Jesus
who "comes around." "My father" is God. "He gave me the keys
to his kingdom (coming)" God gave him the "keys" to get to heaven
& be with him (while the devil gave him the "keys to a flamin car".)
"He said 'I have many mansions/ And there are many rooms to see'/
But I left by the back door/ And I threw away the key..." God told him
there are many mansions & rooms to see so the wanderer went on his
journey in search of these. But he left the kingdom "left by the
back door" and "threw away the key" when he was lured by the devil.
"For the first time I feel love" now he's back with God and feels true
love. So basically this song is the wanderer reminiscing over the
events of straying from God & coming back to God.
This song is the wanderer
speaking. For the most part he is speaking to God. "I don't
know you...and you don't know the half of it" suggests that God would
not know the wanderer because he went off with the devil, and God "doesn't
know the half" of what happened to the wanderer. "I had a starring
role.... I was the bad guy who walked out" the wanderer is acknowledging
the fact that he is the one who "left by the back door" and "threw away
the key." "They say be careful where you aim/ Because where you aim
you just might hit" the wanderer was "aiming" to fill his temptation,
and where he aimed he hit, but got his temptation/wants filled by the devil.
"You can hold on to something so tight/ You've already lost it" In
Lemon it says "She had heaven and she held on to it so tight" but as shown
here "You can hold on to something so tight/ You've already lost
it." So the wanderer thought he had found "heaven" but really
hadn't, and in the process lost the real heaven. Also it show how
the devil appeared to have heaven but didn't. "Dragging me
down" he was dragged down
to hell. "Thats not the way it used to be" he used to be with God.
"You can't even remember what I'm trying to forget" He thinks God
doesn't know about what really went on with this whole being dragged to
the devil thing. He thinks God doesn't realize that it was not the
wanderer's fault (but in reality the wanderer is partly to blame).
"What I'm trying to forget" the wanderer is trying to forget the memory
of the devil which is haunting him. "It was a dirty day" the wanderer
has realized that the devil was a "dirty day" and also that the actual
days he was with the devil were bad ("dirty") days. "You want explanations"
God wants to know why the wanderer drifted from him. "I don't even
understand" the wanderer can't fully explain. "If you need someone
to blame.../ Throw a rock in the air/ You're bound to hit someone guilty"
the wanderer is trying to point guilt at someone, also if he threw a rock
it could hit the wanderer showing the wanderer's guilt. Either way
it gives me the image of a stoning, so perhaps he gets stoned for going
to evil, but I'm not sure on the whole stoning idea. "From father
to son/ In one life has begun" God gave him life. "A work thats
never done/ Father to son" If you consider Jesus as the son here
it gives the image of God & Jesus's work of saving souls as never being
done. "(And love...it won't last kissing time)" the love
the wanderer got from the devil wasn't going to last from simply
staying in hell. "Get it right/ There's no blood thicker than
ink" the wanderer is saying that he thought there was no love stronger
than his temptations, ink being material things & blood being
love. He is kinda
trying to rationalize &
make excuses for his drifting from God, but his excuses are pathetic.
"Hear what I say/ Nothing's as simple as you think" he is telling
God the whole thing is not as simple as it seems. "Wake up/ Some
things you can't get around" he couldn't get around (or away) from
the devil. "I'm in you/ More so when they put me in the ground" he's
now apart of God & when he is "put in the ground" (I'm thinking it
means when he dies) it will be more permanent. "It was a dirty day/
A dirty day" the devil was a "dirty day" and his time with the devil was
a bad ("dirty".) "Hank says THE DAYS RUN AWAY LIKE HORSES OVER
THE HILLS" shows those days, both the literal & the devil, are
First off this song
"The Wanderer" is starring Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash is the
voice of the wanderer. Johnny Cash is representing an older version
of the wanderer to show how time has progressed through this whole journey.
The wanderer is now older, wiser. "I went out walking through streets
paved with gold" The streets show the path of his journey that his
soul was driving on. Gold shows the contrasting images of both
money and light, showing the closeness of goodness and evil/ temptations
on his journey, and how they both appeared similar. "City without
a soul" refers to hell. "I went out walking under an atomic sky"
he went out walking on his journey. "Where the ground won't turn/
And the rain it burns" kinda describing his journey and such.
"Rain burns" rain is water which gives life and the wanderer thought he
found life with the devil but it burned. "Like the tears when
I said goodbye" this acknowledges that he left God/goodness.
"Yeah I went with nothing/ Nothing but the thought of you/ I went wandering"
he went wandering with the thought of God. "I went drifting through
the capitals of tin/ Where men can't walk/ Or freely talk/ And sons turn
their fathers in" Sons of God (which are people) turning their father
(God) in shows betrayal, like that of the wanderer drifting towards
the devil. "I stopped outside a church house/ Where the citizens
like to sit/ They say they want the kingdom/ But they don't want God in
it" So on the outside it has the appearance of something holy
and good but does not actually have God in it. That describes the
devil when he was dressed like the "lovely day" but was actually
the "dirty day." "I went out riding/ Down that ol' eight lane" again
shows the wanderer riding the street of his journey. "I passed by
a thousand signs/ Looking for my own name" he was trying to find
himself while on this spiritual journey. "I went with nothing/
But the thought you'd be there too/ Looking for you" He was looking for
himself spiritually and he hoped when he did God would be there too.
"I went out there/ In search of experience/ To taste and to touch/ And
to feel as much/ As a man can/ Before he repents" looking back the
wanderer sees his journey was started in part by following and trying
to fill his temptations. Now he has to repent and ask God for forgiveness.
"I went out searching, looking for one good man/ A spirit who would not
bend or break/ Who would sit at his father's right hand/ I went out
with a bible and a gun/ The word of God lay heavy on my heart/ I was sure
I was the one" So the wanderer went out looking for someone who was
with God and he thought that he was the one who's heart was with God.
"I went out with a bible and a gun"
shows two quite drastically
different images. Bible shows he was looking for God. And the
gun shows it was kinda like he was playing Russian Roulette with his heart/soul.
He was trying to find God and was nearly "killed" spiritually by
the devil. "Now Jesus, don't you wait up/ Jesus, I'll be home soon/
Yeah I went out for the papers/ Told her I'd be back by noon"
he's speaking to God saying he's coming back to be with God spiritually.
"Yeah I went with nothing/ But the thought you'd be there too/ Looking
for you.../ Yeah I left with nothing/ Nothing but the thought of.../ I
went wandering" This has the same meaning as I explained before.
Now the music to this song
has almost a country
feel to me. It gives me that cowboy riding off into the sunset image.
Its like the wanderer is riding off into the sunset, giving a nice happy
ending image. The sun is an archetype for life and also here represents
God. This was already shown in Lemon as God being the "sunlight."
So riding off into the sunset shows going off to be with God. Also
the cowboy is riding a horse into the sunset, which shows the image of
how the wanderer was riding along on his spiritual journey. Images
of horses are shown elsewhere also: in Dirty Day "The days run away
like horses over the hills." So to me this whole riding on
a horse imagery doesn't seem so
I think the whole concept of the devil/ God/ wanderer/
and spiritual journey imagery can all be symbolic.
The devil of course represents the evils and temptations
in the world. God represents good, what is
right and truthful. The wanderer and his journey
shows the confusion in the world and how people
can drift between good and bad. People try
to do what is good and sometimes in that end up doing
what is not. The way in which the wanderer was fooled
by the devil into thinking that the devil was God shows
there's a thin line between good and evil, and that they
can often be confused for one another. A real life
example is a religious war. You think you are
doing good spreading the word of God's Gospel
but you end up killing people. That kinda reminds
me of Northern Ireland. So basically this is showing
the thin line between good and evil and how people are
confused between what is what.
