From Ask Figaro:
There is a line in a song that intrigues me. I have been pondering its meaning and wondered if you could help. The song is by Nightwish. The lyrics are written by Tuomas Halopainen.
Finally, the hills are without eyes
They are tired of painting
a dead man’s face red with his own blood
Apparently, Mr. Halopainen (the stress is on the “painen”) employed a kind of poetry software called LyricShop and slid the bar all the way toward Pretentious.
The song commits the bathetic fallacy, attributing inappropriate emotions to an inanimate object. Figaro’s advice to those tired hills: quit painting.
