Lyrics

I think, as far as the question of God goes
I wish that science, which is supposed to
Explore these things
Refuses to explore the fundamental question
That is of interest, not only to religious people
But intensely to atheists as well
They spend a lot of time thinking about something
They don't care about, or they pretend they don't care about
That science should spend all their time
They spend time trying to find new galaxies
As if that's important
Since God's an unproven thing, just a hypothesis at this point
I think it would be good to study it
First of all, the scientific method always begins with intuition
Always, always
The scientific method always begins with intuition
Always, always
Einstein used intuition
He did not study things objectively and find things
He was struck with something
And then followed that notion that he had or whatever you call that
It's a wonderful phrase that
The late Australian political philosopher
Ken Minogue, came up with
He identified a certain type of person who is keen
On the revolutionary attitude
Keen to be at the barricades
He called it St. George in Retirement Syndrome

St. George, after slaying the dragon
And getting all the acclaim for slaying a dragon
Might, might be tempted to – to go round the land
Finding more dragons, more dragons to slay
And there being a deficit of dragons in the land
Might end up, swinging his sword at smaller, and smaller beasts
Until, eventually, he might be found swinging his sword into thin air

Well, I don't say that there's no dragon like thing left to slay in our society
I don't say that everything is perfect, but
There is a lot in that, in the
Febrile, furious atmosphere of our times
When things have never been better
I wanna tell you something else
And I wanna make this clear
Don't just listen
Don't just listen

[Chorus]
Do, do, do
Don't just listen
Do, do, do
Don't just listen

Do, I'm not just talking
So, you know, I'm not just talking
I'm doing
And I don't want you to just listen
Put this information to work
Make
Today count
Every day, every day

[Chorus]
Do, do, do
Don't just listen
Do, do, do
Don't just listen

Go forward, get aggressive and attack
Whether it's on the battlefield or on the beat (Akira)
Or in the factory or on the farm or on the construction site
Or on the website
In the garage or in the firehouse, don't hesitate
You've lived a life dominated by doubt and fear
How do you step into bravery?
You know, I actually
Took this question and I answered the question in one word
Step

[Chorus]
Step
Step into bravery
That's how you step into bravery
Take the step
Step
Step into bravery
That's how you step into bravery
Take the step

Step aggressively towards your fear
And that, that step towards your fear is the step into bravery
Because we're scared of what we don't know
And there's only one way to learn
What motivates me?
First of all, with the man in the cave
And this idea and this thought of the enemy
That was a thought that used to drive me
And kinda haunt me and make me get up early and work hard to push myself
Because I knew that somewhere out there, there was an enemy
A real enemy, a real man, a person, a human that was waiting
That was preparing for me
And therefore, I needed to prepare for him
I needed to be ready I needed to be the things I always talk about
I needed to be stronger, faster, and smarter and better
So that when we did meet on the battlefield
I would be ready for that rendezvous, for that meeting, that fate, that battle
And that thought, that thought of the enemy, it absolutely fueled me

[Chorus]
The enemy
That was a thought that used to drive me
And kinda haunt me
The enemy
