"Trick to life" as written by Irwin Sparkes, Martin Skarendahl and Alan Sharland....
Everything you love turns to dust,
You'd make more of it but you felt rushed,
By all that's periphery,
You held tight, but on the contrary,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

You'd kill for answers but learn to live with,
Questions, Who what why how and if,
I'll sit back detached tear our your hair,
Oh but on the contrary

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Everyone you love turns to dust,
You'd jump off the edge but you felt pushed,
By all that's unnecessary,
You tread but you're off on the wrong foot,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Don't get attached to, attached to life,
Don't get attached to, attached to life,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Don't look your life passed you by,
'Cause you're too attached to it,
Don't look your life passed you by,
'Cause you're too attached to it

    General CommentI love this song. I mean the melody is phenomenal (the chorus in particular :)). Its meaning is pretty sarcastic and macabre if you think about it but none the less a great song.

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song, and don't understand why its not up there with Goodbye Mr. A and Worried About Ray. Possibly its about not getting attached to the way your life is at the moment, because it's bound to change, and one needs to adjust?

    My InterpretationI think this song tells us..not to get too attached to anything because in the end..we'll be hurt..because everything we love(or get attached to) will not necessarily turn to dust..but go away or stop..or end. whether it be a boyfriend, girlfriend, the relationship itself, or materialistic possessions, perhaps a way of life. like in.the.dark said..life is bound to change.

    General CommentI thought the point was don't get too attached to being alive, because it won't last.
