"I Don't Need To Know" as written by and Dallas Green....
I don't need to know
Why the oceans blue or how the flowers grow
I don't need to live...
Waiting on someone to forgive me for my sins
Like my father before...
Me I'm a working man, a working man
But I don't need to beleive...
In the something that won't save my sanity
No I don't need
I don't need to know
No I don't need to knoooow
I don't need to knooow
I don't need to knooow
I don't want to live...
In a world where faces change from day to day
And I don't want my life to be...
Soo full of doubt and misery
The years now pass with out a trace
Its something that I am learning to embrace
How most fun nights are spent awake
Thinking about how I don't want to live that way
No I don't want I don't want to live
No I don't want to live
I don't want to live
I don't want to live
I don't know what I've been told
But if you don't believe the devil owns your soul
Well if this is the truth then to hell I go
'Cause I don't need to know

    General CommentI don't judge people who don't believe in God, even if I do believe in Him. But I still love Dallas Green's songs. And it seriously sounds like God Himself touched Dallas Green's voice box, because he has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. Just simply listening to him could bring me to tears because it's just so overwhelming to hear him sing. <3

    General CommentI think Dallas is expressing how he may see the values of most people differently. And how sometimes knowing makes you bad or different. So its better not to know. Or you can be doubtful... or "full of misery".

    His mind is beuty. He's so amazing. To me, the song made me realize how I am not alone, but not knowing sometimes is best.

    Its "the devils owns your soul" :)

    Song MeaningI really enjoy this song for it's positive take on the absence of religion. It's not just saying he doesn't believe in God, it's saying he doesn't find the need to. "I don't know to know why the ocean's blue or the flowers grow." It's pretty obvious what we is trying to say, and the upbeat music is definitely a contributor to the meaning. =) He doesn't feel the need to have some higher power explain the beauty of the world. Also, he knows that believing in God won't save him from misery and problems...He'll still be faced with life. While even there's a negative verse, it says "it's something I'm learning to embrace." These are really words I live by...He is embracing the misery and pain that he's given, he doesn't feel the need to pray to make it go away, he's just found a way to live with it. =) I adore this song.<3
