lyrics

We got a thirst for knowledge, soon as man was conceived. From the ancient Greeks to the Ivy league. But we found no cure for this world of suffering. Still philosophizing, war still raging. I found no virtue in knowing everything.

Don't wanna be like Adam, don't wanna be like Eve. Pole dancing with Satan, winding up down on my knees.
East of the garden there was oppression and disease. But it's hard to unlearn a lie you love to believe.
Still I found no freedom in doing just like I please.

See the new world leader winning hearts in every town. Paraded like a saviour, five years later he's a clown.
Knows all the facts and the figures, and he talks with style. It'll win him power for a little while.
But in the end it's the same old story. He won't admit where he's been weak. All we hear is blame shifting, and promises no man can keep.
And it finds no cure for this world of suffering. Still philosophizing, war still raging. I found no virtue in knowing everything.

I found no virtue in knowing everything.
