what you want is community.
what you're looking for is roots.
what you need is the answers.
and you won't find them in religion,
no not in religion.

what you're looking for is love.
did you find it in alcohol?
or did you find that you get frustrated
by the way it tells you 'yes' OR 'no' over and over?
i'm not saying it's wrong.
we all go for the easy ones.
just sometime i'd like to sit down
(with you) and focus on the questions.

what happens when the idealistic turn bitter and judgemental,
when all the people and things don't turn out just exactly how they expect?
i understand that people are sensitive,
but i feel like i'm dealing with kids
who think they've got the answers.
and i call it religion.
and i've got no interest in god.
not of any kind.

maybe sometime you and me will get back to
explaining all the things we don't have to.
and i'll learn more than just your name and where you're from.
and you'll drink to the fact that we're human.
and i probably won't drink at all. whatever that says.
