Do You Realize?

“Do You Realize” is my favorite song by the Flaming Lips. The beauty and simplicity of its lyrics bring me to tears, I can’t help it. The song reminds me of how little we’re compared to the universe, just floating in a giant ball of dust, but it also points out how meaningful is everything we do and how beautiful we are. It’s about opposites living in peace: tears and happiness; life and death.

I made this comic mixing the lyrics of ‘Do you realize’ and the idea of Yoshimi from Flaming Lips‘ album “Yoshimi battles the pink robots”. Yoshimi uses her black belt in Karate to defeat the evil-natured robots and try to save the love of her life, who was kidnapped by the pinkest robot of them all. In the process, she realizes how important is every decision; every move and jump she makes. She feels how the world is spinning around her and realizes that no matter how good she is or how bad she tries, all the people she loves someday will die.

    Holy mother of comics! Never heard that song nor the Flaming Lips but man, you’ve just kicked my mind with this. Congrats! You’ve just made a lot of us cry.

    I had never heard of the song before your post on MemeCenter. The song, yes, literally, had me in (slight) tears the first time I listened. I’ve never really been a big fan of music or anything, but this I listen to 24/7. I kept telling my friends to look up the song but never really did until I forced them to hear it, and by then, they said it was the best song that they had ever heard. So Pablo, I want to say thank you. Thank you for showing us this awesome peice of music. And thank you for your awesome art, it just makes my feels meter go ever higher. Keep up the awesome work, man!
