The song "Do You Realize" by The Flaming Lips asks the question, does listener realize that everything is fleeting? The song suggests making use of every moment to ensure that everyone you care about knows you care about them. It tries to make the listener aware that everything belongs to a cycle and that opposites flow in to each other such that happiness can make you cry. Also the fact that even though it seems that the sun sets, its really an illusion caused by the earth spinning and that it is such with our spirits when they seem down.
