There's a purpose, there's a goal,
There's virtuous, and immoral,
There's a reason for all of this
And I don't know what it is!

I am one, and plural too,
I accept them, but they exclude,
I could make sense of all of this,
But I don't know what it is!

The seeds of inspiration never germinated in my mind,
The beacon of awakening is somewhere that I can't find.
So I don't know what it is...

There's a beginning, and there's an end,
There's a climax, some would contend,
There's a way to signify this,
But I don't know what it is!

The seeds of inspiration never germinated in my mind,
The beacon of awakening is somewhere that I can't find.
So I don't know what it is.
Show me something more definitive,
I don't know what it is!
