'Where the street fold round'

This line is in Driven Like The Snow and Under The Gun.
I might be a bit slow off the mark... but what's it refer to?

BTW I just renewed my abandoned account here, and I'm pretty sure this is my first post.

Seeing as its your first post n all....

"Where the sky meets the ground, where the streets fold round"..

might also mean when sung... where this guy meets the ground, the streets fold round being part of the feeling of crashing to the ground as the world whizzes past .

kinda

Mr. Green

The sky's the limit and someone's gone full circle. Mr. Green

edit - I can't leave it. I have to go into it some more. Laughing

Von goes on to say later on: Took a lot to live a lot like you. I think that what he's saying is his ability to control his habit was incredibly small since getting together with her and that he's gone full circle, back to how he was circa 1985. This explains the next line: I don't go there now. The whole white snow thing can be taken as a reference for coke too.

The song was about his breakup with his second (serious?) girlfriend after Claire.

"Where the sky meet the ground" is obviously the horizon, might be a "somewhere over the rainbow" moment for Von. I've always seen "where the street fold round" quite literally, as in a corner. Turning a corner then, maybe?

A few more thoughts on all of this from the archives of the other place: http://www.mail-archive.com/dominion@toybox.twisted.org.uk/msg00176.html

Von does love his horizons, though, and all that they can represent: a long white line; a limit to perception or understanding; something to break on through.

I think Chris (on Dominion) makes an interesting point that, in Crash & Burn, Eldritch seems to at least be considering "break[ing] what he's been given, rather than respect[ing] its fragility," while deciding whether he/his life should be driven (like the snow) or something that he drives.

(Random aside: I have my ~16k itunes library shuffling away happily, and, just as I start writing this, Judy Collins' cover of "The Sisters of Mercy" comes on. Funny old world.)
