Acts In Scene - Being and nothingness lyrics
Being and nothingness
A profound alteration of my attitude towards life
An overwhelming sense of anguish
Rejecting any false promise of
Authoritative moral determination
Responsible for choosing which advice to accept
I exist. It's sweet, so sweet, so slow...
Overlooking the truth about what-we-are
No relief, no help, no hope
I exist… so sweet… so slow….
"Hell is other people..."
Into an "other" I suppose
To control the real me
Asking for importance of moral judgments
An artificial expectation about
What we ought-to-be
Anguish over the decision
And despair when it backfires
There is no ultimate meaning or purpose
Inherent in human life
– In this sense life is Absurd
Betraying ourselves by trying to be
Whatever the other person expects us to be
Revealing our lack of the courage to be ourselves
Sincerity or self-deception?
Making a moral decision: it is an act of creation
