  • How can I hear, how can I see
    When no one really knows how it's gonna be?
    You read it in a book, you hope it isn't true
    And the next thing you know, it's happening to you

    It's been a long time since we took a trip
    To the bottom of a canyon in a rocket ship
    Nothing's resonating in my mind
    So I'm doing my best to be unrefined

    You can always choose, but you don't
    And you could be amused, but you won't
    There's no way to figure it out
    Life's just understood

    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know

    The deaf hear, the blind see
    Just different things than you and me
    The deaf can hear, the blind can see
    That's what I've been told and that's what I believe

    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know

    You can always choose, but you don't
    And you could be amused, but you won't
    There's no way to figure it out
    Life's just understood

    It's been a long way, since the start of it
    And part of the problem is, you're such a part of it
    Seems like whatever we do is null
    Why can't we ever just be left alone?

    The blind see, the deaf hear
    Exactly what is not clear
    The blind can see, the deaf can hear
    Finding out what is my greatest fear

    You wanna move around and you wanna stay still
    You wanna have a life, but not too real
    Don't know what it means, but I know what it's like
    To be floating down the canyon in a rocket bike

    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know
    But really I don't know Writer/s: Doug Martsch
