I used to believe there were answers
Answers worth trying to find
Ways to make sense and to reason
With a world gone out of its mind

Science cuts keen as a razor
It's pure and it's clean and it's cold
Reason can find all the answers
Or at least that's what I've been told

But math's poor excuse for a feeling
And there's few things as tasteless as pi
Science, she has all the answers
But they're useless to you and to I

Faith too, he has all the answers
For each question he's got at least three
Convenient to have a selection
And pick one with which you agree

Yeah, I used to seek answers
In a world gone out of its mind
But the only answer I've found is
Answers aren't worth trying to find

Things made more sense before I understood them.
