How It Should Be (Sha Sha) Analysis

The singer is mainly talking about nothing, which is what the song portrays from the start.  This quality is what makes it so original and unique.  First, he'll tell a story, and the story holds almost no meaning and if a person told this in a real situation the listener simply wouldn't care.  His story ends tragically, and then the chorus talks about how what he said was nothing, and everyone should talk about nothing, rather than politics or conversation topics that spark conflict.
