Song Description

Uptempo Stones-ish rock song about searching for life's meaning in the aftermath of loss. From the album 'Pop Philosophy'. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

I'm bereft, I'm bereaved
I've been swept out to sea
And I need to make head or tail
Someone drew their last breath
When they weren't ready yet
And it feels like the great betrayal

Is it an insult to their memory
If I should take this world so seriously?

I'm looking into it
And I'm working alone
I'm looking into it
So don't wait by the phone

You were looking into it
The appropriate way to live
When you found you were out of time
Maybe we can't solve the questions
That have floored all the best minds
But I'm sure going to have fun trying

Is it an insult to their memory
If I don't take this world so seriously?

I'm looking into it
Pouring over the clues
I'm looking into it
Just suspicions won't do

Well life tastes so poor
And the portions are so small
We're getting to the nub
Yeah life tastes so poor
And the portions are so small
Yeah therein lies the rub

I'm bereft, I'm bereaved
I've been left all at sea
And I need some kind of recourse
We know far greater brains
Have collapsed from the strain
You could end up hugging a horse

It is a tribute to your legacy
That I approach this work so seriously

I'm looking into it
Like there's something to prove
I'm looking into it
I may never be through
I'm looking back to it
Let me get back to you
