The world is round 
the world is flat
who cares, you're on it
the sun is moving or the earth is moving
are you moving?
You're cramped up in this little car or
is the car cramped up in you?
you need to go somewhere to be somewhere
are you somewhere if you stay here?
a homeless man has got a bigger house than you
How do you feel bout that?

You're waiting for something to happen
but something is not waiting for you
so why should you wait?
the question is already answered before it's asked
a question can't exist
if there is no answer

you can drink till you fall
can you carry on when you get back up
technology is evil
where do we learn most things?
Life makes no sense
what has life got to do with it?
