The lonely loonies on the playground
reveal their shadows to the day
they crash in planes on smack and weird sounds
and leaves us gold upon their graves
our lives becomes less ordinary
show us that it doesn't hurt to die

Is it so gorgeous?
Is it enchanted?
Ís it revealing...

I feel so lucky I have seen you
and rapture spread among the crowd
I wish for once I could have met you
before they wrapped you in a shroud
the giants always get their heads chopped
or drown in muddy waters in the south

Is it so gorgeous?
Is it enchanted?
Is it forever...

Is it so gorgeous?
Is it enchanted?
Is it eternal...

With a rude tongue dressed in spiteful eloquence, you would call...
calling for a love that never came
you would wait, you would call
and you'd wait and you'd (call)

Back here I am in search of answers
I won't accept what I was told
It's only fair to die from cancer
when you're old enough to say you're old...
The reverb you left is never over
tolling for the only one who is not present,

still so gorgeous!
so enchanted!
so forever...

Is it so gorgeous?
Is it enhanted?
Is it eternal...

is it soooooo....

Is it so gorgeous?
Is it enchanted?
Is it forever...

Is it so gorgeous,
Is it tomorrow...

    General CommentIn a song about death, the final line is so chilling.

    "Is it tomorrow?"

    General CommentAccording to the lead singer of Kashmir, Kasper Eistrup, this song was written directly to one of his close friends, who was ill of cancer at the time The Good Life album was being recorded. Sadly, he eventually died from his illness.

    General Commentmakes sense that it should be about his friend who was suffering from cancer, but i believe it is a general comment on life and death aswell. i think the first makes this plain. it seems he's asking or seeking an answer to the corruption and decay in modern wellfare society embodied by the junkies left to themselves on the playground. I especially like the last line of the verse where it seems he's implying how we prosper off the death of the damned.
