lyrics

Where was it written down
that I should ask for more?

And run from everything
and never ask what for?

Why am I terrified
when I should feel secure?

When all I want to know
just want to know is:

Every answer every meaning
turning over in the aether

Running into lack of reason
I feel life's wasted!

And if I'm giving up control,
I think I really ought to know,

My life's not wasted! Wasted!

And I still can't say I'm not afraid
to die cause I'm not sure,
Is it possible we've simply
just been seduced by the lure,

And that this world is not a vast
and empty sewer?

I'll pay you anything just tell me
what's the cost?

How can I wager if I don't know
what I've lost?

And when I think about it,
it becomes so slow,

When all I wanna know
just wanna know is:
every answer every meaning
turning over, in the aether
running into lack of meaning.
I feel life's wasted.

And if I'm giving up control,
I think I really ought to know,
my life's not wasted, wasted, no!

And I still can't say I'm not afraid
to die cause I'm not sure,
If there's an answer here
or is it only something we endure.

I still don't understand how
you can feel secure!

There's only one thing that I really want to know:

How do you know you're alive? How do you know you're alive? How do you know that?

I don't feel alive, I might be alive, how do you know that?

How do you know you're alive? How do you know you're alive? how do you know that?

I might be alive, I don't feel alive, how do you know that?

How do you know you're alive? How do you know you're alive? How do you know that?
