I've looked under chairs 
I've looked under tables 
I've tried to find the key 
To fifty million fables 
They call me The Seeker 
I've been searching low and high 
I won't get to get what I'm after 
Till the day I die 
I asked Bobby Dylan 
I asked The Beatles 
I asked Timothy Leary 
But he couldn't help me either 
People tend to hate me 
'Cause I never smile 
As I ransack their homes 
They want to shake my hand 
Focusing on nowhere 
Investigating miles 
I'm a seeker 
I'm a really desperate man 
I won't get to get what I'm after 
Till the day I die 
I learned how to raise my voice in anger 
Yeah, but look at my face, ain't this a smile? 
I'm happy when life's good 
And when it's bad I cry 
I've got values but I don't know how or why 
I'm looking for me 
You're looking for you 
We're looking in at each other 
And we don't know what to do
