    song with existential themes?











    "'cause if you're not really there
    Then the stars don't even matter
    Now I'm filled to the top with fear
    That it's all just a bunch of matter"

    Dear God, I'm really sorry I was ever born
    Dear God, I'm really sorry I'm still alive

    Dear God, I'm such a bum
    Dear God, I'm such scum

    In the world consisted of six tatami mats
    I'm standing still
    Ah, on TV

    People are dying somewhere
    It doesn't matter to me at all but...
    People are dying somewhere
    It doesn't matter to me at all but...

    I feel deadly mournful, I feel deadly mournful
    I feel deadly mournful, I feel deadly mournful

    AaAaAa Blue
    AaAaAa Blue
    AaAaAa Blue
    AaAaAa Blue
    AaAaAa

    Having no time to despise myself,
    I breathe in this small room
    Ah, I'm sorry I'm happy somehow

    People are dying somewhere
    It doesn't matter to me at all but...
    People are dying somewhere
    I don't feel lonely for that at all but...

    If someone precious to me dies,
    I can't get it over forever but
    If a stranger dies,
    I'll forget it soon but for now

    I feel deadly mournful, I feel deadly mournful
    I feel deadly mournful, I feel deadly mournful

    This is how the world works

    "You're a slave to the money then you die"



    "
    Can you hear what I'm saying,
    Got my mind meditating on love, love,
    Feel what I'm saying,
    Got my mind meditating on love, love

    The human condition, the human condition.

    Too much blood, too much hate, turn off the set, there's gotta be something more,
    When Mohamed, Allah, Buddah, Jesus Christ, are knockin' down my door,
    I'm agnostic, in God, but man, she takes a female form,
    There's no time, no space, no law, we're out here on our own.

    Can you hear what I'm saying,
    Got my mind meditating on love, love,
    Feel what I'm saying,
    Got my mind meditating on love, love.

    Check the meaning (the human condition),
    Check the feeling (the human condition).

    Yes it's life, doing its thing, making you cry, making you think,
    Yeah life, dealing its hand, making you cry and you don't understand,
    Life's, doing its thing, making you cry now making you think of,
    Thing, doing its thing, making you cry yeah making you sing".







    "We were born to be alone
    Everybody all alone
    Born alone to be alone
    We'll stand alone forever
    Standing on the world alone
    Learning how to stand alone
    And always to be alone
    We'll be alone forever"



    "I will become this animal
    Perfectly adapted to the music halls
    I will become this animal
    Anomalous appendages
    A non-animal"



    "There was a time when my world was filled with darkness, darkness, darkness
    And I stopped dreaming now I'm supposed to fill it up with something, something , something
    In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody I knew before long long long ago
    But I'm still trying to make my mind up
    Am I free or am I tied up

    I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still, I'm still an animal
    Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
    I'm still an animal

    There is a hole and I tried to fill up with money, money , money
    But it gets bigger to your hopes is always

    Running, running, running

    In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody of who could be strong
    Tell me if I'm wrong
    And now I'm pulling your disguise up
    Or you free or are you tied up"

    ummmm, like every alternative and rock song for the past 40 years??? haven't you had enough already?

    It's like, Ok, fine, I get it, inauthentic people are teh "living dead". That's just great. Can we get a new theme now plz? I don't wanna hear another Nietzsche-coated song lyric for the rest of my life. Even HE would have thought it boring by now.

    And on the open road we came to a sign
    For it was foretold that the weak would inherit
    And nothing would change
    Here we are at the crossroads, standing face to back
    Still afraid to see our eyes
    I feel helpless and alone, trapped on the third stone

    Sitting here sideways on a cold stone floor
    My guitar gently bleeding and wanting more
    When I heard a sound come rapping, tapping on my door

    Hello, Iím happy to meet you
    In your confidence is it safe?
    Sit down Iím happy to greet you
    To feed your greedy dog at the edge of the stage?
    But before, before you slam the door
    Tell me when, tell me why, tell me what this fucking life is for
    We fly through this godless endeavor
    We try to explain the black forever

    I feel helpless and alone, trapped on the third stone

    I feel permanently stoned, this godless endeavor the only cage Iíve known

    Our organic equation has shown itís flaw
    Can we agree to disagree on the concept of god?
    As I lifted up my brother he said to me
    ďAbandon naive realism, surrender thought in cold precisionĒ

    I feel empty and deranged, denied one last epiphany and ushered from the stage

    Thou shalt not question, the role of science is not to eliminate god
    As alternative gods multiply science stands accused of theocide
    Consume, conform

    The children sitting in the trees, they turn to laugh at me
    They tell me that Iím insane, but in my mind I know Iím to blame
    Alone within my lunacy, dementia fills the void within me
    No testament, prayer or diseased lament can heal my wounds
    They are so discontent

    All the faithful fall onto their knees
    And praise the priests of industrial disease

    We contemplate oblivion as we resonate our dissonance
    In godless random interpretation
    The universe still expands, mankind still canít understand
    How to define you, so hide your face and watch us exterminate ourselves over you
    Welcome to the end my friend, the sky has opened




    Through vast valleys I wonder
    To the highest peaks
    On pathways through a wild forgotten landscape
    In search of God, in spite of man
    'til the lost forsaken endless. . .
    This is where I choose to tread

    Fall. . .so shall we fall into the nihil?
    The nothingness that we feel in the arms of the pale
    In the shadow of the grim companion who walks with us

    Here is the landscape
    Here is the sun
    Here in the balance of the earth
    Where is the god?
    Has he fallen and abandoned us?

    As I'm stalked by the shadow of death's hand
    The fire in my heart is forged across the land

    Here at the edge of this world
    Here I gaze at a pantheon of oak, a citadel of stone
    If this grand panorama before me is what you call God. . .
    Then God is not dead

    I walked down to a river and sat in reflection of what had to be done
    An offering of crimson flowed into the water below
    A wound of spirit from which it floated and faded away

    . . .like every hope I've ever had. . .
    . . .like every dream I've ever known. . .
    It washed away in a tide of longing, a longing for a better world
    From my will, my throat, to the river, and into the sea. . .
    . . .wash away. . .
    . . .fade away. . .

    Here is the landscape
    Here is the sun
    Here at the edge of the earth
    Where is the god?
    Has he fallen to ruin?

    As I'm stalked by the shadow of death's hand
    My heathen pride is scarred across the land

    Is this existential?



    And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
    And you may find yourself in another part of the world
    And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
    And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful
    wife
    And you may ask yourself-Well...How did I get here?

    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money's gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    And you may ask yourself
    How do I work this?
    And you may ask yourself
    Where is that large automobile?
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful house!
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful wife!
    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money's gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

    Water dissolving...and water removing
    There is water at the bottom of the ocean
    Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
    Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/in the silent water
    Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money's gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    And you may ask yourself
    What is that beautiful house?
    And you may ask yourself
    Where does that highway go?
    And you may ask yourself
    Am I right?...Am I wrong?
    And you may tell yourself
    MY GOD!...WHAT HAVE I DONE?

    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/in the silent water
    Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money's gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
    Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

    I said existential song, not your own dribbling existential poetry. Song or gtfo. Haha, only kidding..

    I actually don't find a lot of alternative rock to be very existentially themed... not in the way I see it anyway. Here's an original theme for you-

    "songs about superman-ing hoes"



    I think nietzsche would be proud; this might be a splendid example of a modern day manifestation of the ubermensch.
