The Killers – Mr. Brightside Lyrics 6 years ago
Spot on interpretation. Only thing i would say is that this strikes similar chords with ultra rapid bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. Half way through the chorus with the "destiny is calling me" represents, in my mind, a hypomanic shift to being incredibly positive, turning him into Mr. Brightside- the person that everyone knows him to be, even though sometimes he can be down on himself because of his jealousy issues. He says this is just the price he pays because when he is Mr Brightside, everything looks so great for him, why not be down every so often to feel so good. The fact that he repeats the whole thing again is just symbolic of how these types of disorders cycle.
