"Life Makes No Sense"

Everything is turning grey, but I won't hold my breath today
Cause' I'm not scared and to tell the truth I just don't care.
Are you looking for an answer? When you still don't know the question.

It's like lighting candles in the rain-
Sometimes life can be a pain,
But don't give up without a fight.

Sometimes when you feel afraid, don't give up and run away.
Cause' two wrongs don't make a right.
What's the point in crying when you've don nothing wrong.
It was right there all along.

The world's nothing but a lie and everyone is going to die
But what can I say? Just help me make it through today.
You don't need a destination just to go somewhere in life.

It's like throwing feathers at the wind
They come right back to you again.
So why not give it one more try?

Just cause' things aren't what they seem
It doesn't mean you shouldn't dream
Just don't get your hopes to high.
Cause' when things don't turn out right
You world comes crashing down.

    General CommentI can't believe there are no comments on this song! This has to be one of my favorites by the Ataris .. it's so true. I listen to it when I'm really down, because it reminds me that I shouldn't give up and whatnot. A few typos in the lyrics, though.

    General CommentThis song never ceases to amaze me. The message it sets forth is amazing in itself, plus the analogies used just are great in their own right.
    "It's like lighting candles in the rain-
    Sometimes life can be a pain,"

    "It's like throwing feathers at the wind
    They come right back to you again. "

    General CommentThis was the first song I've ever heard by the Ataris, its the best song. Its one of those songs that you listen to and you think to yourself "I'll be alright" And I love the part "The world's nothing but a lie and everyone is going to die"-I wrote that on my bookbag...some kids thought I was weird. Like I'm some depressed person. But I think its a good lyric...and I love this song.
