Life And Death Piano

whats your take on the meaning of this quote?

“you have piano pupils that hum in the night
when my head tumbles along

imagine me when im not a blur
life is a rut. death might bounce us out.”

i luv this quote. just wanted some opinions on it and what YOU think it means

piano teachers should take an axe to the grand piano before in swallows their energy
