Stating the obvious.

John Reznik of the Goo Goo Dolls sang

"And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive"

I've always felt that he is just pointing out the obvious. Many seems to feel as if this song has depth.

You fight the tears that are coming. Common.
You can't fight the tears that ain't coming. Exact same meaning, stated the other way round and suddenly its profound.

This is probably how people find The Da Vinci Code interesting. I shouldn't say much as I haven't read the book. Sigh. Seems I can't avoid it forever. I'll have to pick it up soon. After I'm done with it, I will have more to say I'm sure of it.
