Throughout describes Holden since he often thinks about death

Throughout the Catcher in the Rye, Holden’s mental state is questioned. At moments, his state of mind is decent, showing he is just like any other teenage boy in the world until we get a peek inside his mind and sanity is debatable. We see that his mentality is crazy just like in the song when it says “I remember when, I remember when I lost my mind”. Holden shows a teenage boy actions like despising school and always dreaming about girls, even though Holden also has a inconsistent and peculiar behavior like his interest with ducks in Central Park. He has been constantly curious and even asked others like asking the taxi driver, “The ducks. Do you know, by any chance? I mean does somebody come around in a truck or something and take them away, or do they fly away by themselves – go south or something?” (91). He has concern for the ducks unlike most teenage boys. We see the resemblance of saving other within both song and Holden. Holden aspired to be the catcher in the rye by rescuing children from falling off a cliff like in the song where it says, “My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb and all I remember, is thinking I wanna be them.”  He aspire to change with all that he has to offer in his life. A part of the song is “and now that you are having the time of your life, well think twice, that’s my only advice” correlates with Holden when he is in his hotel room with the prostitute because he realizes he isn’t ready. He is describing his situation after telling Maurice he wanted to, he thought to himself, “I just didn’t want to do it. I felt more depressed than sexy, if you want to know the truth.” He wanted to have sex but after consideration, he didn’t want to have it because he never has had sex before. “Crazy” has a stanza that includes “I can die when I’m done” which describes Holden since he often thinks about death and even talks about it after his encounter with Maurice in his room. He begins to regret everything and thinks “what I really felt like, though, was committing suicide. I felt like jumping out the window” (116-117). Just like the book, the song is very crazy and all over the place with thoughts.
