«it’s either sadness or euphoria»


So we’ll argue and we’ll compromise
and realize that nothing’s ever changed
for all our mutual experience,
our separate conclusions are the same

Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity
our reason coexists with our insanity
and though we choose between reality and madness
it’s either sadness or euphoria

How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies

Billy Joel, Summer, Highland Falls (1976)
