Song Description

Brooding, tense song about the randomness of life and our need for narratives to make sense of it. From the album 'Pop Philosophy'. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

Look to the night sky and its billion points
One for each life that could have easily been yours
And all of the memories that amount to a life
Can always be ended in the glint of a knife

If you believe one thing leads to another
If you insist there's a scheme to uncover

These are stories that we tell ourselves
To join the dots up where they fell
Stories that we tell ourselves

While you're surviving to tell the tale
You'll feel inclined to present a tale
Deep is the instinct to want to divine
Some kind of meaning in the squalor we find

If you believe you've been living your own script
Ignoring each of the pieces that don't fit

These are stories that we tell ourselves
To join the dots up where they fell
They are stories that we tell ourselves
To force some order on our world

The truths of a history that governs your days
Are buried beneath these accounts you create
Demand excavation of a specialist kind
Without reservations about what you may find

All of those conscious justifications
Covering up unknown motivations

No the stories that have made our selves
Are not the ones we on which we dwell
And the stories that we tell ourselves
Are cooked up ones that serve us well
Stories that we sell ourselves
