I'm trying to tell you something about my life 
Maybe give me insight between black and white 
The best thing you've ever done for me 
Is to help me take my life less seriously, it's only life after all 
Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable 
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear 
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket 
I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it, I'm crawling on your shore. 
 
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains 
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain 
There's more than one answer to these questions 
pointing me in crooked line 
The less I seek my source for some definitive 
The closer I am to fine. 
 
I went to see the doctor of philosophy 
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee 
He never did marry or see a B-grade movie 
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me 
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, got my paper 
And I was free. 
 
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains 
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain 
There's more than one answer to these questions 
pointing me in crooked line 
The less I seek my source for some definitive 
The closer I am to fine. 
 
I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m. 
To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend 
I woke up with a headache like my head against a board 
Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before 
I went in seeking clarity. 
 
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains 
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain 
There's more than one answer to these questions 
pointing me in crooked line 
The less I seek my source for some definitive 
The closer I am to fine. 
 
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains 
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain 
There's more than one answer to these questions 
pointing me in crooked line 
The less I seek my source for some definitive 
The closer I am to fine. 
 
We go to the Bible, we go through the workout 
We read up on revival and we stand up for the lookout 
There's more than one answer to these questions 
pointing me in a crooked line 
The less I seek my source for some definitive 
The closer I am to fine 
The closer I am to fine 
The closer I am to fine
