In the world of desire, there's a thousand snares
This line confirms the previous line. Snare meaning traps although some fans thought I was referring to a drum. A snare drum is called such because the sound is trapped in. In the world of desires where we are motivated by our lower emotions and enticed by foolish pursuits we therefore find ourselves trapped time and time again. It’s desire that leads the animal to the trap. Whether it’s food water or a mate. Jesus is said to fast for 40 days and nights to conquer desire. We are advised to fast during Hanukkah or Ramadan and other religious traditions to build up defense to our desires and by doing so we are not guided by them into traps the may be detrimental to your being. Even today’s doctors and scientist are prescribing the benefits of fasting.
