【歌词】

I hear this old story before
Where the people keep on killing for their metaphors
But don't leave much up to the imagination,
So I wanna give this imagery back
But I know it just ain't so easy like that
So I turn the page and read the story again and again and again
It sure seems the same with a different name 
We're breaking and rebuilding and we're growing, always guessing
Never knowing, we're 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 trying, but where is this all leading?
We'll never know
It all happened so much faster than you can say disaster
Want to take a time 
lapse and look at it backwards
Find the last word and 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
We're moments just combusting
We feel certain but we'll never, never know
It 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, we're 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 helping, rebuilding and we're growing
Never know,never know, never know
Knock, knock, coming door to door
To tell you that their metaphor is better than yours
And you can either sink or swim and things are looking pretty grim
If you don't believe in what they're spoon-feeding
It's got no feeling so I read it again and again and again 
It sure seems the same, so many different names
Our hearts are strong, our heads are weak, we'll always be competing
Never knowing, we're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing, confusing
But the truth is, all we got are questions 
We'll never know, never know, never know
