We opened the box and looked inside
Two animals, one is dead, one's alive
All we think we know is always wrong
The heavens fell in a thick awful shroud
that covered the earth, but there wasn't a sound
Nobody saw it so nobody heard it
All these equations won't solve the uncertain
Everything's dead until it's alive
Man will exist and then he will die
Just take the ride

See it now
Shift the absurd and the reasoned around
Make it so

Build holy places with towering stones
Open your eyes, its all there inside
Everything gone and forgotten survives
Everything we think we know is wrong
All the lead becomes gold
All the squares get circled
All the graves, emptied and covered up
We toil and we rot and terrible things happened just like I thought
And the cycle carried on until I thought nothing more and heartache was gone
Love it as it is

Whatever the fuck this is
Or destroy it and start again
What we are is in your head
Hell broke loose, the stars unaligned
I looked for a kingdom that I'll never find
All I thought I knew was always wrong
I threw out the map and let go of the reigns
Led by a stranger into the strange
The answer is that there's no answer at all
Everything's dead until it's alive
Man will exist and then he will die

    General Comment"There is no reason not to marvel at every day absurdities. Look where we live. Think about the universe. It’s all improbable and yet it is so. We need to take time to appreciate that once in a while. This song is about having gratitude for the things we have no answers for."
