I heard this old story before
With the people keeping calling for the metaphors But, don't leave much up to the imagination So I want to give this imagery back
But I know it ain't just so easy like that
So, I turn the page and read the story again and again and again Sure seems the same with a different name
We're breaking and rebuilding, and we're growing always guessin'
 Never knowing shocking but we're nothing We're just moments We're clever but we're clueless We're just human Amusing and confusing We're tryin' but where is this all leading We'll never know

It all happens so much faster Than you can say a disaster Want to take a time lapse and look at it back
We found the last one but maybe that's just the answer That we're after but after all
We're just a bubble in a boiling pot
Just one breath in a chain of thought The moment's just combusting Feels certain but we'll never never know
Sure seems the same give it a different name
We're begging, and we're needing and we're trying and we're breathing  Never knowing shocking but we're nothing We're just moments We're clever but clueless We're just human Amusing and confusing We're helping rebuilding and we're growing Never know
 Never know Never know Never know
 Knock knock on a door to door
Tell you that the metaphors is better than yours And you can either sink or swim Things are looking pretty grim
If you don't believe in what feedin'
It's got no feeling so we'll read it again and again and again Sure seems the same, so many different names
Our hearts are strong, our heads are weak, we'll always be competing  Never know we're shocking but we're nothing We're just moments We're clever but clueless We're just human Amusing and confusing But the truth is, all we got's question We'll never know
We'll never know
We'll never know
We'll never know
