Boring as bat-shit you people make me feel so
Curious and I don't know why
You think you'll end up in the sky

Happy as Larry and riding sheep on clouds
Well I'd prefer enthusiasm while you're here with me

So stop
Don't get carried away
Darling don't you understand that every time we wave our hands we're cool
We're fucking amazing
We dropped down from some other dimension just to be with you

Don't stress
That's dumb
I'm here
And it's nice to be alive

Chill out
It's all right
Kiss me
It's nice to be alive

Lovers need lovers and I'm impressed by all the
Goods out on display
I don't know what to say

I'm thinking I'm thinking woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I prefer enthusiasm while you're here with me

So stop
Don't get carried away
Darling don't you understand that every time we wave our hands we're cool
We're fucking amazing
We dropped down from some other dimension, just to be with you

Don't stress
That's dumb
I'm here
And it's nice to be alive

Chill out
It's all right
Kiss me
It's nice to be alive


Don't stress
That's dumb
I'm here
And it's nice to be alive

Chill out
It's all right
Kiss me
It's nice to be alive
It's nice to be alive
It's nice to be alive

    General CommentCan't believe I'm the first to comment on this amazing song. Not a lot to look into really just a song about not being held down and just feeling great about life.

    Song MeaningI was listening to Triple J and Sam was talking to The Doctor about this song. He said he wrote it just after reading The God Conspiracy, which I suppose sheds some light on the meaning of the song.

    I feel that this song is a call to live in the moment and enjoy life, without structuring it by adhering to a religion and 'wasting time' on things that have no tangible reality.
