"I Don't Know" as written by Jill H. Scott, Stanley Marvin Clarke, Michael Garson, Raymond Gomez and Jerry Brown....
Today they asked me, "what do you always seem to find?"
But though I could not answer I'd have lost my way
And I could tell that this ain't right
The morning sunrise seemed to ask me why I tried
To find the strength in people who had never thought about a different way of life
It just doesn't seem that easy

I don't know where to go
I don't know what to be
I don't know how to change from being me
I don't know what to say
Maybe another day
I'll stop getting lost and find my way, home
All I know is gone

But the storms of weather, you know they don't seem to be as bad
If you think there's hope from here and there's a life you should now have
I don't have answers and no questions spring to mind
So here I've ended up now, there's no more signs and the roads are blocked
Aw, man
It just doesn't seem that easy

I don't know where to go
I don't know what to be
I don't know how to change from being me
I don't know what to say
Maybe another day
I'll stop getting lost and find my way, home
All I know is gone

(I see no reason to move on)

I don't know where to go
I don't know what to be
I don't know how to change from being me
I don't know what to say
Maybe another day
I'll stop getting lost and find my way, home
All I know is gone

    General Commentthis song is awesome, and all i have to say... when they sing

    "But the storms of weather, you know they don't seem to be as bad
    If you think there's hope from here and there's a life you should now have
    I don't have answers and no questions spring to mind
    So here I've ended up now, there's no more signs and the roads are blocked
    All night...
    It just doesn't seem that easy"
    in a way you could take that and it could be based on so many things that are going on around this world. I mean most of their songs somewhat talked about this. But that small part could do so much... and you have to say if you read it closer and see my point of view on this, i'm right about it and you'll know what i'm talking about.

    General CommentToday they asked me, "what do you always seem to find?"--that should be fight I believe
    But though I could not answer I'd have lost my way
    And I could tell that this ain't right--he would have been brought down had he thought about why he fights--there isnt rly a reason
    The morning sunrise seemed to ask me why I tried
    To find the strength in people who had never thought about a different way of life--asks me why i tried to fight
    It just doesn't seem that easy-avoiding things, seems too good to be true

    But the storms of weather, you know they don't seem to be as bad
    If you think there's hope from here and there's a life you should now have--things dont seem bad when you ignore the bad and strive for me
    I don't have answers and no questions spring to mind
    So here I've ended up now, there's no more signs and the roads are blocked--by avoiding questions or answers, theres nowhere to go, you're not hurt but you're not getting anywhere

    song is about hiding from things to feel better, but you dont get anywhere, and deep down he realizes this.
