"Goin' On" as written by Michael Ivins, Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne....
We hold our breath 'til the morning comes
And at last the sun shines through
But the night's so hard that it seems impossible
But what else can we do

Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh

Listen you'll hear it
We're gettin' near it
It's comin' I can feel it
'Cause I know you're goin' away

Listen you'll hear it
We're gettin' near it
I know I really fear it
But we pretend it's just another day

Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on

We tell ourselves that it's all just normal
'Til the worst of it is gone
And then you give up and you give out
And you just can't take it
How do we keep going on?

Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh

Listen you'll hear it
We're gettin' near it
It's comin' I can feel it
'Cause I know you're goin' away

Listen you'll hear it
We're gettin' near it
I know I really fear it
But I pretend it's just another day

Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on, uh huh, uh huh
Goin' on
We're goin' on

    General Commentwe are not "ending" as a person, or as a being, but we are "goin on". death is just a doorway, but deep down, all of us, Wayne, we are afraid of it, but it's ok, right?

    General Commentto me this is a song about the end of all that worries and hinders us.
    it's about hope. i think it's a song about humanitarian endurance.
    it's about listening to the still small voice inside of you.
