The Human Stain Lyrics

[I see the cemetery sky
carmine red and deep
watch the oceans rising high
its the human stain]

talk about the growing hunger
ask why with deep concern
don't you think
the human is ceaselessly vain

but it hurts to be alive my friend
in this...

    To me this song seems to describe the futality of humanity. It expresses the feelings that we as individuals are simply ripples in a lake. One ripple never really changes anything. It all goes on without us. And yet we have the vanity to assume that we are important enough for the very world to revolve around us. We assume that we are the center of the universe, and that without humans nothing would happen. We are even arrogant enough to create deities for the worship of ourselves. After all why would a God create all of these amazing things simply to observe us. The song also expresses the one thing all humans have in common, the one consistent, and inescapable thing about life. Pain. We all experience agony from simply existing. The song also points out how almost everyone who has reached this conclusion desires and escape from this pain, wishing they had never come into existence. We do nothing to deserve life, we believe we are far more important then we are and we fail to see the obvious truths around us. And so we suffer, blindly struggling against the life we've been given, suffering unimaginable pain for the hope that life has a meaning, a purpose. The song if taken literally says that not only you but everyone you ever met is worthless, and that everything you do is worthless. However if this happens to cause you to rethink your life just remember that everything you do is worthless, including dying.
