It's Just An Illusion Caused By The World Spinning 'Round

     The title of this post was taken from the song Do You Realize by The Flaming Lips.

     Today was an okay day. Not an incredible mind blowing kind of day, but it was okay. Most of my posts seem to be pretty depressing lately, it matches my mood, but I thought I'd write about the fairly relaxing evening we've had. I went to the store after work and picked up what I needed to make Sebastian's favorite meal, ham and potato soup. It's not really soup weather yet, but I figured what the hey. The kids played as I prepared dinner. Mike and I loved preparing meals together, and we usually listened to the same album every time we did, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips. We loved this album. So, I turned this on and while I teared up a few times I managed not to break down entirely. The kids did their homework without fusing, and we enjoyed dinner together. They played outside for a bit, and now they are heading to bed. I think it's time for some senseless tv. All in all an okay day. 


Lyrics from the song Do You Realize by The Flaming Lips.


Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face?Do you realize we're floating in space?Do you realize that happiness makes you cry?Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?
And instead of saying all of your goodbyesLet them know you realize that life goes fastIt's hard to make the good things lastYou realize the sun doesn't go downIt's just an illusion caused by the world spinning 'round
Do you realize, ohh?Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?
And instead of saying all of your goodbyesLet them know you realize that life goes fastIt's hard to make the good things lastYou realize the sun doesn't go downIt's just an illusion caused by the world spinning 'round
Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face?Do you realize?
