Entry Description: The theme of this song's lyrics is actually started from expressing the lyricist's messy mood sensed from the autumn scenery before his eyes. The feeling gradually becomes cheerful and elastic because he slowly understands what he yearned for is a peaceful and tranquil life. After all, life is like a dream. He realized that he should follow his fate and live a free and unfettered life, rather than concerning about life burdens and worries. The theme actually covers a lot of Oriental philosophical thinking. The first major topic of the thinking is originated from Tao Yuanming’s Peach Blossom Spring. The land is also known as the Chinese peoples’ collective spiritual sustenance. The second major topic of the thinking is derived from the penultimate sentence of the lyrics, saying "Shall not be affected by windswept, rain or shine." It’s from a very famous ancient Chinese poet Su Dong Po's poem to describe a person experiencing the ups and downs of life and finally adapts to it, feeling open-minded and comfortable. The third major topic of the thinking is called “Zhuang Zhou meng die” in Chinese and it means that “Zhuangzi dreamed he was a butterfly”. It’s a famous ancient Chinese fable come from the Chapter 2 "Discussion on Making All Things Equal" of ZhuangZi’s philosophical book. ZhuangZi was a great ancient Chinese philosopher. He thought that if the human beings can break the boundaries between life and death, or even the boundaries between things and the human beings, then the human beings will gain the true happiness of life. His philosophical thinking was written and manifested in an ethereal manner, so it’s often cited by the philosophers and writers all over the world.
