"According to Plan" as written by and Daniel Robin Layus....
It's like life imitating life,
Constantly repeating history until it's blind
It's like time only speaks in rhymes
Repeating repetition til you're lost inside your mind

Was I a terminal distraction?
Or just a chemical reaction?

Or is it chance or is it fate?
Was I just standing in your way?

I find it hard to understand
How you love this ordinary man
And so extraordinarily
Maybe it's all unraveling according to plan

It's like life imitating life
Constantly revolving round the tips of sharpened knives
It's like time draws a crooked line
Repeating shapes and patterns til it just can't be defined

Is it a critical invention?
Or just fulfilling it's intention?

Or is it chance or is it fate?
Or are we simply meant to wait?

I find it hard to understand
Yeah that it's all left up to chance
And so arbitrarily
But if she sees something in me

It must be life imitating life
Manipulating varying degrees of wrong and right

I guess it might just possibly
May be all unraveling according to plan

    My InterpretationPerhaps this song speaks about a guy having a crush on this girl, but doubting whether the girl has the same feelings about him or not.

    Perhaps, we've all been through a phase where we had an infatuation for someone. Yet, it may be unclear, fuzzy, and confusing. "Was I a terminal distraction? Or just a chemical reaction? Or is it chance or is it fate? Was I just standing in your way? I find it hard to understand..."

    We then contradict ourselves, and wonder if that person likes us or not, if they do feel the same way, how could they love someone like us? "I find it hard to understand How you love this ordinary man And so extraordinarily Maybe it's all unraveling according to plan."

    Yet if the person does see something in us, and has a mutual interest in us as well, then things will slowly starting to reveal itself. We just have to wait and let fate play it's role."Yeah that it's all left up to chance And so arbitrarily But if she sees something in me...I guess it might just possibly May be all unraveling according to plan." = MUTUAL LOVE.
