The Magnetic Fields – Meaningless lyrics

You mean it's all been meaningless?
Every whisper and caress?
Yes yes yes it was totally meaningless
Like when two fireflies flouresce
Just like everything I guess
Less less yes, it was utterly meaningless
Even less
A little glimpse of nothingness
Sucking meaning from the
Rest of this mess
Yes yes yes it was thoroughly meaningless
And if some dim bulb should say
We were in love in some way
Kick all his teeth in for me
And if you feel like keeping on kicking,
Feel free
Who dare say it wasn't meaningless?
Shout from the rooftops
And address the press
Ha ha ha, it was totally meaningless
Meaning less than a game of chess
Just like your mother said
And mother knows best
I knew it all the time but now I confess
Yes yes yes how deliciously meaningless
Yes yes yes effervescently meaningless
Yes yes yes it was beautifully meaningless
Yes yes yes it was profoundly meaningless
Yes yes yes definatively meaningless
Yes yes yes comprehensively meaningless
Yes yes yes magnificently meaningless
Yes yes yes how incredibly meaningless
Yes yes yes unprecedentedly meaningless
Yes yes yes how mind-blowingly meaningless
Yes yes yes how unbelievably meaningless
Yes yes yes how infinitely meaningless
