Long ago in a dusty village
Full of hunger, pain and strife
A man came forth with a vision of truth
And the way to a better life
He was convinced he had the answer
And he compelled people to follow along
But the hunger never vanished
And the man was banished
And the village dried up and died

At a time when wise men peered
Through brass tubes towards the sky
The heavens changed in predictable ways
And one man was able to find
That he had thought he found the answer
And he was quick to write his revelation
But as they were scrutinized
In his colleagues' eyes
He soon became a mockery

Don't tell me about the answer
'Cause then another one will come along soon
I don't believe you have the answer
I've got ideas too
But if you've got enough naivete
And you've got conviction
And the answer is perfect for you

An urban sprawl sits choking on its discharge
Overwhelmed by industry
Searching for a modern day, savior from another place
Inclined toward charity
Everyone's begging for an answer
Without regard to validity
The searching never ends
It goes on and on and on for eternity

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

Don't tell me about the answer
'Cause then another one will come along soon
I don't believe you have the answer
I've got ideas too
But if you've got enough naivete
And you've got conviction
And the answer is perfect for you
(The answer is perfect for you)
