Inspired by SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE.

lyrics

Let me be a song singing, a dance dancing, a story telling, a life living.
Let me be a sex sexing, a fix fixing, a joke joking, a love loving.

Birds don’t care at all that life’s replete with human woes.
All the people die, it’s po-tee-weet and so it goes...
We are structured to ask why when there really is no answer.
Is it to make us feel like idiots, oh that’s right, there is no answer.
What if Kilgore trout is right about the hum and fear of cancer
The dimensions that make you sick or pregnant, oh right, there is no answer.

No answer....

So don’t have bad sex, but if you do, don’t concentrate on it.
Concentrate on the good sex, and all the good moments…
That’s all we have. We're bugs, in amber.
That’s all we have. Just love and amber.

Can I be a bug trapped in love?
With my old legs and my young

Time… there’s no suspending it.
It’s just suspending
everything we know in it.
Living has to happen in something.
It happens in time…

What you want is not what you get.
We ask questions with no answer.
We’re the nuts in the nougat.
We’re the bugs in the amber.
Let me be a song singing, a dance dancing, a story telling, a life living.
Let me be a sex sexing, a fix fixing, a joke joking, a love loving.
Birds don’t care at all that life’s replete with human woes.
All the people die, it’s po tee weet and so it goes...
We are structured to ask why when there really is no answer.
Is it to make us feel like idiots, oh that’s right, there is no answer.
What if Kilgore trout is right about the hum and fear of cancer
The dimensions that make you sick or pregnant, oh right, there is no answer.
You don’t need a Delorean
If you're a Tralfamadorian.
No answer, no answer no answer no answer
