The first time that he came to me I was young boy little did I not believe
I had a hole in my heart and I was looking for the missing piece
The next time I was privy to their dirty secrets, all their little hidden clues
And when I added it up I knew a little but a little won't do

Can anybody out there tell me something true
Preferably something that no one can dispute
When everybody's spilling life-long secrets
I'm betting safely on the man who will keep his
Despite his weakness
He'll take his secrets to the grave

I took the medicine, but the pills won't work
The pills they don't do anything but rearrange all the littlest things
And I know a little but that bit won't do
The bit I know is irrelevant
So the songs I sing are irrelevant too and oh

And though I know it'll never ever come to this I have a secret
And that secret is there was a lie that I told myself 'till it became the truth
And rest assured there is a plan B on my mind
If all the webs I weave should ever come to unwind
But if I won't well I've plenty of time

Can anybody out there tell me something true
Preferably something that no one can dispute
When everybody's spilling life-long secrets
I'm betting safely on the man who will keep his
Despite his weakness
He'll take his secrets to the grave

I took the medicine, but the pills won't work
The pills they don't do anything but rearrange all the littlest things
And I know a little bit but that bit won't do
The bit I know is irrelevant
So I guess this song is irrelevant too and...

We will leave this all behind
So get your fill while you're alive
And I don't know where the lies end and the truth begins
Don't listen to anyone telling you anything is the truth, it's all relative

I still believe in mysteries
And all that lies in reveries
And though they'll lay my body in the ground
I plan to never settle down
