#34 Cadillac Ranch by Bruce Springsteen

Death comes for everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from. All the money, beauty, and fame in the world can’t save you. The image of a Cadillac Ranch where these fancy cars are buried with their fancy asses sticking up in the air, and their noses buried six feet underground reminds us of the futility of a live lived in pursuit of excess and riches.
Even something, or someone, as exquisite as a Cadillac is going to face its final day.

The car is going to face a time when nothing can be done to keep it running. Every human faces a time, that no matter what they’ve done to extend or improve their lives, they’re going to shut down completely and forever. Even if a Cadillac can afford a fancier resting place, it’s still long gone and buried like every other car in the junkyard.

  1. You never get to stop and open our eyes
    One minute youre waiting for the sky to fall
    The next youre dazzled by the beauty of it all
    These fragile bodies of touch and taste
    This fragrant skin this hair like lace
    Spirits open to the thrust of grace
    Never a breath you can afford to waste
