"Created" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
I don't know how we were created
but I know we all die

go pick up all your tools and build a roof
I'll pick up all mine and build one too

I just do as I do
That's all I can do

listen to the cars just passing through
help out all those friends that helped you too

you just do as you do
That's all you can do

open up your arms and hold on to
everything you own that owns you too

and just let it all go
because that's all we can do

and that's all we can do

    General CommentI adore this song. I think it's about the course of human life, and how it consists of doing what's inevitably pointless.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It reminds me not to worry about small problems in life. In the end, it really doesn't matter, so do what you do and enjoy it while it lasts.
