    This song makes me think about the human tendency to consume every single thing that we see or experience-especially tragedy and death because the prices of those are so high. Now that we have figured out how to get that "vicariously," "on the tv" without paying the price, its become like a drug. Just as ecstasy creates a short-cut to pleasure, this creates a short-cut to the intense emotions tied to death and tragedy. As with any short-cut, the importance/meaning of the journey is quickly and 'tragically' forgotten while we are all left feeding on the sadness of others. Not exactly a recipe for peace, love and harmony.

    We all die but we feel it is wrong some way but when a person kills hundreds we don't feel sorry for them we are all going to die and we don't notice the history of the problem all we do is walk blindly stepping on things and don't know how much it will effect us in the future we lead blindly not know that we are creating a monster inside them inside us its always easy to destroy never easy to build and we destroy our problems simply because we don't like it we weill never learn to cope with things because like I said easy to destroy your problems never easy to cope with problems.
