  • I heard this old story before
    With the people keeping calling for the metaphors
    But, don't leave much up to the imagination
    So I want to give this imagery back
    But I know it ain't just so easy like that
    So, I turn the page and read the story again and again and again
    Sure seems the same with a different name
    We're breaking and rebuilding, and we're growing always guessin'

    Never knowing shocking but we're nothing
    We're just moments
    We're clever but we're clueless
    We're just human
    Amusing and confusing
    We're tryin' but where is this all leading
    We'll never know

    It all happens so much faster
    Than you can say a disaster
    Want to take a time lapse and look at it back
    We found the last one but maybe that's just the answer
    That we're after but after all
    We're just a bubble in a boiling pot
    Just one breath in a chain of thought
    The moment's just combusting
    Feels certain but we'll never never know
    Sure seems the same give it a different name
    We're begging, and we're needing and we're trying and we're breathing

    Never knowing shocking but we're nothing
    We're just moments
    We're clever but clueless
    We're just human
    Amusing and confusing
    We're helping rebuilding and we're growing
    Never know

    Never know
    Never know
    Never know

    Knock knock on a door to door
    Tell you that the metaphors is better than yours
    And you can either sink or swim
    Things are looking pretty grim
    If you don't believe in what feedin'
    It's got no feeling so we'll read it again and again and again
    Sure seems the same, so many different names
    Our hearts are strong, our heads are weak, we'll always be competing

    Never know we're shocking but we're nothing
    We're just moments
    We're clever but clueless
    We're just human
    Amusing and confusing
    But the truth is, all we got's question
    We'll never know
    We'll never know
    We'll never know
    We'll never know Writer/s: Jack Hody Johnson

  • Sky from Arizonagreat meaning and wonderful song!
  • Kyle from Egmondville, CanadaGreat way to point out the problem. This definitely isn't the point of religion, and it's a shame that things like this happen. All you can do is make sure you are tolerant, and hope the world will follow.
