We Never Know !

Nev­er Know, Jack Johnson


I heard this old sto­ry before

Where the peo­ple keep on killing for their metaphors

But don’t leave much up to the imagination

So I want to give this imagery back

But I know it just ain’t so easy like that

So I turn the page and read the sto­ry again and again and
again

It sure seems the same with a dif­fer­ent name

We’re break­ing and rebuild­ing and we’re grow­ing, always
guessing

Nev­er knowing

We’re 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 try­ing, but where is this all leading ?

We’ll nev­er know

It all hap­pened so much faster than you can say disaster

Want to take a time-lapse and look at it backwards

From the last word and 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

We’re moments just combusting

We feel cer­tain but we’ll nev­er, nev­er know

It sure seems the same, give it a dif­fer­ent name

We’re beg­gin and we’re need­ing, and we’re try­ing, and we’re
breathing

Nev­er knowing

We’re 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 help­ing, rebuild­ing and we’re growing

Nev­er know

Knock knock, com­ing door to door

To tell you that their metaphor is bet­ter than yours

And you can either sink or swim and things are look­ing pretty
grim

If you don’t believe in what they’re spoon-feeding

It’s got no feel­ing so I read it again and again and again

It sure seems the same, so many dif­fer­ent names

Our hearts are strong, our heads are weak, we’ll always be
competing

Nev­er knowing

We’re shock­ing but we’re nothing

We’re just moments, we’re clever but we’re clueless

We’re just human, amus­ing, confusing

But the truth is all we got are questions

We’ll nev­er know
