"Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear" as written by and Steven Drozd Wayne Coyne....
I woke up from a bad dream
Glad, glad that it wasn't the real thing
Your hand, waiting there for me
Oh yeah, this world is evil, but still
The rest is up to me

I woke up from a sad dream
Glad, glad that it wasn't the real thing
Your sparkle, waiting there for me
Oh yeah, this world is suffering, but still
The rest is up to me

See the moon, falling
Old sun, exploding as
It's going to be a sunny day
Oh yeah, I think it is
Don't you forget it now
It's happening

See the moon, falling
Old sun, exploding as
It's going to be a sunny day
Oh yeah, I think it is
Don't you forget it now
It's happening
That's what's happening
It's just what's happening
That's what's happening
I think it's happening
I think it's happening
I think it's happening
I think it's happening
I think it's happening

    General CommentI can't believe that this hadn't even been put up here until now. Easily one of their best songs... that solo in the middle is devastatingly beautiful.

    General CommentIt defies being labeled as overly sentimental or corny and becomes wholly comforting and life-affirming, like much of their work.

    General Commenta little bit of brilliance.
    it segues beautifully into the beach boys god only knows
    if you play the beginning over the train station sound effects.

    General Commentwe all have fears and maybe trauma in our past, but life goes on.
    there's always light that's worth fighting for... the good things that keep us going.

    i dont know, i love the ambient of this song :)
