A student explained that their song was about the fact that nobody controls anything, that everything happening is beyond your control. The Earth is suspended in space among who knows how many planets, how many universes, all beyond your control. The weather happens beyond your control. The body you experience life through is endlessly running programs you do not control, the growth of your hair, nails, the repair of cuts, bruises, the filtration through kidneys or the liver – you are not positioned to control any of it. You do not make the heart beat that is beating. The chorus of his song questioned why then people believe they can control themselves?
