about

Stop worshiping youth, and love your life! This is a song about aging with grace, being honest about your own mortality, facing the music, and having fun doing it.
“It takes guts to love your life”

This is a track about loving life, but more importantly valuing life.
My philosophy is that all value is derived from and predicated on living, and therefore life should be the basis of all values.
This starts with valuing our own lives. This song is a celebration of living. So many of the things people do are hypocritical to valuing life - this song is about imagining a world where we no longer use our lives for anything that undermines the value of life.

It is a fun anti-pop punk song with a deep message, that life itself is the meaning of life.

lyrics

LOVE YOUR LIFE - from "Truth and Fun" by Eight Two

Hey there gorgeous, strike a pose,
It ain’t easy being breezy
Age is a bitter pill to swallow,
You can dye it all away

Live for style, live in denial
So your dreams remain a fantasy
Age is a glitter pill to swallow
F’you can buy it all away

It ain’t easy being breezy
Balayage for the economy
Toss those tresses, strut those dresses
Look lost at your hilarity

Live in style, die in denial
So you’ll never, have to see your dreams turn gray

Age is a fatal, pill to swallow
You decline day by day
Age is an honest pill to swallow
You can lie it all away

It takes guts to love your life
When you stand and face mortality
Not to live fast and self-destruct, before
age can take your lust for life away
We all die, but those we remember, chose
not to fuck the world for posterity
It takes nerve to live with verve,
On your way from time to eternity

It ain’t easy being breezy, yeah

You decline day by day
You can buy it all away

It takes guts to love your life
When you stand and face mortality
Not to live fast and self-destruct, before
age can take your lust for life away
We all die, but those we remember, chose
not to fuck the world for posterity
It takes nerve to live with verve,
On your way from time to eternity

It ain’t easy being breezy, yeah

Love your life, ooh
Love your life, ooh
Love your life, wooh
Love your life, wooh

It takes guts to love your life
When you stand and face mortality
Not to live fast and self-destruct, before
age can take your lust for life away
We all die, but those we remember, chose
not to fuck the world for posterity
It takes nerve to live with verve,
On your way from time to eternity

Love today, yeah

Advanced style calls back fans
Of life after insecurity

Age in style, wither with a smile
Sashay away immaturity

Age is a bitter pill to swallow,
Yesterday is a surgery away
