What is life supposed to mean?
A mystery?
Some mystery.

Who am I supposed to be?
Who am I to be?
Anything?
Is this real or just a dream
Or do I know or just believe
All these feelings that I fear reality?
My eyes are open now I see
With the utmost certainty
That time is leading
It slips away

There is nothing greater than this
No other place or time I know
There is nowhere I'd rather be so why ask for
Why ask for more

So many things to do and see
For me to know, for me to be
I never realized 'til now
What this life means
Means to me

Relive a lie and die each day
pretending it's not happening
but we need it
we all need it to believe

Somebody out there help me please
Give me some peace and set me free
Stop me from making the same mistakes

There is nothing greater than this
No other place or time I know
There is nowhere I'd rather be so why ask for
Why ask for more

What is a worry
There is no hurry
These are the stories of our lives

The moment, the glory
The sound and the fury
These are the stories of our lives

Nothing greater than this
Nothing greater than this

Stop dreaming of fictious places
Just take a look around
Everything you want is right here
Everything you need is now
Everything is yours to try
You are free to change your mind
You don't need a reason why
To spread your wings and touch the sky

    General CommentI think this song explains itself. Live for the moment. Don't try to live a dream, live for what life is.

    "Somebody out there help me please
    Give me some peace and set me free
    Stop me from making the same mistakes" I think he's trying to convey that he's screwed it up in the past and clearly was looking at things wrongly.

    Having realized the way he ought to see life, he's basically coming out and saying that life is what it is. Live it to the fullest and you'll realize it's good enough as it is. Sound good?

    I love this song. It makes me think differently than I ever have.

    General Commentamazing song...we should all just live the moment.

    i think the part is missing is something like this:
    "everything you need is now
    everything is yours to try
    you are free to change your mind
    you don't need a reason why
    to spread your wing and touch the sky"

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song.
    I FUCKING HATED IT.
    I was like,
    This is Informatik,
    This is Industrial.
    Why are they going soft?
    Then I realized.
    It is an amazing song.
    throughout life
    We have rough stages,
    and peaceful stages.
    Clearly Informatik,
    wanted to say something peaceful for their time.
    and I love it.
    I think of this song all of the time.
    its the first one on my profile.
    I finally understand the message he is making,
    and that everyone else got before i did.
    But,
    better late than never.

    My OpinionThis song is sneakily catchy and sounds cool... however, the message behind it is bullshit. There may not be more to life than what we know. It is what it is. But to just cut yourself off from your dreams, find absolute bliss in mediocrity and complacency...? That goes against everything for which Art stands, what Music conveys, etc. Live in reality and you will be dull, lifeless, vapid and gray. Live in dreams, and you may be anything. :D
