More Stories End Titles Stories for Film. In his despair, he shuts himself off from the outside world, shielding himself from it with the jacket and locking his true self inside.
He, at first, doesn't realize he is doing more harm then good for himself by hiding within this 'jacket of woe'. He feels betrayed and victimized by humanity as others rush by him and even knock into him. He is so jaded after a while that he becomes completely unaware when a helping hand comes to aid him.
He buries himself Rabbit In Your Headlights (Underdog Mix) - UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights and Rabbit In Your Headlights (Underdog Mix) - UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights within the confines of the jacket, mistakingly thinking that it will protect him The introversion and hopelessness cause Rabbit In Your Headlights (Underdog Mix) - UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights. After getting knocked down repeatedly, he has an epiphany His fear and introversion are what is causing his downfall.
His lack of faith in humanity had become a lack of faith in himself. In order to break free from this, he must shed his 'jacket' When he sheds this 'jacket', his metamorphasis occurs and change in his life can finally take place. Not only is he empowered, enlightened, and changed, his projection is so powerful that it changes his surroundings and all of those around him, bringing them to a CRASHING halt.
His will is unbreakable His influence on this world will be felt. He has become aware of the pinnacle of all human truths: Mind over matter. Rabbit In Your Headlights (Underdog Mix) - UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights willpower of the human mind, body, and spirit, when harmoniously in accord, can shatter the delusions we have of this life, this world, and this universe When you believe in yourself and you are ready to fearlessly lead by example, your influence can and shall be felt.
Change for the better can occur only at this point. The two are very closely related. The vocal sample mentions that you cannot free yourself of the burdens of this life if you do not make peace with yourself and believe in yourself If you cling to this metaphorical shield, you will only become bitter, jaded, and miserable.
You will only see the world and everybody in it, including yourself, as 'Devils'. Only when you change yourself by ridding yourself of this 'jacket' can you change everything for the better. By accepting what you can and cannot control, you can use the wisdom and knowledge garnered from experience to project your will unto the world. Believing in yourself and your cause; being fearless; confronting your adversaries: general apathy, greed, fear, and negativity; and leading by example and taking action comprise the recipe for change for the better.
In the beginning of the song, the rabbit in the headlights--the victim--is the man. By the end of the song and after the enlightenment and epiphany take place, the man becomes the messiah Never before have I been so reminded of Nietzsche's philosophy as when I read your interpretation. Anyone that wishes to pursue these ideals further would do well to pick up, 'beyond good and evil' and for the record, Drowning By Number 2 - Michael Nyman - Drowning By Numbers totally agree with your interpretation.
ONe thing bothers me though, the constant mumbling throughout the video. He acts as if someone slighted him recently and he is seeking to be fatalistic Rog I've never read a more insightful and more importantly, pertinent explanation. My partner and I have just reached exactly the same conclusions regarding the meaning of this song as we are both of us finding our lives revealing it to be closer to our awareness than either of us realised.
I had tears streaming down my face as I read your words, partly in sadness but mostly in the beauty of feeling a little closer to the cosmos. To anyone else searching for the meaning to this song, you would do well to begin here. Flagged Doombadger on August 29, That's perfect, beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you. As to the muttering, I view it as an aspect of the madness the depths of his jacket of woe present. It reminds me of my mind in the depths of my "Purely Obsessional OCD", a disorder that leads the patient to ruminate obsessively on distressing thoughts and fears and pains and aiming to seek out an answer to the questions they pose to no relief, repeating the same thoughts over and over in the mind or out loud in order to reach some sort of reassurance and clarity in the name of feeling mentally secure, just, righteous and pure.
The man in the jacket overthrows this jacket of the madness that drives him to weigh the world upon his shoulders out of fear and the pain and negativity and delusion by believing in himself and shedding his fears.

He is an idealist, an empath, seeks to avoid conflict and ends up becoming what he feared- soulless, confused and vindictive, internalises everything and battles others because there is ego confusion between him and them. Flag jorgepeter on June 22, No Replies Log in to reply. General Comment I've heard this song and had seen the video long ago.
But have never understood or better yet comprehend anything about what is being said until getting a bit wiser and more experienced. After listening to and reading the lyrics only, the song at its core is about the sample from jb's ladder. The rabbit is representative of one's soul. It avoids the attention it's getting and has no choice but to crawl in its hole. Then he reiterates a point by comparing himself to the wasteful.
