"The Less I Know" as written by and Maida/paul....
Caught between the stars and underground
I'm climbing up just to get back down
My lips are moving but make no sound
Don't leave me here this way.

Oh God what did I do I had nine lives now I only got two
Tried to call couldn't get through
I wrote a letter, did it get to you?
It said, Dead God life ain't kind
People living, people dyin
I'm putting all my money on hold
The more I learn the less I know

Caught between the stars and underground
I'm climbing up just to get back down
My lips are moving but make no sound
Don't leave me here this way.

Oh no how do you breathe
How do you love and is he a she
I got one hand taking the fifth
One hand making a fist and
Oh God what do I do
I said oh God I'm talking to you
The past the future
The future the past
You think you're looking forward
But you're really looking back

Caught between the stars and underground
I'm climbing up just to get back down
My lips are moving but make no sound
Don't leave me here this way.

This is all the punches that we take
This is making love and sleeping late
This is all the money that we make
That we save for that holiday
This is standing up not backing down
And this is all the tears of a clown
And this is all the gold that was sold at the end of the rainbow.

    General Comment"“The Less I Know” religion…raised catholic. Got over it but still say the Our Father before I take off when flying. Jared Paul speaks at the end of the track. War is on his mind." - Raine Maida
