"God Laughs" as written by Andrew Frampton, Wayne Wilkins, Stephen Alan Kipner and Delta Goodrem....
When you come from a solid foundation
It freaks you out when the ground starts shakin'
And everything around you is breakin'
Mum was goin' crazy together to keep it
Dad's two lives he was keepin' it a secret
When we found out we couldn't believe it

[Chorus]
We're all walking on quicksand
When we're busy makin' our plans, God laughs
We're all walking on quicksand
When we think that we understand, God laughs

I've been a sound board tryin' to be neutral,
Born in the middle, it's hard to be useful,
It's been hell, if I had to be truthful,
Oh! When people grow apart
And people can change
But it leaves a lotta mess
That someone's gotta clean up
It happened here to the family that I love

[Chorus: x3]

And we're so stupid if we think we can control
All the dark matter at the center of this black hole
It's gonna pull us under if we don't let go

[Chorus: x3]

    it freaks you out when the ground starts shaking
    And everything around you is breaking"

    "I've been a sound board, trying to be a new tune
    Born in the middle, it's hard to be useful
    It's been hell, if I had to be truthful
    When people grow apart, people can change, but
    It leaves a lot of mess that someone's gotta clean up
    It happened here to the family I love".

    General CommentNo, I'm pretty sure it's "solid foundation"... The "new tune" part might be true, I'll replace it in the lyrics if I can confirm it

    these are the lyrics from the booklet... I have corrected "when people grow apart AND people can change" based on this, but everything else seems to be correct

    General CommentA song about how God laughs when we try to plan our lives or understand the mysteries of this earth. It's also about Delta's parents breaking up and how that felt for her.

    General Commentthis song is about her parents divorce and its saying that anything can happen at anytime and we dont have control over it.
    but i think the lyrics are quite obviouswhen you read them..
