The Lyrics

Hey kids get your act together
Think “being” and think “nothing”
Rather than religious tether
Forget the fatted calf, that’s right
Here’s what’s been found
Gotta face existential music
There’s no up or down

Hey, Camus was on it, to some extent Hess’
Had it figured out
E-e-e-existence ere ess’
Sartre a seer philosophical
You have make your own mean-ing
Because all else is moot, a nowhere route
Cuz god is dead as Nietzsche had foreseen
E-e-e-existence ere ess’

Hey kids you gotta get faithless
Do not be blinded
By a heavenly grace quest
Have to survive, the now’s where you belong
It’s quite apparent: death will have you beat
You’ll see in the term that’s long

Hey, Camus was on it and Dostoevsk’
Had it figured out
E-e-e-existence ere ess’
All of them seers philosophical
Lots of brain inside the bean
Because all else is moot, nowhere pursuit
Predestination et al ain’t so keen
E-e-e-existence ere ess’

Existence precedes essence, yeah yeah…

"God is dead"--Nietzsche. "Nietzsche is dead"--God.
