Oh oh oh oh oh
Yeah

You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast
Oh yeah
And they're gone so fast, yeah
Oh
So hold on the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
And when you get old and start losing your hair
Can you tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care?
Oh care

    General CommentI listen to what has been scientifically proven to be superior music to you. This means that not only am I smarter, healthier, fitter and stronger than you. It also means that my life is greater than yours and I will become much more successful than you. Check the rest of the internet, good taste in music is the ultimate sign in superiority.

    This classic art/music shows progressive music finally perfected. Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Yes and Limp Bizkit are also good examples of progressive. Hanson really shows that girls can do much better music than boys. FOOLS! Stop wrongly stating that this is a mere, although fun to listen to ‘teeny bopping’ ‘boy’band. This is true art and if you feel to see the deepness it processes and only enjoy on a basic level you not true Hanson fans. If you look into it, you will enjoy on another level too.

    Having passed an Art degree test on the internet, I am further enlightened in all that is the cultured side of life. This isn’t just a simple song about relationships, further analyze divulges the core of essence. That we love all that is around, but is are love a waste, but is it truly real? This song comes from the 11th Century’s leading Armenian author, Ghazar Kocharian, concept that there is only true entity in existence and that all other things are a figments of its imagination. An example of this would be, in a dream, all the people you meet and places you go are not real. They are created by your mind. Relate this to all existence and reduce the number of true individuals to ‘one’. ‘Bop’ of course, is Latin for ‘delusion’ and ‘mmm’ being the sound you make while you are thinking. Thus, ‘Mind Delusion’

    This song is meant to have many different meanings, everyone I know has misinterpreted this masterpiece, even Hanson misinterpreted their own song stating it was about “How people are looking for love in all the wrong place such as friends, family and television and that real love can only be received from the one true religion ‘Luciferian’, let the lord accept your eternal soul and forever submit yourself to him.”
    Foolish mortals, only I have successfully interperated the true meaning behind this piece, even the original artist was fooled.

    Now knowing the truth, I hate to break it all to you, but you are merely but figments in my mind. I am undeniably the only true entity in all existence and my mind has created you all to create this world just for me. Existence began with me and will end with me. As you undoubtedly have already known, I am god, I created all that you see. I am going to jump off a cliff now, thus erasing you all from existence just so I can laugh at you. So long suckers.
