lyrics

I never could decide
Whether heaven was a lie
'Cause I don't see it with my eyes
And the more they told me yes
I thought the more I should say no
Until my ideas were just opposites
Of anything I was told
So I built myself a ship and sailed to a place
With no more questions
Assumptions and guesses
And nothing could take me away

I tell you this
Just to say it at all
I'll tell you the truth I've no reason to lie

Cause I've no idea
What I'm doing here
I have no idea
What I'm doing here
But who does?

And eventually the infallible reality
Caught up with me
And told me everything I'd hidden from my ears
It started out a bitter seed
And grew until it came to be
Something of a lifestyle
I've started to hold dear
Because after time I've realized
That nothing is in black and white
And we're all just mixing our batches of grey
and we say it's alright
Because everyone else does it too

I tell you this
Just to say it at all
I'll tell you the truth I've no reason to lie

Cause I've no idea
What I'm doing here
I have no idea
What I'm doing here
But who does?

I have no idea
What I'm doing here
I have no idea
What I'm doing here
But who does?
