"Curiosity" as written by John Reuben Zappin and Seth Alan Earnest....
As fast as the world is changing
It’s hard to find anything amazing
Take away the mystery
Find some comfort in the routine
We can’t control what’s behind the scenes

Old men swap conspiracies
Anything to keep it interesting
I believe it all now, faith is risky
Smart enough to confuse myself
How stupid, better get used to it

Both clarity and confusion
Are part of the movement
Open me up, shut me down
Silence is the sweetest sound
Close my mouth and think out loud
I’m in the real world now

That’s just your curiosity
Interrupting the routine
Woke up with nothing under my feet
Looking for something
Looking for something

I know in part, see in part
Spent a lot of time in the dark
Lost in the options
Now I’m listening with caution

Somewhere between imagination and fear
Unsure of what I’m trying to hear
I don’t trust loud and clear
Put a still small voice in my ear

Whisper to me quietly
So I can figure it out
Honestly avoiding noise pollution
And easy to use conclusions

Because some things
Weren’t meant to be spelled out
Still it’s the simple things that count
Close my mind and think out loud
I’m in the real world now

That’s just your curiosity
Interrupting the routine
Woke up with nothing under my feet
Looking for something
Looking for something

Superstition, true religion
The near truth can’t tell the difference
Beautifully written contradictions
Spoken with such conviction

I’ve held a lot of conversations
With well thought out exaggerations
Thin line between insanity and insight
Better hope you’re right

That’s just your curiosity
Interrupting the routine
Woke up with nothing under my feet
Looking for something
Looking for something

That’s just your curiosity
Interrupting the routine
Woke up with nothing under my feet
Looking for something
Looking for something

    General CommentFirst off, this is a brilliant song! Reuben is simply amazing. He never ceases to amaze me.
    OK, to me this song is about a person who has lived their life without a solid life philosophy (or faith or religion to base their life on) and one day "woke up with nothing under my feet". they proceed to look through popular world beliefs and gets "lost in the options" and becomes confused about "what i'm trying to hear".
    By the third verse, they have become very confused by different theories ("superstition, true religion, the near truth cant tell the difference"). In many belief systems, they are finding "beautifully written contradictions spoken with such conviction", for example, the people who sincerely believe that right and wrong are relative, and left up to the individual. These philosophies sound great ("beautifully written"), but dont make sense when they are played out in real life (making them "contradictions").
    this brings us to my favorite line from any song ever: "Thin line between insanity and insight - better hope youre right". so many of these philosophies (relative truth, humans being Gods, all religions worshipping the same Gods) sound like such great insights, but, once you really think about them, they make no sense and become insanity (If truth was relative then serial killers, rapists, even terrorrists arent doing anything wrong, if man is God, then is God all the drunks, murderers, kidnappers, etc., and if all religions worship the same God, why do some consider Jesus God and others just a prophet).
    this is my take. i love this song!
