sometimes its better not to know where it's coming from
sometimes its better not to ask where its going
we're each just a dot in the big picture and thats the way we like it
it's better not to know

we tell ourselves we couldn't handle the whole story
we ask for the first paragraph and know someone else will then take over
and burning each page when we get to the next, 'til we get to the end
well i'll tell you, in the end we'll all hold hands and burn together
but it's better not to know...

it's better not to know...

sometimes we ask ourselves why are we turning our world into a dump,
turning our key in the ignation, turning away and trying not to look
at the holes burned across the sky to give the sun a better view
of the ice thats slowly drowning us and the cancer that consumes
our small ideas, the corperate mind will never find a sandbag big enough
to stop the flood from taking its life when we all find out
but its better not to know.

so i sit now, watching the tide slowly rise and the sun slowly set
over the gift that we were given but when the wrapping paper was gone
we just kept ripping and ripping
and as the sky sheds its final tear and screams out in vain
i whisper an apology and hope that we can do better next time
but its better not to know.

it's better not to know...
