I woke up with this song in my head….

That happens sometimes, but usually it’s one you’ve heard recently. Don’t think I had listened to this song in quite some time however. Nevertheless, there it was, playing clear as anything in my mind. Found this video of it on YT, where somebody took this beautiful song, so haunting and yet full of sober reflection, and set it against the backdrop of a film-footage-montage that makes for quite an interesting pairing. How much pain and suffering has gone on in the world that was ultimately prompted by the cyclical desire for trivial, temporal things…

“Cycling Trivialities”

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
