Where do we come from
Where do we go
Where do we come from
Where do we go
It's not physics or spirits or magic
The most powerful force on earth
Is the output of our hearts in action
Where do we come from
Where do we go
Where do we come from
Where do we go
What is a sin? Christians tell ya
On the way to the hell that they sell ya
How could anyone believe there's a hell that exists
Just cause its printed in a book placed inside a baby's crib
Whose to choose the Jews, were they the first who knew?
Can you even become one, without genes or I do's?
They seem like they read their books, and then debate the verses
But that doesn't mean they know where we're headed when its curtains
I've heard that the Qur'an implies we're all Gods
That's something I can agree with, though it's packaged up with flaws
Yet another religion that includes a hell and heaven
Why preach in ways that threaten instead of offering a suggestion
Hindus believe we go somewhere and then come back again
And Buddhists believe in nothingness, so how'd it all begin?
Why put such trust in ancient scrolls by those who claim to know
Who do not offer evidence of where we come from and where we go
Where do we come from
Where do we go
It's not physics or spirits or magic
The most powerful force on earth
Is the output of our hearts in action
Where do we come from
Where do we go
It seems wrong to create our laws
From texts with stories meant as a tool
So I hope it's not a crime in our land
If I get my teachings from a squirrel
It seems pretty obvious that life's present at conception
Though it was also there before so why'd we make up an exception
Is it lazy or our best that whenever things get messy
We blindly reach for passages we claim came from the heavens
Why when we cannot decide, do we claim faith without a question
I wish someone one had talked to me, cause it took time, tears, and an intention
Not just the violation of my unrequested circumcision
But to own that I have feelings about what's happening to women
What could be so special about new human beings
To sacrifice the one you love, for one that's not yet breathing
Reproduction's not a miracle, when even squirrels can do it
And if there is an afterlife, why wouldn't they be there with us
So who's to say when something's sacred?
Or who's to decide how someone made this?
I just want the truth, though I do believe in something
But if the afterlife's just humans, so much for evolution
Where do we come from
Where do we go
It's not physics or spirits or magic
The most powerful force on earth
Is the output of our hearts in action
Where do we come from
Where do we go
To think of something useful religion has to offer
It's simply not enough that I can have friends for just a dollar
If your utility is proven, then shouldn't we feel liberated
But blood and scars and question marks, leave us humans subjugated
To these words you've thrust on us
Read this, believe this, you must, we trust
Yet the sun and the rain and the earth forms a crust
Claim what you want, I can eat from the mud
We shouldn't need to fear what happens when we're dead
Though I sure do like history, our futures are unread
I wonder how it started, how could they convince the masses
To live in fear perpetually about what will happen after this
Something just seems logical, that it's not so bad what follows
In fact, I think it's great for all, it's as beautiful as the cosmos
In the absence of the truth, religion offers nothing one can use
And their influence over marriage and death is lose-lose
No one should control who you love and make you afraid of where you go
People who don't know you, shouldn't tell you what to know
I might as well just take the leap and go this way alone
And give my chances to the stars and squirrels who say
What ever they want, just listen when they sing
Where do we come from
Where do we go
It's not physics or spirits or magic
The most powerful force on earth
Is the output of our hearts in action
Where do we come from
Where do we go
