Lyrics

EXISTENTIAL BLUES

Lately been living in a big black hole
Don?t even have an excuse
Staring at my navel, searching my soul
Seeking the right guru

Eat a low fat diet, do my exercises
I mind my p?s and q?s
I?m still stuck in a midlife crisis
With the existential blues

Is there life ever after, are we just a splatter
On the canvas of the universe
Naked apes ignoring, life is nothing more than
A couple of spins on earth

Some say it?s Jesus, some say it?s Allah
Some don?t know which way to choose
Me I?m sitting here hemming and hawing
With the existential blues
I was born lucky in the land of the free
Middle class dream come true
Why do I struggle, why aren?t I happy
Why do I feel so confused?

Tried past life regression, astral projection
Analyzed my deja vu?s
No therapy session could give me protection
From the existential blues

Is there life ever after, are we just a splatter
On the canvas of the universe
Naked apes ignoring, life is nothing more than
A couple of spins on earth

Accept what is, I?ll make that my biz
Then I?ve got nothing to lose
?Cause every day?s a hypothesis
With the existential blues
