"We'll Never Know" as written by and Gary Barlow....
Hey you!
I got something you need
The secret's gonna set you free
And everything you think you know it ain't nothing
The sacred truth from the holy light
The daybreak from the darkest night
When all the wandering souls are Looking for something

I'll say it real slow
(For God's sake now you gotta believe)
What you gotta know
(The wisdom's gonna set you free)
The dawn's early light
(God son the Holy light)
Is starting to show
(Your beacon through the darkest night)
We've all been deceived
(Not now but someday you'll see)
You better believe
(What it is to believe)
But we'll never know

The star, cross and the crescent sign
The reason that we pray at night
When you lose you nerve
You know that you gotta serve someone
A prophet or a sacred cow
You know it doesn't matter now
Pick one of the above, it's better than bowing to no one

I'll say it real slow
(For God's sake now you gotta believe)
What you gotta know
(The wisdom's gonna set you free)
The dawn's early light
(God son the Holy light)
Is starting to show
(Your beacon through the darkest night)
We've all been deceived
(Not now but someday you'll see)
You better believe
(What it is to believe)
But we'll never know

'Cause in the end you'll see it's not really what you believe
The only one sure thing is that life's filled with uncertainty
And then the truth could be that life's just one big joke
But We'll never know

We'll never know
[Repeat: x 7]

    General CommentI love this song, it's saying that no one really knows what the truth is and that religions are like easy way outs, even though they are lies. My favorite line is "you know that you gotta serve someone
    a prophet or a sacred cow
    you know it doesn't matter now
    pick one of the above
    it's better than bowin' to no one"

    General CommentIndirectly refers to their song "Salvation" off of "From the Ashes," since that song also discusses the ideas of seeing and believing (plus "reason"). Also, the first couplet reminds me of their song "The Secret" off of their selftitled CD.

    I think that this song leaves possibilities open, it is not sure of religion or anti-religion. If life isn't one big joke, many people could be in trouble, especially if it does matter then what religion they are in the end (whereas in life, "you KNOW it doesn't matter now;" in the afterlife, "we'll never know"). I wonder why they switch from "YOU know" to "WE'LL never know."

    This song also brings to mind Pascal's Wager, a simple philosophical argument from mathematician Blaise Pascal (we all encountered him in high school math), which deals with the idea that we'll never know. However, since we don't know, he maintains that belief in God is the most logical way to self-preserve, since if one lives a godly life, but it turns out there is no god, he will have lived a good life and it won't matter. Whereas if someone rejects God and lives a life without God, but it turns out that He does exist, then that person will be damned forever.
