"Of Course We Know" as written by and Isaac Brock....
The streets are just blankets and we sleep on their silky corpse
Covered up by them, why would we ever want to wake up?
Oh, no

Well, of course, of course, of course, of course
Of course we just do not know

What in hell are we here for?
We just do not know

Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down your own damn soul
Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down your own damn soul
Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down your own damn soul

The end is like cotton that we wear wherever we go
Covered up by this, why would we ever want to try on your clothes?

Well of course, of course, of course, of course
Of course we just do not know

Well, Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down
(Let down your guard)
Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down your own damn soul
Lord lay down, Lord lay down, Lord lay down your only son

Of course we know, ah ah ah ah ah ah

    My InterpretationSuch a brilliant conclusion to the album. Our justification as humans to the destruction of our planet. That we don't know why we are here or what we are supposed to do so we do what we want.

    General Commentforgive me if someone has already made this point, but i was listening to invisible from the wwdbtses and noticed that theres a "of course we know" line about mid way through.

    not sure what the reference means between the two songs but you guys have at it

    General Comment@Hosehound25 I think the world wasnt in dire straights 2000 years ago when Jesus was supposedly there. But it is now.. So if there was a time for Jesus it's now. Right now we have the capability of being amazing. We can stop all our problems if we work together. If we divide and give into our baser instincts we will eventually die out and we are nature's smartest product in 100s of millions of years and our intelligence is wrecking the planet. We overpopulate we are too successful. But with science and philosophy and creativity and manufacturing... With all our endeavors we may be the best thing life has actually produced. We need to reign in our destructive tendencies we need to live again as part of nature and not its slaveholder. So if there is a god and he put his son here. He should come back again. That's the feeling of the album to me.. But I reckon Isaac is an atheist like me. There is no god outside of us. Our best instincts to preserve all life and to flourish as a planet.. That's god.
