Lyrics

Well, here's the thing
Science has only proven maybe, I think
Four things in the history of science
So that the, the
That's why there's a theory of evolution even though
Evolution is, I think certain, it certainly happened
I think evolution certainly happened
Now I could say to you if I wanted to
That it is a theory because they haven't proven it
But I I believe it
When I hear Steven Hawkins say, ''There is no God''
I go, what kind of scientist is that?
I mean, I heard him say that
I heard him say, ''There is no God'' It's a fairytale
That's not a scientist to me
That's the preeminent physicist in the entire world
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
I find like, I have some beliefs that are too inflammatory to even discuss
Unfortunately

[Chorus]
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head

But mostly I find all these things ridiculous
First of all, I hate that we force people into identifying themselves by little, tiny, uh...
Because we oppress people we further oppress them by forcing them to identify themselves as
What I consider less than human
So if someone says, "I am proud to be Black." I go, that's too bad for that guy 'cause it's a retarded thing to be proud of
We see it with White power, if someone says, I'm proud to be White we see how ridiculous that sounds
But we don't see it when a person says because they've been oppressed I'm proud to be Black
But it is ridiculous, we've pushed them into a corner where now they're going to spend their whole life identifying themselves
By the pigment of their skin
Which is a sad waste of life
Or if you say, "I'm proud to be gay. That's what I am and that's how I'll live my life."
Oh boy, you're really limiting yourself there and it's too bad and I know you've been forced into it
By being pushed down and oppressed, but it's still very, very sad
And I don't think of myself as Canadian
And I think it's a terrible thing to say you're proud to be a Canadian or proud to be an American
All that stuff is nonsense
You may as well be proud to have lungs
You didn't accomplish nothing
You were just born somewhere or, you know, you were just born with a skin that's a certain color
Or born with a sexual attraction to a certain type of person. That stuff's all
It's all just little, miniature things in life that are so unimportant
And when people try to tell me that God is not important
But that this nonsense is important
I couldn't disagree more

[Chorus]
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
Because there are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head

[Outro]
There are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
There are certain things in society, that you're not allowed to believe
Or speak publicly
And so I'll just never say them
And I'll just leave them in my little head
