lyrics

i was looking for a power in being weird
i thought it would be better to be hated and feared
i studied all the lessons of science and art
i learned when to be nice and when to be smart
i saw a lot of loves and a lot of fights
i saw the future in a song that i wrote last night

i watched the pillars crumble in the fall of rome
i waited for the aliens to take me home
i saw the stone idol sink into the island sand
i saw the gold pouring down from the pharoah's hand
i saw man become singular with machine
i saw the forward progression of the human being
oh i saw it all end and i saw it all start
and i saw you there and it broke my heart

i heard jesus on the mountain teaching christian ways
i sat with buddha under palm trees for forty days
i saw krishna and arjuna fighting cosmic wars
and i saw all the other ones who came before
i know the ones who loved and the ones who fought
and i know all the other ones that time forgot

because i was looking for a power in being weird
i thought that it was better to be hated and feared
i spent a life learning about science and art
i learned when to be nice and when to be smart
i saw a lot of love and i saw a lot of fight
i saw the future in a song that i wrote last night
oh yeah
