Lyrics

I've been hypnotized by a giant jar
Of questions about who we are
Which means that my binoculars
Are stuck on to my face

In the Dance of the Philosophy Jig
The little things become so big
Her lips are like a freshly cut fig
And I still can't decide what to order

It's lucky for me I have a friend
Who's soul can usually transcend
The way we all nervously defend
The things we think we know

So I step into the boxing ring
It's Gandhi vs. Comfortable Living
And all of a sudden I start to sing my new favorite mantra

Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason
Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason

So many visions of who I want to be
But never content with just being free
I've memorized all the self-help philosophy
But my brain and heart aren't in agreement

You know I want a cigarette but I don't smoke
That carcinogenic shits' a total joke
On me and you and your lungs that do
Absorb it and save it for later

So now I'm stuck
In indecisive muck
And I hope and pray that luck will pry me out of here

Oh, give me a minute and my mood will change
But my internal compass is not deranged
It sits on a rock observing the range
Of experiences I splash around in
And it whispers to me

Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason
Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason
The sleepy cloud is moving in
Disrupting radar searching for sin
And thus in my delirium I can finally feel peace

So, right now I'm calm inside
I finally pushed my fear aside
The giant fish mouth opens wide
And I return to the ocean I'm made of

Deep inside I have a hunch,
That life is just a glorious lunch
Packed with a rainbow of morsels to munch
That are sweet or sour or bitter

But what the hell do I really know
I love the sea, I love the snow
I love the Yes, I love the No
and the octogenarian in me says to

Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason
Do I because you Love it, and for no other reason
