"Getaways Turned Holidays" as written by and Meg Frampton....
Fate leave on my doorstep
A soldier, a soldier
A fable, a fortune
I long for, I long for

Ever so secret I see
What's in store for me
I won't let it mislead
Oh no.
No, it hasn't happened yet

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

Let us find perfection
And nonsense in all we are
Save defects for later
We're angels for now

Hide my uniform pride
Your arrogant side
I'm aching already
Hide your taciturn, mundane expressions
Affection will carry us a little while more

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

Let us be entertained
Let me believe it ends this way

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
Drop this curtain
I'm happy and naive

    Song MeaningThis Meg & Dia's aethist/agnostic opus. They're saying how they've come to grips that there is no afterlife (in their opinion) and that they are okay with "natural decay". How they also believe that believing in any such afterlife is decieveing themselves.

    General CommentThis song is about living for the here and now. There is nothing after this, which they have resolved themselves to, so they are going to make the fullest of what they have now.

    P.S. This idea comes from the idea that we were all born without a purpose and we are insignificant and worth nothing more than anything else in this plant, such as fish, which births self worship-living for one's self and acting purely on what they believe and want (which isn't just selfishness or greed, kindness comes from this too, I'm not denying that) and this theory comes from the basis of Darwinism. Darwin's theories are what spawned a specific German's ideas about life and compelled him to act upon them. He was able to win other Germans to see things his way, and thus the Jewish genocide was born, along with the killing off of those deemed to weak to survive.
    I just felt the need to point that out.

    General Comment(In response to the last thing posted on my last comment)
    1. Hitler was part Jew
    2. He's a German that created the political party called Nazism.
    3. I wouldn't call Darwin brilliant, just someone who said something that other people took differently than they should have and have used it and twisted it and reworded it.
    4. Darwinism is, at it's core, the belief in evolution. you can't really say evolution is true while Darwinism is not.
    5. I think people should pay more attention to the fact that a.) Darwin never considered himself an atheist-just that he was uncertain about God (agnostic), and b.) Darwin himself stated that if there was no proof to be found of his theory, then it wasn't true. He knew that it was possible since it was just an idea that occurred to him. No evidence has been found showing the proof of evolution, therefore it is not true.
    "I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume in which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived." - Charles Darwin on "Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection"
    6. Also his statement about "survival of the fittest" is wrong as well.
    "But is this the way it really is? We submit to each thinking person that this is not the way it is. The argument against it is painfully simple: if the lay of the jungle were indeed a law, if the survival of the fittest were the way it is, there then would be only one being on earth-the strongest-and that not for long." -Dave Breese
