Who do you believe can put some meaning in your life,
Meaning in your life, meaning in your life?
Who do you conceive to provide you guidance and light,
Guidance and light, guidance and light?
Are they waiting for you in the by and by?
Do you even have to try?

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing,
The future isn't difficult to see.
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions,
deplore">Lament not your vanquished fantasy.
It's only destiny.

Why do you consent to live in ignorance and fear,
Ignorance and fear, ignorance and fear?
Ancient people succumbed to it, can it happen here,
Can it happen here, can it happen here?
Does it make you suffer 'cause you have to die?
Is it best to live a lie?

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing,
The future isn't difficult to see.
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions,
Lament not your vanquished fantasy.
It's only destiny.

Why can't you see?
There ain't no destiny.
For you and me,
There ain't no destiny.
(Why can't you see?) Why can't you see?
(No destiny) (There ain't no destiny) There ain't no destiny.
(Why can't you see?) For you and me,
(No destiny) (There ain't no destiny) There ain't no destiny!

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing,
The future isn't difficult to see.
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions,
Lament not your vanquished fantasy.
It's only destiny.
