I USED TO BELIEVE
I used to believe that belief was pivotal
that signing your life on a dotted line
was like a club for the initiated
the way to go, you know what I mean
but doubts have left me blinded by the light
I find life more comfortable not knowing why
and solace in the darkness of a starry night.
Despite the pleadings of suits and cassocks
those moral dimensions never rang true
and the same things will happen anyway
in spite of our united feet of clay
so let's back off, retrace our steps
and take the path of the blind and deaf
who listen to themselves
to discover what lies behind the front.
