"A Drop In The Ocean" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Seasons of madness fill my mind
A lunar poet trying to find
A conception of what life is all about
Seconds pass me by I greet the minutes
A the hours roll them over
And years will drown the days and months

We are one, we are strangers in the night
Searching for our way to the light
Like an echo of unseen fantasies
That you'll never be able to catch

A drop in the ocean we're sailing upon
The angels of heaven are singing this song
Just souls in the corner of our universe
It seems that it's all we are
A drop in the ocean

Planet caravans sail on and on
In cosmic harmony they go
Within embrace of universal womb
Is it cosmic madness, harmony?
I ask you in my agony
As time won't heal my wounds it makes me numb

We are one, we are strangers in the night
Searching for our way to the light
Like an echo of unseen fantasies
That you'll never be able to catch

A drop in the ocean we're sailing upon
The angels of heaven are singing this song
Just souls in the corner of our universe
It seems that it's all we are

A drop in the ocean we're sailing upon
The angels of heaven are singing this song
Just souls in the corner of our universe
It seems that it's all we are
A drop in the ocean

    General CommentThis song starts off trying to find the meaning of life. Then it explains that no matter how hard you try, you will never really find the true meaning of life; and all we really are are tiny things in the corner of the universe, like drops of water in an ocean.

    General CommentOh yeah it also seems that Tolkki thinks it gives agony to those who think about it, and a numb feeling, probably because of the lack of meaning and the inability to create one. I disagree that we are unable to have meaning, however.
