Lyrics

[Intro]
Happiness is fleeting
And suffering requires a sustaining meaning
Happiness is fleeting
And suffering requires a sustaining meaning

That place where the meaning and the fact are conjoined
That's the proper place to lecture from
What you wanna do as an academic is tell your students
About something that you've encountered that you've fallen in love with
And to communicate the love that you have for that
And not to say, “Well, you should read this book.”
But to say, “Well, here's this book, and here's what it can open up for you and this is how it does it, this is what you'll gain from it”
There's something in it that's of unbelievable utility, and you have to believe that in order to communicate it
To communicate that commitment you have to beauty and to truth and to literature
Without that beauty, there's no call to higher being
You know and this is also why I've mentioned to people that they should clean up their rooms
That's become quite the internet meme
But I'm really serious about it, 'cause it's really hard to do that
It isn't just that you clean it up
You also make it beautiful

[Chorus]
Make it beautiful
Make it beautiful
Make it beautiful
Make it – Make it beautiful
Make it beautiful
It's really hard to make something beautiful
Make it beautiful
And it's really worthwhile
Make it beautiful
It's really hard to make something beautiful
Make it beautiful
And it's really worthwhile
[Chorus]
Beauty is so valuable and we're so afraid of it
Beauty is so valuable and we're so afraid of it

It's not the only pathway to the divine
Love is one of them I suppose
But beauty, especially for people who have an affinity for beauty, it's like music
It's one of those things you can't argue against
You can't even understand, it just hits you
It just hits you
It's like a vision of the potential future
That if we just got our act together, and beautified things
That's the place that we can inhabit, and that would enoble us
And that’s why Jerusalem, the heavenly city, is paved with gemstones
You know in Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Beauty goes to sleep
And the reason she goes to sleep is because she has parents who are quite old
So they're pretty desperate to have a child, like so many people are now
And they only have one child, like so many people do now
They don't want anything to happen to this child
‘Cause it's like, hey, it's a miracle
And she's the princess, we're not letting anything around her
So they have a big Christening party and they invite everybody
But they don't invite Maleficent, and Maleficent is the terrible mother, she's nature
The thing that goes bump in the night
She's the devil herself, so to speak
She's everything that you don't want your child to encounter
So the King and Queen say, "Well, we just won't invite her to the Christening."
[Chorus]
New age people are creative
But they can't think critically
But they can't think critically
But I can think critically
I – I – I can think critically
New Age people are creative
But they can't think critically
But they can't think critically
But I can think critically
(Yes, I think very deeply)
