WELCOME!
I chose the theme of Salvation/ Redemption
The questions I will be focusing on throughout this wiki are as follows:
How can we redeem ourselves when we make an irreversible mistake?
Can we ever go back?
When does the regret for one’s mistake disappear?

Here is an analysis of the lyrics of the song Club Foot by Kasabian, followed by the lyrics, which I felt connected to The Kite Runner very well:

This song seems to me like it starts out inside of Amir's mind, he has inner struggles and is confused and angry with the decisions he has made in his life. Then he sort of comes out of his mind and into reality where Kabul is taken over by the Taliban and he is older, and he goes to save Sohrab to make things right, shown by the line, "All I got is a dirty trick, I'm chasin down the wolves to save ya". The dirty trick is what Rahim said about the family in America, and how they would look after Sohrab when Amir found him. They didn't exist. Rahim lied to make a child's life better and to help Amir find redemption from his mental struggles and his condescending thoughts.

CLUB FOOT
One...take control of me?
Yer messing with the enemy
Said its 2..it's another trick
Messin with my mind, I wake up
Chase down an empty street
Blindly snap the broken beats
Said it's cut with a dirty trick
Its taken all these days to find ya

(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'LL tell you I want you
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I need you

Friends, take control of me
Stalking cross' the gallery
All these pills got to operate
The colour quits and all invade us
There he goes again
Takin' me to the edge again
All I got is a dirty trick
I'm chasin down the wolves to save ya

(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I want you
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I need you
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... the blood aint on my face

(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... Just wanted you near me
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I want you
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I need you
(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... The blood aint on my hands

(Uuh! ah ah ah aha)
I... Just wanted you near me
(ah ah ah aha)
I... I'LL tell you I want you
(ah ah ah aha)
I... I'll tell you I need you
(ah ah ah aha)
I... The blood aint on my face
(ah ah ah aha)
Just wanted you near me
