This song is about that time when you just realized that the world is not what you thought when you were young, you see you're living in a den of thieves trying to find the answers to your problems. We never find them until we die and are at peace. At this time, people finally know you were meaningful and remember you. Once you realize that the world can be evil you can find happiness in the little things like bubble gum and photographs while you still have time. The song is telling us to enjoy our lives.
Despite everything that happens, and everything we see and hear on the news, there are always good things happening too. Even if it is just the smallest thing that makes a person smile even for a second then it was worth doing.
