I've been feeling kind of foolish.
There's nothing up but sky.
And there's someone making toothpicks for us;
one for every tree that has to die.
And I've been feeling so lonely.
and a wolf sleeps at my door.
They've built another car park
'cause God knows we don't need the churches anymore.

I'm feeling kind of lonely;
No emotions for no one.
I'm feeling kind of seasick.
We're stuck now on this journey
and the plan is on the run
This is not an exit.

I dreamt of something lately.
I sank into the mud and grew a head.
And a nice man put me on TV
where the audience choose who and when I wed.

And I've been feeling so lonely,
And the wolf sits at my door,
And they've built another car park.
God knows we don't need the churches anymore.

I'm feeling kind of lonely
on this journey to nowhere.
I'm feeling kind of seasick.

Just need someone to hold me.
All the people turn and stare.
You should all just get to know me.

I'm feeling kind of lonely;
no emotion for no one
I'm feeling kind of seasick.

We're stuck now on this journey
but the plan is on the run.
This is not an exit
until you let it.

All is nothing,
everything is one.
Dream your dreams
and know everything will come.

All is nothing,
everything is one.
Dream your dreams
and know everything will come.


All is nothing,
everything is one.
Dream your dreams
and know everything will come.

All is nothing,
everything is one.
Dream your dreams
and know everything will come.

    Song MeaningThis song uses a sarcastic voice to criticize contemporary society for its wish for self-dependance from all morality, and points to the lack of meaning in life and self-destruction that comes from such a course being taken.
    The singer comentates from the perspective of someone who has bought into the disregard of morality, who is confused at the fact that despite the fact that he does however and whatever he wills, he is disapointed with life and feels lonely and powerless. the sarcasm is apparent in the singers description of his life when he expresses gratitude for "the nice man", in his statement of "we don't need the churches anymore" or more specifically that God knows this (points to the fact that the singer believes that this is the way his life is meant to be and that he blames his lack of self-wort not on his abhorrance of morality but on God, which seems to be the symbol of law, morality not merely in a spiritual/religous sense but more indicative of a source of law such as legalities, traditional morality, natural law, etcetera), the toothpick comment "one for every tree that HAS TO die" (more support for the idea that the singer is convinced this is the way his life is supposed to be, and finnaly in the ending. The ending repeats "all is nothing" several times and proclaims this happily.
    Basically the song states that in our lives we struggle to be independant of power, yet we blame power for not giving our lives meaning.
