In a simple fashion of language and words, Camus masterfully molds a novel through the narrative of one man: Meursault. Occurring from the 1940's, his book, "The Stranger" written through the first-person narrative of its protagonist, Meursault, that makes it possible for the reader to fully understand his actions and character. Throughout his story, Meursault's character grows from part one to part, emerging by an indecisive man lacking feelings into an existential personality who ultimately accepts his passing. "Counting Stars", by A Single Republic was not inspired by or made with the intention to explain Meursault. However, with deeper investigation of these lyrics, a relation is discovered between the significance of the lyrics along with Meursault's particular character. Contained within the song are words that correctly portray the narrative's amoral personality, reaction to his own verdict, also evolution of existential qualities followed with a peaceful acceptance of his passing. Meursault's character lacks the morals and emotion which are anticipated in society, as depicted in the song "Counting Stars," especially from the paragraph at the very first verse beginning with "I feel something so appropriate...". The singer explains his feeling as "I sense something so right/ By doing the wrong thing/ And I feel something really wrong/ By doing the perfect thing". This verse defines a message of mixed morals along with a doubt of what's right and what is wrong on the planet. Similarly, Meursault is a character who - although seems to appears to lack guilt - only has a different understanding of values and morals. Throughout his trial, the opposing attorney creates a debate against Meursault by judging his actions as ethical or immoral. He admits Meursault "had no place in society.
