A tongue in cheek observation about our deep need to understand the Great Mysteries. "Curiouser and Curiouser! cried Alice..."

lyrics

Rabbit Holes

We forgot the teachings, we lost the artifacts,
But we discovered science, the art of facts,
Ain’t nothing we can’t measure, we’ll know it all someday:
How far it is to heaven, how much does one soul weigh?

But the closer that you look the less it all makes sense
All those particles and waves sittin’ on the fence
And every time you try to find which one is which for sure
They wink at you, trade places, and slip on out the door

Don’t matter how far down you dig
Can’t find no solid ground
It’s rabbit holes and turtles, all the way down
It’s Cheshire cats and vampire bats
And the eerie silent song
Everything’s been singing,
Everything’s been singing
Everything’s been singing all along

But hey, who listens to the background music anyways?
Ain’t we way too busy planning out our busy days?
Days that always end up shy of what you think you’ve got
Left to try to untie your tangled knot.

The closer that you look, the less it all makes sense
It’s all so full of empty but it all looks so dense
Each time you cut a thinner slice from the mystery of life
You’re gonna have to find a little sharper knife

Don’t matter how far down you dig
Can’t find no solid ground
It’s rabbit holes and turtles, all the way down
It’s Cheshire cats and vampire bats
The eerie silent song
Everything’s been singing,
Everything’s been singing
Everything’s been singing
