Down on the ground
Down on the floor
Crawlin' around, don't know what we're lookin' for

Get on your back
Look at the sky
What are the stars tellin' us tonight?

What are they tellin' us tonight?

Go through the door
Look in the mirror
Is anything gettin' any clearer?

I'm at the mirror
I'm at the mirror
And I've got no idea why I'm here!

I've got no idea why we're here!

[break/solo]

Down on the ground
Down on the floor
Crawlin' around, don't know what we're lookin' for!

Get on your back
Look at the sky
What are the stars tellin' us tonight?!

Go through the door
Look in the mirror
Is anything gettin' any clearer?!

I'm at the mirror
I'm at the mirror
And I've got no idea why I'm here!

I've got no idea why we're here!

    General CommentTo me, it's about how no one can explain what we're meant to do in life as individuals, because no one can predict the future. From birth, we're always told we can grow up to be anything, but it's really a crock because, as much as we'd hate to admit it, we're influenced by many different people and things during our lifetime which shape the decisions we make and the direction our life takes. By the time you realize what your true purpose in life was, your time on earth is almost over.

    Alternately, it could also be a rant about how no one really knows how or why the human race came to pass and what our purpose in the fabric of the universe is. There are a lot of theories that people can choose to believe (various religious traditions, evolution/big bang and other scientific hypotheses, etc.), but none of them have been proven accurate beyond the shadow of a doubt, and most likely never will be. Thus, no one really has any idea why we're here.
