In the movie dead poets,  Mr Keating said such a sentence:
"Thank you for playing anyway. Because we are food for worms, lads. Because, believe it or not, each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die. "
Which I don't get is " Because we are food for worms, lads. ", so could anybody give a explanation?
Thanks.

FYI.

lad 少年, 小伙子; 老兄, 老弟的意思

所以这句话的意思应该是, "年轻人, 终有一天我们都将会是虫子的食物." 也就是说人都将会走向死亡.
