Title: About the song killer instinct
Post by: Aredlin on May 30, 2008, 02:35:23 am
It was the first song of Masu that i've heard and I always have ad a doubt.

Why the expression of "cul de sac" in:

We are heading for an evolutionary cul de sac
as our brethren try to take it all back


Because "cul de sac" it's a catalonian expression, so how could Masu have used this words...

and it's commonly used in english to mean the sort of road that ends in a wider area for turning around, like in residential areas.

or more simply, a Dead End.

IE: Evolutionary Dead End.

edit: you know what... Dead End is a weird term.
why Dead?
isn't End sufficient?
that's what it is... the end of the road... go back... slam.
anyway, [/tangent]
