So You Think You Can Tell Heaven from Hell

The other day I was practicing Pink Floyd's Song Wish You Where Here on my guitar, and in a sudden I started thinking about the first line, well can I really tell heaven from hell, I don't really know, what is heaven to me, for some time I thought if I could just live alone in this world, doing whatever I like, this would be heaven. After a while of living alone in a house with no one around me, I just couldn't stand it, my mind just went off, until lately, you can barley find me home, I'm trying to spend my time anywhere but home, trying to reach every human touch around, that was really Hell for me, perhaps these days I'm going to have a room mate, I'm still afraid of it, but what the hell, I'm going to give it a try.
And like this a lot of things I find in my life.
So what do you think, can you really tell heaven from hell? Lets hear what you have to say.

This is the Lyrics of the song if you want :p

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

i love this song and its words, it makes you think of lots of things when you start listening.
as for beeing alone in home, well at least you have a guitar as you said and i think this will make it easier for you, but try not to think in the words every time you play a song so you dont have to tell heaven from hell ... :D

from my experience, living alone will make you go crazy sometimes... so its better to bring a room mate.

Well, I've been crazy, so now it's kind of normal in my life.
And by the way, if I'm not playing a song, I would be hearing one :p, My hobbies in this world are related to Music, Movies, and Computer. A lot of these manages good with solitude, by the problem arises when solitude turns to loneliness.
The problem with a room mate is that there is somebody in your life who would have part in your privacy, and would affect on your life, that's why I always wanted to live alone, and if the room mate doesn't share your same mood of life, then I guess that would be a big problem, I really hate to compromise for something. Being a friend is far away different than being a room mate, the little things really matters.
Thanks for your comment.
