Too blind to know your best
Hurrying through the forks without regrets
Different now, every step feels like a mile
All the lights seem to flash and pass you by

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

But don't know which way to turn
Every trifle becoming big concerns
All this time you were chasing dreams
Without knowing what you wanted them to mean

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Who cares in a hundred years from now
All your small steps, all your shitty clouds
Who cares in a hundred years from now
Who'll remember all the players
Who'll remember all the clowns

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So what does this really mean
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

    General CommentI think you're all right in some way. The sentiments are very mixed because it isn't a conclusion he finds, but more the realization that there are some contradictory behaviors and thoughts involved in every day living for most human beings.

    Judging by the tone of the entire album, I would conclude the song is more pessimistic in its direction, pointing more towards the impossibility of this problem ever being resolved.

    I love this song as I've felt the same thing that many of you have. Life is so utterly pointless and most attempts at figuring it all out leave us realizing the illusions of our senses and our entire consciousness. We end up in a state of nothingness consciously, unable to conclude, think, feel, move.

    I do, however, think Jose is attempting, with the entire album, to point out the illusions and the problem of never resolving the major theme and issue. He seems to suggest that although conclusions is a futile thing to strive for in this life, killing ourselves with selfishness or drug use or any such behavior will only kill our time and take from us all that is pointed in the direction of something higher than humanity's plight and position.

    After listening to this album on repeat for weeks at a time when i am 21 years old and prone to drug and alcohol abuse and egotistical exploitation of others as a result of my realizing life's major unsolvable issues, I find that I'm finally seeing what he is attempting to explain.

    We must give give in to this, reflect, and carry on, perhaps not toward anything of resolve, but certainly much more capable of maintaining grace.
