Song Analysis and Life of Pi

About his cannibalism
[They all know, They all know!]
Sorry, did I wake your dreams?
Some questions run to me
We only, only wake up when we sleep
Met by the lunar light, trouble's all we find
Lost our way tonight
Asking God, if he did something wrong.

Is it something we said?
Is it something we said to them?
Pi is trapped at sea, no way home, all alone, with no family. “The endings are the same as every other, we’re only here to die”. Like the rest of his family, he thinks he will die as well at first before he gains all of his hope. Is it something we said?!

[Save me]
I’m trapped in a vile world
[Save me]
Guiding light refers to God, and hope. Seeing a light at the end of a tunnel, it also represents the end of the bad, and start of the good. Where the endings are the same as every other
We're only here to die
[Save me]
I'm losing my only dream
[Save me]
I can use some guiding light, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know

[They all know, They all know!]

Ever since the day you let my face being said unknown
How many years to walk this path alone
So much to see tonight, so why'd you close your eyes?
Pi cannot sleep at night.
Why can't I shut mine?

Is it something we did?
Is it something we did to them?
Is it something we did?!

[Save me]
I’m trapped in a vile world
[Save me]
Where the endings are the same as every other
We're only here to die
[Save me]
I'm losing my only dream
[Save me]
I can use some guiding light, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know
If you hear me, let me know

Blindness: huge theme in Life of Pi.
Sanity: The debate of whether Pi is insane or completely sane. Brings up how if the person can admit they are insane, that usually means that they are actually in fact perfectly sane. Help me find my way

So, help me find my way

No pulse inside of me, stone cold lips and have seen
All lies into a degree, losing you I wanna be
Find out, what now?
He may be out of his mind
But someday you will find, that sanity has left us all blind And dragged us all behind, a moment seen with those eyes
Crystal blue skies, they say that all beauty must die
I say it just moves on

If you only open your mind, then someday you will find
That sanity left us behind, and walk right through the dark
I can see the picture's clear, it's yesterday, pictures of my own I can hear the voices begging you to stay, but know you're not alone.

Open mindedness, the second story. People whom heard Pi’s story and had a closed mind, they would not even consider that his story was factual and truthful and that he actually experienced. If you are not open minded you cannot see as many or learn as many things as a person with which does have an open mind. [Save me]

I’m trapped in a vile world
[Save me]
Where the endings are the same as every other
We're only here to die
[Save me]
I'm losing my only dream
[Save me]
I can use some guiding light, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know
If you hear me, let me know

Tonight we all die young. [6x]
Tonight we all die
Tonight we all die young!
All beauty must die. The beauty of Pi died, some may say. The beauty of his vegetarianism died the day he ate a fish. The beauty of Pi’s youthfulness died the day the ship sank and killed his family.
