( This could have been about a lot of things but it's not )
( So don't stop and try to look for the message )
( The world moves and it don't ask why )
( Your kids will burn red-hot like the Fourth Of July )

( I could've told about what's inbetween the head and the hand )
( But you don't even understand )
( I could've told about the rise and the fall )
( But this time, I swear it's not about-- ) anything at all!

This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about nuthin' at all
This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about about anyone or anything

( This could've been about alot of things but it's not )
( So don't waste time and look for the meaning )
( You heard so many things you couldn't recall )
( But this time, I swear it's not about-- ) anything at all!

This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about nuthin' at all
This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about about anyone or anything

This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about nuthin' at all

Not anyone, not anything
Not anything, not anyone

Not anyone, not anything
Not anything, not anyone

Not anyone, not anything
Not anything, not anyone

Not anyone, not anything
Not anything at all
Anything at all

This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about nuthin' at all
This ain't a song about nuthin'
This ain't a song about anyone or anything...

( This could've been about a lot of things but it's not )
( So don't stop and try to look for the message )
( This could've been about a lot of things but it's not )
( So don't waste time and look for the meaning... )

    General Commentthis is the best song to listen to, when you wanna relax.

    most of these songs are on par with the matrix motto "free your mind"

    General CommentI disagree with the title and I think Spyder does too as he shouts this ain't a song about noting through out the song, I think that was his intention. I think it is a commentary on how brainless celebs and pop culture has become (and probably always was) and how vacuous consumers of pop culture are. It may be about the dangers of being vacuous in such a chaotic world. The main point wake up.

    consider the first part of the song

    This could have been about a lot of things but it's not )
    So don't stop and try to look for the message
    The world moves and it don't ask why
    ------------------------------------
    Your kids will burn red-hot like the Fourth Of July
    ---------------------------------------------------

    and


    I could've told about what's inbetween the head and the hand
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    But you don't even understand
    ----------------------------------
    I could've told about the rise and the fall
    -------------------------------------------
    ( But this time, I swear it's not about-- ) anything at all!

    and finally

    ( This could've been about alot of things but it's not )
    ( So don't waste time and look for the meaning )
    You heard so many things you couldn't recall
    ----------------------------------------------
    ( But this time, I swear it's not about-- ) anything at all!


    so yeah I wasted my time and looked for the meaning but hey it was pretty obvious seems to be the general theme of that particular underrated album from an underrated band.

    General CommentI too agree this song has a meaning and falls close to PCS.

    look the lyrics specificially
    ( The world moves and it don't ask why )
    ( Your kids will burn red-hot like the Fourth Of July )
    snd
    ( This could've been about a lot of things but it's not )
    ( So don't waste time and look for the meaning... )

    We shouldn't really waste time thinking about small things that probably won't matter - like song lyrics or like PCS says Celebrity News.

    However we should just go accept life and go live it,

    because in the end we will all die so better to live it then worry about than these things.
