Purpose of Life 2.0

A friend brought to my attention the quazi-pop group Pink Martini. Here are some inspirational lyrics from their latest album, "Splendor in the Grass":
All these years of living large
Are starting to do us in
I won’t say it wasn’t fun
But now it has to end
Life is moving oh-so-fast
I think we should take it slow
Rest our heads upon the grass
And listen to it grow...
On the other hand, in the same album their are extending their boundless love and gratitude to New York City - so, I guess, anything they say about the purpose or meaning of life should be taken with a grain of salt.
