Default Existential Man


They tell me there's
A greater plan
But I still don't
Understand
Life on this planet
Makes no sense
I'm not even sure
We exist

What's it all mean?
Why are we here?
I wish to hell
I didn't care
My father said
Do whatcha can
Just don't be an
Existential Man

I saw a picture
Called pale blue dot
Taken from 4
Billion miles out
This big world
Was a tiny speck
Space and time are
Infinite

What's it all mean?
Why are we here?
I wish to hell
I didn't care
My father said
Do whatcha can
No point being an
Existential Man

I wake in the night
I turn on Coast
It's all Bigfoot, aliens
Crop circles and ghosts

What's it all mean?
Why are we here?
I wish to hell
I didn't care
My father said
Do whatcha can
Can't help being an
Existential Man

The fundamental question feels rather ill-thought out and juvenile, and the absence of structure and cadence only weightens (I know that is not a word, but I want it to be) my point.

Sorry, but it all seems rather light-weight.

EDIT: I will add this

I saw a picture
Called pale blue dot
Taken from 4
Billion miles out
This big world
Was a tiny speck
Space and time are
Infinite

This was potentially interesting.
