by Edgar Brito

"We are all just prisoners here, of our own device."
Imagery
"On a dark desert highway... I saw a shimmering light."
Irony
"You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!"
Allusion
"Plenty of room at the Hotel California"
Hyperbole
"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell."
This is an allusion because the Hotel California is an actual place and it is being used in the song.
This is an example of hyperbole because this is an over exaggeration, no place can be that good or bad.
The line actually means that the is going to be either an amazing experience or a terrible one.
This is ironic because even though they checked out, he couldn't physically leave.
This actually means that they can physically leave the place, but you will always remember everything that you experienced in that place and the memories will never leave you.
This make you imagine seeing them on a dark road and a light up ahead of them.
The dark desert highway represents struggle while the shimmering light represents hope.
This symbolizes that they trapped themselves in California in search of fame and fortune.
This actually means that the choices they made got them trapped in California.
This means that anyone could go to California in search of fame, but not everyone will come out successful.
