I've wondered throughout the years, if when facing an utter disaster, the old-cliche "this is going to lead to something good eventually"... Well, even if the most skeptic ones would say "there standard crap is told to prevent suicide statistics grow exponentially", i don't know, somehow, the universe always takes it's toll and repay you for all the bad stuff, at some point....
Quite abstract this one, the lyrics combined are far from telling a structured story, lines dropped here and there -comments on the modern world. However, the title -and main lyric- is more than enough to make this song one of your favourites, I mean, it is a very simple yet functioning answer to the old age question : What is love? - Love is noise.
