It seems uncertain
I wish it was forgone
To know the version
That made life go wrong

Wish I had a clue
What rearranged our molecules
Mostly wondering
It seems uncertain

In times of trouble
Everyone joins a team
No one waves a flag
For all human beings

No one’s excited
Unless they are divided
Someone’s going to have to give in
It seems uncertain

I’d like to be
One of the faithful millions
But what I see
Is an excuse for the killing

Your denomination
Should be a private thing
How about a spirit
For all human beings

How could something well guided
Turn out to be divisive
Mostly wondering
It seems uncertain

    General CommentHe's not sure how and why we are here and he can't understand why there are wars over basically nothing. Why does everybody have to be divided? Why draw lines to divide everybody? Why not fly a flag for all human beings instead of individual countries? He's confused about why people act the way they do. If you really think about it he has a valid point.

    General CommentAnother great track off the amazing new Evolver record. I really enjoy Nick questioning religion, in a low-key yet powerful message: "I’d like to be
    One of the faithful millions
    But what I see
    Is an excuse for the killing"
    Religion is used to control the masses. Find your spirituality within.

    General CommentIts crazy how every country has their own flags, thats their team. It is a great divide. And every nation/country/continent/race, or whatever has their own religion. There is only one God and I agree with Nick about it is just one great spirit. That is what the Native Americans beleived too. They were very spiritual. In the Middle East, I think they do use religion as an excuse for killing. Obviously God would not want anyone to kill anyone else. But when 9/11 happened, those hi-jackers thought they were doing it for their God. They are brain-washed. (How could something well guided, Turn out to be divisive)

    Why not just beleive in one great GOOD spirit and always do what you think is right. Thats my religion.
