Song Description

Epic track with shades of The Beatles, Elliott Smith, The Lightning Seeds, Oasis. About life, death, decay, fate, religion, illusions. From Worldview's "Our Condition" album. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

We can see from the news on our screens
That in some quarters life can be cheap
And if life can be horribly cheap
Well then what could life possibly mean?
And if life can be quickly cut short
Well then what could life really be worth?

But you can't afford to draw from this the obvious conclusions
No you have to live within the mist of positive illusions

You've got to tell yourself
That there's one rule for you and one for everybody else
You've got to tell yourself
It'll come good for you if not for anybody else

If you're claiming that providence rules
Because fate has been smiling on you
Your philosophy doesn't explain
Why for others it deals only pain

Or you chose to trust the Lord above to answer all your prayers
But you can't supply a reason why he never answers theirs

You've got to tell yourself
That there's one rule for you and one for everybody else
You've got to tell yourself
That he'll look out for you and dump on everybody else

It's the only way we can get on
Seeing storylines where there are none
And the knowledge of coming decay
Is a thought we put off till that day

No you're better off protected from reality's intrusions
So you slip the tinted lenses on maintaining your illusions

You've got to kid yourself
That there's one rule for you and one for everybody else
You must convince yourself
There's a purpose for you if not for anybody else
