"Howl" as written by and Baney Winterkorn....
If you weren't told about any divinity
If someone showed you our fallibilities
If you weren't told about the trinity
Would you still know what in the world created all this

Wouldn't you
Like to figure out
What's pulling the strings

Did you know about varying degrees of free will
Compatible with senseless building blocks
Did you know of adaptive or emergent properties
How a lump of grey is making you talk

Now wouldn't you
Like to figure out
What's making you howl

Ill equipped to deal with infinities
Never getting past the anthropic principles
Ill equipped to deal with probabilities
Can't help assigning intentions to all kinds of things

Wouldn't you
Like to figure out
What's pulling your strings

Now we could still talk about moral responsibility
We could still talk about our common human goals
What leads to happiness what leads to suffering
What leads to exuberance and flourishing of the soul

But it would help
To figure out

    General CommentI don't know who this Junip guy is but I love his songs.
    It feels like he is showing me something honest and beautiful.
    Yes, I would like to figure out what's making me howl.
