Grateful Dead Lyrics

"It Doesn't Matter" lyrics

Finished up my masterpiece
Gave it to the thought-police.
Wanta two-way ticket for a one-way ride.
Nothing lasts nor ever will
You get born, then you're over the hill
Try you might, but no one's leavin' alive.
They say what goes up will always come back down.
Looks to me like it just goes around
And around and around.
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
It's alright. It's alright.
The Universe
Is workin' fine tonight.
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
It's OK
Whatever comes to pass
Will just pass right on away.
The future is a sea of dreams
The past a pack of lies it seems.
Walk in glory or crawl to fame
LyricsI only own the surrounding minute
Borrowin' everything that's in it.
Step out on the stage and lose your name.
They say what goes out will always come back in
I don't know, I just like to watch it spin and spin and spin.
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
Have a little faith.
I burn my maps
So I can navigate
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
Have a little hope.
You can't see tomorrow
With a telescope.
We tear down nations with fits and rages
For a paragraph on history's pages.
See those towers in the desert, torn in half.
Whenever you mention Destiny,
You better get rid of that capital D.
Whenever Man plans, it makes God laugh.
Where all this is heading, I can't even guess.
I close my eyes and I just say "yes,"
I say yes yes yes!'
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
Gotta be here now.
Gotta learn to live
In the present somehow.
It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
Your big designs
Look mighty damned small
In the endless halls of time
