Lyrics

A flower is a flower, it is just a flower, it is just a flower
It's not a moonlit night, it it not a skindeep metaphor
Stop trying to search for meaning when you know that there is nothing there
There is no grand scheme, just let it be a flower

Your life is just a life, it is just a life, just another life
If you search for the meaning, there is nothing there, there's nothing anywhere
You're just another bag of skin, you're walking blindly through the backstreets of the universe
But don't be afraid, because it's beautiful

    Everything is following a simple curve
    And you are gonna ride along no matter how you try to swerve
    As pointless as it is, it's going to roll along
    It's going up, it's going up, it's coming down, it's coming down

Our love is just a love, it is just a love, just another love
A stimulation of synapses cause the dopamine reactions.. well, it's just a love
Stop trying to analyze your feelings and explain away the way you feel
Just take my hand, and let it just be a love

This song is just a song, it is just a song, just a pretty song
It's just a bunch of notes I play for you with a catchy melody
Stop trying to search for meaning when you know that there is nothing there
There is no grand point, just let it be a song

i like the song but the second verse is kind of religion racsimĀ

I'm fairly sure religion isn't a race, but I definitely don't shy away from expressing my views. A lot of religious people think that a life without a god and some sort of grand purpose is meaningless and dark, but I see the opposite - I see great beauty in the idea that we're just fleeting bags of skin floating aimlessly through this great black universe. Once our insignificant little blip on the eternal timeline is up, that's it, so the best we can do is to make the most of the moments we have, and do our best to create something beautiful to share with our fellow lottery winners who happen to be sharing this instant on Earth beside us.
