Life of Pi Analysis

the first song I have analyzed is Called "God Forbid" By P.O.D. The lyrics are below. -----------------------------------------------------------
We have cause to be uneasy
The evil-utionary process has begun in a world that hates you These secrets revealed belong to us
And when worst comes to worst
My peoples come first

Too many things going wrong around us
Too much to be done and so little time
We're so used to bowing down that we forget how to stand up
And we settle for last in line
But not this time!

God forbid
That I should lose, lose my mind
God forbid
Insanity is just a thought away
God forbid that I should lose my mind
God forbid
Balancing the good that's left in me
---------------------------------------------------------------- I, Captain Justice, think that the relevance of this song to "Life of Pi" is pretty self explanatory. On the lifeboat, Piscine had every chance in the world to go insane. Piscine's insanity was literally "Just a thought away". "Too many things going wrong around us" With all the terrible things happening around Pi, whether it's in the first story with the animals, or the second story with the people, I, Captain Justice, find it surprising that he didn't actually go insane (except in the second story. That was pretty messed up). Or, at least, didn't go as insane as we thought he might.

The second song that I, Captain Justice, have chosen is called "Say Hello" and it is also by P.O.D. the lyrics go as follows -------------------------------------------------------------- Walked in the place, and everybody looked down at we

Disgust on their face, but we don't mind cause we're too busy smiling Never get in my face, that's not the way to understanding
And ignorance is blind, so this time, this time we gonna let it ride

I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.

Can't plead my case, the juries out won't give me a chance,
Cause I don't think the same.
Shut down the court, kidnap the judge.
Now they sit in his place,
And who are you to make your birth right deciding my fate?
I know your kind, I have, and I will carry on.

I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!

I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!
----------------------------------------------------------------- This song is not completely related to Life of Pi. But there are definitely some lyrics that I, Captain Justice, have found that are for sure related. "And ignorance is blind, so this time, this time we gonna let it ride." These lyrics relate to Pi's choice for Richard Parker. Pi had many choices for Richard Parker. All but one had to do with Killing Richard Parker. Piscine chose to wait it out. He would Ignore Richard Parker until Rchard parker just died. He soon realised that his "Ignorance [was] blind" so that time, he decided he was "Gonna let [Richard Parker] ride. At the end of the story, we realize that Piscine himself could have been Richard Parker. This goes along perfectly with the main lyrics of the song "I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel. And let me introduce to you myself, Say hello to the bad guy!" The ending is considered disappointing for some people once we learn that Piscine could have actually been Richard Parker. I, Captain Justice, am not one of the people who was disappointed with the ending. I, Captain...
