Dark drive down the five at 75
I am destitute and stranded
Sense to be made, I am afraid
I need to understand it
Ask a stupid question
You get a sideways quote
The reasonable would demand it
It is what it is (what it is)

Thirty years old
Naked and cold
A child without a mission
There always is a deadline
And that's fine
I'll follow the tradition
My audience is baited
I've got it by the throat
The monumental big decision
It is what it is (what it is)

What is it?
What kind?
What type?
What brand?
What influenced its origin?
Well, five in a room
Alive, empty tomb
The fear of doing nothing
A foolish apparition
A donkey in a zebra's coat
All I know is what I say
This one thing
It is what it is (what it is)

    General CommentI think song has something to do with him having these big questions about life and purpose and not having any great answers, just it is what it is, or "just becuase."

    I do think that the line "Well, five in a room, Alive, empty tomb" is about the band (the five in the room) having to acknowledge Jesus' resurection.
